What does he like about the lever? The looks or the handling. If he wants the western looks you are not going to get it in a .243. If recoil is a problem have him consider a lever gun in 357 magnum or .44 mag. If he needs the reach of a .243 then I think he would be better served with a bolt gun to have the accuracy to go with it.
