Standard .44 carbine vs. "Deerfield" version

I am in the market for a semi-auto .44 Ruger Carbine. I never knew there were different variations of them until today when I started looking at them on gunbroker. I am familiar with the standard carbine, but I saw several Ruger/Deerfield carbines too. I noticed the Deerfields have an open topped reciever with a Mini-14 or M1A style bolt handle and rotating bolt. Aside from this difference what else is different between the Ruger standard and the Ruger Deerfield?

Thanks

fishwishin, Think of the "standard" as a .44 cal. 10/22 and the "deerfield" as a .44 cal. Mini 14..... does that help? The standard uses a tubular instock (forend) four round magazine and the deerfield uses a four round rotary box magazine. Experts on both or either model chime in anytime. Best regards.....

Season’s Greetings Fishwishin - you might also want to look at the 44 "International" if you like wood to the end of the bbl.
Here's a picture of my circa 1966 44 Intl - close to mint condition . . .



I'm in a tight spot right now on another project - may have to part with a few of my prized possessions - hopefully not this one . . .

Best regards - RogerD

.44 carbine for sale....maybe

Just bought a mint RS Model, and my early (5-digit no prefix) .44 carbine may be up for sale. This one is in the 80xxx range and is really nice. Will know if it is available later this week-I gave my cousin first refusal, and I have to honor that.

From what I have been reading the "Older" style is the preferred .44 carbine. On another note I just picked up an "Old" school Ruger Carbine. Will take her out Saturday and put a few rounds down range.
