Does anyone know of a lever action rifle chambered in .40 S&W?
Never heard of one. Lever actions are usually chambered for rimmed cartridges, like .44, .357, etc. .40 S&W is more likely to be found in a semi-auto.
would love one in 10mm.
Why not a semi-auto?
Below is a post from a thread I started on Calguns.net on the same subject. There is a Ruger (PC4) and Hi Point that comes in the .40 I think, but not legal in CA.
I am (Debbie)the Director of Operations at E.M.F. (Early & Modern Firearms) Company, Inc.
Thank you for your interest in the new J R Carbine, proudly distributed by EMF. It is manufactured by Just Right Carbines, LLC in New York. The 9mm is now in production! Unfortunately, the initial production guns will not be legal for sale in California; however, the folks at Just Right Carbines, LLC are working on a design that we will be able to submit for approval. We will keep you posted on the progress. In the meantime, if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns just let us know...we love talking it!
The pc4 is a semi-auto rifle. I can't find a lever action in .40.
Sorry DrDriller, guess I was misinformed on the PC4 and the Hi Point, they are both carbines that use mags. I have a pm to that Debbie at EMF for an ETA on their levers and other arms---will post what I find out. I'm looking for one too. Sorry about the mis-info.
I have never heard of, or seen a 40S&W lever action rifle.
It's probably the same reason there are no lever action 45ACP or 9mm Parabellum ones either - the action is designed around rimmed cases.
If you need to throw a 40 cal. bullet - get a 38/40 Winchester in a Winchester model 92 (or 92 clone), a great rifle since 1892!
why would you want a .40 or 10mm when you can have 10mm mag
i'm waiting for glock to do that one.
there you go!
I know for a fact the Ruger pistol caliber carbines were/are legal in CA. My local shop has one in 9mm.
OP- Lever actions were made for rimmed cartridges, period. Get one in .45 colt, close enough to a .40.
A 9mm and/or .40 in a lever action would be cool. The capacity would be higher than that of rimmed rounds.

Thanks for the heads up on that Cole, I was told otherwise so I'll certainly look into that.
I want a .40 lever instead of 357 or 45, because I have a lot of .40 ammo, and shoot .40 Glocks. I consolidated all my firearms to the .40 in handgun, .223 in rifle, and 12 gauge in shotgun. I hated having a huge variety of ammo to account for.
If I could shoot my handgun round in a rifle, that would be awesome.
I've never heard of a .40 levergun, rimless calibers (.45acp, .40 S&W for example) don't lend themselves to the action in leverguns. There is a reasonable selection of .40 semi auto carbines available.
You might talk to the the guys at Paco Kelly's levergun forum also.
