GENERAL INFORMATION AND MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS

The RUGER® DEERFIELD® CARBINE is a gas operated, rotary magazine fed, autoloading rifle. It is simple, reliable, and consists of a relatively few rugged components. The mechanism employs the Ruger fixed piston/moving cylinder gas system in conjunction with a simplified rotating bolt.

Music wire coil springs are used throughout the mechanism. The RUGER® DEERFIELD® CARBINE has a cross-button safety which is located in the foward portion of the trigger guard. The safety blocks the trigger and sear while permitting the slide to be cycled with the safety "ON". A bolt lock mechanism is provided for convenience in holding the bolt open for loading and inspection. The firing pin is retracted mechanically as the bolt starts to unlock and the rifle will fire only when the bolt is locked. The one-piece stock is American hardwood.

The RUGER® DEERFIELD® CARBINE has an internal buffer system that effectively absorbs the shock of the slide block striking the receiver in recoil. The bolt lock plunger is located at the rear of the slide handle, and when depressed, fits into a slot in the receiver holding the bolt open. The ejector is an integral part of the receiver and ejects the empty cartridges out to the side.

The patented Ruger integral scope mounts take all standard Ruger scope rings of various heights. A standard bead type front sight is used, with a flip-up type folding rear peep sight, adjustable for windage and elevation.
