Hipower will become famous soon enough
Which generation? The older tube feed, or rotary mag?

And congrats. I'm a fan of them.

Pics

Here are some pics. First thing I want to do is take off the cheap scope and over/under mounts. Thinking a leupold 2x7 would be a good fit,just need to figure out what kind of mount. Stock is nice but a few spots need some repair.

Actually, not sure if it is possible, but I was thinking Scout mount / scope would be nice.
Would need a scope with a little longer eye relief, kind of what you sometimes see on the Marlin lever action guide guns. Do they make a mount like this?

It is a tube feed, not rotary.

Nice! A friend of mine has one for sale that he has neglected some and last I saw had some rust on the barrel. I'm going to check it soon out and make him an offer.

I love the Ruger .44 carbines. Wish that ruger would reintroduce them. I think there would be a good demand for them, considering how popular they are on the secondary market.

Hi gang,
I am going to start reloading for my 44 mag carbine, can you all share some loads that work well for you?
Will be using 240 grain bullets.

Based upon that ser#, it appears to be a 1981.
