Those guns sure are some fine looking ones thats for sure. Ive been watching this post. Why not post average sized groups that you shoot with it too, since there are so many posts about the accuracy of these guns it seems. Regardless if they have aftermarket accessories, i know there are some real good shooters in the mix. I was just wishing there was a post with info on the gun doing the shooting, or like here, at least a picture of it, with avg group size or something included, knock out two birds with one stone.

Ole man river- i sure do like that blued gun in the middle pic! Like to stick that massive palm swell from the first stock onto that angled thumbhole stock too. I think that would fit me right nicely.

The one on top has been sold, but while I had it it was very accurate and I hope it still is.
The middle one has been my walk around rifle in the PD & Gopher fields and hasn't let me down yet.
The bottom one was built for and at the request of Buck Pope and he is writing an article about it now. He told me he was getting .4 & .6 groups at 100 with it. I'll be testing it again myself when I get it back and out to the range after it warms up.

did you put the tung oil directly over the factory finish or did you strip it down to bare wood first? good looking rifle.
The gun is pretty old and it really didn't have much of a finish to start with but yes I didn't bother stripping it down. I think with tung oil unless you have a varathane/hard platic finish you can put tungoil on wood. As long as it penetrates the wood it should be alright.

Ole' Man River, your clear finishes are right up there with Tuck paint jobs.

Hey Troutman, sweet gun. What's the color of that stock if you don't mind me asking.

Hi DM1,
That's a Boyd's Pepper Laminate "Ross Thumbhole". Well finished stock that needed only final sanding and finishing, I can highly recommend them.

Hey Troutman

I'm thinking of getting the nutmeg for my build. Can you please tell me how long the wood is from the receiver forward and how wide the forend is. Did it require much fitting? Did you bed it. Thanks.

Here's my VQ barreled 77/22 and a pretty typical 10 shot group at 50yds.

Troutman,

I have been wanting to rework my stock 77/22 for awhile now. I really like the look of that Boyd's furniture you have installed.

Looking at the Ross Thumbholes on Boyd's website, I am assuming you have this model:

403-829 ROSS RUGER 77/22 FBC STK PL (VIP) $88.94

... which claims to have a "factory barrel channel" - thus I assume you had to sand it out for the .920 barrel - please confirm this!

Well I got anxious and couldn't wait for the barrel so I took a couple of pictures

I bought some 30mm rings and once again found myself very lucky.

The bolt is literally mm's away from touching the scope tube.

Had I got mediums I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have worked. The has about 15-20 coats of tung oil but you can't really appreciate it until you see it.




As for scopes, go big or go home

BTW It's January 12th and t-shirt worthy outside. What's up with this weather?
