    New to forum/ My name is Tom and I was looking for info on a limited production gun that I have. I know its made in 1991 by Ruger 780 prefix # 471xx M77 mark 11,synt stock, stainless barrel, with rose wood inlay in the stock in the 7.62 x 39 cal. I called Ruger to ask questions on anything I could find- The would only tell me that it was a limited production that was never listed in a catalog for sale , but would not tell how many,value, or how collectable. at this point i dont beleave it has ever been shot. and the debate it should I just put it away or use it, being I dont normally own a gun that I havnt shot.Ruger told me to look here for the Answers so I will leave it up to the pro's. Thanks for looking and a speical thanks for answers Tom D.

    Tom,
    Welcome to the RCA forum. You have a nice rifle, but I don't think I can tell you anymore than your already know about your 7.62x39. I think I would shoot it and enjoy it! While maybe of collecting interest, it does not have a premium on it of any significant amount.

    kinda my thought, I have about $600 invested. but to have a bolt in 7.62x39 is a slower but nice pace to plink than my sks. I take it that there is no way forsure to know how many of these was put into production? and Why wont Ruger put out the info?

    It has been the Company policy forever to not disclose how many of any particular model were produced. At least, in the No.1 rifle, which I am most familiar with, it is most likely that they don't know. It is not part of their record keeping system and to reconstruct later takes non productive time! On the other hand, if the limited production firearm was a Distributor Exclusive, then the distributor often knows how many they ordered, and received, and will publicize that info. I thin your rifle may have been a Distributor Exclusive, but I don't know who.

    After a little more research I have found that the gun was limited to a run of 299 units. I contacted Lipsey's that confirmed most was distributed To Davison's. and also put me in contact with the writer of the Red Eagle News- After talking to The Red Eagle- He informed me that he had the Prototype in the .223 model and has the display Case. Value has not really been set but a range maybe between 700 and 900. most all said shooting should not hurt. But Dave H. From the Red Eagle News said it would be best to put it away. I dont think I will be able to help myself. My trigger finger is getting itchy. lol - I will continue to post input as I find out more. thanks Tom D.
