I had one with an old Redfield wideview scope on it. It was an early model with the built in magazine. It was a 50 to 75 yard carbine. It was an easy/soft shooter and fun to shoot. It was pretty accurate as well.
If you want a good short range carbine, go for it. Although .44 mag ammunition is getting pricey.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
