Gun Report

Ruger M77/22R .22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The $399 Ruger 77/22-R showed what we think are valuable characteristics in a sporter rimfire. The integral scope base and accompanying rings, smooth operation of the bolt, accuracy, and a great feel on the line make this gun largely worth the money. But in our view, it falls short in the trigger area, which we believe is crucial, especially when it competes head to head against the Remington so directly in price, weight, and function.

The Ruger had a scope base built into the receiver, and scope rings were provided, saving the owner at least $30 in aftermarket costs.
Clip magazines (left) found in the other guns weren't a match for the Ruger's rotary model, we thought.
The Ruger's flat area in front of the trigger guard allowed the gun to be shot with a bridge, palm, or fist. The magazine could be withdrawn by pressing a button.
