Anyone have a Ruger .44 carbine?
 
Anyone out there own or have used the Ruger .44 carbine? I have had this little rifle for many years now and it has served me well. Nice and easy to carry, and in the carbine configuration it really tames the .44 cartridge. Nice little gun in brushy areas like northern Vermont. It's too bad they stopped making it.

I'll post some when I finish the rifle. I am in the process of finishing up the stock. Had some wear and tear on it from over the years. Can't wait untill it's done!

I have the newer carbine, the Deerfield. It is accurate and I like it. My son thinks it is a waste and wants me to sell it. I just can't let go of it...yet.

I have one & for some reason I am more accurate with it just using the standard sights than any other rifle I own with standard sights

awesome little rifle, my dad's had his since about 1979 or so. looks just like the older ruger 10/22 with the barrel band (i reckon this is where their look came from), IDK. flip rear sight and smooth as silk firing...........i love that little gun.

Oh your boy is very wrong the ruger carbine gets every bit of juice there is in the 44 magnum. Its 44mag pistols that waste a lot of that cartrridges potential.
