I have a ruger m77 in 30.06 and I love this gun. I want to do some long range shooting with it in this caliber but I am trying to find a place to get a custom flutted barrel or even just a heavy barrel. Does anyone have any ideas where I can get one? Please help

    Did Ruger ever make the M77 in .404 Jeffrey? Saw this advertised in an old Gun Digest. I know they produced the No.1 in this caliber on a limited basis. Thanks for any help.

    Whats the approximate value on this gun???

    I recently aquired a Ruger M77 in 30/06, serial number 72-31XXX. The gun is in excellent condition, I'd say 90-95%. Did a serial number look-up and from what I can tell the gun was manafactured in 1976.

    Also has small engraving on barrel saying "Made in the 200th year of AMERICAN LIBERTY". That really helped solve the date of manafacture for sure.[;)]

    A few years back,I acquired a Ruger M77R-DZ.I was told by the seller that it was a special order because I questioned the Lamenated stock.I guess my question is "what does the "DZ" mean?
