Allure of the Ruger No1

Someone else who gets Bill Ruger's vision:


Though a rail and scout scope would be nice...
I think that would be perfect in a .458WM or possibly a .375. Bam flop on most things lighter than DG. Most exciting.
It is short enough that maybe the point is to hand it to the quarry and just ask them "to do the right thing".

OK, back to the adult programing...
I was looking at the Renner Light African on his website and i saw this as well, anyone have experience mounting this on a Ruger no1? I'd like it primarily for the looks on my current stock 270 Win.


Thinking of asking a gunsmith here to do something similar like the Renner modifications. Just unsure if I not hold out to find a 7x57 first.
@VertigoBE that's the safety that the tang sight has been mounted to.
My concerns: The sight has to stay up while the gun is loaded or it looks like it may scratch the frame. In the down position it looks like a soup sandwich to get purchase on. The added leverage making it easier to inadvertently disengage the safety in the up position is not something I'd want either. Lastly, if you were having concerns about ejection before with the stock safety this does absolutely nothing but make the situation worse.
Hello everyone, new member, English is not my first language so apologise in advance. I have found myself really fascinated by the Ruger nr 1 and have purchased a used one in 270 win.

In Europe you have to remove a vital part from a weapon and put in a different checked bag when flying. With a bolt-rifle that is easy, but What would you suggest to do with regards to a nr 1?
What about just fit a trigger lock?
Not mine btw nor am I associated in any way with the seller or the site.....other than being a victim of the site.

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
