I am hoping that i could find someone who knows what gun i have. It is a M77 tang safety... 25-06 bull barrel, no sights, but it has screw holes with plugs for a scope mount out on the barrel . I called ruger they gave me the date of shipment, date of manufacture and the model designation. I can find no reference to that model number ... model number 0761 is what wanda at ruger told me. no more info. trying to figure out for parts ordering .... trigger type.... springs and things. anyone know what this model number means ? thanks.

Only if it's a Hollowbolt or Flatbolt.

I believe any tang safe 77V in 25-06 is considered scarce according to Rene if I read it right. see pg 291 of the first pocket reference

pg 291 refers to non-Liberty, non-Warning rifles. If it is one of those it is scarce, if not, not so much.

:D

It will have the standard Ruger trigger. Any gunsmith can slick it up for you.
