Greetings! I'm considering having some work done on one of my Ruger #1 rifles and was wondering if anyone had a U.S. -based rifle-smith they could recommend; perhaps someone who specializes in the Ruger #1. Many Thanks!
Don't try and find anyone to help you on the accuracy of a #1, they are quite finicky in what they like to shoot and how you do it. I have a number of them and just a slight turn of the for-end screw will throw the accuracy off quite a bit. But once you have found the load and the screw tension you will have a fantastic shooting rifle.
Two of my #1's will shoot sub moa at 400 yards all day long. But it took me a long time to get them there.
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
