Ruger Deerfield Carbine 99/44 (Discontinued) (Mfg./Date: 2000-2006)
The Deerfield Carbine or Model 99/44 is a .44 Magnum semi-automatic rifle produced by Sturm, Ruger & Co., introduced in 2000. The rifle is based on the rotating-bolt short-stroke gas-piston Mini-14 action, not the earlier Ruger Model 44 rifle first produced in 1961, which had been dropped from the Ruger lineup in 1985 due to production cost; the 1961-1962 Model 44 was marked as the Deerstalker. The rifle was reclassified as a carbine and renamed Deerfield due to the notable lawsuit brought by the Ithaca Gun Company. The Model 44 featured a solid-topped receiver, while the modern Deerfield has an open-top design more resembling the M1 Carbine, which is stronger and simpler. Unusually for a modern centerfire firearm, the Deerfield uses a rotary magazine similar to that used on Ruger's .22 LR 10/22 rifle.
