Unique among rimfire rifles, the 77/17M2 incorporates Ruger''s
patented detachable rotary magazine, plus the three-position safety
of the full size M77 Mark II rifles. Elegant, innovative and moderately
priced, this design has brought a new kind of quality and technical
excellence to small-game hunting and target shooting. Blue finish with
American Walnut stock.
Ruger 77/17 rotary magazine bolt action rifles are chambered for
the exciting new .17 caliber cartridge-the .17 Mach 2. These .17 caliber
Rimfire cartridges are high-velocity performers that are the answer to a
varmint hunter''s prayers. The .17 Mach 2 achieves a muzzle velocity of
2000 feet per second, more than 50% faster than the .22 Long Rifle
cartridge. This ultimately means a flatter trajectory and superior accuracy
for the target range and for small-game hunting alike.
Ruger 77/17 rifles incorporate Ruger patented detachable rotary magazines
(10 rounds in .17 Mach 2) and the patented Ruger scope mounting system
with integral scope bases and medium-height rings at no extra cost.
