My dealer got the first one in from his distributor. He showed it to me yesterday and I foolishly walked out without it. Quoted me a price of only $1,000 which I thought was great.
Did not sleep last night especially after seeing the crooks on GunBroker and other sites for prices from $1,250 to $1,500.
What really kept me awake was the vision of this unbelievable beautiful stock. I did not see even one photo on line featuring a stock this nice. Ruger probably did not dare put a photo of this stock on their ad page for fear that everybody would want one.
Just tried some A-Zoom snap caps which loaded and fed like silk. Was thinking of maybe not shooting this but I am sure that feeling will go away.
Let me know what you think.
Beautiful wood on your new rifle!
You would often see wood like that on Red Labels, #1s and M77s.
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act
Looks great, enjoy shooting it.

Holy shit! Yes, that is pretty much the bargain of the year, what a beauty!!
You won the wood lottery with that one!
I can’t believe you walked out on that. Lol. Beautiful wood on that. I’m glad Ruger is doing these again. They look nice.
Congrats on your new rifle, I like it!
.44 mag is a great choice for a lever gun, in my opinion.
from the abyss
As has been said, that's some beautiful lumber. I've got a older Marlin in 44mag that I keep in my truck. It's a heck of a shooter. Hot loads can smart a little, but I load them down a bit and it's just plain fun to shoot. Looks like your's has a butt pad and that should help with those hot ones. Enjoy! You'll like it.
Order up some Skinner sights for it. You won't be sorry.

That is much better than average walnut. I have two Marlins from the pre-Remington days, and they are good riles, but the wood is pretty plain.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
That wood is beautiful!

Mistake not my current state of joshing gentle peevishness for the awesome and terrible majesty of the towering seas of ire that are themselves the milquetoast shallows fringing my vast oceans of wrath.

Yep, that's No. 1 grade walnut there. Nice job.
I'm gonna vote for the funniest frog with the loudest croak on the highest log.
If you go peep sights, which you should, look at Ranger Point Precision. I have those and a set of Skinners. I think the RPP are the better of the two.
For me both practically and from a classic vintage look standpoint a classic folding tang sight is the way to go
Wow that’s Nice wood !
I have an older marlin 44 rifle. I hope Ruger makes a pistol gripped 16 inch version

Wow. That's the nicest factory stock I've seen in decades.
I’ve been thinking about one of those and would have bought that for the wood alone. Well done!
Great decision to get it. Beautiful.
