The 44 Hunter, 44 Bisley, and 22 Convertable hunters are still being made as I have seen each with the new Newport address on them. The 41 and 45s were always limited item guns and the 17s have been discontinued at least for now.

I don't think these are going anywhere but hey stranger things happen and Ruger doesn't share sales info so we don't know just how many sell. I know I have somwhere around 15 Single Action Hunters however :oops:



QB.....

actually bro, i called ruger this morning on a set of grips, and spoke to a customer service lady who said that only a few of the 44s are being made, and they have discontinued production on the convertible single six hunter for now, maybe perm....now, i dont know that for the gospel (as even though they have great customer service, i have on occasion gotten wrong info from there phone people) but as scarce as they are getting, it wouldnt suprise me much. the lady told me that they havent ever been a big seller.

i love my 22 convertible hunter. found out the hard way that they dont like that cruddy green box worthless POS remington 22 mag, BUT when i switched brands mine shoots like a dream. the winchester black box supreme 30gr shoots 1 hole groups all day. the tollerances and cylinder/barrel gap on it is so tight i can sit out in my front yard in thbe middle of town and shoot CB longs thru it all day and it isnt even as loud as my sons pellet rifle!

I just received a NIB .44mag SBH Hunter from a gunbroker auction.
SN 88-32xxx
Date on fired case envelope is 6/12/2009.
I am assuming that they are fired/dated when made, but who knows for sure.

Nice gun, shoots well and has no issues that I can see.
Fitted and finished as well as any new model Ruger single-action that I have seen or owned.
BTW, warning on side of bbl and no eagle on rear sight.

Jack

If you can check, does this have the Southport Conn or Newport NH roll-mark on the barrel? I can't afford to buy right now but if it has a Newport address please send me a phone number for the dealer and I may try to max out a credit card :oops:
