of course it's a pre-safety to piss off all the marlin purists. Coastal Subgun can I've had lying around since I sold my sten back 2008. TROS thread adaptor and the thing is hollywood quiet with PMC 123gr non plus p 38spl fmj. It's just ridiculous how quiet it is. I will of course be working up my own subsonic load with polymer coated 158s and I need to get a taller front sight to work better with the vintage redfield receiver sight. It's just tall enough to sit at the top radius of the can so it's usable but a taller front sight will fix that. I apologize for the poor photography, will update with better pics later once picnic table dries. Work done by Jojo's gun works in Southington, CT.

Once I get in to NFA, a suppressed lever gun will be on my list.  That thing is sweet.

I have two MGs, SBRs, multiple cans, but this is one item that is high on my "to have" list. Nicely done.

Nice. Got any pics of it without the can on?

At a local 3 gun match this past weekend, one guy had a suppressed rifle, pistol and shotgun. The shotgun was a disappointment; it was pretty loud, but that was a trade-off for weight. The suppressor was in parts and could be assembled in at least 2 different lengths. The rifle suppressor was very impressive; a 16” barreled AR that made less noise than the bullet impact on the steel target at 100 yds. The pistol was ok, but it nearly doubles the length with the suppressor.

With the size of your suppressor on the .357, it is easy to see that it could really be Hollywood quite.

Looks good OP.  I threaded my stainless 16" Rossi .357 for a form 1 can but when I get the stamp back I'm going to convert it to a SBR.  Definitely makes for some interesting conversations.

I've got the same exact setup but I eventually added a mini red dot to see over the suppressor.  I've been shooting 130 gr American Eagle .38s and most are going supersonic, the ones that stay sub are very quiet.  I'm going to try some 158's.

Just got my 1894 back. With handloaded 158gr bullets, it's stupid quiet. Even full house .357 rounds aren't that bad.

I need to do this with one of my 1894c's. If I'm adding a can, then I'll also add a scope or red dot optic.

I always wondered if those cheap 130’s went supersonic in a long barrel. Wonder where the sweet spot is with them.

What cans are you using with the 357s?

I use a Liberty Mystic X on mine. With .357s it makes for a fairly light and handy doe cull/freezer filler gun.

Where are you getting the barrel threaded?

I have sent several guns to Morgan at Class 3 and he does great work for a fair price.

I want one of these! As always I have lots of wants and not a lot of cash.

I recently got the itch for this setup.

Coincidentally, it has now led me down the path of researching reloading - which is just as exciting!

Don't know how long it will take me to find the right Marlin, but I'm going to practice reloading 9mm before I get to .347/38sp.

Reloading .38 is fun and easy.  Next you need to add bullet casting and powder coating your cast bullets for super cheap suppressed fun.

I know someone had already mentioned this, but this is seriously the next thing on my list. Been watching the distributors like a hawk!

Did the tube need to be shortened to allow room for the can?
Got a good pic with the can attached?

You can get right at 0.6 inches of threads on the barrel without moving the barrel band or the front sight on the current round barrel rossis.
You have to shorten the tube about 1/2 inch on the receiver end and drill/grind a new notch in it(the magazine) for the barrel band screw.
Mine is 44 and the muzzle OD is barely over 5/8 inch.  I did 5/8-24 threads and use a thin jam nut as a shoulder for the silencer.

FWIW, in my experience, nothing is easier to reload than .38 Special. If I had a suppressed .357 levergun, I'd load some kind of heavy powder coated lead bullet at around 950 FPS in .357 brass. (Some .357 leverguns have issues feeding the shorter .38 rounds. And in any event, using .357 brass will keep your chamber cleaner.)

44 is easier because it's bigger!  The current Rossis are 30 inch twist and stabilize a 300gr xtp at subsonic speeds no problem.

The biggest benefit to a 357 is that subsonic jacketed 38spl is very cheap to buy so you don't have to reload.

My dream is to have a 10.5" Ruger 77/357 and a 1894 CSBL .357 (both threaded to suppress) to pair with a SP101 and GP100.
