I have always been under the impression that the old (tube magazines), .44 carbines used investment cast receivers. However, on another forum, someone stated that the receivers of such were originally machined from a solid billet of steel, and the reason for its discontinuance was the cost of machining the receiver out of steel. Be that true or be that false?
If true, that would be news to me...other than the Ruger .22 autos, I was under the impression that all early Rugers were investment cast.
