Yeah, I have since seen them with silver scopes. The guy I bought it from was a dick, and no longer in business....I wonder why......

When you guys take the thing apart, did anyone notice the instructions are wrong about how to remove the safety? (Or something around there) Also, has anyone taken the mag catch apart? I did, and the pin holding the 2 parts together was bent. Turns out the 4 holes that maybe should line up, don't.

I do like the gun, plan on shooting it more this summer. The other thing is it looks kinda dumb, being the all weather version, with a black scope. I was told at time of purchase, no one made a silver scope, unless maybe if you spent a ton of money.....
I haven't taken the mag catch appart, so I couldn't say. I don't remember having to do anything with the safety when I replaced the seer (sp?) about the only thing I normally take apart is the bolt. And that is about once a year or so to clean, so the firing pin doesn't hang up in cold weather.

In the manual, it tells you how to take the gun down pretty far. Nothing with the trigger, or the actual bolt, if I remember, but all the the major components....

Although the magazines for a 10-22 will usually work with a 77-22 they are not the same. You can check your manual or just put a magazine from each on a flat surface and observe them. The 77-22 magazine have a flat base while the 10-22 magazines are rounded.. Having two 77-22s in the family I just had to try the 10-22 magazines. The correct flat magazines work a lot smoother.
Really good rifles-have fun!

I'll be damned...You're right. Well, the gun shop didn't know anything about the 77/22, so when I asked for the mags, they ended up ordering the ones for the 10/22. I'll just try one and see how it works........I don't see the point in making them that slightly different, though.
