What was wrong with the 77/22? These look terrible with the iron sights.

It is more expensive than most other bolt action .22's. I think the American Rimfire is Ruger getting into the budget bolt .22

These are really nice rifles and have to be handled to be appreciated. First time I saw a photo of one I thought it looked rather cheap. Once in hand though the look, feel and quality is very good. I'm just waiting for my dealer to get a shipment in.

Therein lies the problem. They are very nice. The fit & finish is NICE. I even like the "boat paddle" synthetic stock mine has. Honestly, I think it's the best one ever made. However, if it can't hit $hit, what's the point? CZ has a far better reputation for doing that, at a much lower price point, and the F&F is very good.

Wait one. The trigger on the 77/22 SUCKS. When it was the only one I had, I heard people say that and didn't know what they meant. Then I got a couple other BA rim fires. Oh. THAT's what they meant. It does suck.

There is a guy out there who is excellent at tuning & tweaking the 77/22. He can make it shoot right, etc. Eventually some day, mine will go there. When I get some extra cash.

I def. want to pick up at least one, if not one in each caliber, since the price is right.

I was looking at at least one in 22 wmr. I already have a selection of 22lr. It would be much more economical than the 10/22 magnum that I have been planning on building.

I would be ok with a 10/22 magnum, but so far they have not made that many...hard to find one.

Ruger stopped making them after about a year or two. Problems with the bolt weight breaking. VERY expensive used gun. Never seen one under $6-700.

What I'm talking about is a full custom on the razor reciever and razors bolt system(~$280 for reciever and bolt). Still a $500 22mag with some shop time to get it. I've built a couple of their 22lr recievers. Not too terrible, fair amount of machine shop time to finish. Still a high price for a 22mag. The ruger American would be much less expensive!

Howdy,
I picked the 22"barrel model in .22lr. I added a 3X9 Tasco Mag 22 scope. It can shoot within a 1/2" hole at 50 yards. I bought mine at Academy for $269. I am happy with the rifle but one turtle in my pond isnt too happy with the results. Have a goodun!!!!!!!!!!!!!
