I have the 77/22 boat paddle.

I hated shooting it, because it had the F150TC lawyer trigger.
This is the one that required a Ford F150 and tow chain to pulll...

We dropped in the Volquartzen kit, which made a world of improvement.
It now has a nice and crisp trigger.
Somewhere in the 3.5 lbs range on my buddy's digital gauge.

Well, I don't have all 4 anymore. With divorce, I sold them. I have two of them back now. My 264 and 300. My 7 RM and 338, are gone out of state. But I will have my collection again. I'm a huge fan of the MKII rifles.

I've been told I can use a barrel and barrel nut made for a Ruger American, to rebarrel my M77 mkii, as all Rugers have the same thread pattern. Is this true?

I couldn't stand them when they were a thing, but for some unknown reason I now can't pass on up. Must be a retro thing.

I’m pretty sure they aren’t interchangeable. The M77 barrel threads into the action against the shoulder of the barrel. The American uses a barrel nut similar to the Savage.

You can’t PM because you don’t have enough posts......pretty sure you need 10.

Not enough posts for full access. You need at least 10.

Oh yeah, I’ve had my Zytel since they first came out. Mines chambered in 7 Mag. I bought it as a tool to use in crappy weather, it’s kind of grown on me over the years. I’ll never part with it especially since it’ll shoot sub MOA.

The boat paddle zytel stocks are my favs. I have my 77/22 from about 1990 and my 30-06 is from around 2004 iirc. I love them! I don't like the newer style.

You couldn't have told any of us folks over the age of say, 50, that age was going to make a difference in us physically. So, when I was a fun-greeny back in 1988 I bought a Sendero in .223, added scope and bipod. The rig weighed in at 10.5 pounds and a 2# trigger - the only thing light about that gun. It was dead-on at 200 yards which is about as far as I needed for this part of PA (and certain death for any groundhog/ woodchuck/ whistlepig). I loved it! Now, at age 68 I can barely lift let alone carry it. Pride has kept me from selling it up until now. While musing what was keeping me from 'hog hunting' I recalled these light guns, but also that they had a reportedly bad rep for their felt recoil. But then, how much recoil does that .223 have?!! These boat oars are looking more and more attractive now. (I'll shut up now. )

Oh yeah.. my favorites. I’ve had a 308 boat paddle for years and am always on the lookout for more. There’s a .17 sitting down at the gun shop that I’ve been eyeballing ... even though it’s always windy here.
Can’t imagine what some of the bigger calibers recoil is like.
