The life cycle of the 444 has seen 5 different models, in the last 16 years three models, the 444SS, 444P and the XLR, the 444P and XLR was not really made by the boatload, sparingly at best. Marlin put most of their Big Bore Eggs in the 45-70 basket, several models per year, plus all the specials from places like Davidsons, then throw in the LTD series and Marlin made way more of the 45-70's in way more configurations, so there's way more of the other big bores to go around. 444's are at a premium right now, the prices are all over the map!
