    Just kidding. I'm with the 9mm lever action group.
    Has there ever been a lever action, that had a tube mag that didn't use rimmed cartages?

    I only ever seen levers with box mags that used non rimmed cartages. AKA Browning BLR.

    How about a level-action machine gun?

    Balderdash. ;-P “We put a man on the moon 50 years ago...” and other stuff my dad says.



    How about this:






    All of the above exaggerated for illustration purposes.

    The “tube” magazine is less tube and more oblong to control the cartridge’s side to side motion, while allowing a little play up and down.

    The magazine would have either have perfectly placed bumps, or crimps pressed into it to force the cartridges to be offset in the same way a rimmed cartridge sits offset in the tube. The offset only needs to be a millimeter or so to get the point off the center of the primer. The plunger would just have cut outs to clear the bumps.





    And Henry... I know you’re listening... if you use this design you gotta send me one of the rifles out of the first batch! :-D ;-)

    I think your right on that one. Even if a tube detonation is highly unlikely but if it did happen that would be a nightmare for Henry.
    Even if they did produce one it's likely the american market would eat them up and leave very little for us like usual.
    Would be nice to see them step up production of the popular rifles they already manufacture so there is more to go around for everyone and maybe lower the price point a little.
    Having maybe an affordable line of levers and single shots would make more sense than trying to re engineer their rifles to shoot a short, rimless auto pistol bullet. Especially coming in a time where money will be a lot tighter for many people.
    Just my opinion.

    9mm lever gun does not have to be tube mag.

    I would appreciate if it could accept Glock mags.

    While I can appreciate the convenience, I can’t appreciate the ugly.

    Nice wooden lever with half of a naked black glock mag dangling out of it...
