I have my fathers Ruger M77-7mm Mag Tang Safety rifle he hunted with. I would like to get a new stock for it and would really like this rifle to look good when it’s done. I was looking at Boyd’s and wanted to know - I see it says drop in but is there any minor fitting with these stocks? Or are they pretty close to OEM? I’d love to find a clean Circassian Ruger factory stock for this gun. But that hasn’t happened.

My 30-06 was a drop in. Only issue was after about ten rounds it quit firing. The main trigger pin had moved to one side, the interior inletting was wider than the factory stock. I glued a shim made from a paint stirring stick to take up the gap and it’s worked fine every since.

How bad is the stock you have now? If possible a refinish and recut the checkering may give a better than new look. I have had some tangers that when refinished showed very nice grain and color. The factory finish tends to hide the grain.
Also a thought is if the stock is still serviceable you can use it as is, those stock scars tell your Dads hunting stories.

I bought a new Ruger factory stock for my M77 tang 30-06 about 5 months ago from numeric harms gun parts, stock was complete.

I bought a Boyd’s for a short action. I had to make few strokes with a rasp to increase the clearance to turn the bolt handle down. No other issues.

They don’t list one for a 7mm mag/Tang safety
