ruger 44

Hi i am new here and just picked up a ruger 44 carbine from 1962. the gun is pretty good shape except were someone drilled and tapped the left side of the reciever for a williams peep sight, and its kind of a rough job. but my questions is that did the reciever come with 2 sets of mounting holes? it has a scope base on the rear set of holes and a base on the begining of the barrell. so there is a set of tapped holes at the end of the reciever and i was wondering is there a 1 piece base that goes on the reciver mount?

I have the second year of production of the Ruger 44 Magnum Carbine. Mine is a custom model, nicer stock and no iron sights, and appears to be a factory offering. The top of the receiver is drilled and tapped for a scope base and it wears a Luepold/Redfield standard one piece base with a Luepold 2x M8 scope. I don't know the number on the base.

Earlier this year I sent the trigger group to Bill Springfield in Colorado Springs who did a really nice trigger job, big improvement.

I told you wrong! Pulled it out from the back of the safe to check and it has the two piece Redfield style double dovetail bases. Took a couple of photos.

There are four holes on the top of the receiver, but my rig is only using the rear two of those and the front base is on the barrel. The serial number begins 7,07XX.

Could not find a way to insert an image on this forum software directly from my machine rather than from a url.
