    I don't think so...It is a Lever-action rifle. I think the NEF Handi-Rifle (crack barrel, single shot) can be used for primitive weapon hunting...??

    Only Single Shot Rifles Guys:The 444 marlin as long as it is in a single shot is approved


    L.D.W.F. ISSUES LIST OF APPROVED PRIMITIVE WEAPONS FOR 2008-09 PRIMITIVE HUNTING SEASON
    Release Date: 07/08/2008

    In a response to the recent approval of Act 51, which partly consists of changing the language from a muzzleloader season to a primitive firearm season, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has issued a list of approved primitive firearms for the 2008-09 Primitive Firearm Season.

    All of the approved primitive weapons meet the criteria set forth by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission as authorized primitive firearms. The criteria is a single shot, breech loading, metallic cartridge rifle with metallic cartridges loaded with either black powder or modern smokeless powder, .38 caliber or larger, of a kind or type manufactured prior to 1900 and replicas, and reproductions or reintroductions of that type rifle having an exposed hammer. The pre-1900 distinction applies only to the firearm and not the ammunition. All approved primitive firearms may be fitted with magnified scopes.

    Approved single shot breech loading primitive weapons:

    · Sharps rifles or replicas
    · Remington Rollingblock rifles or replicas
    · Ballard rifles
    · Maynard rifles or carbines
    · Burnside carbines
    · Frank Wesson rifles
    · Farrow rifles
    · Remington Hepburn rifles
    · M1873-1888 Springfield (Trapdoor) rifles and carbines and replicas
    · Snider (British) rifles and replicas
    · Wesson & Harrington 1871 rifles
    · New England Firearms or Harrington & Richardson Handi rifles in caliber larger than .38
    · Winchester M1885 Hi Wall or Lo Wall rifles or replicas (Also Browning B78 or 1885) .38 or larger
    · Knight KP-1 in caliber .38 or larger
    · CVA Optima Elite in caliber .38 or larger
    · Traditions Pursuit break-open single shot in .38 caliber or larger

    Non-approved single shot breech loading rifles:

    · Ruger Number 1 and Number 3 (Reason: No exposed hammer)
    · Thompson Center Contender or Encore Carbines (Reason: Designed after 1900)
    · Mossberg SSi Single Shot Rifle (Reason: No exposed hammer and designed after 1900)

    If it's a single shot design mfr'd prior to 1900, and over .38 cal., yes. In other words, don't hit the woods with a Ruger #1 as a primitive weapon, or you might lose it....

    The .444 Marlin is a rifle cartridge designed in 1964 by Marlin Firearms and Remington Arms, so if this is correct there wasn't a rifle built for this cartridge until 1964.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    That's okay, as long as the rifle design is a single-shot designed prior to 1900, or a replica.....Like the Handi-Rifle (which is what I use in .444 Marlin)....
