I have a friend who bought a nice sports car when he was near retirement age, because he said it had always been on his bucket list, and his bucket was getting shallow!!

Life is short. Enjoy it!

I said that Ruger may make a deluxe version of the American. That might result in their dropping the 77, maybe not immediately, but you never know what will happen in the business...especially when a firearm company gets bought out by a large corporation. Profit rules, no matter how much we drool.

What I see happening is more variations of the RAR and less lower cost options of the M77 such as the basic Hawkeye. They will need to widen the gap between the two lines if they expand the RAR line.

Kind of like what's Happened to Weatherby. Is the MK V really more accurate than the Vanguard? No but it's a lot nicer rifle. And a lot more expensive than the basic Vanguard.
