    I'm really wanting to do a suppressed lever gun too.

    I fail to understand why more gun companies aren't responding to the surge in suppressor ownership and offering more (or even SOME) models with factory threaded barrels.

    Ive wanted to thread a mares leg in 357 and attach a pistol brace for a while now. I dont even have a can for that cal yet so it would be quite an investment that I just cant do right now. Still want to though.

    It seems lever-actions are falling out of favor with the younger crowd, but they do have advantages. For one, they can cycle virtually anything. For instance, owning a lever-action .22 makes a lot of sense. 22s are essentially a multi-purpose caliber so having one rifle that can shoot shorts, quiets, etc., comes in real handy.

    The other advantage I can readily think of is as a learner. Lever-actions are safer than semi-autos & a more natural/efficient movement than cycling bolt-actions so a beginner can better concentrate on fundamentals.

    The standard Henry .22 is a perfect rifle for a kid to learn on, IMO.
