Those 44 rifles kick when shot with a full house magnum load don't they?
(24 gr. W296, 240 gr. bullet)
I get about 1700 fps out of 20" 44 Magnum carbines.
The typical hard butt-plate doesn't exactly help either.
I had my old gunsmith and reloading guru (now sadly gone) mount new wood with a nice butt-pad on my favorite one which is a Browning B-92.
The 92 action is much better suited to the revolver cartridges than the 94 although the latter does work.
I feel the 92 action may be intrinsically stronger/stiffer due to the fact the bottom is solid.
The 444 as it looks now with peep sight, happy trigger, and better butt-pad after a complete rebuild.
Then a couple of more obscure 44 rifles.
