I saw this rifle the other day and wanted to get you people's opinions on it. Also...

Is it worth getting? ...at $400 used?

Thanks!

I wouldnt take $400.00 for mine but I doubt i would give $400.00 for another one.
Is it the tube fed or mag?
Mine is the tube fed and I think it is simply called a Ruger 44 Mag Carbine but I could be wrong.
It is good to every bit of 100yds and hits hard. Easy on recoil. My 10 year old son loves to shoot it. He will probably use the 44 instead of his 243 for deer this year. I have a little Tasco fixed 4X on top.

I have a Marlin 1894SS in 44 magnum and wouldn't give $400 to buy it again (and I have more than that in it).

My 1894 was purchased as a mate to my S&W 629, and though it was a great idea and is fun, I wouldn't do it again. I am just not a big fan of pistol cartridges in rifles (but that is just me).

The Deerfield is the clip fed version of this gun. I have one and it is a great gun and is very accurate with 240-gr. soft points. I wouldn't attempt to shoot a deer over 100 yards with it but with in that range it is deadly. If the gun is in good condition, ask if you can cycle some factory SP loads through it, it is a good price.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments.

I'll go and see if they will allow me to run some factory SP rounds through it and go from there!

I have the deerfield model and it's a great brush gun using 240 grain rounds. I have an adjustable 1.5-4 power scope on mine. It's built like a tank. It has alot less parts than the older Ruger .44 carbine. These parts are getting hard to find and Ruger has none.
