The standard model featured a walnut stock and a barrel band similar to the Ruger 10/22 and the M1 Carbine , but using a solid top receiver. The front sight was a gold bead and the rear sight was a folding leaf-type. The receiver was drilled and tapped for scope mounts. The rifle was fed via a fixed 4-shot tubular magazine.
The chief complaint of the rifle was that the gas ports quickly fouled when using lead ammunitions. This became less of an issue as manufacturers of .44 Magnum ammunition offered jacketed rounds instead of traditional lead.
Ruger offered several variants including the RS model that had factory sling sling swivels and a rear peep sight close to the rear receiver lug. The International Model was similar, but lacked the rear peep sight and had a Mannlicher type stock.. The Sporter was the same, but made use of a Monte-Carlo style of stock. These three variants were dropped from production in 1971.In the final year of production, Ruger offered a “25th Anniversary Edition” that featured a Ruger medallion embedded in the stock.
