LR to HMR switch aint for the faint of heart. I've done three with unfinished Richard's stocks if you understand how the thing works and are willing to buy the bottom metal and magazine and run a dremel some, you can make 'em work. Ruger won't be any help. don't ask 'em. OMR is the man on this one. if I had a 77/22 today I'd go to Mach II, not HMR. much simpler and almost the same level of smack. probably better accuracy.
