I have the 357 mag. Sweet doesn't begin to describe this rifle.
The Timber Wolf is a lightning fast, exceptionally smooth, pump action rifle with an underbarrel tubular magazine as on a 22 rifle. The top of the receiver has weaver mount rails machined into the receiver (similar to the Ruger Minis). Yet the top of the receiver is grooved so that the standard iron sights can be used alternatively or even while an optic sight is mounted. The iron sights are accurate. Bench rested I shot silver dollar sized 50 yard groups. Given my old eyes and the inability to "see" the sights, I think that's darn good. Standing, off hand, I put 8 rounds into a 3" group - not bad whne you consider I'm 60 years old and wasn't wearing my glasses for the off hand test. I was deciding whether the TWolf was 'emergengy suitable'. I believe it'll do just fine.
The rifle takes down into a 24" barrel/receiver section and 17" buttstock section by means of a coin slotted screw at the rear of the action similar to the Marlin M39 take down action. Re-assembly takes less than 30 seconds and the magazine "can" be fully loaded even when "taken down". These days, take down couldd be the way to go in an urban environment. A broken down long arm, is usually noot recognizable as such by the scairdy cats and is easy to stash in a vehicle or even carry in a day pack or briefcase.
The buttstock tang is vertically adjustable by means of an allen screw hidden under the tang. Thus it is possible that the comb and drop at the heel may be adjusted to favor either optic sight or iron sight when you mount the rifle to your shoulder.
Last of all, the action digests 38 Special rounds just as easily as it does 357 magnum rounds: without the slightest hiccup. It is this characteristic that elicits the one MAJOR drawback peculiar to the Timber Wolf - it's too damned much fun to shoot! You'll burn up a LOT of ammo.
