That's a great looking rifle, and I can attest to the quality of Ruger's bolt action rifles.

I have been sold on the Ruger M 77 action since about 1977, it's gonna be hard for me to want anything else. I really like a wood stock.

Yeah a bolt action is a very traditional rifle and a wood stock is a traditional stock, I can amagine alot of people would agree with ya. There might be a market for this I think, hard telling... I mean the M77 action really works well I dunno why you'd change it cept for cost... I guess their trying to make a more cost affective rifle you won't get upset over if you drop it from a stand into mud or something. Retail is 449 so lord knows where that'll be in your shop I would guess under 400 though. I'd like to see them put a polymer stock on that gunsite scout rifle but that's not really a traditional blued steel and walnut gun to i mean it has peep sites and a flash hider with a detachable mag.

Scrabtree said $449. Before Christmas, I had my eye on a M-77 in .357 Magnum which it was short barreled, probably 16" and had a rotary magazine, I guessed for a kids rifle, but pricey around $750. Maybe make the Ruger American in .357 or .243 and that would work really well for a kids gun, and I would probably even spring for one in .357

hopefully they make it in different chamberings they should, right now it's just in 243 270 30-06 and 308, but yeah rugers site has it at 449 which like I said I expect it to be under 400 at the store.

Well, I have been thinking of a .308 for some time in bolt action. I guess the proof of the pudding will be in holding one and working the bolt. To me, a bolt must glide into place. Maybe someone will eventually come out with an aftermarket Walnut stock!

Yeah if this rifle takes off I'm sure you'll see some nice stocks for it. I'd like to see a version in .223 also, which I'm sure that's something we'll see also... if it works smooth and comes in at the price I'm guessing this might be a winner for ruger. I'm interested to see what else they come out with at Shot show... maybe an SR45? Maybe a 22 conversion kit for the SR series of pistols?

I like the look of this new Ruger rifle! I am in the market for a new .30-06 after trading my Savage Edge on a Beretta Neos. This one would be great!

The price is sure right I'm seeing them on GB going in the 300 dollar range.

Interesting! The action is quite different from the original M77 Action, which was derived from the Mauser 98, which I prefer. Looks very strong as all Rugers are, but the extractor is quite different fro mwhat I am used to dealing with in a Bolt Gun.

I really like the Remington 700 SPS Sniper in .308. Why I would need such a rifle would be a hard sell to the missus. I think if I were doing serious sniping I would want the rifle chambered in a flat tradjectory round like a .270 or.308 for bigger holes.
