If you just want a utilitarian field piece shooter, get a Henry. However, if you're after something special, this is for you. An heirloom quality, Grade II high gloss, engraved masterpiece work of art out of Miroku Japan. 30 deg short throw lever makes for shooting as fast as a semi auto and you never have to move your cheek or disrupt your sight picture.
These rifles only increase in value as years go by. I bought it around 5 years ago after searching nearly 10 years for the perfect shade of wood. If you've looked or lusted after one of these as I did, then you know 99% of the time, they only have 2 shades of wood. Either the really dark almost mahogany, or the really light almost whitewash wood. I searched for over 10 years before finding this one with the perfect in between shade of wood. Not too dark and not the whitewash. Very rare and extremely hard to find this beaut.
If you've been after an heirloom quality 22 lever, your search is over. These things are made in Japan for crying out loud. Just as the most high-end, precision glass and optics in the world, Japanese craftsmanship and fit/finish are second to none and is on a whole other level from say a Henry.
I never fired this rifle. It's brand spankin' new and comes to you factory sealed and packaged in the retail box with all paperwork and accessories included same as I received it straight from the factory. I only removed it from it's packaging to apply a coat of M-22 oil over all the metal and right back in it's plastic it went. Otherwise, never been out of my dehumidified safe since purchasing brand new.
