That's a beauty!

That brings back some memories for me. In the summer of 1962 I saw an ad for a Ruger .44 Deerstalker carbine in Field & Stream. I went to the hardware store in Kennebunk, Maine and had the owner order me one. A couple of weeks and $104 and I had it in my hands. I loved that little gun. I put a Weaver K2.5 on it and used it deer hunting until I moved to southern Michigan where no rifles were allowed for deer. I still enjoyed shooting it and did often.
Sadly, a few years ago it was stolen along with many other guns in a home invasion. It is the one I miss the most

Very nice looking rifle. How may rounds does it hold?

I picked up my old Ruger carbine some years back after comming back form Iraq wounded. I got it for $350 an dits the one that has no removable magazine butt a tube fed inner magazine inside like a shotgun and it holsd 4 in the tube and 1 in the breech chamber. I put a M8 4X leupold long eye relief scope on top which is perfectly clearand I reload my own ammo for it to save money plus its hard to find ammo these days and this rifle must have full metal jacketed rounds in it only. What is really cool is these rifles like hard hitting 240 gr rounds and shoots like a dream you basically have a huge .240 gr HP round screaming down range at 1800 +fps and they go through anything they hit be it a deer, pig or bear. Remember no lead rounds only full metal jacket in them as lead rounds will cause build up and make the rifle unfirable.
people watch gun broker or action arms and jump on one of these little rifles they ones that where made in the 1990s have 1 /20 in twist raio which allows a bunch of different weight rounds to be shot in them but the old ones like mine have a 1/38 twist ration which makes it hard to shot most anything but 24o gr rounds in them. Still with only 240 gr rounds it works awesome especially for you reloaders out there...

That's one I let get away and a 357 Blackhawk. It seems to me the only guns I have sold and not regretted were black powder single shots. When you sell a firearm all you have is money and that just disappears.

The 44 Carbine is on my bucket list. There arent many left on the list, but the 44 carbine is. I hope to have one soon. I always liked the 10/22, and then found out about the carbine. A friend has one, and I have shot it, and even though I have no practical use for it, I still want one. Soon... soon. Will be a good companion for my 7.5" Super RedHawk 44 mag.
