    Does anyone out there in know of a quality Picatinny rail that can be mounted to the built-in integral mount on a Ruger M77? Is that even practical? I'm a Remington guy so the M77 is a little foreign to me.

    I don't believe it exists. If money is no object you ought to give Near Mfg a call, maybe he can make you a one of a kind. When I was looking everywhere for a picatinny rail for a Mark X he had one.

    I have often considered having the Ruger integral bases machined off a couple of my old M77s and putting on some low rings and bases. It always bothered me that Ruger's lowest rings were not low enough.

    Be sure to let us know if you find a system.

    I asked this question before on another site and and least one poster says the Farrell mount is for an older model M77 without the integral bases. You might want to confirm it with Farrell just in case. Leatherwood actually has one for the integral bases, but I have no idea what the quality is. It's on page 17 of their online catalog.

    FWIW, Burris makes a "Ruger to Weaver" two piece adapter. Then the Signature Zee rings will attach to the "new" bases. I am not 100% sure, but I believe you can get 20moa inserts for those rings. If I am remembering correctly, they come standard with 10moa capability.

    I know this isn't exactly what you were asking for, but it is an option if for some reason you cant find a one piece 1913 rail.?

    Sell the M77 and get a Vanguard/Howa, Rem or Savage :)

    :D I got a Savage. It's a beast. AND I got a 20 MOA base for the Ruger. But the Ruger just sits. I'm thinking about having it converted.

    <edit> I got this thread mixed up with a post I made about my 10-22 a while back. The M-77 I was asking about was for my son and my nephew. I'll have to pass this info on to them. That's a nice looking Ruger (post after this one)

    Farrel makes them to fit Ruger and Murphy Precision does also. Myself i will be making my own for my Ruger 7mm rem mag. Likes the titanium from precision but not the cost.

    Yep, I knew about them. However, it does not work for my .338 Win Mag in accordance with their caliber power factor formula(?). The last time I contacted them for the possibility of special order, I was told it is not available yet and once they figure out their challenge they will post the update.
