    I have a M77RPmk2 in 7.62x39, model # 07973. It is a high polish blue, 22 inch light contour barrel, with the zytel stock. I know it is a limited run rifle; I believe from Davidson's.

    Does anyone know the production figures for this rifle, and its relative rarity? It's 98% with box, receipts, etc. It is a shooter for me-not interested in selling-just curious if anyone else has one, and your comments on same. Thanks.

    Hi
    If we are talking about the same gun according to RENE there was 1217 made for Davidsons. Does it have the wood inserts in the stock? I think there is some interest in that model. The last ones I have seen have been around the $600 mark.

    Mine was shipped WITHOUT the wood inserts. I bought it from a gun shop that I used to work at. I was told it was the only one they received. (From Davidson's, I believe). It is as shipped, with box, and receipts. I have shot it a few times with a Leupold 3x9 on top.....

    My boss had a stainless version of the same rifle he bought several years earlier. That one DID have the wood inserts. I shot his rifle numerous times. That is what peaked my interest. When those rifles became available in blue, I snatched one up!

    It is S/N 788-400XX. My receipt is dated 3-27-2001

    Thanks for all your help on this.

    Regards,

    Sorry I didn't recognize this thread before... If I'm reading correctly, looks like your model #07973 shipped 62, and my model #07982 shipped 166.

    That's an encouraging number! Even a blind squirrel stumbles across an acorn every now & again. I kinda bought this on a whim not knowing what the heck I was looking at for 475 OTD unfired in the box with all the paperwork, so I guess it's alright. I saw the Davidson's card and figured it was a ltd run of some sort. Got my RENE now so I'll be making more educated decisions in the future! (Thanks Chad & Bill!)

    Do you still have this gun?

    Is it for sale?

    If so, I would be interested in talking to you.

    Thanks,
