Default 9mm lever gun

Pricey, but intriguing. If it feeds well and doesnít chain fire, hopefully other makers will try this at an affordable price point.

I'm wondering what it does that a .38/357 lever gun already doesn't do better.

Nothing. It wouldn't be nearly as versatile, but you can shoot cheap bulk ammo in it.

Cheaper ammo, lotsa fun. What does any 9mm carbine do well?

I'm keeping my Marlin 1894 .357 carbine (1979) that I purchased about 1992 for $175 bucks. I do have a couple of 9mm carbines (semi-auto) that work fine.

I think I might be more interested in a .40/10mm lever gun myself. But I'm all for making more guns to entice more gun buyers! It's all good.

Have the SASS (cowboy action shooting) rules changed? They didn't use to allow jacketed, or plated bullets. Also, the ammo had to be low-pressure & low velocity (less than 1,000 fps in handguns and less than 1,400 fps on rifles.

I always though a Win 94 or Marlin 1894 chambered in 45 acp would be fun to play with.........Magazine could hold 18-20 rounds.

I have used 45 Schofield/45 US in my Marlin Cowboy Special and both my regular Rossi 92s. They were both 10 rounds of 45 Colt and 14-15 rounds of the shorter 45s. 44 Russian doesn't work in 44 mag rifles and 38 S&W jams up a 357 Marlin real fast! (guess how I found out!)

Considering what conversions cost, I don't think that's a bad deal at all.
I am not 1873 knowledgable, but I suspect it'll be a helluva shooter.

I see it’s also threaded for a suppressor. I’m sorry. I like suppressors as much as the next guy - have several - but hanging one of those things off the end of an 1873 action is just wrong! I think I’ll pass on this one.

Ok, so 9mm is cheap and plentiful. So what?
If you're gonna spend $2000 for a rifle, you can afford proper ammo in a proper caliber.

If I'm going to buy a lever gun ... it will not be chambered for 9mm Luger ... Make one in say ... 41 Magnum , Now You Is Talking !

9mm Lever Action ... that's Radicchio !

I could go for one in 45ACP made by Marlin, as I strive to have a Marlin to match each S&W N frame I have…

I'm glad gun manufacturers don't read forums. They'd never produce anything new at all for fear they'd be universally shatupon by all the gun experts out here.

I wouldnít worry about a traditional fmj profile in a 9mm lever gun. That said, you could always go with a truncated cone profile (flat nosed) or hollow point bullets, thereís a lot of 9mm options with those profiles.

I own the only Camp 45 I ever saw for sale! It was in a LGS when they were first introduced. I've had several Camp 9 carbines. I didn't think much of them. However, dad used his for pest control to great effect! My brother got it after dad died, and got rid of it immediately, and he's a 9mm guy!

I have Marlin 357, 44, 32-20, lever guns, a Marlin 45 Camp Carbin, and an AR-9. They match handguns in the same calibers. In the mid-70s, I was a Deputy US Marshal and read some of the reports from the 1880s. Many of those officers carried a 44-40 revolver and lever gun. Many of the deputies of my time carried a 357 revolver so I got a 357 lever gun and found a great combo. That started my interest in these combos.

I love lever action Marlin's and Winchester's. Other than the 22's the smallest caliber I have is 45 Colt. The others are in rifle calibers and rim fire. 22's for fun, small game and varmint or a day full of cheap fun. The rifle calibers for hunting, Cowboy Action (I used to compete in S.A.S.S.) and we had long range rifle matches sometimes.

In a Marlin 1894 the 45 Colt cartridge can be loaded up pretty stout - to be right up there with a 44 magnum. After all, they use the same exact rifle for the 44 Mag. I agree that the lowest center fire caliber I would ever buy in a lever gun would be 38/357. The reason I bought a 45 Colt was so I could use the same ammo as in my two SAA revolvers. I did not load max loads for Cowboy Action competitions. I could NEVER buy one in 9MM. That is downright sacrilegious! LOL

I love my lever action rifles, my favorite kind of rifle but Iíll stick with my Colt 9mm Carbines (6450 & 6951) if I wanna shoot 9mm out of a long gun.

Iíd like to see a reasonably priced bolt action .38/.357. Ruger has/had the 77/357 but prices are in nosebleed vicinity.

Has anyone actually used .38 in a .357 lever gun with success? I know of 2 people that can’t get them to run right in their Henry lever guns.

I run .38 in a Henry big boy. Haven't had any issues, and it holds one extra round. It's is very mild, and so quiet it sounds suppressed

Iíve got a Marlin, a Winchester and a Rossi lever in .38/357. The Winchester is unfired, but the Marlin and Rossi shoot great. I had one instance f the Rossi jamming on feeding a .38spcl, but I got it cleared and it never happened again. I mostly shoot .38 in these guns, and thatís supposed to be where the troubles happen, not with .357Ö

Have had three Marlin 1894C carbines, 1982 bought new and the two others bought well used. After a lot of rounds the extended thumb of the lever rubs a groove in the bottom of the elevator and the 38's no longer feed. Watch you minimum OAL! Mine fed RN, SWC, and RNFP fine.

Have had a Stainless Rossi 92 since the late 90's (bought used) [pre bolt safety] feeds everything 38 except WCs. That became part of a 4-gun set for Cowboy Action. Runs like a dream.

357s are easy to feed in SWC or any type of RN. If those give you trouble, there is something seriously wrong.

My Henry 357 lever runs nicely. I picked up a new 44 Ruger, and i'm chasing accuracy. Disappointing groups with AA9, have h110, imr4227, lil'gun to try with 240 gr xtp's

I like it. It would be a nice match for my 9mm Stoeger/Uberti single action.

Ever since: (1) 9mm became relatively cheap again, and (2) my epiphany that I have never enjoyed reloading during the 50 years I trudged away at it, I have come to appreciate non-traditional 9mm guns. A 9mm lever gun is no more sacriligeous than a .357 or .44 magnum lever rifle (or .45 Colt if you think about it).

As the OP says, I hope it paves the way for other, less expensive options.

First thing I would check is the actual bore diameter along with the actual bullet diameter! Not just what boxes say.

universally shatupon = marketing research & feedback

My Winchester/Miroku 1873 in .357 doesnít feed 38 Special very well.

If you're gonna spend $2000 for a rifle, you can afford proper ammo in a proper caliber.
Well said.

If this were $1K or preferably well below, it could be a viable plonker that uses inexpensive (relatively speaking) 9mm ammo.

But at $2K? Get real.

My old Rossi 92 runs fine with either 357 or 38 Spl. I can even mix them randomly in the magazine.

I'll stick with the classic .30-30 Winchester in a Glenfield/Marlin 30GT. Bought for $195 in the late 90's and still a tack driver. Who needs 9x19 in a lever gun?
