With that said. What a bunch great looking rifles. There's something to be said for the rimfires that we all grew up with. It comforting to see that many of us still hold dear the little, but very capable .22lr (ands it's hybrid rounds)
I have a 77/22 all weather model that I bought around 1996. I only shot it once shortly after buying it. Now that I am in my mid fourties I am realizing a renewed interest in it.
I hope to make some upgrades to her as income allows it. I'm hoping for a .920 barrel, volquartsen trigger and an aftermarket stock. Can't decide if I want a thumbhole or traditional stock. Not sure how a thumbhole stacks up on a bolt gun.
Anyway thanks for posting pictures of your 77/s. They all look great.
Thanks for the info. I did read a little where some apply pressure to the striker then pull the trigger. This is done until the trigger feels smooth. It was noted that some have fouled the trigger/striker using this method.
I will try and search for more info. This could save me a few dollars that I dont really have.
Thanks again for the info.

This is my first post. I came here in search of information regarding the Ruger model 77/22. Found everything I was looking for and more, this is a great site.

I have a 77/22 VBZ 22 rimfire rifle that I bought new in 2000. It has been used primarily for gopher shooting here in Montana. I have made a few accuracy enhancements to it and enjoy shooting it off the bench occasionally. Here are a few pictures of it at my home range.

In the photos Im shooting 5-shot groups at 100 yards. These are 100 yard groups shot under typical conditions at my range.



In this gun I use Eley Match ammunition for target shooting and Winchester Power Points for hunting and plinking. These groups were shot with Eley Match ammunition. Groups shot with Winchester Power Points are generally inch larger.

How does this compare with yours?

Sorry, I still have no idea about what all the fuss is about suppressing a .22 LR. With std. velocity ammo and ear protection I barely notice anything when I shoot my .22s. What's the big deal?

Well, there you have it...

It is safer for everyone's hearing, more polite, and although not an issue with 22LR, smoothes out the recoil impulse a bit.

ETA: if you're hunting, be it varmint or game, it can also help not to spook the other targets as well.

Don't knock it until you've tried it. If you already have, and it doesn't trip your trigger, just be happy that you've saved yourself hundreds of dollars and a very long wait on the BATFE.

I'd love to see them as prevalent (and unrestricted) here as they are in several countries accross the pond.

mOpar, yeah, I just can't see several hundred for the can, another $200 to the BATFE and the looong wait on the paperwork, all for such a mild shooting cartridge as the .22LR. I've got a couple of buddies with suppressed .22s , but they just don't do anything for me. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. BTW, I owned a big block MOPAR or two back in the day.

Yep that's the place. The best little shooting range in the rocky mountains.
