    It would be different, but I would not buy one modified as such.
    (If there is a possibility of your trying to sell it later)

    I think its a really terrible idea. Even the zombies won't take you seriously if you show up with something like that. :p

    If you want a bayonet and/or maybe a suppressor, get a modern design rifle and go that route.

    Ever heard of form following function?

    That's why modern designs look like they do.

    Kinda like firearm Darwinism.

    Try operating a lever action rifle while prone, then come back and we'll talk.

    Thomas Edison, John Browning, and Sam Colt all had "dumb" ideas at times.

    Don't give up so easily.

    If you want a Tactical lever action then why not do it?

    Who cares what a bunch of faceless nameless guys on the interwebz want...

    If you want a quad railed suppressed 30-30 with a black stock and ACOG then friggin do it. Not my cup of tea but hey it is your gun do what you want with it. Guess what there are millions of lever actions out there. Make yours your own.

    I am really kind of turned off by all the replys in this thread.

    Why does a person have to have an AR or other tactical looking semi-auto to have a can or a bayonet on it?

    I think I have everyone a big fat thumbs down (Just to let you know)....

    If someone wants opinions, they'll definitely get them here. Tango, if you disagree, that's your opinion. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
