Picked up a Ranch Hand in .44 Magnum last week. While i like the idea of a nice handy little carbine, i wasn't to sure how my shooting ability would be with that cutoff buttstock. I picked up a full size buttstock, inletted where it had to be inletted and refinished the original forestock and finished the buttstock to match.... Now i have a Rossi 1892 Trapper style with a barrel that is 12" overall length that i am pretty happy with. :) I'm in Canada. Perfectly legal up here as the firearm is purchased as a Non Restricted rifle up here. Its legal for me to add a full length buttstock.
Will be shooting the 265 grain Hornady that my Marlin .444 shoots. So far it cycles my dummy rounds like snot on glass. :D

Nice, :congrats:. Talk about big and little brothers :). I've thought about doing the same thing but I don't think I can do that here in the old USA. Let us know how she shoots.

It can be done here, you'd just have to jump through all the NFA Short Barreled Rifle hoops and wait about a year for your $200 Tax Stamp.

Wish it was as easy for us as our northern neighbors.

Neat Trapper!

Now that's just Purrrrfect! Talk about a handy Truck/ATV gun.... All that and a 44 mag to boot, don't get no better than that IMO!

Let us know how it shoots!

First thing that came to mind was "Howitser" version. Very nice conversion. How does it shoot?
