My wife bought me a new .30-06 for my birthday, so that will become my deer/elk rifle. I have a Ruger 7mm Rem Mag with a Nikon scope. It's all sighted in and I'm comfy with it, so I'll use it for my deer hunt in late October - but after that I'd like to trade it for a .22-250. I'll consider a .223 or .220 Swift as well. Need a Predator rifle :) The Ruger is in very good condition, I'd like to trade for something of similar value.

I may consider selling outright

OK - will do a straight sale. I did manage to put a quarter sized scratch on the stock (butt) yesterday.

I'd like to have $450 cash which will include the sling, scope & mounts, and a couple of half boxes of ammo. FTF, local meet only.





scratch - near the top of the stock, in line with the swivel

Desert Rat, I sent you another Pm and I guess you didn't get it?

Anyway... From the pics you posted and those in my Stoeger Gun Guide, it looks like what you have is the Model 77 Mark II.

Can you tell by any of the markings on the gun if it's a:

Model 77 MKIIR

Model 77RLS MKII

Model 77RL MKII

Can you see any place along the barrel where open sights were previously mounted?

Sorry, Dan - I got your PM, but never managed to go out and look it over. I just did now, though. Yes, it's an M77 MkII. That's all it says on the rifle, all it says on the manual. It's never had open sights, nor provisions for open sights (that I can see).

Sorry for the delay.

No problem Rat. Now I'm armed with all the info and can run this deal by my son. I'll let you know as soon as possible.

Wanted to Buy

Predator Rifle

Would prefer that it includes a scope, but not a deal-breaker

.22-250 .223 .220 Swift .223WSSM or maybe something I missed...

Varmints to lions

Would like to stay at $500 or less

To bad your not closer to Hereford, we could sit down over a beer, or two :beer: , and haggle about the price on this one.

Savage Model 12FVSS 22-250
Harris Bi-Pod
Weaver Grand Slam 6-20x40 Fine Cross Hairs w/Dot

Nice thing about this rifle is that I shot all the misses out of it, aint got none left :D

Chief - I plan on coming to visit you someday anyway - I don't need a reason :wink:

I'm no gun broker, but I think that one is out of my range of budgetary realities lol

Since Desert Rat has failed to update his post, I will.

His Ruger Model 77 MKII listed above has been.... SOLD!!

Thanks Rat!

Chief, I believe a check is in the mail for you? And no, it ain't no Radio Shack Rebate check. :roll:

Correct on both accounts amigo. Thanks Dan for your gun-brokering; thanks Chief for your "flexibility in dickering" :D
