    I like the one the first link brings you to. But if I was to get a .22, it would be a Ruger 10/22.

    Yeah i agree with glock. The 17 is more of a long range rimfire. I would get a cheaper round like a 22 for a lever action.

    I have the Henry Youth levergun in .22 (H001Y). My wife, son, and I all love it. It is very accurate and the action is very smooth.

    two things to add. The ruger has been discountinued and are becoming very hard to find. The other is have you looked at the new legacy arms model 92 in 17hmr. I Personally havn't got to put my hand on one yet but if they are anything like the rest of the puma line it should be alot of fun and worth some consideration.

    Henry! The henry will probubly be a lot better made. Unless you are doing long range shooting stick to a .22

    I have 2 Big Boy Henry's, ya just can't beat their actions, they are butter smooth.
    But a 17hmr, I would probably opt out for a Savage Bolt accu-trigger for optimal accuracy.
