hey guys, i am looking to get an approximate value on a rifle that i accuired in a trade with my father in law.

its a Ruger 44 mag carbine, made in 1977. not sure on the round count. FIL never shot any rounds through it and he has had it since the early 80s, i have put 80 rounds through it.

the grooving / engraving in the grip areas was done by my FIL, as were the end caps ( not sure what these are actually called). the wood for the ends is actually the same wood that was used on the ends of the old classic buck folder knives.

has a peep sight, not sure if that is aftermarket or not. holds 4 in the tube and 1 in the chamber.

accurate rifle, in great condition, fun to shoot.

It's worth nothing, send it to me immediately for proper disposal ;)

The last one I saw was un modified and I believe in the $550 to $600 price range. It went pretty quick so I guess it was a good price.

That looks like an aftermarket peep sight, and the wood's definitely nicer looking than the typical Ruger factory wood. I like the recoil pad much better than the Ruger factory setup as well.

I've seen these and their relatives, the Deerfield, in well-used condition in the $350-450 range at local shops. A clean one with upgrades would be more, as they're not very collectible, so improvements don't detract from the value.

from what i have gathered, the deerslayer is a 99/44 which uses a 4round magazine, this rifle has a 4 round tube.

allthough i am sure it will slay a deer:18:

I sold a stock Ruger 44 mag carbine about two month ago for $400.00 in very good used condition. I think yours may worth $450 or so in my neck of the woods. They are decent guns but not really desirable to collectors, I used to use one a lot for shooting small feral pigs that were tearing up a friends ranch. Worked great out to 75 yards or so.

The Deerfield (not Deerslayer or Deerstalker - common internet names for it), also known as the 99/44, is a .44 mag carbine with a 4 round removable mag, made from 2000 to 2006.

The Model .44 Carbine is a .44 carbine with a 4 round tubular mag, made from 1961 to 1985.

Manuals and SN info for either are available at www.ruger.com.
