.44 Special, yes

Not aware of the .44-40. Just a thought but the 44-40 bullet is listed as .427 while 44 Magnum is .429 and 44 Special runs .430. I'm not sure if that smaller size does well in the current Ruger. 44 barrels which might account for their not chambering for it.

No. After the Vaqueros in .44-40 were dropped (all non-Bisley) after poor sales, the cartridge has been non-existent for Rugers. Just not enough interest. However...my .44-40 I bought used was in the Bisley configuration when I got it. It's since been changed back to it's original style.


Of course being that this is in the "double action" area, there's also no Ruger .44-40's that are double action.
