Does anybody make a 38spl/357 single shot "western style" rifle?

I've been looking for a single shot "western style" rifle - i.e. something like a rolling block, etc. that is chambered in 38/357 as a companion piece for my New Vaquero SA.

There are plenty of lever guns - Henry, Rossi, Winchester, etc. but the only thing that I can find that is single shot is the H & R "handy rifle" which is a modern style single shot top break.

Does anyone know of anyone making a rolling block, Sharps, etc. that is chambered in the 38/357 cartridge? Or am I going to be limited to the lever guns?

Thanks.

The H&R design goes back to the mid 1800's.

Wow! That Pedersoli rolling block is just beautiful! Now I want one!

Darn it, Man!


(I got a rolling block .22, from 1924, but it just ain't the same....)

There's also the 1885 Low Wall falling block. Uberti's website shows them in .357. http://www.ubertireplicas.com/lever-1885low.php#prod

Thanks fellas - in all of my looking, I neglected to hit that site. Either the rolling block or the low wall would be what I'm looking for. Will keep my eyes open now to see what I can run across. Thanks!
