The Marlin 1894 was made in musket configuration with a 30 inch barrel but I can't find anything like that on the 444.
All the same, it's cool looking rifle.

Try a hot air gun it may have loctite or another product. Or soak in penetrating oil for a few days.Take your time it will come out.
Velocity is thrilling, but diameter does the real killing.
Good thought thanks
If nothing else, it is unique.
You might heat the screw with a soldering iron....just a thought.

A Ghost Ring brings everything into perspective.
I think it looks great (and very interesting).
I'd jump on it and hold it with both hands, so no one else gets it.
drop or two of kroil overnight on barrel band screw
i would buy
That one would be fun to go through and research. I took a chance on what appeared to be an unusual S&W 629 a few years ago. It turned out that only 15 were made in a special run.
