    Default Ruger #1 450-400

    Just left Gander Mt. in Winston- Salem NC. They have a used Ruger #1 in 450-400 NE for $999.00 doesn't that seem a little high ? Is a nice gun though. Just thought I'd throw a heads up in case someone is interested.

    Ruger #1 is a very reliable rifle with " The Class" and it's accuracy. I have owned two cal .375H&H. I have sold them after a couple of years just to get another kind of rifles ... Saw from Europe the price is good, not exceptionnal .. but good , if the rifle is closed to the "new" , I think it's a good bargain
    I dont know in your country , but here in Europa if you want this rifle cal 450-400 NE you must wait about 6 months to get it !!! and it's not sure you can get it !!
    It's a very good caliber, different than the .375H&H, but it's well suited with the #1. This is an african caliber, but not the #1 .. DG dislike this gun , cause "One shot" ... of course .. but I think for a non african use , it's a very,very interesting rifle !

    I just found it unusual for where I live. Here African caliber rifles are few and far between. You can easily get them if you order them, but, few and far between on the shelf. Also anything over 375 ammo is scarce. Here in North Carolina the .270 is very popular .

    You wont find many of those anywhere in the states, except by mail order or the net. I had the Ruger once, shot great, kicked the hell out of me and gave me recoil headache. I sold it when I got the CZ .404 Jeffery. Same power levels, kicked much less. I love the #1 rifle but not in the heavy kickers.

    I really want a double. I will probably end up with a Model 70. in 458. I like the 70 and am familiar with the rifle in lower calibers.
