    I am looking for a 375 Ruger in the Guide Gun with 20” barrel and muzzle brake/weight for a decent price. (I prefer to buy from a member rather than gunbroker.) I want the one with the ugly laminate stock preferably. I may would consider a 416 if it is an excellent deal, but prefer the 375.

    I would also consider the Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan with brake and 20" barrel also.

    Is the muzzle brake required? I have an Alaskan w/o the brake I’m looking to part with. PM me if you’re interested.

    Not yet. None of them have a brake, but it’s still possible that I will take one of the two offers. Both parties are offering a fair deal, just not exactly what I’m looking for. I’ve also located one other like I want, just a bit more than I really prefer to pay for a used rifle. If anyone has the guide gun with brake/matched muzzle weight and 20” barrel, please contact me soon. I’m getting antsy and will almost certainly buy something by Monday, possibly this weekend.

    I have a 375 Alaskan with the brake and hogue stock. That I would sell but I also have about 25 boxes of factory Hornady ammo that would have to go with the rifle

    I appreciate the offer, but I couldn’t probably afford the ammo and all, even with a great deal. That’s a lot of ammo! Thank you for the offer and response though.

    will 416,

    the 375 typically does not have a brake, and..... you don't need one for the 375 ruger. if you can shoot a 338 win or a 300 win, you can shoot a 375 ruger.

    I don’t mind the recoil at all. I shoot my 416 Rigby quite alot and really enjoy it. It’s just one of those things that I really think is a cool idea (muzzle brake and dynamically matched muzzle weight). Also, if shooting from a bench, (without a crowd around and with use of ear protection) a brake can be pretty fun on longer strings of fire. I also hope to one day teach my son to shoot larger rifles and this could be a cool thing to ease him into it. I got my first 375 h&h when I was about 12 or 13 and it was a wonderful thing. Nice buffalo by the way, 1dirthawker.

    To everyone who responded and to those who offered theirs up for sale, I want to say thank you. I recently purchased one exactly like I was looking for. Those that offered, you should have no problem selling them at those prices on this site. Thanks again.
