New from Uberti: Silver Boy Lever Action .22


Uberti new Silver Boy vs. Henry Repeating Rifle’s Golden Boy. Geddit? “History repeats itself,” Uberti pronounces. Yes, well, I wouldn’t be surprised if Uberti gets a letter from Anthony Imperato’s lawyer in the next week or so with the words “Not so funny now, eh Mr. Bond?” underneath some serious letterhead. [Click here to read TTAG’s review of the most excellent Henry Repeating Arms Golden Boy.] Meanwhile, I’ve got to say it: I prefer silver to gold. And if the $589 Uberti Silver can match the $515 Henry’s quality—a very tough proposition indeed—then game on! Oh, and please take a moment to mourn the passing of Marlin as these two manufacturers eat the storied brand’s lunch.
