In celebrating the half-century anniversary mark of their M77 bolt-action rifle, Ruger has a limited edition model complete with engravings and a high-grade American Walnut stock.
The 50th Anniversary Hawkeye M77 is chambered in the always-popular .243 Winchester and is limited to 1,000 rifles. Engraved on both the bolt handle and floorplate, the 7-pound rifle comes standard with a 22-inch cold hammer-forged barrel and a satin blued finish.
Common to the M77 line is a hinged solid-steel floorplate; a one-piece, stainless steel bolt with a non-rotating, Mauser-type controlled round feed extractor and a three-position safety.
The rifle ships with a red drawstring bag for included scope rings and studs for mounting sling swivels.
MSRP is $1,799.
