    This wasn't really in the budget right now. But I know I'd kick myself if I didn't get one. Almost wish there were fewer choices for finish. But got my order in, thanks for doing this.

    Is caliber conversion between 357 and 44 possible? i.e. can we get a kit - same lower but two barrels and two cylinders?

    No. The upper part of the lower frame (just under the cylinder) is larger on the .44 Mag version.

    Can the the .357 version also shoot .38? I guessing there's not enough force to cycle the action.
    Eat, sleep, , reload.

    With a simple spring swap it can yes.

    Neat until half the rounds slide out when he tips it skyward before forcefully jarring that cylinder closed (which makes me cringe imaging someone doing this to a Mateba)

    it's perspective, gun starts pointed at the floor and when it's "tipped skyward" it's actually just being tipped back onto the horizontal axis... you're right about that cylinder crime though.
