    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.

    I don't really see .17 HMR as a lever round but... between a Henry and a Ruger? No contest, the Henry by a mile but I'd get a .22 LR.

    I have a Golden Boy, before I bought it you could have handed me that rifle and tell me it cost $1,000 and I'd have believed you. In spite of their corny informercials they make a beautiful lever action rifle.

    I have a Henry lever .22 LR, and LOOOOVE it. I love it so much my next purchase will probably a Henry .22 mag, and then another Henry lever. In a larger but yet undecided cal.

    So of course I say go Henry.

    I just cannot see the wee .17HMR as a proper lever action round. Certainly not for an open-sighted rifle. But IF I decided to get one, it would be the Henry.

    You are replying to a 2008 thread. The .17 calibers have been a real butch to find at times...
    H2 is impossible....

    The HMR has almost never been out of stock for me locally since the shortage began, but the other flavors of .17 have been sporadic.

    When a brand new Member digs up an old thread to REPLY to, why is it an unpardonable sin for anyone else to respond to their comments?
