    Heard that ruger is going to stop production of their m77 rifles. The gun shop I was in said that he was told this from a ruger distributor. Anybody else heard of this?

    Ruger sent me the word... about the Model 77/xx guns, though, not the 77 MkII.

    ^^ So, they're killing the 77/22, 77/44, etc.? But leaving the high power centerfires alone?

    :D

    The RAR, when it is offered in the same 'calibers' as the 77-slash, can be considered the Economy Alternative. The market seems to demand that. Ruger has simply lopped off the Quality Alternative.

    Ruger hadn't actually produced the 77/22 Hornet for awhile. The 77/357 and 77/44 may have lost too much market to the relatively inexpensive lever-actions out there. I wanted the Hornet version but didn't have the $$ when one was available. I own a Browning B-92 in .44, so could resist the .44 Ruger. And... I am the happy owner of a 77/357; it's an excellent gun.

    So does this mean collectors will go after the 77/357 & others now that they are discontinued?
