I have run across 2 M77 stainless boat paddle stock rifles. One is 7mm Mag the other is 338 Win Mag. 7mm has rings and cheap scope ,the 338 does not have rings. Both in excellent condition. I dont need either but the 338 is getting my eye .I figure it will be a big brother to my boat paddle 243. I have not gotten a price yet but would like some real ideas of value. Thanks Paul

I’ve accumulated a number of them ever since my first one I bought new in 1995. 7mag and 270 tend to go cheaper than other calibers. 338 mag brings more but not as high as many others. Just a couple years ago they were $600-900 unless with box, then $1000-1200. Now it’s rare to find any of them for less than $1000 and it’s usually a 7mag. Rings are cheap so I wouldn’t worry much about that.

Unique guns but not fun too shoot. Kicks like a mule with the original butt. I’m scared to pull the trigger on my 338 mag... 😂

Right now the darn things are bringing crazy money on GB. Hard to find one under 1500 bucks no matter what the caliber.

That's some high grade plastic ! Ruger made those stocks for around $12 when they made them .The 338 does kick like crazy with that stock .I put a laminated stock on mine and it was way more accurate and nice to shoot .

I have had two boat paddles in 77 a 338 win mag and a 264 win mag .I hated shooting both of them .I changed to a laminated stock on the 338 win mag and it shot way better and easier .The accuracy was excellent 3/4 inch at 200yards with the 338 win mag .The 264 win mag I put the ruger regular stock on but wanted to put a real ruger wood stock on it .It shoots awesome with lapua bullets .I put the regular plastic stock on the 264 .
