I have decided that I need a .44 carbine for my next gun. I would like to use iron sights. The only options I've found (that can be bought new) are the Rossi M92 lever carbine with the 16" barrel, 8+1, which can easily be purchased under $500. Also, the Ruger 77/44 bolt action with 18.5" barrel, 4+1 but uses detachable rotary magazines. I saw it at a LGS for $649. Ruger used to make a .44 semiautomatic rifle based on the Mini-14. Marlin also made/makes .44 leverguns but they are unobtainium. I am torn. Are there any other options I am missing?
