Ruger Firearms has generously donated an early model 77/22 bolt action rifle to benefit the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP). The rifle is being auctioned on Gunbroker.com now through February 21, 12:30PM eastern time.
The Ruger 77/22® Model 77/22R was first introduced in the 1984 price sheets. This particular rifle, serial number 700-49960, was testfired October 21, 1985. The rifle features a blued 20-inch barrel with no sights. It has an American walnut stock with attached sling swivel studs and checkering on the pistol grip and forend. The stock has a molded nylon buttplate with an embossed Ruger eagle logo in the center. There is also a Ruger eagle logo inlaid in the pistol grip cap. The receiver incorporates the integral scope bases of the patented Ruger Scope Mounting System that accommodate the included 1-inch scope rings. A detachable 10-round magazine and original instruction manual, purchaser record card, and other marketing materials, are also included. The rifle will be shipped in its original bolt-action rifle box.
The rifle is being sold “as is.” The purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale. It is a part of the Ruger factory collection in Southport, Connecticut and a Certificate of Authenticity will be mailed to the winner of the auction. Please note that the winning bidder of this auction is responsible for paying the Federal Excise Tax.
Ruger has committed to supporting the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) through a series of Gunbroker.com auctions running through mid-April, with a new auction beginning each Wednesday at 12:30 pm EST. Upcoming auctions will include many rare “one-of-a-kind” sample firearms!
