Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce a family of five new Target Grey stainless steel Ruger M77 Mark II Frontier rifles. Originally introduced in blued steel in late 2004, the Ruger M77 Mark II Frontier rifle, with its distinct barrel rib for forward mounting of intermediate-eye-relief scopes, has proven to be a fast-handling, reliable game rifle from New Zealand to New England.
New for 2006, the Ruger M77 Mark II Frontier rifle is now available in weather-resistant, glare-reducing Target Grey stainless steel, complementing its durable, non-warping, grey laminated wood stock and recoil pad. Like the blued steel models, it is available in .243 Winchester, 7mm-08 Remington, .308 Winchester, and .300 WSM calibers, as well as the powerful new .325 WSM cartridge.
The Ruger M77 Mark II Frontier rifle's compact, 16 1/2" medium-weight barrel with scope rib cut for Ruger rings (supplied with each rifle at no extra charge...a $75.00 value), makes for easy carry and accurate shooting in heavy cover. Front mounted, intermediate-eye-relief scopes help fast "eyes open" target acquisition and tracking, while allowing easy carry with either hand at the balance point of the rifle, and permit easy loading and unloading without scope interference. The correctly proportioned, short 12 1/2" length-of-pull stock also permits fast handling, particularly when heavy hunting clothes are worn.
The New Target Grey stainless steel Ruger M77 Mark II Frontier rifle is now even more capable to take on the elements and help make your hunts successful. Compact size, weather resistance, and fast handling power in an-easy-to-carry, dependable package are all good reasons to own the stainless steel Ruger M77 Mark II Frontier rifle. Each rifle also includes a Weaver-style scope base adapter, scope rings, California-approved external locking device, and a comprehensive instruction manual.
