Do Ruger pistol rings fit a 77/22 ??



Log in to see fewer ads
A first year production rifle found me, but I need rings for it. Preferably some as high as possible. Do I need to look for rings specifically for the 77/22 or will pistol rings work. Any options besides Ruger rings??

You need two identical rings - same height - for the 77/22. Usually sets are marked for Ruger 77/22 and Ruger No. 1 rifles, although they can fit other Ruger firearms. Ring sets with two unequal height rings will not work. Ruger now sells rings individually, they have charts on ShopRuger for the correct rings for each model firearm. In addition to Ruger, Leupold and Warne offer rings for the Ruger mount, and there may be other manufacturers with rings that fit the Ruger mounting system.

Thank you for the information. Good to know there are a few sources.

The 77/22 uses a pair of same-height rings while the M77 centerfire bolt gun uses two of different heights.
So don't order a pair unless they are listed for the 77/22.

Some Ruger pistol rings will work.

A couple other companies make rings that will fit. The Leupolds cost more than the Rugers, the Redfields only come in a set for M77s (AFAIK). There are some cheap aluminum rings that look horrible. Baraska? I'm not sure.
Midway carries most of what is available.

You can do some research at the Ruger site to determine which height you need.
The best price for the real Ruger rings is at Natchez; some at $26 each are a steal.

And for an old 77/22 you want the gloss rings.
I just noticed these, looks like a good set for cheap: https://www.natchezss.com/weaver-gra...igh-matte.html
The Weaver rings only have two screws but on a .22 that might not matter. Shame they are "matte" instead of gloss.

Great information and links. Looks like the Weaver highs are too good to pass up even being matte. They will let me shoot the rifle and if it's accurate enough,I can look for some gloss highs later. I appreciate your efforts.

The Mini 14 Ranch Rifle is the other Ruger rifle that uses same height rings.

Nice looking set-up. Rings as high as your would be perfect for the offhand shooting I like to do.

You're welcome Hank. I have quite a few Ruger rifles and had to figure out their rings. I have a 1985 M77/22 also.

Yeah, I really like the Weaver GS rings and have them on a few of my rifles. Heavy steel, well made, the weaver mount versions are only around $22 at Malwart.

Toomany, I read somewhere that they will continue manufacturing the Weaver mounts and rings, that side of the business is profitable and in demand. I hope so, but wish they'd continue the GS scopes too.
