Did this video help you?

Doug Malone: Is it possible to get a larger clip?

HugoStiglitz: Be careful when ordering one through an on line dealer. The gun I received was blued, not stainless. I did not even know it existed...thought I was getting stainless. Ruger's website only indicates one model with a stainless barrel.

9gibsonlespaul: does anyone make a .357 carbine with a tube mag and synthetic stock?

Revolver Den: Jeff, Next time you talk to any Ruger reps., mention the idea of this 77/357 model in a Takedown version. I'd be all over one of those!

dopeofthepope: I like that flag. "Come and take it" - up to peoples imagination if the bullet or the gun. lol

Gary Woodard: Glad to see you bolt with your right hand, I was wondering if it was still as smooth.

Appolo Geticks: I wonder why they don't or won't make these carbines in semi auto?

Gary Rumer: That is a handsome rifle. A good little brush gun where the range is short and anything from whitetails on down.

angelodzn07: Hey I was wondering if the magazine would fit in a pistol mag pouch

Gunblastdotcom: Yes I can, and it feeds very well. Jeff

Nox Aternum: Correct me if I'm wrong, but this gun takes a magazine, not a clip.

Gunblastdotcom: Yes.

Gunblastdotcom: To me, it felt much lighter than the hit on the shoulder from a 30-30 carbine. From looking at the numbers, the felt recoil should be more than it is, but even shooting long sessions from the bench, the little Ruger just causes no pain at all. jeff

Gunblastdotcom: I did realize that, and thanks!

slag2099: they need to make 1 in 500 s&w or 460 s&w

Gunblastdotcom: I don't think so, but have not tried it. Jeff

Gunblastdotcom: I do not. Jeff

Gunblastdotcom: It depends upon what you prefer. Both are good, and each is just a different method of getting the cartridge from the magazine into the chamber. Jeff

JW's BulletsNBlades: Great vid as normal.

BulletArc47: I had this rifle and I was thoroughly disappointed by it. Out of the box it had a very rough action, wouldn't chamber anything other than FMJs and JHPs and later it developed an ejection problem. Sent it to Ruger and they fixed the ejections problems and replace the extractor. It also had issues with cartridges getting stuck in the magazine regardless of which magazine I used. In my humble opinion: I would buy some other type of pistol caliber repeater if you want one.

Kench Maker: @Gunblastdotcom thank you, I like that rifle so i can share ammo with my S&W 686 357 mag, same ammo to carry with. thank you for the response. ken :)

Blake Porter: @FAZER00432 Nothing left. Even a .22mag or .17hmr does a ton of damage to a rabbit

nbenicewicz: What a coincidence, I was on Ruger's website today looking for the BX-25 magazines and I saw this interesting rifle. Now not too much later one of my subscriptions posts a video review. What are the muzzle ballistics like?

Nox Aternum: Yeah, I've met some really help and supportive experienced shooters, people who've been shooting for decades and have a real passion for the sport. One of the saddest things is that these people have been demonized in the media and the mainstream consciousness, either as being bloodthirsty hunter types or as being gun toting nutters, neither of which is true and is so far from my experience of shooters. Out of interest what do you shoot?

Gunblastdotcom: It is not. Jeff

Gunblastdotcom: Tell Ruger what you want. If they don't hear from customers, then they don't know what the customers are looking to buy. If you go on Ruger's web site, they have a page where you can contact the CEO, Mike Fifer. Mike personally reads each message. Boge

Doug Malone: Do you need a separate clip to fire .38 Special?

Gunblastdotcom: Current MSRP is $793. Street price would probably be in the $600-650 range.

BoxANT: Would be a great companion to a Ruger 357 revolver... very tempting.

sorichar: Any word on a left hander?

Gunblastdotcom: In a rifle, the 357 has a lot more power than when fired from a standard length revolver. jeff

GARYMANDIEVAN: That thing is nice Jeff

andrewsheldonreeves: It would be cooler if it was semi auto like the 10 22. That would be awesome for hunting boar.

Kench Maker: you have any idea how meters to kill a boar?

McNugget83: I LOVE my 77/357. For deer hunting, you can use it in shotgun territory (pistol caliber!) and mine loves the cheap Federal 158 grain JSP's from Wally's. I'm hitting 1.5"-2" @ 100 yds with these rounds. Would love the Trijicon, but still I'm completely satisfied with my Nikon Monarch African 1-4x variable, it fits this rifle like a glove, and on 1 power I enjoy shooting it both eyes open. I'll have to give the Buffalo Bore a shot... don't suppose anyone knows how they load them (powder/primers?:)

Gunblastdotcom: Direct from Sturm, Ruger in New Hampshire. Jeff

angusforbreakfast: @AssaultWeapons Me too

Gunblastdotcom: No - JHP is the type of bullet used, and +P indicates the power level of the load.

VicariousReality7: @67mustangreg What for, lol Just buy an 8 inch thompson contender

72darkf: I ghuess you suppose right. Knife issues getting closer in germany, too. Hell who knows there all this is going to end. If people want abuse something to harm others, they´ll find a way. Laws or not.

Neil Couey: Should be a good brush gun. Practical if you already have a .357 wheel gun.

Nox Aternum: Yeah there's no logic in any gun or other "weapons" laws, and even if there was I'd still disagree with them. So leverguns aren't legal in Holland/Netherlands? (my apologises I'm not sure of whats correct there). We can't legally, have pistols in much of the UK and so a lot of ex-pistol shooters moved onto pistol calibre carbine lever guns.

kwgunworks: Great longtime brother!! Keep up the good work! K&W Gunworks Delray beach, FL--- Smoke em if you got em!!!

spdrwlf: I have a .357 carbine, and I love it. It is good for plinking with the .38 and I love peoples reaction when they see the added power the longer barrel gives it. Much cheaper round for round than a 30-30, but within 100 yards will take as much meat....if you do your part. I also love my 30-30, 303 Brit and 30-06. How can more choice make things worse? Try 'em all.

JennGreg McRoberts: It's a very good rifle I never had a jam or MIS fire

harley anna: I just ordered one of these babies. Plan on putting a low power scope on it for my 12 year old daughter to take her first hog at close range. Using 158 grain hallow points. I'm tickled!

Papa.Emeritus.II: Sold! I'll take one! Now, to find one of these bad boys in North Dakota? I've waited a long time to consider buying a rifle, and, in my opinion, this rifle is best; IE: .357 mag, rifle, good all around gun. I was looking into many 22 mag rifles but felt like I wanted something a bit bigger but didn't want a large caliber centerfire rifle or big bore pistol. .357 mag load out of a bolt action rifle is really appealling too me.. I will surely be buying this rifle very soon! Any suggestions?

Tom Nelson: That's what I want when I add a rifle to my closet. I already have a 357 Mag revolver so this would be perfect for me. Thanks for this video.

Gunblastdotcom: Trijicon 1.25 to 4 power AccuPoint. See the referenced article for more info.

Gunblastdotcom: There is a chart in the referenced review.
