That's a beaut, I'd love to have one like it. I'm torn between 38-55, .444, and 45-70 though. Already have a 32-40 so maybe I need the full set? lol

After ordering I was thinking, what did I just do. 26 inch heavy gun. It is nothing what I expected. The entire gun appears thinning down. I can hold it out with one hand. About seven lbs. It has a very good feel to it. I passed on a 38-55 at Epps. Just didn't seem to have much one could do with it, even reloading. Ammo was also crazy expensive. I do have a older 444 in mint condition.

Compared to the 32-40 the 38-55 has tons of loading options. Hell, you can even find brass
Any interest in trading the .444 for a custom 6.5x55 built on a mauser 98 action? It's not a $500 mauser, it's an $800 gun.

I have had many want the 444 that I have, but its staying. According to ballistics the 38-55 did not make sense when reloading for a 44, it was tempting but I passed.
