Default Are there any 9mm Lever action rifles?

Would love to get a lever action carbine or something - but don't want another caliber around the place - are there any in 9mm out there?

Why not .22LR?

In my years, I can not remember a lever gun.......Marlin did build some neat semi auto carbines for a while. They built them in both 9mm and 45. If you "had" to have a lever gun It wouldn't be too tough to modify a 357 lever gun. The biggest problem would be designing an extractor that would work with the rimless parabellum case. It would be an interesting project.

What you should do is get a .357 magnum lever action and a nice wheelgun to match

Most .357 lever actions also handle .38 spl. Very versatile if you are looking for pistol caliber power in a rifle.

Well a conversion project is beyond my capabilities and I already have a .22LR rifle (ruger 10/22 of course) but in the absence of a 9mm lever then I guess a .22 version would be the best step. oh well.

Choosing a lever action caliber is a tough choice. Thats why I bought a 30-30, 45 Colt, and a .357. I guess I liked the 30-30 more because then I bought another one. The moral is, this probably wont be your only lever action so get whatever makes you happy.

If you want to stick with 9mm, get a Marlin Camp 9? They're great little rifles...

i know couple who have acomprehensive collection of model 94 rifles. i handled one that was worth $10K alone, and they are beautiful firearms.

they stated that once i get into lever action rifles there's no turning back. that's why i'm trying to avoid purchasing my first one. however, when the right price comes around for a 30-30, i will definitely pick one up.

No 9mm leavers they are not rimmed so it would be hard to make them feed.

Non-rimed cartridges feed fine, better than rimmed ones. That is one of the reasons why Remington built there line of ammo (30 Remington is identical to a 30-30 but rimless) for the early tube fed pumps and autos. Winchester set the standard for levers and stayed with the rimmed amo. The biggest issue with tube fed rifles was they needed to have round nose bullets to prevent (nose to primmer) ignition in the magazine tubes. There were a lot of Rimless 35 Remington and 444 Marlins built through the years and they fed fine.

From the cover art of this DVD (Posse, 1993) it looks like these cowboys might have had 9mm lever actions.



Or are those .38 Super?

They're not kidding. I bought three of them in one day Every time I see a nice old Winchester on here I get a sudden urge to just buy it. Theres something to be said about old school workmanship. Really nothing like blued steel and a wooden stock. It's a nice thing to have to compliment AR15s and the likes. Just depends on whether you want to pretend to be Rambo or John Wayne.

Well if you need to have manual feeding and a lever is
too much of a complication to convert, why not think
in terms of a pump action? convert a .410? Not sure
you'll come out ahead, but interesing!

It was ten years ago and I didn't pay much attention but I shot a 9mm lever gun someone brought to a range match one time. Unhelpful, but I do think they exist.

Does it HAVE to be a lever action? Lever action rifles tend to be chambered for revolver calibers, I have yet to personally see a lever action chambered in 9mm, .45acp or fo-tay. Plenty of lever actions chambered in .357/.38, .44mag/.44spl and .45LC.

I suppose lever action 9mm rifles do exist, but they're likely extremely rare and therefore difficult to obtain and probably expensive. If you're looking for a companion gun to a 9mm autopistol you already have, why not look into a Hi-point carbine or a Ruger camp carbine.

The 30 Remington and 35 Remington are both rimless and I'd bet there are many others, so using a rimless case is not an issue. What would be an issue, I think, are all those loaded 9mm cartridges in the tube with their primers resting on top of the nice pointy bullets of the case below them. I know there are JHPs and FPs that avoid the problem, but alot of folks but the FMJ stuff, I think that would cause a problem.

Since the 9mm locates off the rim, how are you going to get enough crimp on the bullet to keep it from deep seating in the magazine tube?

Indeed, I always tell people that the 9mm and even the 10mm is for sissies - that's why I have an 11mm! (.45)

When I first saw your screen name I thought you might already have a lever action around, but 1892 could also mean one has a Lebel, a Colt DA, or is simply a fan of any of the above.

Interesting idea, and in some strange way I just began to look at the obverse, and now find myself wanting a Magnum Research BFR 30-30 revolver to complement my Marlin 30-30. That might be an expensive & tough find, and It's all your fault!

I guess that could be an issue, I don't know if a heavy taper crimp - or if the usual taper crimp used in factory ammo - is enough in a tube mag. But if you go with a roll crimp it might not headspace properly or fire dependably. Probably too many problems to overcome using a tube magazine, but a box or rotary magazine like the Savage 99 or Ruger 96 would work fine.

Default 9mm lever?

I appreciate and join with the request for a good lever gun chambered in 9mm. The suggestions are all excellent, but for a rifle that would give me pleasure while walking in the woods, it would would be a 9mm lever. Why?

It would be a wonderful plinker, chambered in a cartridge I keep in large quantity. I buy 9mm in bulk because (a) you can never have too much and (b) it is extremely cost effective. For instance, a look at an online ammunition retailer, yields the following:

Federal 22 LR - 1,000 Rounds of 40 Grain LRN (American Eagle) $199.80 20¢ per round

Federal 9mm Luger Ammo - 1,000 Rounds of 115 Grain FMJ $244.00 24.4¢ per round

Federal 38 Special Ammo - 1,000 Rounds of 158 gr LSWC $389.95 39¢ per round

Federal 357 Mag Ammo - 1,000 Rounds 158 gr JSP $499.00 49.9¢ per round

Federal 45 ACP - 1,000 Rounds 230 gr FMJ (American Eagle) $380.00 38¢ per round

So if I am out to enjoy a walk in the woods and shoot a couple of hundred rounds, I'd prefer it to cost me $49.00 (for 9mm) rather than $99.80 (for 357 mag).

Also, it appears to me that the market for M-1s in 9mm is growing. I'd expect the market for a lever action to do likewise.

The 357 magnum is really impressive out of a 16 barrel, doubles it's power from a revolver to a rifle which is one of the few cartridge can do that.

Check it out at bullet by the inch: http://www.ballisticsbytheinch.com/357mag.html

No kidding. I have 11 94's. All different in their own way. That's the entry drug. Then you discover 73's (classic), 66's (soo pretty), 86's (Buffalo!), and (oh so sweet, JMB's finest IMHO) 92's.

And then check out a well-tuned more modern BLR and see what smoooooth is.

It's a sickness.

Since DBCee decided to use his one post to take a shovel to the idea after we couldn't find anything in the last five years, here you go.

Some Latin American model 92s in 9mm exist.

And the brits made this thing.

Not a lever action, But the Ruger PC9 is an awesome 9mm carbine modeled after the M1 Carbine.

Awww...you got me all excited there. The 9×23mm Largo is not exactly what I am stocked up on.

I guess I will keep looking for that Marlin Camp 9 since the Ruger PC9 is a unicorn...
