Need help with an Ithaca .22LR lever action

So, a while back my grandpa gave me a .22LR chambered ithaca lever action. It has a tubular magazine, it also says made in west Germany on the side. I will try to upload some pictures later, but I'd really just want to know some more info on it like value and if I can get it fixed n (the firing pin have a few soft hits where it doesn't fire). Thanks in advance.

IIRC, the Ithaca was made by Erma of West Germany. I think the current Henry lever action is a similar design.

FWIW, The Ithaca Model 49 is a Zamak-receiver, Martini-type single shot rifle.

While Ithaca made their own Model 49R (repeater) for awhile, the only Ithaca levergun made in Germany (by Erma & branded for Ithaca) was the Ithaca Model 72.

The Model 72, as posted above, is virtually identical to the current Henry H001 Standard, but IDK if parts are interchangeable.

Perhaps contacting Anthony Imperato @ Henry, with your need for a FP, can resolve your issue.

Mr. Imperato (the Henry Prexy) can be reached directly via email: [email protected]

While Numrich lists the Model 72 firing pin, it's currently posted as "Sold Out".
