Ruger No. 1-H .450/.400 Nitro Express 3” (Model 11385). This is the rare version with the heavyweight 24 inch “D” contour barrel. It weighs 9.32 pounds without scope or rings. It was shot prior to my purchase but I never fired it. It has one nick in the checkering on the right side of the fore end, but it is otherwise in like new condition. There are no box, papers, or rings.

Price is $1,100 plus shipping.

These are nice rifles,and you have a VERY good price on yours. a couple years ago I purchased the same model and restocked in in high grade english walnut. Some one will get a great rifle that can hunt anything that walks the planet.

How’s the kick on this? I’ve heard the No 1’s are a little light for the bigger calibers

Very nice rifle, there are several you tube videos of this same type and calibre being shot, see the Hornady clip showing Craig Boddington shooting it.

Exactly my thinking. What a cool and elegant buff rifle this would be.

Great deal and I wish I had the money.

If I hadn't just bought my 375 H&H No.1, this listing would already be marked sold. Excellent price on an excellent gun! I'm very surprised that it's still for sale. I'm very tempted, so please someone buy it, I've already spent too much $$$ in the last month.

Best regards,

Very good price for one of these rifles. I'm tempted even though I already have one.

You and me both. If I didn't have a Bison hunt in 3 weeks my kid would own this already. Good luck with the sale. I have one and love it.

Just wanted to verify that payment has been received and the rifle is sold, but the Boddington version is still for sale. Look here if interested.

Apologies, been somewhat preoccupied with (poor) health issues; were you interested in the Norma factory 550 grain Solid 450 Rigby ammo I mentioned?
