Dale Horvath (Jeffrey DeMunn) carries a what appears to be a Ruger M77 Hawkeye with a scope, he is seen with it in every episode usually slung over his back as he keeps watch over camp. Dale fires it on the walkers in Season 1 Episode 4, Vatos, during the attack and carries it to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC). In Season 1 Episode 6, TS-19, it looks as if T-Dog (IronE Singleton) is carrying the rifle as the group flees the CDC and even fires it at least once. In the Season 2 Episode 1, What Lies Ahead, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) stands guard with Dale's rifle while the rest of the group search for supplies around the car that had piled up on the highway. He observes Walkers through the scope and hides under a truck with the rifle before leaving it when he's forced to follow Sophia Peletier into the woods after she was chased by two walkers. Dale is later seen with it keeping watch on top of the RV while the group search the woods. In Season 2 Episode 5, Chupacabra, Andrea (Laurie Holden) takes watch on the RV with Dale's rifle but ends up shooting Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) on accident after mistaking him for a walker. T-Dog briefly carries it in Season 2's finale "Beside the dying fire". Rick and Carol use the rifle in season 3.
