I won't get the rifle delivered for several days - got it on gunbroker.

Part of me says dumb as hell, part of me likes it. If I were going to buy a LA 357, I'd go with the Henry 1st. Note: I don't own and have little to no experience with lever guns......

NO!

Stick with wood! I see the OP already got a gun, but my vote would be for the Henry. Shooting mine for the first time tomorrow.

Top - Bottom .357 Mag, .44 Mag, .22LR, .44 Mag

Thems is some nice guns. What make is the bottom one? I like the side-load actions better than the tube mag load ones.

Old Marlins

New Rossis

New or old Henrys

New or old Rugers is also good but rather bold action ish.

Bottom is a CT made (JM marked barrel) Marlin 1894 Cowboy Limited. Rest are Henrys. The Henrys are the smoothest. The Marlin, leaves a lot to be desired.

I have a Rossi 357 lever gun and love it! It is a good shooter... It was rough at first and needed a little slicking up. I have not regretted the purchase.

I never understood why someone would want a rifle in a pistol caliber. Then one day about five years ago I was looking through the used gun section at the Cabella's in Fort Worth, continuing my still unsatisfied search for the "right" Marlin in .35 Remington, when I picked up a Marlin 1894 lever action with the 16 1/2" factory ported barrel. The gun just felt so good in my hands that I had to take it home. Okay, .44 mag with heavy loads . . . I can justify a rifle for that.

Then a couple of weeks ago I saw a stainless steel .357 Ruger 77/357 in my lgs for about $400.00 (used). I STILL don't know what the advantage of a rifle in .357 would be over a "real" rifle caliber, but I tell you, that little Ruger sure was a nice gun, and I was tempted. If I'd been more flush that day . . . . sigh, but the pockets were a little flat and I passed. Sure was a good feelin' gun though.
