Thank you. I'm thrilled with it. I've wanted one for a long time now. The paint job was a surprise bonus.

Thank you very much. I think it's beautiful. And it is a sweet shooter, too. It did get mixed reviews at the gun shop we did the FFL transfer. You either like it or you don't. LOL

Gotta get a lever .22 for my DW... But I don't think she wants pink camo...I think she wants it in black furniture with a stainless barrel, like the .410 she wants.....

Gotta like it even if its not your grandpa's shooter! Certainly not Tactical unless your in smurfville but its pretty all the same. Funny, when I was young, guns didnt have a color, just tone! Honestly, I dont recall a single conversation about color ever but choices were pretty slim, Either a light or Dark finish and Blued or Nickle plated.

Now you need a pink horse to match your Colorful Lever- Longarm, that could be a little tougher to come by!

I am so excited I could scream. Wait, I did scream. Balota came to visit and this is a gift he bought me. You know how I've been wanting one of these for a long time. Well, this was more than I ever hoped to have. Get a load of that paint job.

Feast your eyes on this. My new Henry Lever Youth model. You can't slap that smile off my face. Thank you, Balota! I love it!!

Brand new in the box!

Get a good look at this paint job and eat your heart out. Especially you, JonM. Hahahaha........

We went shooting with JonM and here is my new rifle getting a work out. It was general consensus that it is a mighty fine rifle. I just need to scope it.

JonM shooting my new love.


Balota getting his turn with the beautiful rifle.


The RO suggested I get a mat to lay the gun down on so as not to scratch it up. I suggested he offer me his shirt to lay my gun on. He saw right through me and refused to take off his shirt. DAMMIT!!

This rifle shot like a dream. The lever action is smooth and sweet, as is the trigger. I love this rifle. Yep, I love it. It's my first long gun and I couldn't be happier.

And what is so wonderful is it is just the right size for me and it's not heavy at all. It's probably the first rifle I ever fired that fit me well. It was juuuust right!!! And I plan to share it with my granddaughter, too.
I learned alot from that. Nice gift Balota! But why are the black splotches nudes?

And Winds is a dirty old lady?

Great. I was think of getting one with the exact same paint job, and now you've spoiled that. What if we showed up at the same shooting range carrying the exact same rifle? I'd just die. Fine. And the pink would go so well with my boots. Thanks a lot.


Seriously, beautiful rifle, keep enjoying it.
