In celebrating the half-century anniversary mark of their M77 bolt-action rifle, Ruger has a limited edition model complete with engravings and a high-grade American Walnut stock.

The 50th Anniversary Hawkeye M77 is chambered in the always-popular .243 Winchester and is limited to 1,000 rifles. Engraved on both the bolt handle and floorplate, the 7-pound rifle comes standard with a 22-inch cold hammer-forged barrel and a satin blued finish.

The rifle is standard with integral scope mounts, machined directly on the solid-steel receiver, and ships with matching rings.

Common to the M77 line is a hinged solid-steel floorplate; a one-piece, stainless steel bolt with a non-rotating, Mauser-type controlled round feed extractor and a three-position safety.

The rifle ships with a red drawstring bag for included scope rings and studs for mounting sling swivels.

“M77 50 Years” is engraved on both the bolt handle…

and “M77 Ruger 50 Years 1968 2018” on the hinged floorplate

MSRP is $1,799.
