    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.

    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.

    Nice rifle.

    I like mine, it's not as fancy,

    but it brings a Western flavor to shooting

    22LR.

    No, it didn't. Balota found someone to custom paint it for me. I almost fainted when I saw it.

    Holy crap, you have .22 ammo! It does exist. ;)

    Seriously though, cool rifle.
    I would like to know more about the paint job. I think something in that style would be cool for the wife's AR.

    You'll have to PM Balota. He lives in Oklahoma and had it done somewhere out there.

    Thanks, everybody, for all the "Congratulations".

    Waiting for the post or waiting for the phone call asking if I can come up and have you fix it for me? :cool:

    I guess you don't remember how stubborn I was when I had that Mark II apart. I just had to get it back together myself. Even if it took a month to do it.

    Really cool! And just think, that action will get even more smooth over time. Have a blast with that new rifle.:)

    If that action gets any smoother, it will be cocking itself. :D

    Balota took one. He is going to send it to me and I will decide whether it gets posted. My rule is........no pictures of me on the forum. Not even any of my on FB. Nope, not going to happen. Though I think Balota took a picture of me firing the Henry but all you'll see is the back of my head. You have to meet me to see what I look like. :cool:
