Re: Ruger M77 MKII threads

If your referring to the one on the hide, that is someone else. I have one in the works just have been slow to finish it with my current work load and none of it involving rugers at the moment.

Good luck with the project,

Jim,

Didn't mean any confusion but I can understand, I should have had a better transition between my reference to you and the one at the hide.

Anyways, I was referring to this post of yours ...

I can hardly bring myself to say it! Ruger?

Re: Ruger M77 MKII threads/Build

Anyhow, I should have the fixture for the lathe work on the action done this week and also the Picatinny scope base. After those are done i will make the picatinny base for the 2 swivel lugs on my stock so i can mount a atlas bipod on. The scope i will be placing on my rifle will be a Swarovski Z5 5-25x52 P BT.

No problem Ed, that was a good little read about rugers, lots of guys have had pretty good results with them. For a factory gun they are a little under-rated. But a few little trivial fixes does help them.

Re: Ruger M77 MKII threads/Build

I am just finishing up the truing of the receiver and the bolt. When I get this done I will post all pictures of the build. I ordered a blank barrel from Shilen (.750) at the muzzle and have made my own bipod, monopod, firing pin, and scope base (25 MOA) and scope rings out if Titanium. The rings I made are (3/4 width) and 1.250 to center of rings. I am putting a Swarovski 5x25x52mm scope on a h-s precision stock. the bipod and monopod will be an accu-shot. I will get plenty of pictures for you, and the only bad thing about tricking out a Ruger is the availability of fixtures and tooling.
