Called ruger and the scout bottom metal is only $5. I want to go that route but want to make sure it'll work. They wouldn't give me any info on it. They said they don't recommend any mods to their rifles. Anyone know if the scout bottom metal with work with my m77 mark 2 action. It's the short action and I'm getting a Mcmillian stock made. Thanks
Chad, my son bought a model 77 that was quite beat up about the stock and bottom metal scratched. This rifle had what looked like black paint from the factory on the trigger guard and floor plate. He sanded all the paint off to bare aluminum and I polished it on the buffing wheel. It looks along with the refinished stock.
