Up for sale is a Ruger No.1 45-70
I have not fired the rifle.
It has a 26” barrel
Has the rings with it.
Has the original box.
it will come with a 1-4 power Nikon African with a 1” tube #4 reticle. The tube is pinched ahead of the front lenses. The glass is not cracked. I took this scope as part of a purchase, it came off a 338 Marlin, the original owner claimed he did not know it was pinched. It has been mounted and shot on one of my other 45-70’s. It held the zero with no problem
Price is $1800 shipped.
Payment by certified bank check or postal money order.
Shipping will be from my FFL to your FFL in the lower 48.

Can you show the end flap of the box?

I have never seen this vintage No 1 45-70 with a 26" barrel...Just the Lyman commemorative.

Wondering if it is a re-barrel?

No it is not a rebarrel. Ruger model 11365
It is a Lipsey's special run. The barrel is a C weight. Ruger made around 250 of these rifles for Lipsey's.
 
Wonderful - thanks for the education.
 
This rifle should be sold!

If I had the smallest hole to fit it in, I would have bought it yesterday once I knew it was a Lipsey's.

@Bullthrower338 I bet you don't have one of these!! :)

Buy it Tarbe and store it underneath your bed! Loaded! LOL
 
Buddy, I already have loaded rifles under the bed, next to the bed....

:)
Now that you are well established in rural Missouri, you need one for the gunrack in your truck. Why do you think Missouri is called the "Show me" state????

I would need arms like Wilt Chamberlain to use the traditional truck rack...it is a LOOONG way back to the window on a MegaCab!

Maybe one that holds a rifle on the top of the dash? Good use for the Ruger American.

That or I get a Hillbilly special regular cab!
 
Sorry for the hijack...at least you are getting bumped to the top! :)

About Lon's Elephant hunts w/Tokoloshe? I hear Lon is battling cancer? What is his long term prognosis? I am already booked to hunt Africa in 2024 2025. Might consider 2026 for another African hunt. I want to hunt a more wild open region devoid of civilization. Concern is the risk that I book f/2026 then find poor Lon has passed on? Does Lon have any assistance to carry on the business in his absence?

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex

Are you still looking for a 375 H&H?
