Yup. Headspace issues from what I hear.

The Lipseys stainless or the new blued ones?

Seems no one can make the 35 work right in a singleshot

For what it is worth, i hear Ruger has denied there is a recall. They say it was a case of bad ammo and they recommend Remington fodder.

Unless you can find some of the discontinued Federal ammo in the 225g Bearclaw, which should be awesome, I think only Remington loads for the Whelan as a commercial source.
I'm sure there are custom reloaders that could also offer it.

I bought one two weeks ago, I have not heard anything about it. I sent my card in and nothing back yet. I am using Remington until I shoot it up so I can develop a load worthy of this great old caliber.

Any updated information concerning this? I've been tossing around the idea of possibility getting one for myself someday.

Guess not.

I guess no one, in here at least, who's actually experienced a problem with a #1 in this caliber.

At any rate, for a few months now, I've been looking at the .35 Whelen rifles that have been up for auction @ G.B. and the ones shown at Lypsey's, or at least the photos that are examples of #1s in this caliber. Now, maybe it's just me, but I have yet to see one with really impressive wood grain figure; only mediocre at best; at least in my eyes. I'm not quite sure what to make of that, but I do know for sure that I haven't seen one I'd lay good money down on yet.

Although I have a feeling the pickings are slim, I guess I'll have to try to broaden my search to see if I can find more .35W rifles for sale w/photos.

I know what you mean about nice wood, sometimes you look at 5 No1'a and none of them are better than nice. But keep in mind straight grain Walnut is certainly stronger than some wild grained stock of the same shape.

At a recent Gunshow I saw a No. 1 (in 234 if I recall) with a particularly nice figured stock. Of the few he had all were in similar (95%) condition and his price was $100 more for the one with a nice stock.

All I'm saying is don't let a ho-hum stock drive you away if the price is right and it is in the caliber you are hunting for. I have a 35 Weylen, but in a Rem 7400 (pump-action), it has nice walnut and shoots great with a 4x compact scope. I like it for Elk hunting in the AZ mountains. A No. 1 in 35W would be nice!

I know what you're saying and all but ho-hum walnut isn't going to cut it for me on a #1 in any caliber. Call me fussy, nuts or what have you, but I don't mind at all paying a bit more for a nice piece of wood over a plain one.

None of my #1s have plain/boring looking wood, by design.

Good for you admitting you have a Remington Pump especially on this forum. I've recently strayed from #1's to acquire 2-35 Rem Carbines and a 300 Savage, however you listed having a 7400 which would be an automatic rather than the 7600 Pump.
I'm customizing one of the 35Rems to replicate a 7600P (Patrol) 16 1/2" barrel with a matte finish, synthetic stocks and a Wilson Ghost ring rear sight.



I put a Remington Special Field (English) straight stock on the 300 Savage, and cut the barrel back to 20 inches for a quick swinging, lightweight woods rifle.
The third 35 Rem Carbine I'm leaving "as is" and it's the rifle that set me on this course! Awesome gun and fun to load for!
