New and improved.

I enjoyed Wayne van Zwoll's treatment of the Ruger Hawkeye ("Proof House," December 2009) but noted he failed to mention two of what are, to me, the finer of the many "substantive improvements" to the M77 platform, namely the recoil pad and the bottom metal. The thin buttpad, while unchanged in profile, is of a much more forgiving and comfortable composition. Likewise, the bottom metal is now steel, slimmer and light years ahead of the old alloy units in providing a superior fit, feel and appearance. I've lost count of the number of various Winchesters, Remingtons, Sakos, etc. that I've tried over the years in my search for the ideal bolt-action sporter, but with the new Hawkeye I see no reason to continue the search.
