The Ruger Model 77/22 was conceived as an elegant small-game and target rifle – a smallbore sporting rifle with universal appeal. Its popularity led to the 77/44, an outstanding choice for hunting deer in thick cover. Both are uniform in balance and style, and are nearly the same weight.
The Ruger 77/44 has the perfect combination of stopping power, light weight, short overall length and low recoil. The .44 Magnum is excellent for even the biggest bucks you’ll come across in brush country or tall timber. The reliable action and rotary magazine feed up to four decisive shots.
