I have an M77 Mark II in .270. Ruger's quality has been a roller coaster ride. Back when I got mine ('92), they made a good gun. The quality fell off after they changed locations. I've heard they are making a good gun again. I'm not sure if this is still the case, but I know the trigger on the older guns was horrible. They are non-adjustable and have about 3 feet of travel with a pull weight pretty close to that of a half-grown elephant. If you could get past the trigger, they were pretty accurate. I've seen some groups that looked like clover leaves. I had some work (trigger job, floated barrel, etc) done to mine and now it shoots a lot better.
