i have read nothing but good why else would they stop making them wait for mini fad to die down come out with stainless/synthetic version with new optics options possibly in a .454 casull model it makes good buisness sence. What i would like to know is when did they start making peep sight version and when did they stop speaking of the tube fed model only.

44 Carbine

I have an early one made in 1962 (mint) and love the way it shoots. Like anyother auto just keep them clean and there should be no problems

I have a late model 99/44 deer field that is in pride of place in the cabinet its in near new condition... bought it off a guy that had never fired it from new, he didnt want to renew his firearms licence so he bought it in it to a friend of mines gun shop, and i was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.Its an outstanding little deer rifle for woods and brush shooting i also recently bought a stainless synthetic m77 /44 bolt mainly because due to the collectible nature of the deerfield i can relegate it to the protection of the gun cabinet and use the stainless m77 without the worry of any wear and tear on the deerfield....although i like carrying it so much i may not be able to resist it (the m77 carrys well to).

I had a friend that bought one and it had one minor issue, the front action mounting screw would constantly work loose and when that happend it would start stringing shots in about an 8 inch group. It did that several times and I took the rifle and glass beaded the front section of the stock and added just a bit of material, problem solved. That was several years ago and I can't remember exactly what the bedding issue was but there was no problem correcting it and it may have been partciular to that one rifle. That rifle, after rebedding, would put five shots into 1.5 inches at 100 yards with factory 240 grain ammo. I don't know many people who would not be satisfied with those results from a .44 mag semi auto carbine.

I have a 1962 model and it has been the a GREAT rifle. Loaded with 300 XTP it is a great deer (or bear) gun. Only had one problem with it and that was my own fault; when I cleaned it one time I put the gas plug back in backwards. the next time I fired it, it stuck in half-eject position and was a bear to unstick. When I got it apart and noted the problem, all was well. Don't bother trying to get reapir parts for one and Ruger is no help at all. If you find an early model for $400, BUY IT!!!!!!!! I wouldn't give a plug nickel for one of the newer models.
