I had a old Ruger Carbine that I bought from one of my old bosses back when-- condition was that if his son ever wanted to buy it back it would go-- Well I made a few $ and the gun is gone :(

So how is the new carbine, price, how does it shoot, etc and the big question are there any after market magazines that say hold ten rounds vs the 4? I can't find anything on the net so will assume they don't exists but one could hope--

Bill Ruger said you don't need 'em so that's all you get.

Seriously though, it is a rotary magazine. I don't think they could make a bigger one without totally redesigning the gun.

Nifty little gun, though. The original "Thumper".

I couldn't find the 44 magnum autoloader on the Ruger web site. Has it been discontinued?

I always thought it was a neat rifle too. Both the old and new designs. Except for the plastic forearm cover on the new design.

Are we talking about the 44 mag that looks like a 10/22?

If so I was looking to see if they made bigger mags for it a while back and found something on youtube where the guy manufactured some 9 round mags for it. Otherwise ive seen nothing.

Thanks -- That would be the one-- It woukld be neat if Ruger would figure out that they could have two markets maybe going for this rifle if they would only make a ten round mags for it-- Hunting and defense-- Yes I know maybe not the best for either but it would sute be just fine for both applications

They also had a .44 lever action that looked very similar (except for the lever)

From the author in YouTube comments:

I have tryed to make them cheap enough to sell but they are made from two differnt factory mags. Add the price of the 2 mags + the work required + postage + exchange rate, they would cost way to much!!! sorry


Bummer.
