Default Accuracy of a ruger mk77

Was wondering if anyone has had or has a ruger mk77 with a mannlicher stock. What kind of accuracy are you getting out of it? Are they worth the 1000 bucks people are asking for them?

I have two of them. The one in 22-250 will shoot 55grn boat tails doing 1" groups all day. The other in 308 shoot's 1 1/2" groups pretty regular with most anything I put in it. Both have Timney triggers that helped quite a bit

I believe the original post was edited after my post. IF not then I was wrong and yes I am old.

I did have a m77 in 7mm R.E.M. Mag not a mannlicher though.
Accuracy was excellent, I don't know how the stock would affect the accuracy.

They seem to be going anywhere between $800.00 to $1150.00, depending on caliber and whatnot. I have one, actually son has it now, in .308. Pretty accurate[1.5'']@100 yards. Handy, light and comfortable to shoot. Damn good rifle when you can find them. I think you'd like it.

I have a Mannlicher stocked Model 77 in .30-06. Honestly, I havenít done much shooting with it beyond some testing with cast bullet loads, but when I did shoot it, there didnít seem to be any problems with accuracy or groups shifting around.

Thereís one thing I can tell you for sure, though, itís one of the most beautiful rifles I own. Itís such a classic compact design that Iíd buy another in a heartbeat. I bought mine about a year ago from a Turnerís consignment sale. It was in very gently used condition and I think I paid around $550 (before tax and DROS).

I see these come up for sale every once in a while on Calguns and, strangely, they languish for weeks. I donít understand it.

Thanks y’all for the comments. I ordered one from MA should get here tomorrow. I hope it shoots well and if it doesn’t I’ve done some reading about taking the stock off and filing down where the wood meets the barrel. I’m a little hesitant to take the barrel cap off, reason being it might be a real pain. Btw I got a 308 with the tang safety. I probably over paid for it but that’s how it goes, ended up with 650 in it.

Even if it doesn't shoot, they are nice to look at.

Congratulations, I really enjoy both of mine (308/22-250). Both tang safety with red pad,I just put a decelerator pad on the 308. Removing the barrel cap is really easy. Unscrew a small wood screw on the bottom of the cap and it will wiggle and slide off the muzzle. Use a gunsmith screwdriver because a regular slotted screwdriver will push up a burr. I never felt the need to free float the barrel since the end cap kind of rests on the barrel anyway. Also look up the torque spec's and action bolt tightening sequence for better accuracy. A Timney trigger was the best thing I did to mine. If your able to take the stock off and on the trigger replacement is also easy to do.

The M77 is great rifle. I have the M77 MK-II Version in 7mm mag. To bad they don't make bolt action like how they used to now

Default Ruger M77

Mannlicher is one of the best looking rifles around. Cant post as to accuracy, but I'd be willing to bet Ruger knows / knew what they were doing when they conceived them. Ruger makes good firearms and are always a good choice.

What do y’all know about the front action screw? I’ve read in a few places that it has to be torqued especially if you are having accuracy problems. Also is the bolt for y’all m77 super easy to move? I’ve never owned a bolt action I grew up on single shots and lever actions so my experience with bolt actions is minimal. Sorry for all the questions fellas!

I torque my action bolts front first to 50inch pounds then rear 35inch pounds and the middle screw just a 1/4 turn after the screw makes contact with the stock. Some people recommend going tighter on the front screw but i'm kind of afraid. My bolts slide very very easy in the gun. if not check for things like the rear scope ring screws being to long.

The Mannlicher stock can sometimes hurt accuracy because of the end cap restraining the barrels natural vibration pattern.

M77 is a great gun... Had one in 7mm very accurate.

True but theses were never meant to be bench rest guns. Mine have displayed excellent hunting accuracy with factory ammo and better with some handloads. With Ruger's the end cap is attached to the wood and not the barrel. The opening the barrel slides through can be opened up if desired.
