Hi sendaichoro.....welcome to TFF.
OK.....I found this info at http://oldguns.net/q&a7_96.htm
Maker Model Caliber Barrel Length Finish Serial Number
Universal Unknown 44 mag. 18 inch Blue None
Looks like M-1 carbine, but is a pump action. Also has a plastic ten round clip Made somewhere in N.Y. state.
What is this gun? Who made it? What is it worth? Any other info appreciated!!
Your Universal .44 magnum pump is the model sold in the 1960s as the "Vulcan 440". It was made by Universal Firearms Corporation of Hialeah, Florida. They are best known for their copies of the .30 M1 Carbine, and variations with different stocks and sights, and the short "Enforcer" pistol version. Universal operated from the late 1950s (it was the successor to Bullseye) until 1983 when they were taken over by Iver Johnson. Larry Ruth's definitive books on the M1 Carbine have an excellent section on Universal in War Baby Volume II, pages 756-764. He only lists the Vulcan 440 as being made in the 1960s, while most other Universal items seemed to enjoy longer lives, so I suspect that total numbers made were rather small. John, I wouldn't know much about the value of this, but Universal products, although reportedly good shooters, don't seem to have much collector interest. First, find someone who wants a pump .44 mag, then you can see how much it is worth!... John
And, there's some more info here: http://www.gunsandammomag.com/values/values0405/
Q: Please help me figure out what this rifle is. It appears to have no serial number, but it does have a date of 1957 and was made by Universal Arms in Florida. It is stamped "Vulcan 440." It is a .44 Magnum pump with an 18-inch barrel. I would appreciate any information on it. --D.B., via e-mail
A: The carbine you mentioned was manufactured by Universal Firearms, which was established in 1962 after previously being a division of Iver Johnson's Arms Inc. The company's headquarters were located in Hialeah, Florida, and even though they were mostly importers, some guns were manufactured in Jacksonville, Arkansas. "Vulcan 440" is the model number, and 1957 probably refers to the patent date. Current value range would be $175 to $325 depending on condition.
