A Ruger M(odel) 77 R is a bolt action repeater with tapered barrel and no iron sights, just the scope. Weight is 8.25 lbs plus the weight of the scope, not too heavy for a 7mm Magnum.
Caliber is 7mm Remington Magnum, a specific cartridge to be bought by name, not the same as a 7mm Mauser, 7mm Weatherby, 7mm RUM, 7mm WSM etc. etc., even though they all shoot 7mm (.284") diameter bullets.
Redfield is the brand of scope sight, the power (magnification) not given.

The other custom build is described but not illustrated.
It has an FN (Fabrique Nationale of Belgium) Mauser type action of very high quality and a Douglas barrel (made in USA.) Caliber is almost certainly .270 Winchester firing a .277" diameter bullet. SN (serial number?) M69 sounds strange but who knows?
A Redfield 3-9 Variable with magnification from 3 to 9 power is very versatile. A Lee Dot is an aftermarket reticle (aiming point) in the scope comprising a small black dot instead of the usual crosshairs. I don't know what the 5.N.F. might stand for. Maybe it was a code by the late Mr Lee that the present owner does not use.
The rifle could have about any style of stock that suited G. Uncle. It might be plain or fancy, conventional or eccentric. Get a look, a feel, pictures.
