I have one and it's not going anywhere. It's a 5 digit serial number peep sight model made in 1961 and wears an equally old Weaver K 2.5. IMO it's the deadliest close range brush gun in existence.

I owned a original Ruger 44 Carbine back in 1972-3. I sold it and regretted selling it almost immediatly. In 2001 I purchased the Ruger Deerfield Carbine and I think it is even better than the orginal 44 Carbine. I am keeping this one for good. Tell your Son alot of people think that a 44 carbine is a near perfect combination of power, accuracy, and handy portability, with good handling qualities. Hold on to yours, you won't be sorry

this is all news to my foreign ears, this sounds amazing!
a .44 would have some serious stopping power and (if I'm correct)
is capable of effective suppression, right?
This sounds like exactly the type of rifle I want for the bush.

You can't go wrong with .44mag with carbine ballistics for close/brush range. Just think-5 shots of .44mag joy as fast as you can pull the trigger. Mine has accounted for several deer that I may or may not gotten if I'd been using something else.
