What can you say about a 77, this is just a classic quality springer, built to last more than a lifetime and to perform always at the very top of spring technology.
This particular rifle belonged to my father in law and dates around 1988. It had been stored and forgotten in an attic and had gone all rusty and tatty. It’s been a long term project to restore it and bring it back to its former glory.
I completely stripped it to bare metal, all rust removed and the steel polished and cold reblued. The internals were all polished and relubed and a V-Mach kit was installed. The stock was stripped with NitroMoors, stained and oiled. The result is what you can see here.
I have taken this gun many times with me in the field and it’s a deadly weapon. It has minimal recoil, consistency and match accuracy. It’s certainly not the lightest tool to take around with you but a sling goes a long way. To me, the 77 has the charm of times gone by and if this is the gun you’re after, I cannot recommend it more.
