    I just got one at a gun show. I came home and loaded some 300grn cast lead swc over 21.5grns of Win296. That has to be the handiest little lever gun made. I recovered 3 of the 5 rounds I shot they are very hard cast and they mushroomed like crazy. I shot it through 7 2"x12" wooden planks. I chopped the 3 I found out of a lighter stump. Off to the swamps I'm agoin to find me some wild piggy's

    :D Hey thar Cuzzin Jack!!
    Yea them little Ruger carbines er as handy as a
    pocket on a shirt.I had one of em in 22mag.when they furst come out wit em in '96.Stupidly traded her off a couple years later.
    In thet thar caliber tho, it were too much gun fer
    squrrels and such lessen ya popped em in thar
    dinky lil noggins.
    Sounds like ya got a purty mean handload a worked up fer yer new shootin iron. Aught ta be jest fine
    fer them swamp porkers down yurin way.Hopes ya got
    good luck a puttin sum bacon an sowbelly on yer
    table.
    Did ya scope er,or are ye a usin that thar factory
    rear sight?
    Ya know cuz,a fine gentleman an scholar once gave me sum reel good advice.........Put one o them
    Williams receiver peeps on the rear an a fiber optic bead on tha front o yer Ruger carbine.An
    I don'ts need ta tel ye what that thar fiber optic bead shines like in dim light......we already been through that one.Keep yer powder dry cuz,an yer good eye on tha target.Later,yer ol cuzzin Mitch.

    Cuzzin I'll probably go with the peep and the FO front. Causin you can't see very fer in em swamps down here. Might even tape the ole huntin knife to the barrel. Ya know just in case them piggy's come a runnin. A great day to ya cuzzin from the South of Alabama.

    I've been toying with the idea of making bayonet lugs for such rifles, which would be legal since they have no restricted features already. In fact, you could prabably put on a folder since the capacity is under 5rd. Maybe I oughtta get myself one...

    I was just funnin ya but it don't sound to bad. If em pigs get that close I'll be in a tree
     
  6. What would you pay for a "new in the box" Ruger 44 carbine? Not the deerfield, or the lever action, but the original? Just wanted to know, I may have that opportunity soon. Let me know, you fans of Ruger 44's. Thanks!

    I may be wrong but I would say between 4 and 5 hundred dallors at least in my neck of the woods.Hope this helps. P.S. anyhing lower than that should be a real bargin.

    Hey thar cuzzin Jack!:D
    Thet idee of yurin bout thet Arkinsaw Toothpick
    sounds like a goodin.
    Course ya could jest do like us Mizzuri Mules do up in these here parts and jest carry the thing between yer pearly whites.Course in my neck o the woods it's kinna hard ta find a feller wit a full
    set of teeth in his piehole.
    Ya cuz,go wit the peep n fiber optic bead. Both
    together cost me around 55 Samolians direct from
    Williams iffn I recall.My recomendation would be to not get the .570 high front bead(thets the one I got)cause it sticks up kinna high offin the base
    and would be reel easy ta bugger up iffn ya is clumsy like me.I'm double carefull with mine.Go with the .538 and ya still gots plenty of up n down adjustment with the rear peep.
    As to tha question thet thar feller asked bout the
    old model "new" 44 carbine,iffin it's got tha box n original papers wit it.......500.00 American easy.The full Manlicher stocked version...250.00 more.(I'm talkin bout one in excellent condition,
    98% overall)The one I jest got a couple months ago,(no box er papers)is in 95% overall give er take a couple percent, a few slight dings in tha wood and no rust er oxidation on tha metal,was iffn I member
    cost me 325.00 from a private feller at a gunshow.
    He was askin 375.00.Cash money talks.
    Here, cuzzins is a pic of it wit tha sling and Williams peep rear/F/O front or her.It ain't a close shot of her but ya might get tha idee.
    She's handy as all get out and ya could jest bout
    knock tha ol Brown Eye out of a goffer wit er at
    75yds. er so.:p
    Iffn ya gets tha chance get ya one. Only bound ta go up in value iffn ya takes good care of it.
    Well cuzzins(specially ma favorite cuz Jack)bout time ta head home an feed the wife and screw the chickens...........Uh, wait, I think I gots that bassakwards.I'll get er figgered out sumhow, trial n error ya mite say.Anyway,keep yer powder dry cuzzins and yer one good eye on the sights.Later, yer ol cuzzin Mitch.:cool:
