"Deerstalker" and other .44 carbines at gun show today...

Saw three Ruger .44 carbines today at a local gun show.

One was (four digit) serial number 3XXX ~1962 "Deerstalker". I am not very experienced at judging condition on used rifles, but I would say well used but good condition. Asking price was $650.

Another .44 carbine was also an early one sn 9XXXX ~1964. I think it was also at $650.

The third example was 102-6XXXX ~1979, appeared very good perhaps excellent condition. The seller says it was unfired and was in what looked to be an original box with manual, although I didn't check the box to see if it had a serial number on it. The wood stock was blemish free. However, one thing made me very suspicious, the butt stock plate was plastic. I thought it was only recently that plastic butt stock plate were used, and I was only aware of them on 10/22's. Asking price was $850.

I got to see a Deerstalker also , #3xx and only wanted 650. Pretty good shape until looking at recoil pad install...Ouch. Also saw a .44 with a colorful lam stock. Didn't get close enough to find out price.

I have a 102-4xxxx s/n 44 Carbine ('78-'79) that also has the plastic butt plate. I found a metal butt plate to reaplce it years ago but still have the original one.

Examine that Deerstalker carefully. Ruger had a problem with parts breakage on some of them (I think it was the operating rod) and I'm not sure parts are available any more to fix them.
