    Default 44 MAG carbine (rebarrel)

    Has anyone ever installed or removed the barrel on an original Ruger 44 mag carbine?

    Well, let me ask the question in a different manner, "Does the barrel screw in, is it pressed in, or maybe even pinned in"?

    Where are you going to get a replacement barrel? I need one.

    Have not worked on one, but was told by a friend that some form of Loctite was used on the threads.

    Screwed in and ported for the gas piston.A barrel blank is purchased profiled threaded chambered ported and fitted to the action.Whats wrong with what you have.

    I really had not given considerable thought as to where I would get a replacement barrel. Perhaps Gunparts Inc may have one.

    There is nothing wrong with the one I have. I thought I may get a barrel blank and make a match grade carbine. Never thought about it being ported.
