Hey thar Cuzzins!
I just picked up a used but very nice condition
older model Ruger 44 mag semiauto carbine at a
little podunk gunshow that was in my neck of the woods last w/e.
Have'nt formally benched her yet, but rested on a
camo huntin vest across the toolbox in the back of my pickup, she groups real well with Georgia Arms
240gr.JHP's at 50yds.
Question cuzzins; where might a feller get a type of peep sight to put on her in place of the factory folding rear "V"? Yer ol cuzzin's peepers ain'nt what they used to be, and those peepsights do wonders to improve my shootin.
Also thinkin about puttin one of those fiber optic front bead replacements on the front.I use the FO's on all my bow sights and on my Marlin "Big Medicine" .444 Marlin lever rifle.They are the cat's hind end fer low light shootin!
By the way, I paid 325.00 American fer the Ruger.
Don't figure I got a great deal, but did'nt get hurt either.See ya cuzzins! Yer cuzzin, Mitch.

Well Cuz I have a link for you It mounts on the receiver in the scope base holes. Sure would give you a long sight radius. Bonus it comes with a F.O. front sight.
Good luck with the .44! I used to use one for deer. Great brush gun. Very reliable and accurate semiauto. They are getting pretty scarce. I would not mind buying one these days. Your price seems reasonable for the gun in good shape.
To Cuzzins Jack O & Klaus:
Thanks fer the quick feedback on my post.Soon as I leave here I'm headed fer the link cuzzin Jack gave me.
The excuse I gave to the misses fer buyin the new piece was that it was fer her to use deer huntin this next season........Well, sounds good ta me anyway.What was surprising to me,was how little the thing kicks.I guess it's cause of the
gas operating system it uses.Well cuzzins,better head off into the sunset fer now.
Later, yer cuzzin Mitch.:p
