    I don't think there is anything quite so elegant as a well turned out No. 1 like those above. Outstanding.

    Possibly a single shot that cost 10-30 times more! Even then, not sure of a guarantee!

    This is my one & only Ruger #1...but it makes it more valuable, when you find people who share the same interests...

    I always wanted to have an "International" in 7x57, but there is no chance to find one.

    Those few who have one, do not sell it....

    Red Leg, those are some beautiful guns. Were all of them "done" by Heym, or just the 7x 65R?

    I really like the No. 1. When I was telling my Father how much I liked mine he let me finish talking then asked me "Why the hell do you want a 100 year old design?".

    Because it works! A fine gun, like a fine woman tends to get better with age and we as men will never stop looking at either. I did finally decide I can afford a shiny new rifle, not a shiney 20 year old blonde.

    To summarize Pondoro Taylor, he looked forward to the day when they fixed the dreadful single shot Gibbs farquarson extractor so they could ban those unfair and uncivilized bolt rifles for African sport.

    Fast forward another 35 years and Bill Ruger did fix the extractor flaw.

    Your move hunting community.

    Don't get me wrong I couldn't agree more on the rifle part; as far as an old warhorse, not so much.

    It's a .308 Winchester.

    I bought it for cheap, because it did not shoot very well.

    A gunsmith fixed it.

    I asked the gunsmith, what he did, and he said: "I will never tell!"

    I am happy with it.

    Translation: relieved the wood inside the fore end and torqued the screw properly!

    Cabelas has the Ruger #1 on sale right now in a variety of calibers from 22-250 up to 416..... $999. Don't know if that is a real bargain or not. Just noticed it.
