Bolt action's will be more accurate,but the Lever actions aren't far behind.You can still find some nice used Marlin 57M and Winchester 255 short throw lever actions,and both are great guns.Henry makes a 22 magnum Lever action,and although they are pricey now,the Winchester 9422M is a great gun.
Erma Werke EG-73 (German copy of the Winchester 9422M) Bottom rifle in picture-
Would that be the Marlin 57M (.22WMR) at the top of the pic??
Or a 56 (.22LR)?
I freekin LOVE those!! Hard to find...but I did snag a 1963 Marlin 56 from a pawn shop.
Technically its a House-Brand Marlin, made for Sears with the model being the Sears 46C,
and its wearing a Sears Ted Williams 4x scope...and a Marlin leather sling
