M77v 257 Roberts

Hello,

I have a buddy that says he picked up an "Unpublished" Ruger 77v (tang safety) in 257 Roberts. Does anyone know of this particular model/caliber?

Thanks!!!!

I am not sure what is meant by unpublished 77v does the V mean a Varmint model M77 that might be true then??

By "unpublished" I mean an irregular run of guns that ruger makes when special ordered, usually in lots of 500 that is not in the regular ruger catalog. Yes, M77v is the varmint barreled tang safety.

I'm familiar with the caliber. My friend received one as his first big game rifle. It's parent case is the 7X57 Mauser case. Same as the 6mm Remington. My friend used that rifle to take an elk and mule deer the first year we went hunting.
As far as I know there are no factory rifles chambered for at present. The 25-06 took over as the quarter bore of choice.

unpublished I believe is non catalogued and ruger has as mentioned done this fairly regularly.

Does it have sights? Could be a 77ST. They had a 24" medium weight barrel.
