10 G, That's interesting.

After I got my Tikka T 3 Lite in 270 W, I 'kinda' thot it kicked AS much as my syn 7 RM. Next time out I took both and shot them back to back. NO it does not kick as much. I still have my syn 7 mag and like it. Killed a buck w/it a couple of seasons back.

The Ruger 77 is a 'mirror image' of the 98 but I'm not sure about how close the fit might be.

Does anyone -- know if that swap would work ?

Not sure how practical it would be to modify the stock, but the angled front action screw of the Rugers would need some work.

So you've never owned one, but have posted three times on this thread?

Good grief.

The reason they suck so badly is how they handle recoil, not how they look. If you'd owned one you would know that.


You're not kidding. I was out at the range a couple weeks ago with a boat paddle 7mm Rem Mag and a 300 WBY. The 300 isn't a heavy gun by any means.

After switching back and forth between the two, I decided the 300 shooting 180's at 3200 was preferable to the 7mm shooting 140's at 3150. 100% stock design.

BINGO ! I totally agree. That's something that didn't cross my mind. I'm certain it would NOT be a drop in AND
I wouldn't attempt to modify that stock.

From P 3 per Coyote Hunter:
"Yes C H, I've seen your pic before and noticed the 'studs' and ALSO have seen 1 or a few others similar. I have seen and handled them at Gun Shows and still like the looks." smile

My hunting pard that is 68 with health issues, bought a Boat Paddle some yrs. back. Another member of his lease bugged and bugged him till my friend put a high price on it. The other guy whipped out his check book and bought it on the spot. shocked --Beauty is in the eye....

The Boat Paddle stock Ruger to me is LIKE the Rem. Mountain Rifle. I always liked its looks and slim design. Can't say why I never bought one confused-----maybe too many others already ???

I'm STILL trying to talk myself out of getting one. smirk

I had one in '06 with rifle sights. The stock was horrible! Skinny on top of the comb, it was like getting karate chopped in the face every time.
I ended up putting it in a Boyd's black pepper laminate, waaaayyyyy better! A friend of mine wanted it more than I did, so away it went. No loss by me. I have an '03A3 that replaced it quickly.

Thanks, Tom

Well the Boat Paddle is ON the back burner......

I looked at a Harley Electra Glide - DECKED out - passenger seat-backrest-arm rest, etc. = 12 Boat Paddles

I have to check it out FIRST.

Talked to a guy at a gas station a couple weeks ago. He had a beautiful Harley. Said he paid about $20K for it. Then he revealed he had about $30K in it at the time with the chrome and other upgrades he had added.

Might want to adjust your boat paddle math accordingly. smile

C H, I understand, however in my case right now...

both the boat paddle and Harley are USED. I'm going on asking prices today.

I'll be checking the Electra Glide out tomorrow or Tuesday. It's gorgeous, with lots of xtras. I'm a little skeptical but haven't HEARD it run or ridden it yet. I'll update when I know more.

Jerry

ps: forgot to say, PhotoPUKIT is holding my pix hostage. I have 2-3 pix on my phone today of H D and probably will open imgur account SOON !

I've been busier than a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. I've been gone from home more than I've been here.

My PLANS are to open an imgur account and load pix ASAP.
