if he had a Win model 62, could have probably hit it 4 times

My cousin still has one, when we would shoot together as kids, it would keep up with my 10/22 in aimed fire, faster than a lever or bolt by a mile. Always wanted one, but now they are collectible and expensive, the Rossi 62 is cheaper, but not as desireable. That Henry looks cool, but almost guaranteed to have a disconnector, so it's neutered for slam firing out of the box.

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.

He had a Winchester Model 1890, (now mine) does that count?

This is a pic of the 4 Winchesters I own with the 1890 (made in 1913) on the bottom.

Technically I see your point. My gunsmith did a lever action job on my 39A. Smooth as butter. I can cycle rounds with my pinky and ring finger without breaking a stance. The whole cycle feels very natural with quick return to grip and aim point.
