I'm looking to buy a 444 ultralite and I was curious if Taurus makes a 44 mag carbine. I'd love to have a rifle that uses the same cartridges, so I don't have to buy different ammo. Thanks !!

I just saw a .444 lever gun for sale but in Fla we dont shoot aything big enough to warrant it. .44 would be cool.

You can find Ruger .44 carbines in both automatic and lever action for around $500.

Still haven't bought one, but I'm still looking. Saw a carbine lever action the other day for $400.

Not a Taurus, but a Marlin 1894:

Marlin Lever Guns are known for their strength and accuracy. Had a .45/70 version many many years ago.

Also a Puma:

Puma is the old Rossi lever Winchester 1892 copy under a different name. Barrel lengths (16, 20, and 24 inches) and finishes (Blue or Stainless) vary and supply seems strained like everything else.

Boy, you resurrected a blast from the past !! I'd still love to have one of these, but settled for a Marlin 30-30. It's on layaway and hopefully I'll have it out by Christmas.
