A lever gun in
9mm
10mm
Or .45ACP
Would be neat....wonder if there would be a market for such...?

Great minds think alike, stumbled upon this thread and that was my first immediate thought.
Lever gun in .45 ACP would be pretty sweet, could probably fit 15 or more in those tube magazines, maybe even more in .45 GAP.
10mm would be pretty tempting too or 9x23 winchester.

...maybe a lever version of Marlin's old Camp Carbine?
 
Yeah, its made in Japan, but I never heard anyone cuss any of those guns, either.
Since this is a dream thread, your comment has me thinkin'...

How about a samurai sword meets lever action gun?

Receiver and lever milled from folded steel, bluing so dark it'll make Dahmer's soul jealous, and grip textures modeled after pristine samegawa. Bronze for all the small parts and an inlaid menuki as well...

I'd buy one.

That's not a gun, or a sword, that a work of art!
There was a pirate pistol that had a cutlass blade attached to it, way back when, so your idea does have merit....at least historically....

A Winchester 1895 in .30-06 with a bayonet would be a formidable weapon...

I'm happy with the .30-40.
Highly capable round and the '95 was strong enough to handle the modern loading for that round.
Nothing in NA is beyond its reach.
The .30-40 and the .303 Savage....two sadly underestimated rounds that should still have guns chambered for them.
