A few months ago I bought a Ruger M77 hawkeye in .270 win. I have no complains about the rifle. It is accurate enough, light and good looking. Beautiful mountain rifle. However, much to my surprise, last time I checked it, I found a thin discolored line running down the barrel some inches from the barrel crown. I suspect that this is due to carelessness of mine as maybe some of the Nitro Solvent (outers) used to clean the bore spilled from the barrel and wasn’t rubbed out soon enough.

It’s not a big deal but I’ve never seen before bluing being deteriorated so easily from any other rifle I ever owned and cleaned. Maybe Ruger guys should improve quality standards while bluing barrels and other metal parts of a gun.

solvant

Iv'e used solvants to clean rifles inside and out. I have some rifles over 50 yrs old, bluing still looks great, More newer rifles no problem either. Call Ruger or send them an e-mail about the proble. However I do oil bbl on the inside and out side when done cleaning.
