The original or first model of the 444 Marlin (model number and cartridge) does not have a pistol grip. It is also a rifle and not a carbine. I have had my 444 since 1967 and it is a first model gun. Drawback is that it has a 1-38 twist as I recall which does not do bullets over 265gr very well. The newer guns are 1-20 twist I understand.

This is excellent reasoning for going with the 45/70. As others mentioned, the 45/70 can do very well with a range of bullets from 300 to well over 500 grains, but, as good as the .444 is, I've personally not seen one handle even 300-grain bullets really well, though the 1-20" twist barrels should.
