Questions about my 77/17

789 Views 12 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  JJW
I couldn't stand it any more, I finally got a ruger 77/17 vmbbz. I have just a few questions.

1. What scopes are you guys using on the 17 hmr? I don't mind spending the money to get a good scope, but I didn't want to get more scope than is necessary.

2. Are the ruger mounts any good? What do you recommend?

3. I would like to lighten the trigger pull. What replacement sear or sear/spring kit do you recommend? Something drop in would be nice.

4. Do bipods like the Harris scratch the stock where they attach to the sling swivel?

If these questions have already been answered, just direct me to a thread.

Jeez, now I feel like the cheapskate that I am; I put a Bushnell Scopechief 6-20, from Natchez, on my .17. 'Course I would've gladly put a Bushnell 4200, Weaver GrandSlam, Zeiss, etc. on it if I could've found one cheaper. Oh, and Ruger rings are good, also is a VQ sear.

I started with the . . . . . too-cheap . . . . . (sub$80) BSA on my .17! From there, I learned to spend MO MONEY on glass; so I went all out when Natchez ran the speshul. Now, I'll be a happy camper . . . . . at least until it fails. I do like CHEAP scopes, until they fail, then I hate 'em. Heck I thought my old Tasco Vamint/Tactical 2.5-10 mildot was hot $#!T . . . . until it failed, but that's in another thread.
