Small to Medium Game Fun in a Full-Size Rifle. In 1983, RugerÂ® responded to the many shooters who desired a high-quality, adult-size 22 rimfire rifle - one that was built to centerfire standards of strength, accuracy and aesthetics. Focused on building a rifle that was accurate, economical, and extremely handsome, Bill Ruger launched the family of bolt-action rifles using the rotary magazine.
Comparing favorably with custom-made firearms, the innovative 77/22Â® (available in 22 LR, 22 Mag. or 22 Hornet), the powerful 77/357â„¢, 77/44Â® and the flat-shooting and superbly accurate 77/17Â® have all established themselves as the perfect rifle for small game hunters, ranchers, and long-range informal "plinkers." Offered in a variety of calibers and configurations, these rifles boast all of the technological advancements of the M77Â® Mark II rifle with the rugged and utterly dependable Ruger detachable rotary magazine.
