    Anyone installed a detachable magazine in a factory Ruger M77 stock? I have a M77 300 win mag. If so what materials did you use, etc.
    Thanks,

    I've got a Ruger M77 .308 Win. I asked Ruger about purchasing the box magazine parts kit that they install in the Gunsite Scout Rifle. The parts are not for sale. They suggested Brownell's or MIdway for aftermarket parts. Have not found any yet but still looking. I think a ten round magazine would be great for an M77.

    Check out Sharpshooter.com. They have a universal detachable magazine kit and it's reasonably priced. I've been looking for this and found the info on LRH.

    i also called ruger and the woman i spoke with went and asked someone else if the gunsite gear would work and was told no. i do not understand how though. p.s. the shaprshooter link didn't work. it wasn't a link just underlined text but i tried typing in the address and it took me to hasbro toys website.

    I know this is a really old thread but PTG is making one now. Stealth version. I'm pumped about it.

    Who is PTG? I have a m77 in 308 and it needs some loving.

    PTG stands for pacific tool and gage. Don't think that the BDM is on their site for the m77 but it is for the other rifles so you can see what it looks like. Just call to order.
