Good stuff.
I've had good luck with the 32WS. Have several and are all good shooters. The most accurate lever I own is a 32 rifle with 2/3 mag.

Those Stallions are quality stuff. Never had anything that nice. No gunbelts either.
On the other hand, my dad bought me my first BB gun when I was 3. He made a trap for me in the cellar and tought me to shoot. Few years later, he stitched me a holster for my CO2 pistol.
