    Default Tang Safety Ruger M-77 prices ?

    What is the current average price on a blued, wood stocked, older, tang safety Ruger M77 in 30-06,, About 85% ?????

    Here in Alaska... prices elsewhere are often much different than here.



    I have only bought two Ruger long guns over the past 40 years. A Red Label 12 gauge that I detested and a M77MKII that eventually turned out alright after some work. Thus my lack of Ruger knowlege...

    Mostly around $375-$450.

    I know that is a wide range but I was looking around quite a bit a couple months ago and that is what I was seeing.

    Default Ruger

    For a blued/wood tang safety model without a scope, even with sights, I'd max out around $365 with standard calibers, 30-06 or less. For .300 Win mag and and .338 I'd go maybe $400.

    IMHO, the action/receiver itself is worht $300 plus. A good platform for a build.

    Default wholesale/retail?

    The buy price for a dealer sounds about right, but the resell price is pretty low.

    before Down Under went "down" I handled a 7 mm Mag Tanged Ruger for 180.00 or something like that-action sure was smooth! Wear though was like around 50%-I thought a rebuild at the time and didn't and am sorry I did not pick it up.

    Where do you shop at?

    I have not seen a retail used ruger for under $349 for many years.

    Since your not telling that tells me those deals are not very common.

    Just as I have noticed.

    I often wondered why I didn't hear about more people interested in the older tang safety Rugers. Glad to see the interest since I think they were a great product. I bought my 30-06 back in 79', and I still have it because I like it so much. I don't use it as much right now because I find myself carrying my 338 more, but she's tuned up and ready to throw some 180gr N.P. down range very accurately. No thoughts of ever getting rid of her either.

    Can't help you on price, but two thumbs up on your search for this type of rig.

    I'm no longer at Great Northern guns, but the blued/wood tang model 77s we'd put on the rack in the common calibers would sell for $349.00 to about $375.00 depending on condition, sights and such. The newer MkIIs had more consistent accuracy because of the barrels. The Hawkeyes are even better with the new trigger.

    I dont need any more guns right now.

    My last used gun purchase was a mod 70 push feed Ranger 30/06 that I got for 289.

    I picked it up for $300 including the taxes. (7.5% around here)

    Now I need a set of Blued Ruger Rings. I have a 3 x 9 blued older Burris to put on there.

    Plus I need to cut the stock just a touch and put on a new recoil pad. My duaghters arms are not as long as whomever the stocks were original made to fit.

    Should have said we are talking including rings. Ruger rings are $50+. Still a good deal from what I have seen myself.

    I sold one with rings and a cheap Bushnell scope for $375 a while back. It showed it's field use and a few scars from being banged around in a boat.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again
