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!

Thanks! Anyone else? Looking mainly for accuracy work, trigger jobs, rebarreling/rechambering, restocking, etc.
By that it sounds like you don't like the Ruger No.1 very well.o_O:rolleyes:

Did you just purchase a action and need the rest?

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...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
