1978 HOT ROD

MAY BUILD OF THE MONTH

Vintage Hot Rod

The Ruger M77 was the no BS rifle of its day.  Solid functionality that appeared no-frills on the surface but to the discriminating hunter it was easy to see that it had everything needed.  A Redfield 4x12 Accu-Trac, Accu-Range scope on the other hand was bells and whistles like never seen before in the world of optics.

For May's build we have taken the amazingly functional, accurate, and non-finicky Ruger M77 of 1978 vintage and paired it with a period correct Redfield 4x12 power Accu-Trac, Accu-Range scope. An unlikely combination of a meat and potatoes gun topped with the most innovative scope of its day-until you realize that this particular M77 is the super rare 6mm caliber. If you owned this combination back in the day, you probably thought you were the bomb of long range hunting...and you probably were.

The best of Redfield  This rare 4x12 accu-range scope is in NrMnt condition and includes the prized 4P CCH reticle. This combination provided never before seen in-scope rangefinding for practical hunting scenarios. Those that owned and mastered the scope didn't see much game get away.
