Is there such a thing? I can`t even find aftermarket stocks of any kind for these things. If any of you guys can point me in a direction, I`d appreciate it.

Good luck!! When I was looking for a regular replacement stock for mine, all I could find was some dude in Oregon who had unfinished stocks for sale for $200.

Seriously?

I did not even know of this guns existence. That is actually pretty neat. To bad it only holds 4 rounds. A semi auto 44 magnum carbine that could hold 7-10 rounds would be pretty dang cool.

Deerfield Carbine? Good luck.

I've wanted one of those for ages, but in their infinite wisdom, Ruger stopped making them and 22 WMR 10/22's.

Same thoughts here... it looks like a 10/22 on steroids.

It would be costly but you could hog out the std rotary to hold a Desert Eagle mag body . I always hoped Ultimak would make a rail for it too.

No idea about a pistol-grip stock, but if you have the older tube-fed gun you should be able to retrofit a 10/22 stock. The 10/22 was actually designed as a companion to the .44 carbine –– they have the same LOP, sights, etc. The 10/22 Tech Sights will also work on the older .44s, FWIW.

I've got one (the tube fed one) as does everyone at my deer shack. Story from Ruger's gunsmiths (who will still work on one if you send it in) is that they are not a long-lasting design and they were tough to make reliable. Too much variance in ammo, I'd guess, and whiny people who shoot LRN or wadcutters in them and never clean them (they are a pain to field strip and clean). Lead from the bullets will clog the gas ports.

They do wear out (much like the Remington 740-series autos) and when they're dead they're dead. I shoot mine sparingly. Mine shoots about 4MOA with Hornady LeverEvolution, as long as you wait 5 minutes between shots.

That would be cool, and I'd probably buy one at that point.

Until then....I'll pass.
