Default 357 single shot rifle availability

What single shot rifles are available in 357 now? I see Rolling Blocks and a few other nice historical reproduction guns, but what else is available?

Contender is another. If you go this route get the 357 Max barrel.
That way you can shoot max,Mag and 38 special.

Handis pop up on gun broker from time to time.

Henry is supposed to offer 357mag and 30-30 sometime in the future, only available in 223, 243, 308 and 44 mag so far, but they're supposed to have 45-70 out now too, here's a pic of my 308.

Midland Arms says they will have rifles (they just have shotguns right now) coming out before too long. Unknown what calibers yet. This is a hammerless break action.

That's a mighty nice looking rifle Tim. Is that the factory wood on it? Looks like it's a flip lever opening gun like a proper SxS gun. That was the single biggest thing I had against the handi rifle was that big ugly push button to open it.

I like the look of that Henry too. The Midlands Arms is an interesting possibility. Unfortunately, neither is available in the round I want yet but maybe they will be soon enough.

It's the factory stock, came just like you see it sans the scope and mounts. Other than lightening the 7lb trigger, the only change I'll make is to remove the gut hook front sight and make a filler for the dovetail. It weighs 7lbs 6Żoz scoped.

thanks,

Tim

That front sight is the only thing that looks out of place on that rifle... the rest of it is perfect.
