View Full Version : Ruger M77 value?

March 27, 2011, 10:07 PM
I just bought a Ruger M77 chambered in .243 win. It has a 20 inch factory heavy target barrel, has "made in the 200th year of american liberty" stamped on the barrel. I gave 500 for it, rip off or good deal? Any ideas what it is worth?

Check the serial number in Ruger's serial number history (http://www.ruger.com/service/productHistory/RI-M77.html). Make sure the serial number coincides with a bicentennial barrel (otherwise, it's just a bicentennial barrel on a newer/older action).

In my opinion, you overpaid, unless you got a good scope (or other accessories) in the deal.

$450-$500 is the going rate for a standard used Ruger in good shape around here. For a target barreled version I don't think you did bad if it is in good shape

rugers heavy barrels were all 26 inch. I would have to guess that your barrel was cut off.
