Value of 77/22 Boat Paddle



Log in to see fewer ads
Looking for opinions on value of a 98% condition Ruger 77/22, blued, with a boat paddle stock with the green inserts, and a cheap Simmons scope.

I know I can check completed auctions but this combo is somewhat rare.

I think you did real well.

Since they donít make 77/22s anymore, Iím wondering if they are going to go up in value.

Well I hope so! But I think itís more like they donít make Oldsmobile anymore. Hereís one I got in trade for a pre 64 win 93 30/30

People poopoo these rifles, for a variety of reasons, but I donít have any issues with mine. No theyíre not CZ accurate, but I liked Oldsmobile too!

I bought the boat paddle 77/22. I got it for $350 OTD. I think I did real good. After cleaning it, I would rate it at 98%+. I’m not sure it’s been fired since leaving the factory. I can tell the action has been cycled, but the mag doesn’t look used, nor does the bolt face. I may put a new Weaver RV-9 on it since it is too good for a Simmons scope. I don’t think I’m going to shoot it. I have a second year, walnut stocked 77/22 that I shoot.

Why scope it if your not gonna shoot it? And yes $350 is a good price. I shot my 77/17 today, and itís a gas! That zytel stock is rigid and tight, and that 17hnr is a fun round to shoot.. it really moves fast compared to a 22, like a 223 but no noise and no muzzel blast

Shoot it, that way if you ever sell it you might be able to say, itís a fine shooter, and a lot of fun.

I put a new RV-9 on it because it was relatively cheap and the rifle didnít come with any sights. It sure looks good now.

What material was used for the last composite stock for the 77/22? Not the boat paddle.

I bought a boat paddle with stainless action and barrel in 1985, thought the boat paddle was cool, over the years I tired of it and almost all the other synthetic stocks, especially trying to shoot it with a sling which is basically impossible if you use any real pressure on the sling, it would throw bullets everywhere, I order a walnut stock and parts from ruger to replace it years ago and finally sold the stock, I had guys fighting for the stock, I recently tried to sell the rifle with the (very nice wood) walnut stock and mentioned it was a boat paddle conversion, - holy cow, all anybody wanted was the original boat paddle stock , who knew they would be become collectible, AMAZING, the demand is greater than the supply, prices are going up all the time on these stocks, the 77 rimfires were built like centerfire rifles, the overall fit an finish was equal to or greater than most other brands available at that price, the accuracy was average across the board but of course now the only guns anyone will buy must shoot under a M.O.A. Glad I wasn't into that when I was younger because I have owned a bunch of these Ruger's and have enjoyed all of them, been selling off my collection since I have gotten too old to care for all of them,

Well they say beauty is in the ye of the beholder and probably never truer in this instance,definitely a love it or hate it when it comes to the Ruger Model 77 boat paddles', Ruger introduced the Zytel synthetic stock I believe in the 80's, it was a pretty outrageous decision as synthetic stocks were not in vogue at the time, this stock had replaceable grip inserts and was considered very cutting edge, the look was very unique and became affectionately or derisively known as the boat paddle.

You done good! I have a walnut stocked 77/22, but would love to find a mini-me like yours to go with my 77 Mk II .243...
