    357mag Bolt action, new on the market

    If you could buy a reasonably priced ( similar or slightly less $$ to an 1894 marlin)5 shot clip fed, handy and light bolt action in 357 mag would you?

    So fast it would make your head spin, maybe someone like CZ will take the idea to heart, I seriously doubt anyone in the U.S. would do it. Why, have you heard rumors? Do tell.

    I don't need one but would buy one, just because... I have Marlin 1894Cs and a Browning Lowall, so don't need another, but the cartridge is so much fun, and so easy to work with that it deserves another platform. The same platform could be used for 218 Bee, 25-20 Wcf, 32-20 Wcf, 256 Win Mag. I suppose the .327 Federal(?) would work. 10mm anyone?

    I sent an email to Lipseys on this about a month ago. Told them that Ruger already chambered 22 Hornet and 44 Mag that Lipsey would hit a gold mine if they had a special run both in blued and then stainless. Don't know what will happen.

    But Lipsey's is always looking for ideas for exclusives that they can run the margins up on. Email your dreams and desires:

    hmmm, 357 mag bolt gun. Depends on the clip. If big boolits could be seated far out and still have it feed, I'd probaby have to get one.

    if it could be converted to 357 Max or started out as a 357 Max. Most likely I'd probably try to acquire one.

    I said "maybe" , but if it were 357 Maximum I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    Thumbs up We need one!

    Gents!
    We positively NEED any and all forms of rifles chambered for both the 357mag and the 357Max! Both are outstanding when used in light, handy rifles, and what fun they are as well!
    I will gladly purchase rifles chambered in either fine cartridge.

    I would consider buying such a rifle. I HAD a Rossi 92 and gave it to a nephew. Actually, I sold it to him for way LESS than I paid for it. I how have an H&R handi-rifle in that caliber. What kind of .357 rifle are you talking about. Would it be something like the old .30-30 bolt action or, some new design from Europe. My computer will not allow me to spell europe with a lower case e. Keeps underlining it in red. That's a good color for europe. Don't like their laws but, will buy their guns if the price is right.

    Has anyone shouted "Group Buy" yet? Yes, I would buy a 357 Mag bolt rifle. The original proposal was something like "light and handy" or such. This sounds like a fun item that can offer multiple load development experiments. I would not even consider glass on this type of a system. Not that I don't regularly use (need) improved sight systems for these tired old eyes. I just like the light and handy concept for a stroll through the fields and timber. 357 Maximum? Yup, I would get in on that caliber if it were offered instead of the Magnum. Just keep it light and handy.

    Talking

    I would be happy if Ruger chambered their 44/77 in 357 mag with the ability to shoot the RCBS 200 grain bullet. I have two of the Browning lowwalls in 357 mag and they are fun to shoot.

    Yes to the .41 magnum. I would probably buy a .357 first though. I have recently discovered the .41 magnum and it is great.

    I might purchase one for the “uniqueness” of it…

    Or, are there bolt actions presently available in the 357 Magnum cartridge and at what price and availability?...

    But, would I like it more than my older 1894C that just enjoys 358429's and SR-4759?...

    Maybe. It wolud depend if the gun has scaled to the size of the cartridge or not. I have no desire for a large ring 98 Mauser in .357, but something the size of a Model 43 Winchester would be great.

    I am still kicking myself for not buying one of the Timberwolf .357 pumps when they were available.
