Don’t need one, already have a few I’ve yet to shoot… and am not shooting the ones I have often enough

But… I just want to buy one because I hate what’s happening to this country and more guns are better

i may end up with a .44 mag. I only have one gun, a SW Model 29,in that caliber… and I don’t like having just one gun in a caliber

  • lever Henry?
  • Taurus revolver?
  • Single action?

Second choice would be a Marlin.

I'm leaning toward a single action revolver. I enjoy the other levers I have, two if which are Henrys, but really enjoy single action shooting these days. I can get cowboy load .44mag and/or .44spl and really enjoy the SA.

The search and research is a fun part of the acquisition journey.

The Ruger Vaquero is looking pretty appealing.

EAA imports the Bounty Hunter 4.5" that also looks promising.

This 5.5” Vaquero in .44mag would be a nice addition to the collection

not sure I’m willing to pay a grand for it, however

How much is the Kimber? 1k seems an awful lot for the Ruger. I know prices are up but jeeeeeze.

So you’re telling me that the NEF .223 heavy barrel single shot rifle I have is worth about $500.!!! It’s a very accurate rifle and it’s got a 6-24x50 scope on it but really?
For Sale:
NEF handi-rifle in .223 with a 6-24X50 scope and bipod. Less than 100 rounds put through it.
$500.00 firm.

I guess it's a matter of what trips your trigger. You mention rifle and handgun. I have an old Ruger 44 Carbine rifle and it's my only 44 Mag rifle. I also have my S&W Model 29-5. If I wanted another 44 Magnum gun I would likely lean towards one of the Ruger flavors if one came along at a good price point. Again it's whatever trips your trigger.

Based on the 3 options at the bottom, you can’t go wrong with the Henry. I have one in brass, it’s sweet.

I have a Taurus Model 44 with an 8-3/8” barrel. Trigger is heavy. Had to adjust the rear sight quite a bit right. It’s no Smith but it scratched the itch. Very mild in the recoil with the 8 ports in the barrel it keeps the muzzle well controlled. I changed the grips to Hogue Pau Ferros. This was after I polished it up.

Single action, if you get a 44 magnum, get a Ruger Super Blackhawk Bisley. It makes a world of difference in how the recoil feels. I have a 10.5” Buntline I converted to a Bisley. No more knuckle busting. Mine after I converted to a Bisley outfitted with Hogue walnut Cowboy panels.

My advice if you want the best shooting experience out of the box, go with the Super Blackhawk Bisley Hunter.

That Redhawk 44 magnum I just got is pretty sweet. That gun hasn’t really changed in 40 years.

My opinion is that the Redhawk 44 is far more aesthetically pleasing that the goofy protruding frame on the Super Redhawk.
