I can't believe I've not posted to this thread yet. I've had both rifles for a couple years now.

The top one is a 77/22 Mag, bought new in late '06. It has a Jard 1# trigger, Bushnell Trophy 4-12x40 AO, and floated stock barrel. I bedded it, but I want to try pillars next. It'll shoot Fed 50g and CCI 40g into 1/2" at 50 yards, but loves the new V-max ammo even better, putting 10 into .400" groups more than a few times.

The bottom one was an accident - I walked in with the money for another gun, and walked out with this one instead. It's an '84 in .22LR, and came with some very professional work to the original barrel and trigger. It shoots CCI Mini-mags the best, no worse than .500" at 50 yards. It wears a Bushnell Legend 3-9x40. Right now, I'm refinishing the stock as a "kill time at work" project.

Here's a couple of pics....








The scope is made by Rex Optics, 10-40X50. Also sold under the ZOS brand. Very nice for the price point.... about $270. I've had 3 of them on different guns. You can spend more & get less.

AND.... the big sidewheel strikes fear in the hearts of your competitors.

I changed countertops for the better too lol.

Here's Mine

Nothing fancy, but it shoot good. Just a bone-stock 77/22VBZ, except for a Jard trigger that breaks at a crisp 1.25 pounds.

77/22 Wmr

I posted about a year ago, but I never included a pic (didn't know how). So here is the results of alot of time invested, a custom stock from CWG, a 22 in LILJA Varmint taper barrel. The ammo it shoots is from Outland Sales they load for me with a 45gr. 6 ogive benchrest bullet. It will punch out the 10 ring on a 100 yd. BR target at 100 yds.

EMTI99, the early 77/22 had a hard plastic butt plate while the current production has a softer recoil pad type. (I might be wrong)

Does anyone know when that change was made?

Would you mind sharing some details, they sure are good looking. Particularly would like to hear about the stocks and optics + anything else you would like to share about them.
THanks,
Josh

STRUGL4X'SC - Those are some beautiful rifles. How long have you had the one on the right? it looks like it's been around for a while based off the metal finish. Amazing wood.

Thank you guys, Im glad you like them. Lets see, some details; the one on the right is stainless steel, not worn bluing, it has factory 24" barrel,timney sear and spring, light honing, weaver v-16 silver, weatherby style aaa claro, hollowed out to keep weight down for sporter class silhouette, bedded in two little places under action. with original stock it would shoot 1/2" groups at 50yrds fairly eisily;now it shoots the same, maybe slightly more consistant. rifle on left: clark 20" sporter barrel, both are 22lr,weaver v-16, timney sear-spring, skeleton but plate and grip cap, exb. claro, 20 lpi checkering in but, grip, forend,that one shoots even better ! 1/4 50 yrd 5 shot groups not all the time but often enough to be no fluke, with lapua midas L . THANK YOU.
