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.
