Pumps are easier to shoot fast, being you don't break your grip or stance, some pump older models lacking a disconnect can be "slam fired" if you hold the trigger down like the original Colt Lightning or 1897s. Levers are fun too, no real bad way to go IMO. In either, I might consider 22LR instead of mag, the tube mag and manual action are friggin awesome with shorts, CB caps or colibris, can't do that with magnum chambering

Can lever actions run .22lr, .22s & .22l like many pump actions can?

If you can slam fire the pump, that'd be the one to get.

I'm 99% sure that my Marlin 39a can do that.

This is the pump:

I have a frontier model in .17HMR. Great shooter and never had an issue with it if that helps.

My Dad told me that when he got his first Marlin 39A, he got to a point where he could toss a tin can in the air and hit it 3 times on the way down. He was never one to exaggerate. To me, that's pretty danged fast.

Have not shot either, but it seems to me the pump would offer a better rate of fire since you don't have to break your grip.

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...
I've been on a 22 WMR mini binge this year (semi, levers, bolt). I was also shopping for rimfire pumps and got a couple of old Remingtons that can run 22 S/L/LR cartridges. I was considering the Henry pump in 22 WMR, but it's had too many problems in the last few years (lots of reports in different forums) that I wouldn't feel comfortable ordering one. Otherwise the price was very appealing. There are some great priced 22 WMR bolt action rifles available right now that I'm looking at (and can send you a link or two if interested).

I'd probably save for an old Winchester or Browning if still shopping for a 22 WMR pump. If I wanted a quality 22 WMR lever at a decent price, I'd get the Henry.
