    There were some converted M1s that were made into .357. They called them the .357 carbine. But as far as I can see there are no others. Hope that helps...

    I used to go deer hunting in the 70s with a semi auto .44Mag Ruger carbine 4+1, got a few deer with 240 gr SJHP double taps. It looked exactly like the 10/22. Then, the 9mm "Camp Rifles" became popular for awhile (don't know why). Never seen a semi-auto rifle in a pistol caliber, though.

    There was a company in the 30s that began to develop a .357mag semi-auto rifle for LE use, but it evolved into the semi-auto 357/38 carbine with 10 shot mag, when they began 'tinkering' with various bullet configs. Never heard anything more about the idea. Probably no real market for 'em.

    Over on Weapons Guild there's a member who has converted his 1905 Winchester from .35 WSL to .357. On TheAKForum.com another member showed an AK he had built in .44 Magnum; it should be even simpler for a .357 since the rim snaps right into a standard AK bolt.

    Closest I've seen is the IMI Timberwolf pump gun in .357.
