Lifes too short not to own a #1

I have weekeness for #1's and thought id post a coupel pictures of my recent additions.

7mm Dakota







17 Killer Bee







Ill fated .17PPC





This is what happens when you use the wrong burning rate powder for selected bullet weight. But I'm convinced someone from NH is running around with this engraved receiver. They refused to send it back even after welding it up as a reminder to pay attention.

.20 Little Stubby( .20 BR -.185" short)

I love the number one. I think the wood on yours is drop dead gorgeous. I have #1s in 30-06 375 h and h and a couple othe calibers. i used to have a 458 lott one that got to be too much of a good thing recoil wise. If elephants escape from the zoo I can shoot them closeup with the 375 I do not need a 458 lott one.

Nicely done! I like the recessed safety - I wish that was the way they came from the factory.....

Great wood on the rifle, who was the blank from and who shaped and fitted it?

Very nice! That first rifle in 7mm Dakota has superb wood and very fine fit and finish indeed! This really makes the Number 1 that much more special.

Blank is from Cecil Freddi in Las Vegas and Ed Shulin did the duplicating and Tim smith-lyon did the fitting/ finishing and checkering.
