Question Ruger 44 Mag. Carbine info??

trying to find out as much as possible about my Carbine. I want to acurize it as much as possibly and make any other changes that might improve it.
It was make in 1972 near as I can tell. Also have a Deerfield carbine I would like to do the same thing to. Thanks for any help. I can not find a clear diagram of these rifles either. Rugers is a bad picture.

Are you having much problem with accuracy in the first place. My old tube fed Ruger .44 carbine was plenty accurate with PMC ammo, shot touching clover leafs at a 100 yards from a solid rest. I would first make sure that the screws are tightened correctly from the action to the stock, then try different loads to see how they shoot. These are not designed for long distance MOA shooting, so I suggest to keep the shots between 50 and 100 yards and see how it groups from a reliable bench.

That thing was never ment to be a target rifle, if it will shoot a 3inch group at a hundred yards, that should be good enough.

Numrich Gun Parts Corporation has a few schematics for the carbine.
www.about.com offers some info on disassembly,cleaning etc.
Just type in 44 carbine in the search window.

Common problem on some models, the tab that holds the lower receiver/trigger group housing to the upper receiver can break. Friend of mine had his rewelded twice and is getting rid of it at the next gun show.

Maybe a bedding job would prevent this from happening and improve accuracy as well?
