I just bought a Ruger 44 Carbine and have been reading up on them. Most comments say just that they’re reliable and robust rifles. However, some comments say that they should be babied because they’re old and not being made.
So, what breaks? What parts should I get as spares against the future?
Other than the front tab on the trigger housing breaking I have never heard of other "common/famous failures". One snapped extractor is all I have ever witnessed first hand however. That gun had several thousand rounds of fullhouse 240's through it before it even hiccupped.
