    You looking to use it for cowboy action shooting??

    If so get a uberti 1873. Save up if you have to you will thank me later.

    Three main guns at cas events are rossi marlin and uberti. Only ones I see that run without issues at some point are the uberti's.

    You buy a rossi or marlin and you end up spending the diff you woulda spent on a uberti getting it to run and it still will have issues.

    Skip the 44-40 for cas unless your rich as hell. Even handloading the brass is not easy to find nor cheap.
