I am looking into purchasing a lever action .22 rifle for my kid. I have shot the browning BLR and the Henry. Also, I have a marlin and winchester lever actions that chamber larger rounds. I know they all are good guns and well built for th most part. I think I will go with the browning, but would like to hear any thoughts that you may have or expirences. I would like this as a planking gun that will last a lifetime.

Thanks for all the info. I figured it would come down to personal prefernce. Interesting how many like the henry. I don't want to offend anyone and maybe it was just the model I shot, but it seemed to not be built as well as the others I looked at. (It was most likely their bottom line model). I felt as if the action/metal would scratch and some parts were not as strudy. Just my intial feeling. I will give them another look however.
