My M77 is 30+ years old and it didn't come with sights and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's a .270 Win. and that is a round meant for a scope and a scope it has. Instead of iron sights my back up has always been an extra scope. I keep a 3x9 on it usually but I have a fixed 4 for it also. Each scope has it's own set of rings an I can swap out scopes with no change in zero. Besides that, I think they look 'prettier' without sightsquote:Originally posted by Jody Johnson
And, at least for me...a complaint about "modern" 77's...I wish Ruger would've continued to put "iron" sights on them. I've just never been comfortable w/o iron sights...at least as a backup system, if nothing else!
Same here but in 7mm Rem Mag with the synthetic stock. Very nice crafted rifle. I love to look at her all day, her name is Maggie.quote:Originally posted by JB
I got a M77 All Weather 30-06 with the ol skelital stock I just love the stainless steal.
