The Ruger M77 is a classic design that has a cold hammer forged barrel and a rugged bolt lock up. The Colt hammer forged barrel will provide longevity with accuracy and the 90 degree bolt lock up helps not only with safety, but it increases accuracy as well. The wood stock has deep checkering and low shine finish. The blueing shows some signs of use with marks scattered throughout the barrel and receiver. It is in overall condition and would make a great deer rifle coming with a Nikon 3-9 already installed.
