    Does anyone know if the gas operated 44Mag carbine (the later model with the detachable magazine) uses the same basic action (beefed up I imagine) as the Mini-14? They look very much alike and the few parts drawings I had seen make them look very similar, at least to my mind's-eye

    I have a 44 Deerfield. The receiver and bolt are basically the same design. The safety is different, it utilizes a cross bolt design which I personally prefer. The spring setup in the forearm is different also. It has dual smaller springs. I glass beded mine and with handloads it will shoot consistent 2 inch groups.
