77/50

How many of you guys got one of these? I really like mine, but I had to buy the .209 primer conversion kit from Cabela's to get it to go off each and every time. Now it is a reliable tack driver. Pretty good looking stock too, not to be real walnut.

Think I can revive a 6year old thread??

Ive got two, both Stainless with grey laminate stocks.
I have a 209 kit but never installed it. They both have musket cap nipples on them and theyre reliable.

As for deer hunting, we just make note to change the primer a couple time during the day.

Prior to this I had some off brand old style Black powder that never reliably fired.. sold that for a T/C Omega... that gun grouped 3 shots all 12" apart consistantly... sold that off and finally got my 77/50. Drive nails with that gun!!

I understand the usefullness of such uzzleloaders. But maybe because I was a young child during the civil war centennial and grew up wth fess parker as davy crockett and daniel boone and lived near navy arms nj store for many years. Ah the stuff you found there and the stuff I bought there. but I digress. I have always liked traditonal muzzleloaders with wood stock and flint or percussion cap firing.

I have two unfired. I bought the Musket Cap breech plugs for them.The one is a All Weather. Then I got right as they were being discontinued a gray laminated S/S one. I got addicted to my Knight DISC.

Unfortunately these were discontinued in 2004. I imagine they are getting scarce.

I checked GunBroker and there are few, however price is manageable.

I have the All Weather Stainless model with the Cabelas 209 primer kit installed. Throughly enjoy the rifle for sure, great addition for any Ruger Nut to own one. Especially in those states that do not allow "Rifled" guns for deer season. I almost prefer this to a rifled shotgun slugged barrel, but that's only my 2 cents on this.

Thumbs up Ruger M77/50 NEW IN BOX

Though the M77/50 has been discontinued since 2004, there is a gun shop in Elk Grove, CA that still has 3 of them new in the box for sale ($499). One is the officer's model with straight stock, one is walnut/blue steel and the 3rd one is all weather. If anyone is interested, I will give you the contact info and you can move forward from there.
