    Ruger M77 (Tang safety) heavy barrel .308 Win

    Hi Guys

    For sale is a Ruger M77, the old tang safety model, with a heavy 24" barrel chambered in .308 win.

    Barrel is 19mm at the muzzle. Rifling looks very sharp.

    It is in great nick. The original blueing is in good order, the previous owner worked on the walnut stock which was has stripped bare, sanded, reshaped and completely sealed with 5 coats of Tru oil. Looks great.

    Comes with Ruger rings.

    Overall I'd say it hasn't done much work. I bought this on a whim on trademe, not realising that it was a heavy barrel model. I can't see myself using this so I want to free up some funds. I have not fired it, but have a target the previous owner shot at 100m using 4X scope, it measures 10mm.

    Would make a great entry level long range rifle, cheap target gun or a varmint rifle.

    I'll try and get some photos up.

    $750 ono.

    Cheers

    Pity this just came up - sounds like a good buy for someone with the 'necessaries' to get started.

    Some photo there now. Bolt gives good comparison of thickness of barrel. Stock looks really great, in very good condition. A bit of black has flacked off the alloy trigger gaurd and floor plate.

    Not selling scope, just rifle and rings.

    Would swap for a Ruger 77/22 or 77/22 mag or would consider other swaps.
