    Mine is great. I have never heard that about any Ruger rifle. Or any Ruger.

    I have had mine for a while now and shoot the heck out of it. I have not had a single problem with the rifle or Ruger magazines.

    I have had very poor luck with CProducts magazines! They were horrible and the company was even worse when it came to trying to address the problems. I have heard they have worked hard to correct some of the issues they were having, so I hope things are better for them now.

    I am getting ready to do an update on this post:

    I have been bogged down with work and school, so I haven't shot as much as I should, but needless to say I have put some more rounds through the GSR with no problems.

    Hi cammogunner, where have you heard of these accusations against the GSR?

    Please use proper sentences so that we can read your posts easier. :)

    The GSR is still essentially a Ruger 77.

    My own Gunsite Scout, a left-handed model, works reliably.

    All the other 77s that I own (or have owned) also work/worked perfectly.

    You are the victim of one more bit of "Internet wisdom". The design is excellent, and has been well-proven over the decades since it was first introduced.

    I've researched the GSR extensively as I was looking to acquire one. These are great rifles with typical Ruger reliability from everything I've seen or heard. I am not easy to please, yet this is a rifle I would be happy to own. A very versitile rifle indeed.
