Is an NIB Ruger No1 in .22Hornet for $699 a good deal?

Great deal if its a 1B. If it is a 1A you might be onto the 'Steal of the Decade". #3s are also pretty nice.

Good buy if the rifle's condition is actually "NIB"... and if you can accept the range limitations of a .22 Hornet which is a 150 yard cartridge.

I do not think so. The typical No.1 does not sell well to the masses. I think if you gave 700, you might want to keep it a while before thinking of reselling, just my opinion. If it is going to be a keeper, then who knows but you. Gun sales can act funny, sometimes the lack of availablity influences numbers; sometimes not.

Take a look at the gun e-sites to see supposed selling prices, note that all that sell are not all completed sales. Sales numbers, values vary greatly by area. In my area, if one took that to a local shop or show, the offers would be around 1/2 to 2/3 of your number depending on cash/tradein. Just what I have experienced, so I keep them for donors.

That past four that I have purchased, none were over 500, all hornets for what that is worth. Perhaps the values are better where you are at.

It would be difficult to see much more than 500.

redz06,

The last four #1 Hornets you bought NIB cost you under $500? Do you live in the slums of Albania? Or did you buy them in 1980?

I cannot any longer find used and abused donor #1s for projects for that price, much less NIB models.

Also, the price offered by local shop owners is not what they charge when they resell them. The latter is the fair comparison point for this guy's query.

Its clear you have no use for the Hornet as is. You may be missing something. It makes a fine walking sroud short to mid renage varmint/plinking round and in a Ruger #1 gives me lots of muscle memory honing practice at a very low cost. And, Mule Deer counted his 1B Hornet among his ten favorite rifles a few years ago.

1B

1B,

I only have purchased 5 No.1 hornets in factory condition(recounted today). Three of them were purchased post 2000 new/preowned for 500 or less, the last two were purchased preowned last year, one for 450 and the other for 500 if that matters to you. Nice wood/metal, not beaters by any means.

I am not sure why you would have a comment about where anyone lives, some might take it the wrong way. It really is meaningless to most.

I have an appreciation for the Hornet, but with a custom barrel, mostly in the 17 and 22K varieties. I have not tried the Lil Gun powder yet in a standard hornet, but the net says it gives pretty good speed.

I agree trade in value is not much on a No.1, at least in some localities. To sell one is a little different on occasion, but you have to find the right new guy. I have read on other forums about buying no.1's. It seems to vary with region or occasion with some forums/posters.

I have no idea about whether the original poster or others like the No.1 hornet or not, he asked about pricing, and I tried to respond. I would be hesitant to give 500+ unless I did some research on sales in my area or just wanted the rifle which might be the case irregardless of price.

I saw a real nice one last week at a gunshow in Harrisonburg Va. Asking price was $750. Needless to say it never moved off the table.
