The Henry muzzle measured 0.83 inches across the flats, which put a lot of weight out front. It didn't affect handling, we said. That's light reflection on the barrel edge, not wear.
One of the many things we liked about the Big Boy was the excellent fitting at all the joints. That denotes superior workmanship, which we found throughout the gun.

The sights were easy to see and align.
