    suppression of any caliber maintains bullet energy, reduces recoil and often times (in my other rifles) improves accuracy. But that's a whole different discussion and not what I asked.

    Yes, definitely. It's your rifle and threading it does not hamper its function whatsoever.

    I see opinions are slit, however, people are not explaining why they feel what they do unless it's a yes.

    In my humble opinion i just don't see the connection of a suppressor and a lever gun period,,,,add in if its a JM Marlin all i think you do is devalue the gun and make it a white elephant.Perhaps I'm a purist but i really can't see the connection with lever guns and surprisers,,,,,but like others have said,,,its your gun do what you want with it.

    No, because JM rifles are no longer in production and coveted by Marlin officionado's. I would not doubt that threading a JM barrel would reduce it's value. Maybe not substantially reduce the value now, but substantially in the future.

    I'm planning to thread mine. There aren't any more of them, but they made plenty. I'd say to be sure to pick someone well known for the job, having the local gunsmith do it would probably be fine but when you go to sell it you'll get a lower price if the gunsmith is unknown.

    BTW, what I really want is someone to mill a 3-lug onto the barrel, haven't found anyone willing yet.
