Meets spec but was expecting more.

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on August 24, 2013
Overall it'll do the job. Installation wasn't difficult but it got a bit tedious. First problem, the way the windage adjustment feature is setup makes for a difficult time squaring the rail to the barrel. Too many moving parts so getting that perfect alignment and tightening the bases was a tad bit of a struggle. Machining is not perfect and Blythe time I had set up my rail straight I noticed the bases were not set perfectly square on their bases...oh well. On the subject of machining my Trijicon QD mount would not slip on. The actual slits in the rail are slightly under spec and tight. Nothing wrong with the trijicon as I mounted onto several of my AR rails and foun no problems. I brought the mount to a machine shop and had a guy custom file and ground the slits to get perfect attachment of the QD mount. Overall it would be an even better products if it was machined with greater precision and QC at the factory. Get rid of the moving windage feature and have it set to its perfectly square on a 77 once it's installed. Other than its pretty neat and would still pick this over standard ruger rings which I think are kinda low end and limiting for both the gun and the shooter.
Pros: Requires no gun smithing or special tools
Cons: Machining not perfect, certain qd mounts would not slip right on, adjusting the windbags features was tedious just to get the base straight along barrel...
Would recommend: Yes

M77 MkII Picatinny Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 22, 2012
RugerR Comments helped.
you look closely at a Ruger scope ring, you will see a bevel on the tightening lug side the mounts on the receiver.
Also the recoil lug needs fitting.
Ruger needs to supply better mounts for their guns. Ruger was no help on this.
Optics Planet and Leather Wood were a help.
Pros: It is the only mount that works good with a M77 and a Aries 390 night scope
Cons: It took a little work to make it fit down tite...

M77 MkII Picatinny Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 17, 2011
I got this instead of getting my reciever drilled and tapped...I worked for hours to get it all to fit and after 30 shots of 300wm the soft metal of the mount had dented where it was supposed to tighten so my scope went all floppy. This might work well on a light recoil rifle but now I have to get rid of this thing to do it the right way. They are discontinued for a reason.
Pros: looks cool
Cons: hard to set up, cheap for $100...

*Review Update*

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 14, 2009
*This is an update to my previous review.
After a few months of trying to contact Leatherwood and Hi-Lux Inc., they sent me a new and improved front mounting base that fits. It is narrower and allows the screws to do their job, tighten and secure the front base. Next, if you look closely at a Ruger scope ring, you will see a bevel on the tightening lug side the mounts on the receiver. The Leatherwood rear base does not have a bevel. I ground it off with my Dremel tool to mirror the Rugers base and everything fits tight and flat. The way it should be. Mounted a scope, bore sighted and zeroed.
That's the fix that worked in my situation.
Pros: Now it works!
Cons: Took some time and improvisation...
Would recommend: Yes

Don't if.....

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 14, 2009
If you plan on installing this base on an older Ruger M-77 with a tang safety, don't buy it. It won't work. It must be made for the newer M-77 models but it is not mentioned in the product description.
Product support didn't even answer my emails about this. You're on your own.
Pros: None
Cons: Everything...
Would recommend: No
