Ruger M77 History and General Information:
 The Ruger M77 is a bolt-action rifle produced by Sturm, Ruger & Company and was introduced to the shooting public in 1967. The rifle features a traditional Mauser-style two-lugged bolt with a claw extractor. The most unique feature of the Ruger M77 is the angled action screw. The Ruger M77 uses an angled screw that draws the action down and to the rear, tightly bedding it against the stock.

 A simple plunger style ejector was used in the original Ruger M77 rifle, a two-position tang safety and adjustable trigger system were also designed from scratch in the original Ruger M77 rifle and all had a rounded-top receiver drilled and tapped for scope mounts.

 The Ruger M77 has undergone several notable redesigns.

 The first notable change involved incorporating a scope mount milled integral with the receiver which then required special Ruger M77 ring mounts.

Ruger M77 Mark II:
 The second most notable change came in 1991 with the introduction of the Ruger M77 Mark II. The safety, bolt, and trigger were completely redesigned. The claw extractor was retained, but the bolt face was opened up to allow controlled-round feeding. The plunger ejector was replaced with a Mauser style blade ejector. Finally, a three-position safety allowed the bolt to be operated while the gun was still on safe. Ruger also eliminated the adjustable trigger that came stock on the original Ruger M77.

Ruger M77 Hawkeye:
 The third most notable change came in 2006 with the introduction of the Ruger M77 Hawkeye. Major changes were made to the trigger system and the stock was recontoured, but otherwise the rifle remained unchanged. The Ruger M77 Hawkeye's LC6 trigger is lighter, smoother and addressed complaints from consumers that the Ruger M77 Mark II trigger, though safer than the earlier one, was poorly designed for accurate shooting.
