    Looking for a 357 magnum lever action for a suppressor host. Unfortunately, I am limited to either a Marlin 336 or 1894 because the barrel extends further out than the mag tube.

    What kind of suppressor are you going to use?

    Don't forget about .45 Colt and .44 mag./spl. calibers. Much more foot pounds of energy and still subsonic (less than 1000 fps.+/-). I think the lever action would be a great suppressor host. What about the Rossi "pistol" carbine? Can't think of the name of it right now. You could always shorten the mag tube a little if necessary.

    Ahhh.......... Found the link! Rossi USA

    I'm not real crazy about the giant loop but something a little larger than standard would be great.

    45 osprey


    I'd prefer to stay with a 357 because I can run 38 special, which is a really cheap round to shoot. Also, I would prefer to stay with a .357/.38 so I can get a revolver later on in .357.

    The problem is that I can't find anything to begin with. For some reason, a .357 lever action is like finding a needle in a haystack right now.

    I understand, but I reload so the cost is all about the same.

    Have you been to the Marlin Owners Forum? There are beautiful guns all over that site.

    I got a Rossi in the spring. I had to order it. Only took a week to come in.
    Mine has a normal lever loop. Shoots .38s very well.
