      Compact, easy to cycle. Decent accuracy. Trigger pull can be terrible on new guns. Limited use of spitzer bullets.

        Lever acton in a unexperienced hands can be dangerous. Whenever there is an exterior hammer there is a chance of misfire. Another minus of lever action is if you are wearing gloves it can be really hard to work the lever, in a fast manner. Although, I saw last weekend that Henry had a special lever action that compesates for a gloved hand, but most people don't hunt with 1200.00 lever action.
