I'm a fan of the M77 too.
I have one in in 7mm Remington Mag, and it's little cousion, the 77/22.
I like the boat oar composite stock.
I kick myself for getting the walnut on my 7mm in lieu of the boat oar stock because, shortly thereafter it was discontinued and I have yet to find another one on the usd market in any caliber.
"Growing up as both a Southern and the son of a child of the '50s, I was imprinted with several things that have long stuck with me. The F-86 Saber Jet was the finest fighter ever flown, the National League is always superior, and Leslie Coffelt
was the finest revovler shooter since Mr. Ed."
