$700 is way too much. other than that, good gun - be sure you are ok w/ the shortened l.o.p.

I have a 77RL that I am very partial to. I like Ruger rifles a lot, if you like the Compact Rifle concept, the Ruger will be a very solid and totally servicable choice.

Ruger makes a decent base rifle. Crown the barrel, have the action slicked, trigger job, may want to get it bedded, get a scope with the target towers and you should be on your way.

I highly recommend Robar. They have done outstanding work on my Rugers.

FWIW, I like a LOP of 12.25. I'm 6'1" and wear a 34/35 sleeve. Short LOP is where it is at.:D

Here's the boys at Robar: http://www.robarguns.com/ They know what they are doing.

This is me at Thunder Ranch with a wayward Ruger 77RSI. Have had scope and rifle corrected by fine folks at Robar. Live and learn!:D
