M77 Hawkeye African

The Ruger M77 Hawkeye African is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in .300 Win. Mag., .338 Win. Mag. and .375 Ruger. The African is one of 14 models in the Hawkeye series and it is one of the larger in the series with a 23″ barrel, which makes it 43.75″ overall.

Features include a walnut stock with a checkered grip and fore-end. What makes it different than other Hawkeye models is it has an adjustable rear sight and a bead front sight. Otherwise it has common features for the series such as a solid steel bolt that uses a Mauser-type round feed extractor, which chambers rounds smoothly and ejects them effortlessly. The African has a steel floor plate that opens for easy loading. The floor plate also fits flush with the stock. The African has a 3-position safety that allows shooters to open the bolt and load the rifle with the safety engaged. And, it also has a rubber recoil pad.

The African is also available in a left-handed model. Ruger recommends the Hawkeye African for large predatory game, like what’s found in the African wild.
