A few weeks ago I picked up a Ruger 77/357, I've always had a sweet spot for pistol caliber carbines. Out of the box the rifle is finished very nicely, my only grip would be the trigger, it's a bit heavy. Ordered a Volquartsen sear and spring kit for $36 and installed it, now it's a very nice clean breaking trigger. Yesterday I got a chance to shoot it for the first time, to say the least I was impressed. I only shot it with the factory installed sights and it was pretty much dead on at 50yds. 25 rounds of 38's and 25 of 357's and it functions and feeds just fine. The mag was slightly sticky coming out but it's getting better as the rifle is still breaking in. It came with a nice set of ruger rings but I like shooting with iron sights so no scope is getting mounted just yet. I was averaging a 2" group at 50yds just off a front rest, my poor skills are what's lacking here as the rifle is a way better shooter than I am. All in all I'm very pleased with this rifle, she's a keeper.
