Ruger's Auction To Benefit Honored American Veterans Afield

This is a special one; Ruger's 100th auction on! Ruger's Description: "This is Ruger’s 100th auction with, and we are celebrating this milestone by auctioning off a .375 Ruger caliber M77® Hawkeye® Alaskan Rifle previously owned by President and CEO Mike Fifer. The serial number is 710-49691, and the rollmark date is January 10, 2008. Mike Fifer used this rugged, big game rifle during a brown bear hunt on the Alaska Peninsula in May 2010 where he successfully harvested a large 8’ 10.5” brown bear. Ruger Senior Sales Manager Randell Pence, hunting guide Bob Lacher, and videographer Danny Dodge accompanied Fifer on this hunt. Their exciting adventure was featured on an episode of the television show Ruger’s Adventures, and has been documented in a photo book created by Fifer. An autographed copy of this book will be included with the auction rifle, along with the same Burris® scope used during the bear hunt, and a Ruger-branded rifle case. This rifle features a textured Hogue® OverMolded®, non-slip rubber stock, a 20 inch hammer-forged barrel, and V-Notch windage adjustable express iron rear and white bead front sights. Other features include: the LC6™ trigger; non-rotating, Mauser-type controlled round feed extractor; patented integral scope mounts; and three-position safety. The M77® Hawkeye® Alaskan Rifle is being sold “as is.” The purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale. It is a part of the Ruger factory collection in Southport, Connecticut and a Certificate of Authenticity will be mailed to the winner of the auction."
