New .44 mag is being produced

A fellow on another forum has pictures of his 44 magnum Ruger number one. Apparently they are starting to make them. It would be a good one to grab but I just bought a .35 Whelen......

These are, from what I'm told by very reliable sources, the last of the last of the #1's. Very few to be made and all accounted for as being sold to dealers. Far fewer than originally intended to be produced.

A 20" barreled 1S sounds good. I certainly hope we haven't seen the last of the number one.

Talked to my Ruger guy today; he said they only made 30 of the 44 Magnum 1s. He ordered 10, and they only allowed him 1. He said I can't have it.........

Just bought one. Will get it in a couple of month's put it on layaway. I am thinking that with the weight at 7.5 pounds, shooting 44 mag will be akin to shooting a 22.

Do like the no.1, but if that one pictured with the walnut stock, is being sold at over $1400.00, I don't think so.

Actually saw one, today, at my LGS. He says it's one of 200, for what that's worth. Very nice handling rifle, but I did NOT walk out the door with it for two reasons. One, the price was $1400 plus. Two, and I confess to being surprised at this, since I have no experience with Ruger single shots, but the trigger was, uh, well, ... raunchy. At least 6 pounds, maybe more and plenty of creep. I maybe get the price thing, given it's the last of the 1s and a limited run, but no way will I pay that kind of money for a rifle with such a lousy trigger. Is this typical for a No 1?

My guy called me today and said he received one of these with Circassian walnut stock. Said only 10 would have this.
Anybody else heard anything about the Circassian option?

Ruger NEVER built ANYTHING worth that price IMO.

A custom rifle with a raunchy trigger. Id be madder than a wet hen.

Sounds like the only thing custom about it is the ridiculous price.

Well, okay. Went back for a look at the one at our LGS, mostly to double check on the trigger. Worked the action a couple of times and that helped. Probably had some factory grease on it. Actually pretty decent. About 4 pounds and crisp.

Had a credit at this shop from a previous trade and, by trading off a couple of guns that were not my style of gun (I am a diehard cowgirl type in my gun tastes), brought it home. Hope to take it to the range, soon.

Tried mounting a low power Leupold scope, but did not like the way it hung over the loading port and the supplied Ruger medium rings placed the scope way too high for a decent cheek weld. The stock is perfect for iron sights, though, so ordered a Skinner peep for it. Will use the standard open sights (actually quite useable) until it arrives. I prefer iron sights to scopes, anyway, especially on my lever guns and guns like this, so all is well.

Passed on another JM Marlin 1894 in 44 mag for this one. One thing I like about the No 1 is the more appropriate 1-20 twist (Marlin uses a 1-38) and the weight of the Ruger should make it a bit nicer to shoot than the very muzzle light Marlin. We'll see. Absolutely love the balance and the feel and the way it shoulders, though. Since the vast bulk of my shooting, even with a rifle, is offhand, this one should be a great one.

My first ever No 1, so better late than never. Looks like a great way to start. More later.

Pics do not do the wood justice. Some very nice tiger striping when the light is right.

Nice rifle North country. I asked my Ruger guy to put my name on the one he claims is stocked with Circassian walnut.

He's asking a lot for it. I won't know what to do until I see it in person.

Anyone have ANY information on the real manufactured quantity?

North Country Gal, that is a beautiful rifle and I can see the tiger striping on the stock, now that you mentioned it. I wonder if they offered it in the International version?
