Pick one they are all good ones so far that I know. I am looking into getting a .357 Mag lever action for a range toy, plinker. I am liking the Rossi so far for price, and have heard a lot of good things about them.
You can get one chambered in .44 Mag if that is your wish. Several makers offer them. Henry, Marlin, and Rossi are the more affordable ones. Winchester makes some fine ones if you can afford them, and are willing to spend that much.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
