Default Ruger Discontinuing 77/22 Series

I received an e-mail from Ruger today saying the 77 series of rifles is being "discontinued temporarily". However, further down in the message the admonish that "...This may be your LAST CHANCE to get one of these great rifles!" I guess their profits are so bad,that they've decided to resort to scare tactics to sell their wares.

Ruger's profits as a company are doing very well. The 77/22 is a well-built model. I enjoy mine. Perhaps that specific rifle is hard to turn a profit due to low demand/lower production rates.

This is BAD NEWS for fans of the 77. This means only one thing. The Ruger bean counters have embarked on re-engineering another model. That will mean the new one will have more plastic and cheaper one size fits all cast parts. It will be assembled by monkeys who don't know a thing about guns and if it doesn't work they'll ship it anyway. If you want one look for one 5 or more years old to assure quality. They did the same thing with their Red Label shotgun. The "easier to manufacture" one had so many problems and returns it didn't last six months before they pulled it off the market.

Why not just get a CZ 452, 453, or 455. Almost half the price and shoots just as good and most of the time better than the Ruger 77/22.

I love my 77-22. It's the rifle I learned how to shoot with and my grandpa left it to me.

I have one in 22 mag. It shoots great. Regularly hits steel chickens at 220 yards. I like it and will keep it. I will also wait to see if it is replaced with a new line and then evaluate that line if it comes out. Ruger seems to be doing fine with the 10-22.

Man I seen this thing go for $700-$900 is this over price for just a 22 rifle. Don't get me wrong but it is very nice rifle but I would not buy it due to over pricing but I just stay with my m77 mk II 7mag.
