Yes, but Rossi only makes .44 magnum along with 38/357 and the .45. They are going for about $500.00. A true 44-40 will will cost you about $2,000.00+ from Eagle Squadron. They make the only true reproduction, and even they don't realize that there were 3 different models that Steve used on the show.
It is definitely neat, but I honestly don't think it will be any more practical than your 8" revolver.
But if you're going to get one, go .44mag all the way. You can load the .44 down to 70% power (say, 180gr @1400fps) and still be easily as effective as a .357 pushing its limits. Just the same, you could run a 240gr bullet at 1100fps and have a very effective closer-range hog or deer gun that would still do well on 2-legged varmints. In a 4lb gun that shouldn't be bad at all.
But still, I don't feel like it would do anything better than a big, heavy revolver.
Been waiting for mine since October. Finally be here by end of the week! Mine is in .357 Magnum. I know everyone says they are not very practical but since when do our toys have to be practical?? I think that after some practice it might make a great Deer gun for the woods where those short shots come into play. Anyone agree?? Off topic but gonna use my Kel-Tec Sub 2000 for some woods huntin'!! I'm am glad they didn't make it a side ejecter though. Also I think with it being in calibers that are more common than 44-40 Win is a smarter choice. Also gives a chance to see how much more punch the .45LC, .44Mag & .357Mag will have taking the advantage of a longer barrel length. Anyway I can't wait to start killing some pop cans & paper!!!
It is an interesting host for a suppressor. 44 Spl. loads are easily subsonic & you can use a .45 pistol suppressor since the pressure wouldn't be too high with the 12" barrel. I'd pay the $200 NFA tax stamp to make it a SBR & add the full length stock to make it useable. With some big, slow bullets it would be a good deer or hog gun.
