As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Our Assessment: Based on the Mauser 98, the Ruger M77 is a tough, reliable bolt action rifle with a five round internal magazine. This particular example is a Hawkeye model in Excellent condition, exhibiting only minor operational wear, more consistent with function-checks and clearing when handled than actual firing. The bore is bright, the rifling is sharp and the rifle comes in its original box with just about everything it did brand-new, including the factory hang-tag on the trigger guard. Chambered for .358 Winchester, this rifle is suitable for just about any North American game and should be a great hunting rifle for the lucky winner. With its stainless finish and synthetic stock, it will also be more resistant to the elements if the weather doesn’t agree with your hunting schedule. Please see our photos and good luck!
