Since 2010, Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. has been working with GunBroker.com to auction off rare, commemorative, discontinued or one-of-a-kind Ruger firearms.

On Feb. 27, 2013, Ruger will launch its 100th auction with GunBroker.com, and is celebrating this milestone by auctioning off a Ruger M77 Hawkeye Alaskan Rifle previously owned by President and CEO Mike Fifer. All Ruger auction proceeds are donated to charity, with over $176,000 raised thus far. This commemorative auction will benefit HAVA (Honored American Veterans Afield).

Mike Fifer used this rugged, big-game rifle on a brown bear hunt on the Alaska Peninsula in May 2010 where he successfully harvested a large 8-foot, 10.5-inch brown bear. Ruger Senior Sales Manager Randell Pence, hunting guide Bob Lacher and videographer Danny Dodge accompanied Fifer on this hunt.

This exciting adventure was featured on an episode of the television show “Ruger's Adventures,” and has been documented in a photo book created by Fifer. The winning bidder will also receive an autographed copy of this book, along with the same Burris scope used during the hunt and a Ruger-branded rifle case.
