Now, make them in .357 and .22 with blued recievers and threaded barrels...
:lol: Sorry, I'm having visions of my Lever gun with a can on the end of the barrel! Might as well go full tilt boogie! Only in .30-30 Centerfire, but you can get one in .22 rimfire.

Ah yes.... the "Hi-Point Carbine" of lever action rifles. Proof positive that Bubba lives! :lol:
My eyes just cleared up after looking at the tactical lever Mossberg :nono: and then I found the ultimate violation to my eyes; A Marlin 1895 GBL 45-70 with a can! :lol:

That doesn’t bother me as much. I can’t seem to find it right now, but there exists a picture of Teddy Roosevelt, seated, and holding one of his favorite hunting rifles - a lever action - and there’s a suppressor mounted on it.

Those Henry’s are nice. My “Marlin Killer” is my new Mossberg 464 30-30 lever action. It was sitting next to a 336 in Academy’s gun rack.

I asked to see the 336, and as soon as I put it to my shoulder I could see the magazine tubed out of line with the the barrel. Deal killer right there. I have a 1949 made 336, and despite many “character” marks, it is is well made. This new 336 just looked a little crude by comparison to the older one, which I had examined before running down the street to Academy.

So I asked to see the Mossberg, and it looked great. Nice blueing, nice wood, no sharp edges, and I liked the no-pistol-grip stock. Looked up reviews on it there in the store and decided to take a chance.

I’ve been to the range 3 times with it, and put about 75 rounds of various brand 150 grain soft points through it. The loading and cycling was a little rough at first, but those have smoothed up nicely.

Love it, no regrets.
The only thing I don't like about the Mossberg levers is the plunger safety on the lever. I use a loose trigger hand when shooting a rifle...

So Henry finally made an 1866 Winchester. :lol:

It's a fine looking rifle. Hope they release them in .357, .44 or .45 Colt.

Initially when I “thought” I had to have all three non-trigger fingers in the loop it did feel a bit awkward. When I found things worked better with just the middle and ring fingers in the loop and to just keep the little finger out of the way things started feeling much smoother.

Since I don’t have significant trigger time with any other lever rifle that doesn’t have that type safety, I guess I just adapted to it without much trouble. The middle and ring fingers provide almost effortless depression of that plunger for me.

But I understand the reservation.
