Stopped by a local shop that I don’t check too often but on Friday afternoon I had a little time and thought I'd stop and browse. While cruising the racks seeing mostly winny 94's I came across a receiver that looked like a Marlin and immediately pulled her from the shelve. First thing I notice it’s a straight stock guide gun but when my eyes caught the ports, I quickly scanned the barrel and tag figuring it to be a 45/70 but to my surprize confirmed it to be a 444P. I've been looking for one of these for a few years now and I couldn’t believe I found one in my backyard too speak... LOL. Best part is it’s in very nice shape with just a few very minor scratches around the stock sling swivel post. Needless to say I brought her home and added it to my other (2) 444's, a 2008 22" and a NIB 2008 444XLR which I originally intended to cut down and make a guide gun out of.
Good find, since you don't need the XLR now, I'll take it off your hands.

Welcome to the club! She's a beauty..... When I found mine at a gun show I figured it was a 45/70 or 450. Dang near hurt myself getting the cash out of my billfold so fast when I realized what it was. I haggled about 30 seconds on price and said SOLD! You know, if I ever run into another in good shape I'll buy it for sure cash or credit (whatever it takes). People worry about availability of brass, etc... not me, I just buy when I can and I'll reload forever.
Congrats on your new powerhouse.
