They certainly have their followers.  If you like projects, they fit the criteria.

I think the tang safety m77s were better. Never have been impressed with the newer ones.

 All but two of mine are M77ís (Tang) and shoot great, the project is a MkII.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I had a 77 all-weather, boat paddle stock in 300 win mag that didn't shoot well.  I put a Hogue stock and dropped in an aftermarket trigger and was shooting 1 MOA all day with factory ammo.
I ended up giving the gun back to the guy as a holiday gift...he sold it to me because he was in a tight spot financially.

Hopefully this one never needs to be rebarrelled. Newer than the boat paddle stock version.

hawkeye?  i picked one of those up as an impulse purchase in a moment of temporary insanity (after all, what the heck an i going to use a .375 for?) :chuckle: and it's a fantastic rifle.  great rifle, great stock, the only thing that bothers me about it is that the detents on the safety are kind of "mushy" compared to the positive clicks on my mkii.

in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun

One of the later year MKII All Weather before they changed to Hawkeye. Got it 20 years ago. Put well over 2000 rounds through it and it just keeps on hammering.

the cost to re-barrel is approaching value of rifle (i think). they are "hunting made" with the marginal trigger adjustments of m77's, some year series you cant even get a :twocents: custom trigger to adjust (like a timney), may be worth your value to just replace with something a bit more "modern". if you have attachment :dunno: to this rifle then for sure, keep it and work it...but
