I attended the Great Falls gunshow over the weekend and found a couple No. 1's that I decided I needed...

The first one I found is a 131 prefixed 1B in .280 Rem. I never really drank the .280 koolaid, but it has decent wood and is marked .280 Rem or 7mm Exp. It also came with a set of off-set rings, and for $725 I figured I should add it to the collection.

The second is an RSI in .270 Win that has better than decent wood. I own plenty of
No. 1's, but I've never had an RSI before. I figure that I should remedy that situation and traded a pistol that I never used anyway. I found a nice old Leupold M7 3x with a little purpling that matches the receiver nicely. Mounted it up with a set of low rings and it really looks good!

I will try to get some pictures posted up later.

That's a good deal on the .280! Looking forward to seeing the photos.

That is a really good deal! I've been offered considerably more for mine.Have only seen one other in many years of gun shows but it looked like it was a truck gun.

Todd,

I have only seen three #1's in .280 Rem. Two of them were the double stamped ones. (7mm Rem Exp or .280 Rem) I owned one and my buddy owns the other... smile

A couple of years ago, I was "thinning the herd" and sold almost all of my 1-B's. My reasoning was that they were too long and too heavy... I sold mine on GUNBROKER for $925 (IIRC). So I'd say you did well on yours... Incicently, mine was serial #132-403xx... I bought it in 1995. I figure on replacing it with a #1-AH in 7x65R. smile (In fact, I already have dies and 5 boxes of factory fodder and 100 pcs of brass... smile )

I can't seem to get my photobucket account to sync up with my smart phone. It's driving me batty! I can't get my pictures rotated, so you will have to forgive me.

Here is the little RSI in .270 Win. Pretty nice wood, and in really good shape!

have just about had it with this phone AND photobucket! Here is a pic of the .280 Rem. I'm trying to post a shot of the caliber stamping, but I'm failing miserably!

Turn your phone upside down? (Where there ie a will, there is a way.) I have looked at a lot of guns upside down. They look the same rotated 180. LOL, jack
