Several years ago, I bought my first and only #1. A 7x57 international. This is a beautiful good shooting rifle in a classic cartridge. I would have continued to buy more except for one reason. No scoped #1 fits me. I have used off set rings and scopes with long focal length. I refuse to shorten the stock. I am 5'10'' and still have this problem, I wonder how many others do.

I'm about the same height as you. On my first No. 1 (.270 International) it didn't come with offset rings so ordered the pricey ones and put a Leupold VX-II 2-7 on it and it works ok. On my newest K1RSI in .308 I've found the Burris Timberline 4.5-14 x 32 with standard rings is working ok for me. Has a smaller front objective which is adjustable so the bell doesn't "bottom out", more magnification power than the Leupold, and more importantly the rear part of the tube is longer than on most scopes and with the eyepiece almost all the way back I can get good eye relief. Maybe something that might work for you too.

Forgot to mention if you do need the offset rings here's an affordable place to get them.

So are we agreed they are not being dropped?

And if so, then do we know what calibers will be produced in 2017? I may get one in Dec 2017 for myself for my birthday. I turn 60 this year. A No. 1 seems like a suitable present.

I used to own a No 1 in 22-250 with a Redfield Accu-range scope. It was a great rifle, wish I still had it!

Common issue with Number 1s. Even though most don't realize it, about everyone has to "crawl" the stock on a Number 1 to get a clean sight picture. While offset rings help, about the only "fix" I have seen is to use a less modern scope. Most older scopes have much more tube length behind the turrets than current offerings. Most scoped Number1s I have owned had older Redfields, Weavers and the like and the eyebox issue was not a problem.

Quick way to see if the rings are "right" is to close your eyes, shoulder rifle, get comfortable on stock and THEN open your eyes. If you have to move your head more than slightly, your scope arrangement needs some work

There are many scopes with longer tubes to consider. Some also have longer eye relief. I had no issue with a Zeiss Conquest on this 1A:



Likewise, I have no problem with a Nikon Prostaff 5 on this 1V:



i need a friend to help set my scope properly. My technique is to start with the scope loose in the rings. I close my eyes and find a comfortable position for my cheek on the stock. Then I open my eyes and move the scope until I see the full view. Finally I hold everything still while the friend tightens the rings just enough to hold the scope in place. Finally, I set the rifle on the rest for final tightening with my torque wrench.

As you can see I had a bit of rearward movement available after I set up the Zeiss on the 1A.

Do I have unusual eyes or what?

Everyone shoulders a rifle differently. I know from experience that I couldn't shoot your rifles without crawling the stock. I know that by looking at where the rear ocular is. That's too far forward for me. I set my rifles up similar to you, as far as how I do it, but obviously I set up further back on stock than you. And I know I am consistent, because I likely have 50 scoped rifles. If I stand them up and measure from ground to scope, they will all be within an inch. As a matter of fact, I just KNOW what that number is and that number is the first place I install a scope before I even look through it. Rarely do I have to move them any.

You probably do yours on bags, based on what you have said before about how you have to shoot. So that likely effects where you place your head. No right or wrong, just where YOU like it is what matters

Maybe they should release only one caliber/model every year to keep the collectors happy.

Lipseys has dropped all but one model from their online catalog. They used to list 6 or 7 different models, now only showing 1. That's not a good sign.

My understanding is that they are going to put out each model in a different caliber each year, not repeating.

That's the WBR 100th Ann model. That'll disappear once inventory is sold just like the others were.

When the model was taken over as a contracted model by Lipsey's that was to be the method. From good authority on both sides, it's out of production. Gone. Done.

I'm a dealer and just spoke my Lipsey rep today. Lipsey will no longer be the exclusive No. 1 distributor. Instead, Ruger will be selling direct and only doing limited production runs of the No.1 for the foreseeable future.
