Ruger's Auction To Benefit Honored American Veterans Afield

Ruger hasn't made any of these for a long while.  The auction this week is a 1974 vintage .44 Magnum Carbine!  Here is Ruger's description from  "You are bidding on a .44 Carbine rifle. The serial number is 100-49782, and the testfire date is March 5, 1974. This .44 Carbine rifle features a fixed tubular magazine that holds four rounds plus one round in the chamber. It has an American walnut stock with a curved, metal butt plate, a barrel band at the front of the forend, and sling swivels. This 44R model features a blued, 18-1/2 inch barrel with a folding leaf rear sight adjustable for elevation, and a 1/16 inch gold bead front sight. The frame is drilled and tapped for scope mounts. There is no manual warning on this rifle, and the Sturm, Ruger address is stamped into the top of the barrel. The rifle is being sold “as is.” The purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale. The .44 Carbine rifle will be shipped in the 44 Carbine rifle box it had been stored in. The rifle is a part of the Ruger factory collection in Southport, Connecticut, and a Certificate of Authenticity will be mailed to the winner of the auction.
