    I always prefer lever actions with box magazines like the BLR or the Winchester 88. Slap something like that together like that in a bunch of standard (and cool!) Calibres and I'd probably snag a few!

I just couldn't see a respectful company that makes nice lever actions, have a plastic Glock mag hanging from it. To me its sacrilegious.

    Also some places you cannot hunt small game with anything more than say .275 ( Believe in Ontario ) So having a 9mm would be illegal, and who would use one for bears?
    Now you acknowledge that more than just one person is asking for a mag fed gun. Reread it and understand that it is not for rifle "calibers". That gun already exists; the Henry Long Ranger. I'd like to think that Henry isn't asking us for advice on how to build a rifle that already exists. Nobody really cares about what the other guy's gun looks like. I love traditional levers. Traditional lever action guns and non traditional use formed my handle. Either a company is making new and innovative products or they're not. If they do, it shouldn't matter to Karen, because they are still making beautiful tube fed levers.

    Ontario's small game laws are immaterial to what sells. Some will want it as a plinker, some want a survival gun, and some will want it for when something is raising hell with the livestock. I'd use one in 9mm for coyotes, wolves, grouse, and just in case. Wouldn't be my first choice for bear, but I wouldn't be unarmed. A careful shot can take deer at close range.

    Well a lever isn't and cannot be a semi auto. Because it doesn't use the gas of the fired round to cycle the action, to chamber the next round. Word your are thinking of, is repeater.
    Not what was said at all. I'm sure the sanctimonious gun lesson isn't lost... Actually a semi auto in the pistol rounds is more likely not to use gas. Delayed blow back, or straight blow back is more common.

    A Ruger PC9 is an outstanding 100-yards-and-in pest gun to keep handy with a fully loaded mag ready to pop in when a coyote shows up in the barnyard. But a Henry lever-action detach-box-mag in 9mm would replace it in a heartbeat, for me. More than fast enough for a second or third shot if I need or want it, but not chambered and cocked until I need or want it.

    A pump would be just as nice, but as mentioned above, it might complicate the takedown feature and it would be a shame not to have that as well.

    Mostly a personal preference thing. For most purposes, I just don't care for a semi-auto. Mind you, I still prefer driving a manual transmission too, so...
    Very much the way I feel about it as well.

    I really hope they treat this thread like all the "I am in" contests sellers are using, pick a random post and make that gun. I would love to see Henry's idea of a double gun, shotgun or rifle. Maybe a 12 over rimfire.

    Someone might think it looks strange. But it looks so cool for me.

    Supporting Glock and AR mags will only add bonus for me.

    What about a carbine in various pistol calibers, in the style of a solid frame 1897. A pump action, slam firing carbine in 9mm, 40, 45 acp/lc, 357/38, and 44 mag/special. The solid frame 1897, especially in a pistol caliber would have a nice short receiver. Combined with a 16 inch barrel would make a nice handy package. Even better would be a trapper model with a 12 inch barrel.
    Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary.
