The BL-22 Grade II has distinctive cut checkering and scroll engraving on the receiver and is designed in the tradition of the American West - right down to the barrel bands, exposed hammer and tubular magazine. It has an unusually short 33 lever throw that you'll find very useful. It makes working the action exceptionally fast for adults and much easier for young shooters. You won't find this feature on any other lever action. It enables you to cock the hammer and chamber a fresh round with a mere flick of the wrist. And you can do this while keeping the BL-22 shouldered and on target. This is a feature that works so well you simply must experience it before you consider any other lever action 22. Because the trigger disconnects and travels with the lever, there's no chance of pinching fingers - fat dad fingers or little daughter fingers.
