    who else loves their ruger, any type? My first is a 2004 m77 mkII in .30-06 and Though its almost new, I use my guns. At the range as often as possible and hunting hard. So who owns? who loves? who doesn't? and why for either?

    I'll bite. I've got a M77 MkII in .308 with a Hogue stock and aperture sights. Love it. Stainless GP100 .357mag with 4" barrel. Will name my firstborn child after it. Stainless Single Six with 7 1/2" barrel. Will name my secondborn child after it. Will own a stainless Vaquero in .357mag before too long. Might trade in an organ for it or something. That's why we've got 2 kidneys, right?

    Re: re: Ruger Love?

    I used to have a 10/22 that had a lot of Volquartsen parts on it. Sucker drove tacks like no tomorrow. I should never have gotten rid of it, but I was having some jamming problems and sold it. I miss it now. I WON'T be trading my CZ 452 in for it, though.

    ....and no fair. I want a #1. One day in the future, when I have a real job and am to that point on my list of "must haves", I will be getting a #1 in 22-250 or something similar, heavy barrel, and I'm gonna put a really nice scope on it. That's a long way down the road, though :(

    One of my favorite all time safari rifles was my Ruger 77 RSM in 416 Rigby. I got rid of that abomonation Ruger calls a trigger and replaced it with a Timney, however. My Ruger MKII SS in 338 has gone with me from Africa to Alaska...another Timney trigger... I bought my son a first generation 77 in 257 Roberts the first year of production in that caliber, and we had it re-chambered to 257 Ackley. It is one of the finest rifles I've ever shot...at any price! :D 8)

    I've never owned a Ruger, always thought of them like a hammer- utilitarian but without fine craftsmanship. I've been looking for a GOOD 22lr bolt action to replace my 572 pump jam-master, so checked out Remmy 504, Kimber 82, Marlin. Of them all, the Kimber was probably the best, but too much $$$ for what I thought was there. Biggest disappointment was the Remmy, looked like it was inletted with a chainsaw, and just seemed sloppily fitted. What surprised me was the Ruger 77/22 laminated with stainless heavy barrel, nice trigger and really good fit and finish. This I belive is a quality firearm and the best value for the money. I think there will be one in my gun cabinet before the fall.
