The lever action has a 24 inch barrel which I think would be really cool for the round to get maximum velocity and accuracy. The pump action might be more fun to shoot...
Barrel length vs velocity. Longer is not always better for velocity although with iron sights the longer sight radius will probably help accuracy. Bolt actions are considered more accurate than lever or pump actions.
