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.

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)

That's exactly what I did on my M77 MKII ...

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.
