I'm looking for a 44 mag lever action rifle that isn't a rossi or a large loop. Its not really bullseye related but I can't find one anywhere for a decent price. Text at 361-208-5979

I did a quick search on gun broker and seeing what people are asking for them... I'd just go with a Rossi. Any particular reason why you don't want a Rossi?

I haven't heard good things about rossi. But also I trust bullseye people more then random guns on gunbroker.

It says they aren't taking orders right now and then the other one just says ask my own dealer.

I've had a few from there but I was wanting to see if anybody here had one they were willing to part with because I know how well competitive shooters take care of their guns!

I think this is accurate info
There are three Marlin eras.
Original company - the best guns, fondly called "JM" guns.  
Marlin owned by Remington - less desirable guns
Recently Marlin acquired by Ruger - be patient, guns may be real good again

I have a 1894-44 from the original company.  I like is so much I had to buy a Ruger 44 revolver to go with it.

I have a Rossi 92SRC in 44mag.  It’s ok.  It’s not a bench gun, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Ruger recently purchased Marlin. Give them a while to straighten out the quality issues that Marlin has had. At that point, I think Marlin would be a good choice.

I would love a Henry! I've gotten to shoot those before and they were great! I'm just not a fan of the gold. I would want the blued which was discontinued.

If I have a gun I want it to be accurate. I would rather spend the extra money to get a more accurate gun. I want to hunt with it out to even a couple hundred yards.

I don’t think the round is up to it.  It has the energy, but the trajectory becomes rather steep.

 For a lever gun at 200y you should consider at least a 30-30, which I think is still weak for 200y depending on the game hunted. Plus the accuracy of a lever gun at 200 is suspect compared to a good bolt gun in say 308.  The 308 is a very versatile cartridge close in to 200y

Found an article on 5 top .44 Magnum rifles online.  Looks like choices are limited, with selections from the following makers:

  • Marlin;
  • Henry;
  • Winchester, and;
  • Ruger.

Online listings for rifles are not cheap - expect to spend a minimum of $600 for anything that isn't a Rossi..

200 would be for hogs and 100 and closer would be for deer.

I'm sort of in the same market except in 357 Magnum so will be paying attention to what develops here.  I didn't know Marlin was picked up by Ruger.  That's promising.

I used my Marlin 44 for (lead only) silhouette matches. At 200 yds the trajectory is a rainbow. I'm not convinced that the gun is capable of ramping the load right up to get a flatter one. Personally I'd have a limit of 150 yds. YMMV.

Having said that - it's a great little gun. I bought it for Texas hog hunting.

I think it's almost un-American to at least not want a lever action rifle.

A friend of mine stumbled across a .44 barrel and lifter* for a 94 Winchester. He swapped it onto a pre-war carbine he had, and it all fit up perfectly. He (and I) shot it a little, and he swapped the 30-30 barrel back on. Not fun in a carbine like that.

If you really want a 200 yd hog gun, a M-71 (.348) would be a great choice ;-)

* Might have been another part or 3 involved. Looong time ago ...
