I'm under the impression they change the caliber offerings yearly.

I know just about everything is out there on the used market somewhere, but I'm wondering what 2015's offerings will be.

Nobody knows?

The Ruger No 1 product page had been edited down to only include the distributor exclusives. The other four are gone.

Will the new line be announced at SHOT?

I think we are seeing another design about to hit the end of its rope (production costs), the #1 sales have been in decline for years. There is a very small group of people who love these things (I'm one) and some are rabid.
Here is some information which may interest you and help educate your self on the # 1 Rugers.http://www.rugerforum.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=216537
ETA I see my computer skills are rather weak but I do the best I can , any way it puts you in the rifles, shotguns and carbine sub forum, if you spend some time in there there is a lot of information as well as pics of some very interesting #1 collections.

I really want a 30-06 in a simple configuration.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 8:56:48 PM EST
I hope they don't kill it. It's a classic, and it's a flagship that proves they can make nice guns.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:04:00 PM EST
I would love to have a #1, but I hear that accuracy is hit or miss.
Any confirmation of this?

If you want accuracy out-of-the-box the Ruger #1 ain't it.
I spent a lot of time on mine and it's now acceptable, but still not what I would call a "tack driver".
But if you want beautiful falling block right out-of-the-box then the #1 is most certainly in the running.

I'll never get rid of my Ruger #1B in 6mm Rem:

I have always heard that they are uniformly accurate.

Of course, "they" could be wrong.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:12:12 PM EST
All I know is I called this morning to send my single six in for some work and they said they aren't working on them now and to call back in June. I wasn't impressed.

Some shoot very well, some not so much. My sample of two a #1B chambered for the 7MM Mag and a #1 B chambered for the 300 Win Mag (both red pads) both easily stayed under an inch. Accuracy is not what drives #1 Freaks its all about the wood.

I think there should be a few bread and butter calibers Ruger always offers.

.45-70 shouldn't be an exclusive, and oddballs don't help sales.
Link Posted: 1/15/2015 11:21:39 AM EST
[Last Edit: 1/15/2015 11:24:05 AM EST by Typhoid70]
I bet the entire line goes to distributor exclusives

A lot of people just "collect" these, and the oddball calibers really make the market.


I just want them to make more red labels

This.

Selling point of the #1 has always been: strength.

They should bank on it. 45-70 and .458 should be no-brainers for Ruger.

Besides, buyers do not use the words ".458/45-70" in the same sentence with "tac-driver" or "match caliber."

The same reason people "like" Boeing 727s and DC-10s even though modern twin jets are safer and more efficient.

The same reason a drive in a classic car with no radio, AC or power anything can put a smile on your face even though you have a 2013 Accord in the driveway.

The same reason people will pay 20 or 30 dollars for a book that really resonates with them, when it's available on kindle for 99 cents.

And so on and so on.

The 2015 #1's will be sold exclusively by Lipseys as per Jason @Lipseys post on Ruger forum
Hey Guys,

Just wanted to give you an update on the status of Number 1's for 2015. Lipsey's will be the exclusive distributor for all Number 1 rifles. We have committed to taking all their production so Number 1's are alive and well! We are slated to have 6 models for this year. I am waiting on confirmation on the calibers to make sure they are a go, and once I get that I will post that info here first. We decided to go with a mix of standard and classic calibers. If all goes well, we might even have a couple of calibers that haven't been done before in Number 1's. Some new twist on standard configurations as well. Once I get some firm product info, I will post all the stock numbers, etc.

Thanks,
Jason

Here is the list
Ok guys here is what I know for sure:

1A blue & walnut 22" 7mm-08

1S blue & walnut 24" 30-06

1B blue & walnut 28" 257 Weatherby Mag

1H blue & walnut 24" 375 H&H Mag

K1V stainless & walnut 26" 223 Rem 1 in 8" twist

Waiting for final spec on the RSI but either way you guys will be happy.

Can you please tell Ruger to chamber one in .218 Bee?
Link Posted: 1/15/2015 7:24:11 PM EST
Davidson's (Gallery of Guns) has 6 different No. 1's in stock right now:
Calibers and Quantities
257 Roberts, 19
280 Rem, 7
450/400 Nitro Express, 5
9.3x62, 3
9.3x74R, 50
220 Swift, 5

That's 89 No. 1's, but 50 of them are the 9.3x74R. I barely even know anything about this caliber, other than ME seems to be close to .45-70 Gov't loadings, and Hornady wants over $5/round for ammo.

No wonder Lipsey's is taking them all, I'm guessing Davidson's doesn't want any more, as they are overstocked on dogs.....

Some rounds have impressive ballistics. .45-70 has an impressive trajectory.

I think anyone looking to buy a Mauser based rifle in that price range with a Mannlicher stock is going to buy a CZ.

OoH Ooh ohh Mr Kotter -I got the answer.

A tip of the hat to the old time single shots

The ability to take most any size cartridge with any shape rim.

Great overall strength

With good wood (like Ruger does it ) great beauty

Yeah, the single shot hunting thing.

Not in any particular order and not for everyone

.30-06 makes sense, too.

If they had standard calibers that they always offered, .30-06 should be one of them.
Link Posted: 1/15/2015 10:03:02 PM EST
I had a Number 1 in .223 that could not regularly hit the ground if pointed straight down. But my 7x57 is reasonably accurate. And to mirror others I want one in .375HH. And I may have to have one in .30-06. For all the Ruger hate my M77 7x57 and M77 .257 Roberts are excellent and accurate rifles....for fudd guns.
