I'm also attmpting to find info on a .44 mag carbine from my youth. I saw it in SOF and it was a .44 mag magizine feed through the grip carbine. I believe it was selective fire and they had a long review on it. If you remember the carbine and any info to point me in the right direction I would appriciate it.

Thanks!

Sounds like a one-off prototype or something SOF dredged up.

If it was in .44 Mag, it would have to be a locked-breech design of some kind. Probably be gas operated.

I am coming up blank on anything like that with a mag in the grip design.

The Ruger Deerstalker looked like a 10/22, but was a gas operated semi-auto with a 4-shot tube magazine.
Not select-fire either.

The Wilkinson Terry Carbine fits the discription, except it was a 9mm, and was not select-fire.

Sorry I can't help!

PS: I'm having a hard time figuring out why anyone would build a select-fire weapon to shoot a rimmed revolver round???
Mag capacity with a through-the-grip straight mag would be very limited.

Remington 788 bolt action came in .44 Mag, and had a detachable magazine.

The OP said it was selective fire.

That means it was a .44 Mag semi-auto with a selector switch to make it a machinegun!

Something made from a Desert Eagle?

I would post an answer but I'm still trying to get over the 10-22 that Ruger made into a .44 Mag:)

Back in late 1990s or early 2000s some German-based company (IIRC it was Sommer & Ockenfuss GmbH) tried to make "tactic00l" carbines from Desert Eagle pistols fitted with stocks and long barrels
I believe company has folded and went into oblivion several years ago.

upd.

found a crude pic of the beast :evil:

Thanks Max. Interesting.

I think it might have been a .44 Auto Mag. From my recollections it looked something like the Linda, in fact that's were I first started looking. Should have been around 1980-84.

It had a telescoping stock and clip feed through the grip.

I do seem to recall seeing that picture on the cover about 25 yrs ago. I don't think it was an auto mag but it could have been, that was too long ago to remember.

I believe the .44 mag ruger rifle came along way before the 10/22.
