    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!

    Ruger made a 10/22 in .44 mag could that be it? I doubt it if yours was feed through the grip sorry not much help. I have alway wanted something like that i will be watching to see what it is too

    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.
