I am looking into them and cannot remember who made them. Marlin or Winchester?

Bob

.357 MAXIMUM

Both companies make them.  I've been thinking about getting one for a while now, but it always seems to get put on the back burner.  But both companies offer them.  Anyone make any recommendations on model/barrel length, etc.?

Marlins website says they do not do custom work and I cannot find a reference to .357 Maximum. They have .357 Magnum.

The .357 Maximum was developed by Ruger I believe. I am wanting it for a light deer cartridge.

Hi Bob. Thanks again man. I have a Marlin 1894 in 44 Mag and I love it. I've never heard of .357 maximum, but here are the Marlin boards.

I've got a .357 Max TC pistol. I don't remember there being a lever action rifle for it offered by either Marlin or Winchester. Good luck in your search.

I don't recall any commerical lever action offered in 357 maximum.  It was offered in the ruger blackhawk, but from what I remember reading the high pressures very near the forcing cone really ate up the revolvers.  Dan Wesson still has an offering as the barrels are easialy replaced.

In theory the a 357 magnum rifle can be rechambered in 357 maximum.  Actually it a  project I've considered before.  Jim

I was thinking of that myself. Now all I have to find is a nice Marlin in .357 and a chamber reamer for a reasonable price.

I know! GROUP PURCHASE on the chamber reamer!!

while on the topic of 357MAX rifles, Savage made their Model 24 combination gun in 357MAX/20GA for awhile.   I have seen one, but I doubt they made very many.  The 357MAG/20GA versions are more common, and would be an easy conversion.

Those NEF/H&R 357 single shots would be an easy conversion, too.
