It seems you enablers have me thinking old school instead of new school recently and now I'm thinking about lever guns.

I've got a Marlin 39 and Winchester 94/22 in 22WMR, but I really want a lever gun similar to a Henry Golden Boy, but without the wood forend...basically a 22LR replica of a Henry 1860.

Since it seems Henry doesn't offer what I'm looking for and my Google-Fu isn't working, I thought I'd ask here.

What lever gun do you recommend for an 1860 replica, an 1897, or maybe even an 1873 replica?

Also, if none exist, is a Henry worth looking at?

What about a Browning?
