Nice battery of No. 1s!

I just traded for a 1-S in .338 WM--any idea how many were made? I cannot recall seeing another No. 1 with an AH fore end and a 26-inch barrel.

The 1S in .338 WM is probably the most desirable of the cataloged 1S calibers, the others being the 7mm RM and the .300 WM. No one knows how many were made, but the .338 was in the catalog for a shorter period of time, as compared to the other two, which were first cataloged in 1970. All 3 of these calibers are now discontinued; I believe the newly cataloged .300 H&H is now the only 26" barrel 1S now available. Several 22" barreled calibers are now in the lineup, including the .338 RCM.
Great elk rifle!

Man, I could get hooked on #1s too if I didn't still have such hate for Bill Ruger.

Beautiful guns! Though for whatever reason, teh SS ones just don't do it for me and normally I"m a McMillan/SS guy on bolts.

I have no love nor hatred for Bill Ruger, but do appreciate his contribution to the revival of classic designs for pistols and rifles during the era when every manufacturer was trying to imitate Roy Weatherby at 1/3 to 1/4 the price. Just curious, what is your beef with him? (FWIW, I do know a fair number of folks in Arizona that used to take issue with his politics...)

The man sided with the antigunners in one of the assault weapons bills on mag capacity... instead of fight, he made all his mags down to 10 voluntarily, and then lobbied RE the definition of assault rifle so that his mini 14s were not touched. Simple and pure greed rather than fight IMHO. He could have done what the others did, amend their products after the fact after he had lost the battle.

I just dont' stomach a man like that in the firearms business. Stand up for your principles. If your principles are like Zumbos, well I dont watch, read or support that ass and never will again. I won't buy new rugers as such, even though I'd love a few red labels. In fact after that fiasco I have only gotten a used #1 and that was a gift, I just refuse. Same like... I think it was Coopers.. won't buy them, though maybe they have been sold to a pro gunner now.... I don't recall but I never had a cooper on my list anyway so no loss to them I suspect.

Pisses me off everytime I see a ruger somewhere. Or think about em. And to think one of my goals was to have one of every caliber 77 ever made. Glad I hadn't started that quite yet...

As to his designs... yep, love the #1. The SA's I can do with or without, I love the Mk1/2s semi auto little 22 pistols. I love the red labels. I loved the 77s, until I realized that they simply were nice looking but a PITA to bed IMHO, and didn't shoot that well generally, especially their failure at the palma businesss.

Mostly though its my chip on my shoulder for the above reasons and no one else need feel that way.

I am sorry for the thread digression... I can't help myself with him.

I've read rost495's ignorant and misguided BULLSHIT before. It's the same old, tired, hackneyed horseshit rant regarding statements -- taken out of context -- that Bill Ruger -- an individual who has now been deceased for some years -- made referencing magazine limits. Rost495 doesn't know what in the f*ck he's talking about, much less what point he thinks he's making, doesn't own and likely could never afford a No. 1 in the first place, and commands no influence or respect beyond the ability to prove he can access an internet message board and post moronic ramblings that would -- in any other environment -- be roundly shouted down and castigated for the childish drivel they are. He is a sad little person who seems frustrated by the realization that he has so, so little to offer any discussion or group.
