The tried and true design of the lever-action rifle is still one that is a favorite of many shooters today for its reliability, and durability. The new meta with lever guns these days is adding various optics on top of the rifle but this was previously only possible with a handful of specific options. XS Sights has just announced their newest aftermarket sight offering with the introduction of their new Lever Rails for Henry Big Boy carbines chambered in .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum, meaning you can take these modern lever-gun offerings and pair them with modern optics.

New Lever Rails for Henry Big Boy Carbines from XS Sights
XS® Sights is pleased to introduce new Lever Rails for Henry Big Boy carbines chambered in .357 Magnum (HN-6001R-N) and .44 Magnum (HN-6002R-N).
The XS Sights Lever Rails are machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and hard coat anodized to provide a lightweight mounting system that is tough enough for a lifetime of service. The rail bolts on to round barrel models of the Henry Big Boy – no gunsmithing required – for a quick, do-it-yourself upgrade. Machined to Mil-Std 1913 Picatinny specifications, the XS Lever Rail extends from the rear of the receiver to the front sight dovetail cut to allow mounting of any optic – red dot, scout scope, or low-powered variable optic (LPVO) – giving you the most versatile mounting platform available.
The XS Sights Lever Rails for the Henry Big Boy carbines are designed for carbines with steel receivers and round barrels. Due to differences in barrel contour, the rails and sights are caliber specific.
The XS Lever Rail will not fit carbines with brass receivers, and it will not fit carbines with octagonal barrels.
The new XS Sights Lever Rails designed for the .357 and .44 Magnum Henry Big Boy Carbines seem to have about the same amount of rail space as the recently released Ruger/Marlin 1895 SLB which has plenty of room for not only a high magnification optic but when paired with something like a red dot and magnifier, still has room on top for a weapon mounted light or even an IR or laser aiming device. Each XS Sights Lever Rail will be sold for $72. For more information, you can visit http://xssights.com/.
