Featured Gun – Ruger No. 1 For Sale
What Makes The Ruger No. 1 Special?
The No. 1 uses a completely modern but classic-looking Farquharson-style hammerless, falling-block action. This action has exceptional strength.
The Ruger No. 1 chambered in .300 Weatherby Magnum is a fine choice for elk hunting and other big game.
Famed gun reviewer, Hickock45, had this to say about the No. 1, “I have admired the Ruger No. 1 for a quarter of a century … They’re classic. They’re revered. They’re a very strong rifle. They’re a pretty rifle. They’re well-made. They’re sturdy, durable. They’re a handy size.” He went on, “Just like with a shotgun … because the barrel comes back so far into the firearm, you can have a fairly long barrel … You can get a long barrel, hence, more velocity with a shorter overall firearm … ” He concluded, “There’s something about a single-shot, the mystique of it. I don’t know how many of you have experienced that …” (Ruger No. 1 in .375 H&H Magnum).
Why Do You Need THIS Gun?
The barreled action is finished in a polished, deep blue, and the satin-finished walnut stock is hand checkered in a borderless pattern.
This one also features a Millett 3-9×44 rifle scope. The classic rifle, scope and .300 Weatherby Magnum create a set-up any operator would be glad to shoot.
“Ballistically, the .300 Wby. need bow to none: 180-grain bullets exit the muzzle at 3,200 fps or more and carry over 4,000 ft.-lbs. of energy,” (Petersenhunting.com).
Hickock45 went on to say, “They’re kind of collectable, because they’re hard to get. If you decided you wanted one in this cartridge or in a .308 or whatever it is, today, and you started looking around, you’d probably have a hard time finding one. You might find it, but it’d be kind of random.”
