Re: Ruger 77 hawkeye compact
I bought one before last season for my 8 year old. His is in 260 Rem, walnut, blued with a Leupold Compact 3x9.
Nice shooting little gun, very quick to the shoulder for me and it fits him very well. The short barrel produces a bit of muzzle blast but its not unbearable even for a kid. My only complaint, if you could call it that, is the safety. I still like the old Tang Safety Rugers and not a big fan of the 3 positions on the new ones. It is loud and a bit tough to manipulate with a glove on. To make it somewhat quiet I always have to use 2 fingers to ease it off.
Great little guns in my opinion!!
