    What is an older tang safety Ruger M77 .22-250 worth? It also has the bull barrel and an old Redfield scope. Probably made back in the late 70's.

    Hard to say. What Redfield?

    My 70's tang safety sports a Redfield 6 x18 of that vintage and the glass is still clear as a bell.


    They are heavy to carry but some shoot extremely well and others not so much.

    Give or take.

    Those that like tang safeties (only way to go) may pay a premium.

    Thanks. Looked at the gun today, overall it was in nice shape other than the bore had me a little leary. There was what looked to be major copper fouling at the muzzle. THe gun could have just been dirty but that was a sign to me it wasn't very well taken care of anyways. He wouldn't budge lower than 550. I'll keep looking

    I'd say that passing was a smart move, especially without shooting that rifle first.


    That said, I would NOT sell my rifle for 550, but I know that it is a shooter and know the round count.
