Question Ruger 77/50 cost/worth?

Hi everyone,

I saw a Ruger 77/50 Stainless with Laminate stock and Simmons scope for sale at a LGS and it is a consignment gun and the gun is priced $400.

I remember these a few years on close out but never did get around to picking one of these up and now dont remember the price.

For those of you who have one how do they like them and how well do they shoot? I have thought of picking this one up to go along with my ROA's. What is your favorite load?

Thanks,

The price seems fair and if you want a contemporary muzzle loader I would buy it. My muzzle loading taste runs to something carried by the army of the Potomac or by Jim Bridger. Nothing wrong with a modern one just not my taste.

The Ruger 77/50 is a pretty good in-line MLer. Just never caught on like the T/C's & the CVA's. Price is a tad high, but if its in really good shape, (inside & out) its not bad. If possible, pull the breech plug & make sure that the bore is not pitted. I fool around with a lot of used MLer's & you'd be surprised how many are left loaded for months or even years at a time, then taken to pawn shop or traded at a local dealer. You buy it and they are not worth the powder to blow them up. (pun intended). Just give it a thorough inspection before you commit.

Agreed. It has always amazed me how many people buy a ML for the first time and have no clue how to maintain them. If there is a lack of proper maintenance on the weapon, theres a good chance that its really just a wallhanger now.

I have a 77/50 209 conversion kit I would sell cheap. I haven't read many good things about the conversion kit.
