Does anyone out there know how to go about finding out how old a Ruger M77 220 Swift is? I recently purchased one at a local gun show and was just curious on its age. Thanks in advance!

Ruger has a list of serial number sequences posted on their website. If yours isn't listed, email the company. (I have a .220 Swift M77V/T that isn't listed. If yours is a tang-safety, V/T model it probably won't be listed, either.)

I prefer girls myself, but what ever floats your boat.

Calling Ruger would probably get you started in the right direction.
