Ruger's stainless steel Hawkeye Alaskan bolt action rifle is a wet weather variation of the M77 Hawkeye African with a non-slip, rubber black Hogue OverMolded stock. Its rugged V-notch, express style rear and large white bead front sights allow for fast, reliable target acquisition. A non-rotating, Mauser type controlled feed extractor is the heart of the most positive case extraction system ever invented, and the Alaskan's fixed blade type ejector positively ejects the empty cases as the bolt is moved fully rearward. Hinged steel floor plate, with Ruger logo, features patented latch flush with trigger guard to avoid accidental dumping of cartridges while allowing quick unloading of the magazine. Patented integral scope rings that attach directly to the precision machined receiver to eliminate a source of looseness and inaccuracy are included at no additional charge. Easily accessible three-position safety allows shooters to lock the bolt or to load and unload with the safety on.
