    We were commenting at the last gunshow in Albany about never seeing any Ruger 44mag. Carbines for sale in quite awhile........All of a sudden they are showing up in force??
    Just a comment.......

    I know, all the cool stuff pops up when I am broke :(

    How many rounds does the little rotary mag hold on those? Wonder if anyone ever made a drum mag for em.....lol.

    Funny how that works. I had not seen a Remington nylon 66 for sale for a
    while---last Albany show I stopped counting at 15! Winchester 97's, Smith
    and Wesson 19's, High Standard 22's-----they all seem to run in cycles.
    You will see few or none for months, then hit a show where they are EVERYWHERE.

    The Ruger semi-auto .44 mag carbine is a tube mag. I'm thinking they hold 4 rounds, not sure.
    The Ruger lever action .44 has the rotary mag.

    I believe The Deerstalker was a four shot capacity tubefed and The Deerslayer had a rotary magazine like the Ranch rifle.
    I also noticed the nylon Remingtons were well represented at The Albany Show.......dang near bought one but couldn't make up my mind. A couple were pretty reasonably priced too.
    Maybe the economy is bringing some of these oldies out of the closet.
