Plating in firearms began initially as a method of corrosion-proofing in the days of blackpowder ammunition at least 150 years ago. Gunpowder at the time was highly corrosive, and working guns lived hard lives. Later on, plating with precious metals also became more important as decorative methods of creating more elaborately-embellished special-order guns. Nickel was the first as the electro-plating process evolved, and with a long history of tradition it’s still the most popular with its ability to maintain a long-lasting wear and tarnish-resistant finish. It also happens to stand out in a crowd, and that’s exactly what our new Golden Boy Silvers do, with no special-order delays and no special-order pricing.
Available in two “adult” barrel lengths, three rimfire calibers, and configured with octagon barrels, our nicely-figured American walnut stocks, and fully adjustable Marbles semi-buckhorn sights, this beauty features a mirror-bright nickeled receiver cover you can shave in, matching barrel band and buttplate, and a gleam that’ll get you noticed proudly anywhere you shoot it. Covering the gamut from the plinker-friendly .22 Short on out to the flat-shooting .17 HMR with a 20” barrel as a serious rimfire lever-gun varmint buster, the Golden Boy Silver can brighten up any shooter’s day.
