If my memory serves me correctly, recall Bert stating that Teddy Roosevelt’s M94 is the only M94 that letters with a Maxim silencer.

I have seen a few Factory threaded barrel Winchesters. Not just 94’s.

Here’s my 1906 set up by the  factory for a Maxim Silencer.

Chuck – I have also seen 92’s and 94’s (probably 5 total) which had threaded barrels for silencers. None of them which I have seen were early enough to letter so you just don’t know who did the threading job. Also, over the years I owned 2 Model 86’s which were threaded – one was a 45-70 and the other was a 33 – they were both high condition deluxe guns and the thread job was superb, including a knurled nut. However, neither of my 86’s had the work noted in the ledger so my assumption is that is was done by a skilled gunsmith after the guns left Winchester. For this reason, I no longer own either of the 86’s.I would love to see a museum letter noting factory barrel threading if anyone has one they would be willing to share.

Factory threaded barrels had interrupted threads.

I did some research and it appears this topic has been discussed in detail in a thread on this forum dated April of 2014 – sorry, I am old and just don’t have the memory I once did. It appears those of us that would like to see factory documentation for a Winchester threaded for a silencer will not get one, at least not for a lever action repeater. Lots of interesting information in the April 2014 thread – you can find it with a search.

I am going to interject with what I hope is a point of interest to all who are following this topic.

Winchester did not actually “thread” the barrel for a Maxim Silencer.  Instead, a special fitting was installed on the end of the barrel, and that fitting had the interrupted threads on it for attaching the suppressor.  The Maxim Silencer was designed to install with a simple 1/4-turn.

The attached pictures show the fitting installed on a Single Shot (low-wall) rifle.  In the view showing the end of the muzzle device fitting, you can see the area where the threads are interrupted.  Also, take note that Vince’s rifle has the identical fitting on the end of the barrel.
