Even I could probably manage that....
But- Ruger's selling the older wood/rubber Compact grips again separately, if you should need or want those.
That's good news as well.
So, uh, when's the SHOT show?
Might take that long for an announcement, might not.
Stronger than a Charter?
Is a horse stronger than a cat?
I'm not even a great .44 Special fan, but even I'd be interested.
The only gun I have in that caliber's a Ruger/Lypsey Flattop from when they first came out, so if a DA Ruger should happen along....
Must keep thinking, surely there is a way I can rationalize or justify this to myself.
Easy for me, because I never shoot cartridges except what matches the stamping on the barrel, e.g.. 44 Magnums never see 44 Special ammo. Aside from that, the Specials are typically on a smaller framed gun, and this Ruger is no exception. The GP is a 357 Magnum platform, I presume down to 5 shots in 44 Special.
I use a Lee Classic Cast Turret for my lower volume cartridges. You only need two dies and a powder measure activation plug to make the difference between 44 Special and 44 Magnum. The powder change is simply swapping a preset insert. Using my Hornady LnL for everything would drive me crazy or force me to forgo the case and bullet feeder on short runs. That wouldn't be that bad, but the turret is just so easy, and I am very proficient with it.
Just wait a bit & you can send him a Thank You email instead.
Okay Denis, I will start saving up for that "Great Come and Get It Day"!
I'll second that, Banny!!
So care to "speculate" on barrel length?
No real interest in a 5.5", MAYBE a little intrigue for a 4.2" belt gun. But in a 2.5-3.5" carry revolver, I'll conceal one daily during the winter.
If it does indeed have a 3" tube, I'll be getting one of these!!
PS: For those of you that like .44 shotshells, check out this new offering from CCI:
It's one of their shot cartridges but loaded with larger #4 shot. The .44 special just got even more versatile!!
