why didn`t ruger do it

If the sales of ruger lever action rifles are dead in the water its only because they would "not" make a larger capacity mag. The ruger 96/44 is far better weapon than rossi, winchester and marlin. Less moving parts, short stroke and accurate 100m+ its compact, rugid and built like a tank. Thats why i have made a 9rd stick mag for my bitch. Check it out on U-tube, two vids dry and live fire. Just type in 96/44 to see them. If ruger had done this then they would still be NO'1

Welcome! a lot of lever sales now-a-days are geared more to cowboy action shooting. If the lever gun does not have at least a 10 rd capacity its out of the running. And i doubt they would alow a ruger 96 to compete as not an "era" weapon.
The addition of 357/38 might help ruger and i agree it is an excellent design but ruger has never really tried to promote the 96.

You are right and i agree with you. But having no work shop or Eng skills i still managed to make working models. Ruger are you deaf aswell as blind, move with the times or you will close.

Welcome aboard,but I must say my .357 Marlin 1894 is better than a Ruger 96.

Bring your marlin to the UK, spend a couple of months in the field. The weather will turn it to rusty scrap iron. Rain wind and damp will eat it. To many external moving parts,the mag tube will rust up inside miss feed and jam. Bang Bang your toast. The 96/44 no external moving parts, in fact minimal moving parts. Drop out mags, you could leave it in a river for months and it would fire. Marlins are for nice warm and dry places.
