    Are they still in production? What is the going price? Any other calibers? I would be more interested in a .44 magnum. I have been very happy with all my other IMI guns (Desert Eagle, Baby Eagle, UZI.) I just wanted to see what you fine people thought about the Timberwolf or if you had any experiance with this IMI rifle.

    Timberwolf rifle

    The IMI Timberwolf is not in production anymore. I believe the
    last importation of the Timberwolf was in 1989. The rifle was importated by UZi America, Action arms & Springfield Armory. The rifle was offered in two calibers being 357magnum / 38 special and in 44 magnum. It was also offered in two finsished being blued and a chrome finish. The 44 magnum Timberwolf is the rarest of both models either chrome or blued. I once was told that under 200 44 magnum Timberwolf rifles were ever importated into the U.S. The Timberwolf is and excellent rifle being well made and the receiver being milled and having a nice walnut grade stock. The stock on the Timberwolf if also adjustable. So when the user puts a scope on the milled rail at the top of the receiver. The 357 magnum Timebrwolf produces the same enrgy at 100 yds. that of a rifled cartrige the 7.62x39. The 357 magnum Timberwolf is a very accurate rifle and go good with a 357 magnum side arm. I use to own a 357 magnum Timberwolf and loved it. The only reason I sold it is that I was given good $$$ for it. I know regret the sale of my rifle. I have seen them sell between $600 dollars and $700 dollars. Check gunbroker.com frequently they come up for acution frequently in the 357 magnum. I have never seen a 44 magnum Timberwolf for sale. The Timberwolf is a very solid made rifle and it also has the feature of a shotgun. Being that by depressing the switch located on the receiver. On e can unload the gun pumping the forward stock and thus ejecting all ammo located in magazine tube. I was once told that The Timberwolf was marketed as a home selfdefense rifle.

    Back in 2002 New Helvetia was selling 95% complete guns. Someone on here may know the serial number range they were selling as they may have been completed with non-factory parts.
    Here is their add from SGN:

    You don't have to shout you know

    Friend of mine here in the Netherlands has a Timberwolf in .357 Magnum. He had his ejector missing and it took a long time for him to find one. Parts are a problem on this side of the pond. Not sure how it is on your side.

    Returning to the topic, I got to handle a .44 Timberwolf at a Phoenix Crossroads of the West gun show some years ago. What surprised me was that the .357 and the .44 barrel are the same barrel! The only difference is that the .44 barrel is bored for the larger .44 projectile while the .357 barrel is bored for the smaller .357 projectile.

    I wonder if the barrel weight difference would affect accuracy..?

    Mike:

    I recently bought a 357 Timberwolf and the barrel mass adds to the rifle's longitudinal moment of inertia; it wants to stay on target moreso than a light-barreled, lower-mass-out-front weapon of equal dimensions.

    Sort of like a 16.5" Marlin 1895SDT in 45-70 vs. a 26" Marlin 1895CB. The longer barrel and mag tube helps to keep the rifle steady-on.

    Hey guys, new here, but if anyone is looking for a 44 mag Timberwolf, I just finally put mine up on Broker. Didn't want to part with it, but really can't afford to keep it. Feel free to message me with any questions. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=396772145
    All the best,
    - Jeremy
