I bought a 77/22 stainless w/boat paddle stock in .22WMR back in the early 90s. It was an OK shooter, but I wasn't totally happy with it. Over the years, it got a Lilja barrel, a Jard trigger, sent it to Randy to get the slop out of the bolt, and did a Richards Microfit laminated stock for it (never much cared for the boatpaddle). Even bought special dyes (Cooper CCM), pulled the crap bullets from the cases and substituted 40 gr. V-Max and Ballistic-Tip bullets. I finally got it so that it would pretty consistently shoot groups under 1" at 100 yards. It was a long haul, pretty expensive, but I finally got it where I wanted it. I ended up selling it. Buying a .22 Hornet would have been a lot easier.

I have a first year standard model, Vorquartsen sear, shimmed stock and I replaced the barrel with a Shilen sporter contour model. I wish I had a full stock model.. In either form, sporter or full stock they are one of the trimmest looking bolt action rifles I have seen.

My Ruger 77/22 22lr has a Shilen SS Varmint Barrel, and a VQ Sear. It's a keeper for sure.

I always liked the look of the 77/22 but they were expensive compared to a CZ for example. But I think the popularity of this kind of rifle is on the decline in general. At my range anything that looks like a military style rifle gets more attention, particularly among young shooters. Changing tastes I guess. At least that's my experience.

No doubt that sales were slipping, otherwise Ruger would not have ceased production.

I still like the quality of the 77/22, especially since it has the nice rotary magazine.
