View Full Version : New Ruger #1

January 27, 2006, 09:17 PM
I have been wanting a #1 for close to 10 yrs. now. I finally got off of my duff and got one. I came across a Winchester High Wall in .300 WSM w/Leupold 50MM 3.5-10 scope today for $1199. Couldn't bring myself to buy it.

A little more looking and I came across a Ruger #1B in .300 Win. Mag w/Leupold 3-9 for $695.

This gun is immaculate!!!

Put it on layaway!!!

SO..........I finally got it..........congradulations to me!!!

Congrats on a classy rifle! I came close to buying a No.1 on a few occasions. One was a 45-70 with incredible wood , looked like something on a custom job. Decided to walk around the show and come back later , when I did it was being sold and the guy was filling out the paperwork:(

The second , was a 22-250 at an estate auction - was eventually sold for a little more than I was willing to part with that day!

Good luck with yours:)

Yep I did!!!

That purchase was being on the phone at the right time. I was looking at a Winchester High-Wall in .300 WSM w/Leupold 3.5-10 50MM for $1199. I couldn't bring myself to purchase that rifle. I called Ace since they have always treated me right and they told me that they had the Ruger #1 in. I have wanted a #1 for close to 10 yrs. now.

On the up-note......Ace still has a used #1 in 7MM Rem Mag.!!!

Well congrats on the purchase. You'll have to let us know how it shoots when you finally get it off lay-away. Thanks for the heads up on the other #1 as well. Unfortunately I'm not a fan of the 7mm mag. The .300 is more my style.
