I haven't been able to find a whole lot of information on this rifle and I'm curious as to how common they are. It seems that most are 357 Magnum that the chamber has been reemed. Mine is not that case, it's stamped 357 Maximum.

I'm also not sure if the furniture is original as it's synthetic and a pistol grip. Anyone have any insight?

rare. Winchester is coming out with a round that's about the same as the maximum in a new platform but its hard to unseat 357mag.
Any idea how rare? I know it took me a really long time to find it. It has iron sights on the barrel which is something I specifically wanted. The guy I bought it from mounted a scope to it. He said it was already drilled/tapped so he didn't change anything, just mounted the scope.

Not sure what Winchester is going to try to accomplish, I don't think you're going to fill a void left by 357 mag.

In a word, sales. The 350 Legend was designed for AR15 platform rifles so will likely be very popular within the black rifle community.

The original H&R Ultra Hunter in 357 Maxi was made 1995-99 according to Goforth's book, checkered laminated straight grip stock, no sights, furnished with scope rail. I have that stock set, had it on a Mag/Maxi testing a scout mounted scope, didn't like the scout set up at all. I sold the barrel, Maxi is just not a usable chambering here, should work great for deer in eastern hardwood forests tho, lots surely like it.

It would be fun to play with for sure but I can't see it taking the place of anything. Kind of reminds me of 30 AR that Remington brought out a few years back and I imagine sales/use will be about the same.
