Can anyone tell me the difference between the two? I have only owned one Ruger center fire in my life time, a .22-250 M77 Mark II. Sold it to my brother to get some flavor of the month at the time. Good thing is I still get to shoot it occassionally. After a Timney trigger, the thing is a tack driver.
Anyway, I ran across a M77 chambered in .308. The rifle is 98% and the price is right. However, it doesn't say "MKII" on it like my .22-250 did. Is this just an older version of the M77? It does have the two position tang safety.
Also, at the base of the trigger is a set screw. Is this indicitive of an aftermarket trigger? The trigger is a little heavy, but it is crisp. Do the factory triggers have this set screw? I know they're not adjustable. If in fact this is an aftermarket/adjustable trigger (i.e. Timney), then that makes the deal even sweeter.
