Now, I'm in the process of converting it from .22 lr to .22 mag. I've got everything but the barrel and magazine. I'm trying to get by as inexpensively as possible and still have a decent shooter, so I'm waiting on getting a barrel until I can find a deal. I'll probably go with a take-off factory barrel.
Anyway, just thought the Ruger rifle section needed something about a 77/22.

I just like semi-autos so much better... yes, I know I'm a bit "off".

Well, I have been wanting to try one of these for years. Finally picked one up today. I hope it is a shooter.
Sharp rifle, what calibur do you have it in ?

I decided to mount the T-36 on it for testing. We'll see how she shoots tomorrow.

I had a 22Mag Ruger just exactly like that. It would shoot 5 shot groups around .5ctc most of the time at 50yds.
It was a very good rifle.
I wished I still had it.

I don't own a 77/22, only a 10/22

Glad to say, "it shoots"!
I ran the Rapid Fire Rimfire Match this morning and then we had a membership renewal session at 1:00 PM. So, I only had about half an hour to test the new Ruger. The upper left hand group was the last one I tried and it was fired with SK Subsonic HPs. It measures .23" ctc.

That first group is mind boggling to me for a box stock factory Ruger.
That's what I call getting the most from the gun in my opinion.
You are a very good shooter.
No doubt in my mind.

Now, glass-bedding a 77/22 is a little different from the centerfire rifles I'd done before. What to consider the 'recoil lug' for example. I bedded that thing about four times, changing this and that. Finally I got it to shoot into a half inch with the right ammo, of which I promptly bought a couple of bricks.
But the most interesting lesson from the whole exercise was that these rifles are very sensitive to stock-screw tension. Too much or too little, they shoot poorly.
A most handsome rifle. They have great lines. I put in a Dayton-Traister adjustable trigger after a few years, and I'm happy with it.

Now, if only they'd offer it black phosphate coated, with a 16 inch barrel, and synthetic side folding stock!

Can't wait to see how it does on paper next weekend.
The rifle simply shot too well to deserve that heavy a pull.

They're Great rifles, at least mine is. I'd never convert mine to the magnum cartridge though. I could see buying another already chambered for it.
just searching around and found this old thread. LOL ~ Never say Never
