The Ruger 77/22® Model 77/22R was first introduced in the 1984 price sheets. This particular rifle, serial number 700-51086, was testfired October 23, 1985. The rifle had been used as a show gun, but was never sold. The rifle features a blued 20-inch barrel with no sights. It has an American walnut stock with attached sling swivel studs and checkering on the pistol grip and forend. Instead of the molded nylon buttplate found on the regular production models at that time, the stock on this rifle has a rubber buttpad with an embossed Ruger eagle logo in the center. There is also a Ruger eagle logo inlaid in the pistol grip cap. The receiver incorporates the integral scope bases of the patented Ruger Scope Mounting System that accommodate 1-inch scope rings. A detachable 10-round magazine and appropriate instruction manual are included with the rifle.
