The Ruger M77 Hawkeye in the .270 caliber is a great choice.
Good Luck!


ronn, the hawkeye description says, "Classically styled, bolt-action rifle with barrel and receiver in Hawkeye Matte Blued finish"
So I'm guessing it's just a name given due to the matte blue finish other than that I see no difference at all.

Default The updated M77 is now called the hawkeye

Ruger upgraded the wood (quality and reshaped it) and went to the new hawkeye trigger which is a huge improvement. You have the same barrel, same built in scope bases. Most importantly they didn't raise the price, just a better rifle for your dollar.

The Hawkeye is actually the same as the Ruger Mark2 with the exception of a slimmer stock,nicer checkering and a LC-6 trigger, which is not alot better than the Mark2 trigger. Both triggers are not adjustable. Same gun, different trigger and name.
