That reminds of bassboat guys. Everyone swears the boat they own rides the best lol
Rugers are a bit tricky to bed, but not difficult. I did one of mine. The way the action bolts to the stock, makes me believe that bedding will only improve it. I am not a gunsmith, but I have bedded several rifles to include a Ruger 77 tang safety. The other usual suspects to look at is the trigger and crown.
If not already mentioned, I believe the KY Gun Company has a gunsmith.
The former gunsmith there wasn't worth a shit. I dont know about the new guy. He quoted me a price for a trigger job on my 9mm. $50 and that included the parts. Told him I already had the parts. He said the price was the same and I shouldn't have bought the parts. I told him to....well...you can imagine.
Installed the damn thing myself. After that interaction, I am not fond of the guy.
Do you reload? I have a 7mag M77 that would not shoot under 1 1/2 at a 100 for a 3 shots using several different factory loads. My first try at reloads for it was 3/4”. My current load will put 5 around a 1/2” if I do my part
I know Gary Romans is no longer with us, but his shop used to be known for working on Rugers. Especially polishing the triggers to improve them. I kick myself every once in a while when I think about how I could've had the old man do mine, but never took the time to take it in.
I have a 70's model in 3006 with adjustable trigger that's a tack driver! All original wood it's never had anything done to it, factory iron sights with probably the best blueing I have ever seen, it was left to me by my late brother who bought it new.
Would love to kill a elk with it.
My model 77 came with a factory adjustable trigger.
