Where Great Intelligence Goes To Be Insulted

 It looks like the Ruger .22 but this one is in 44 magnum. They discontinued it ages ago and I wish they hadn’t. It would have made for a fun little carbine.

  1. Agreed. Neat little carbine for where the brush is so thick, the dog has to back off to bark.

    That is some fine leatherwork there.

  2. Always wanted one years ago when I couldn't afford it. Now that I can, they don't make them anymore. Now it would be upwards of $800 to pick up a used one. I don't want it quite that badly.......

  3. My neighbor owned a Ruger .22. He put some inexpensive glass on top and used it for squirrel hunting. It was a nice rifle.

    In .44, this would make an outstanding camp gun.

  4. Had one, nice carbine equal to a 30.30 as far as brush shooting. Wished it had a clip instead of an internal magazine.

  5. Will it shoot all the rounds an Anaconda will?

  6. I had two and neither could group worth a damned at anything more than 50 yards. Now, I had a a Winchester trapper carbine in .44 Magnum….that could shoot!

  7. I like the old magazine ad that shows a strung up gorilla shot with this rifle.

  8. That's what it is - a camp carbine!

    I develop a split personality on them. A few will shoot really well. But most shoot like dogs. If you really leaned into your pistolcraft, you could turn your nose up at the carbine in some cases.
