Golden Boy front sight?

304 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Jive Turkey
My uncle passed away recently and I inherited all his guns. One of them was a Henry Golden boy in 22LR. I'm aware that the receiver is not brass, but the front sight appears to have a brass bead? The sight is kind of dull and wanted to polish it up with some brass polish. I just wanted to confirm that it is indeed brass before polishing?

Welcome to RFC!
Sorry to hear about your uncle passing.
That front bead is brass to my knowledge, and polishing it wont be a problem for you.

Welcome to the forum! Sad to hear about your uncle. Yes, that bead is, indeed, brass and can be polished. I have a couple of Golden Boys myself and my old eyes can't see the brass very well so I painted my front beads with Fluorescent yellow paint...much easier to see now!
I ended up getting Henry's fiber optic hiviz sights. Now I can actually shoot the thing. I miss the days when I could clearly see the brass bead.
