Cleaned up and polished--ready to go. Like other new levers are sometimes prone to do, the lever tends to lock pretty hard and takes a bit to unlock--hopefully that will smooth off with some use--so I'm going to spend some time watching a movie while pretending I'm riding in to the rescue with John Wayne.

Two big pluses I noticed right off the bat--the longer sight radius between the rear and front irons due to the 22" I can actually see with my worn out old half-blind eyes and hopefully use--my other levers with shorter barrels I can't see. The trigger breaks crisply and consistently right at 4 lbs--perfect for hunting IMO.
I screw things up--so you don't have to.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
