    Ruger M77 MII .223 Rem : Anything I should know about it?

    Purchased one used recently and so far it shoots pretty well. Trigger has been upgraded already (heard they we awful from manufacture) so is there anything else I should know about this rifle?

    Yes, it's a very good quality rifle. Ruger has discontinued the model 77 for a less expensive, lower quality replacement.

    Spend the extra money and get a CZ527, you won't regret it.

    Good to know. Can't wait to get out and shoot some yotes with her.

    The Model 77 Hawkeye would've replaced the Mark II and appears to still be in production. AFAIK it was only the small 77 in rimfire and pistol calibres that's no longer available.

    Didn't realize the Hawkeye is a model 77.

    Yep, Ruger updated the 77 Mark II a few years back giving it, among other tidbits, a nicer and adjustable trigger. The action remains basically the same. The scaled down version also being dubbed '77' is a hair confusing, though I don't think that version ever got the Mk II designation. An old boss had a 22 Magnum in stainless with the canoe paddle stock years back. It was a helluva nice gun....

    So what other "tidbits" did the Hawkeye get over the Mk. II?
