Small to Medium Game Fun in a Full-Size Rifle. In 1983, Ruger responded to the many shooters who desired a high-quality, adult-size rimfire rifle - one that was built to centerfire standards of strength, accuracy and aesthetics. Focused on building a rifle that was accurate, economical, and extremely handsome, Bill Ruger launched the family of bolt-action rifles using the rotary magazine.
Comparing favorably with custom-made firearms, the flat-shooting and superbly accurate 77/17 has established itself as the perfect rifle for small game hunters, ranchers, and long-range informal "plinkers." These rifles boast all of the technological advancements of the M77 Mark II rifle with the rugged and utterly dependable Ruger detachable rotary magazine.
