Our Assessment: The Ruger 77/22 is a successful bolt-action rimfire rifle chambered for the .22 Long Rifle, .22 WMR, or .22 Hornet and is the basis for the 77/17 platform. The 77/17 uses the same design and has a removable rotary magazine which allows the magazine to fit flush with the bottom of the stock. The 77/22 was introduced in 1983 and was based on the centerfire Model 77 Mark II. The Ruger 77/17 came out in 2002 and uses the same rotary magazine design with a short bolt stroke and three-position safety but is chambered in .17 HMR, .17 Mach 2, .17 Winchester Super Magnum, and .17 Hornet as this one is. Unlike other models, the 77/17 does not have iron sights, provision is only made for mounting a scope. This one was made in 2013 and looks like it hardly ever left the box. The rifle comes with a 6 round rotary magazine and scope rings to get you started. This a nice “used” bolt action addition to the collection. Please see our pictures and good luck!
