I have been trying to find a Ruger Model 77-17 (.17HMR)in blued finish for awhile now, but no one seems to have any---I am hoping someone on here will know where to locate one. New or like new. Thanks

I tried gunsamerica but everyone I contacted said that their guns were sold and didn't know when they would be getting more in....Just my luck

Just a suggestion.

If ya really, really want a 77/17. Find a more common 77/22 Magnum and just re-barrel it for the .17"Hummer".

Green Mountain and Volquartsen has "drop-in" barrels for the conversion. And you'll have a much better rifle than the factory 77/17

You can read all about the "Hummer" at www.rimfirecentral.com. Go to the .17cal discussion Forum. You might even be able to find someone who's re-barreled thier 77/17 and has a factory .17 barrel for sale.

Personal opinion, I'll stick to my .22 Magnums.

That sounds like a damn good idea. I will check over there and probably rebarrel my 77/22mag. Thanks

EatBeef,

Happy we can help.

Please, DO NOT tell them, at RFC, that "ski" sent ya!

I am the leader of the "Maggits" and don't want them to know that I helped someone convert a .22WMR to a .17HMR.

BWAHAHAHAHA!
