Pondering here...   going through pro's con's, etc in my head.  Interested in others thoughts.

Interested in a lever action gun.  Reason is simply for the nostalgia and uniqueness of it.

No intended purpose.  I can fire powder burners or airguns at my place with no issue.  Likely targets will be plinking and spinners out to 25 yards.

Henry .22 lever action... lower initial cost.  I have plenty of .22 ammo. For my intended purpose, dont need the power of a .22

Walther CO2 gun... higher initial cost.  Cheaper ammo, but the added cost of CO2.   

What concerns me with CO2 is I've yet to have a CO2 gun that hasnt ended up leaking on me.  Granted, I dont do much CO2 and I've little experience with resealing them.  PCP, I'm fine... CO2...not so much.

Would seem for my intended purposes, I should look for a used Walther and be done with it.  Curious on others thoughts on the Walther and what you ended up doing with it.  I see them for sale periodically, but I've never jumped on one and now that I'm looking, I cant find any in search for historical pricing awareness. 

 

All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand.

the old problem of want over need, I have also looked that Walther and said wouldn't that be neat to own but never pulled the trigger to buy one

I don't think they are a very hot seller, there's to much stuff that you can get for the money or less but then again it a odd bird that would good in my house as maybe yours

the old ones took two 12gram and the new one take the 88 gram or an double 12 gram cylinder or you can make your own single 12 gram units like I did for my Hammerli  850's

there's an older gold one on GB right now and the best new price was on Ebay at Ecop

I'm really no help at all but would I buy a new one maybe not, if I found some change under the cushions that might help but a nice used one in great shape sure, it isn't a ham sandwich you can always sell it

but it is a buy to try sort of world, at least that's my excuse

take care

If all you're looking for is the feel of a lever action, try to find a Hahn Super Repeater.  I know, I know, it's "just a BB gun,"  but it sure puts a smile on my face.  Also, it happens to be one of the hardest hitting and most accurate BB guns I've ever owned.  I usually see them at airgun shows in good working order for around $75-80.

Thanks for the replies... I do have a Sumatra Carbine and a Career Ultra, which are lever actions, but the Walther/Henry has always caught my eye. 

Will continue to ponder.  Have been for a long while on this one and am in no hurry on it...haha

Had the lever action urge some time back.  Decided to post a "want to buy" ad for a Crosman 99 rather than the Walther, even if I needed to spend the $ to reseal it.

All things considered, it was the right choice for me.

 

 

For you, I don't know.  Lot of people love the Walther....seems like some have had problems....I'm not going to vote one way or other, as I've only have a few shots as trigger time with the Walther.

Interesting. I like the looks of the 99 and I know I've seen them at shows before.  May be an option.  Emailed the one fellow to see what he may have.  Still bouncing back and forth between air/powder at this point.

I didn't try to scope the 99...although it is possible...just ran it as it was, open sights.  There is some interest in old-school crosmans as collectibles, so I'd Likely avoid ones that have been "refinished", and look for one that is in good internal mechanical shape rather than all varnished and spray painted.
