so when you go with a .44 lever and revolver, you not only have MUCH heavier, bulkier guns, less rapidfire, no small game efficiency, no long range capability, no real concealment or 1 handed use, but you also can't carry nearly as many ro .44unds, and you can't suppress the revolver. If you suppress the lever action, you have to shorten the tubular mag so much that you only have 4-5 shots at your command. :) Real loser of a combo, actually.

Having a lever action and revolver that shoot the same ammo sounds like a good thing from my point of view. Revolvers are fun to shoot, lever guns (my favorite ones:D 0 are exceeding fun to shoot, and VERY BEA-U-TI-FUL!! Go to the store, and you only need to buy one box of ammo, and you can shoot BOTH you rifle AND your revolver. Also the best combo for any form of mounted shooting.

That, and it will actually kill whatever you're shooting at.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

To those who favor EFFICIENCY in their tools, a CAR-15 is indeed a splendorous sight. A good 223 softpoint is actually a BETTER killer than is a 44 Mag swc, even if the latter is fired from the rifle. It transmits more shock, destroys more tissue. I've seen even 223, 55 gr ball, even from 11" barrels, down deer as "quickly" as does 170 gr 30-30 sp ammo. That is, they run 50-100 m, flop around a bit, then expire. I know of several cases where .44 mag swc's let them run 200+m.

I've seen 223 sp;s blow chucks nearly

in half. 44 swc just makes a .5" hole, even from the carbine. 240 gr jhp's, from 4" barrel of a revolver, do no better, either. There's LOTS more small game and varmints than there is big game, and the .44 is no elk or big bear gun, anyway. It's not even a 200 yd deer gun, actually. So even if you AINT going by legal seasons, .44's a joke as a hunting gun, and it's certainly a joke as a fighting gun.
