Since the 77/22 comes in both rim fire and centerfire, which one? A very good friend bought a 77/22 in .22 Hornet. It has been a money pit. Action, bolt, trigger, chamber reamed after barrel setback........ He could have bought a new CZ and had $ left over for what he has into it. I am amazed at how little our money is worth. I bought a new 527 Varminter 2 years ago for $475.00. $751.00 for the American now!
CZ-USA -> CZ 527 American
If you want a .22lr target gun, I know of a few for real short cash. They do need some TLC.
