Ruger rifle parts ???

A gunsmith friend of mine is trying to get a bolt stop & trigger for a
model 77-MKII Ruger and Ruger says they will not sell them to him or
don't sell those parts to anyone.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
Just trying to help a friend.
Help Appreciated,

I have a Ruger 77 Mk II trigger available for $10 to cover shipping. I'll check around for a bolt stop, but that one will be a tall order, you don't typically replace those.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?

I believe Ruger will replace them in house. I know of at least one aftermarket trigger maker and I bet there are several.

I can recommend getting a trigger from Jard,

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.

Most Ruger parts must be fitted in their factory. A bolt stop for a Mk II centre fire isn't one of 'em though. Triggers are.
Your rifle has to go to Ruger for the new trigger. If you've had a trigger job done, it'll likely come back needing it again.
Spelling and grammar count!
