Factory new (new old stock without Box, still has original Tag on gun). Ruger M77 MK II. .350 Rem Mag caliber. 22″ barrel. Blued finish. Nicely figured checkered walnut stock with satin finish. Claw extractor on bolt. Three-position safety.
Never fired. Still has original tag on the gun itself, but no box. Really rare gun with the 350 REM Mag in this Ruger M77 Mark II platform.
The M77 Mk. II action is a square bridge, Mauser pattern action with a flat bottom, integral recoil lug, and a large ejection port. It has two large locking lugs, a full length extractor that takes a huge bite on the case rim for positive extraction, and a fixed blade ejector. Open the bolt swiftly and the case is thrown well clear; open it slowly and the case can be removed by hand, a feature appreciated by reloaders. This is what is called a controlled feed action, and it feeds cartridges and extracts spent brass with great reliability. It is also fast and easy to load.
Unlike most controlled feed actions, the M77 extractor will ride over the rim of a cartridge placed directly into the chamber. This means that the Ruger M77 Mark II action can be single loaded in the field when one more shot is a crucial necessity and there is not time to load the magazine.
The convenient Mauser type bolt release is located at the left rear of the action, and the safety is located at the right rear. The latter is a Winchester Model 70 type three-position design. “Fire” is fully forward, “safe” with the bolt unlocked to facilitate unloading is the middle position, and “safe” with the bolt locked closed for carry in the field is the full rearward position. The trigger guard and hinged magazine floorplate are made of steel.
All Ruger Model 77 Mark II rifles are now supplied with accurate, hammer forged barrels. The barreled action is finished in a polished blue. The strong, one-piece bolt, including the smooth bolt knob, is left in the white. The stock wears a satin finish. No iron sights are supplied on the M77R, but the receiver rings are machined to accept Ruger scope mounting rings, which are supplied with the rifle. This is the best, most secure, scope mounting system with which I am familiar, and Ruger deserves credit for its design and implementation.
The M77R Mark II comes with a graceful black walnut stock in the modern classic style. It features a (fluted) straight comb, gently curved pistol grip with grip cap, (rather skimpy) cut checkering panels, black rubber butt pad, rounded forearm contour designed to fit the human hand rather than a bench rest, and quick detachable sling swivel bases. This is perhaps the most classic of the current “modern classic” style factory stocks.
Another feature unique of the Ruger M77 design is the angled front bedding bolt that holds the barreled action securely in the stock. This patented system pulls the barreled action downward and rearward into the stock inletting. The result is a barreled action solidly bedded in its stock.
As you can see from this description, the M77 Mark II incorporates almost every feature desired in an optimum bolt action hunting rifle.
