Our lever actions are no strangers to the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting, and Gene Pearcy’s alter ego, Evil Roy, is one of the best-known names in the game. One of the winningest champions in CAS history, Evil Roy hits the trail regularly each year, not just to leave other shooters in the dust at matches, but also to put on his highly-regarded traveling shooting schools. When Gene was looking for a company to produce a rimfire lever action that meets his very specific preferences, he chose Henry, and he knew exactly what he wanted. With his background, we were happy to listen.
Slick and quick, the Evil Roy model features a very distinctive bright (but not too bright) brushed finish on the receiver and a nickel plated barrel band, a short’n handy 17” octagon barrel that balances well and hangs lighter for smaller shooters, an intermediate-length stock to fit everybody from Little Buckaroo CAS shooters on up to full-sized adults, the Frontier’s stock angle with less drop than some of our models (a good fit for scope use), fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear and tall bead front sights, a large-loop lever for style points, and an Evil Roy “signature” branded into the walnut stock at the rear. For competition, braggin’ rights, and just plain fun in a fits-all package, the Evil Roy is a looker that also performs.
“I wanted a great looking short, lightweight but accurate .22 rifle which would meet all my personal needs. Henry Repeating Arms President Anthony Imperato and I have created just such a rifle with the Henry Frontier Carbine “Evil Roy Edition”. It features a short octagon barrel, fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight with beaded front sight, a grooved receiver for easy scope mounting, smooth trigger release, and a medium stock length suitable for both adults and kids. The silver receiver and barrel band with a large loop lever make it a complete package. Perfect.” – Evil Roy
