Rifle 1 January 1969
On the cover we have... The Ruger Model 77 is an artistic blend of traditional and modern, representing perhaps the best of both. What could have been more fitting for this first issue of The Rifle? Turn a few pages to find John Wootters’ report of the M77’s performance. Photo by Walter Schwarz.
