Ruger No.1 Action

Print Post  
Know someone in a senior position at Ruger's largest distributor. I ask him about selling Ruger No.1 actions so we can build what we want. He did approach Ruger with the question about purchasing actions for resale and the response was, “We will not sell anything without it being test fired / proof tested for liability reasons.” Too bad for us.

Ha, ha........ no more than post this and hear back from him that they will continue discussions. Don't hold your breathe. But.......... who knows?

Quite a few years back I bought a Ruger No.1 barreled action in 30-06, new in the box at a Littlejohn's auction.  Doesn't appear to have ever been fired.  I wonder if they used to do business differently?

Regards,
Joe

I don't see how a barreled action would be of any help? Even if one could get a 1V chambered in say 32-40. Hammer forged barrels are not known to be competitive.

Would be nice to see the FBW's J action come back the last ones we picked up from Leo and the last ones that he had were only $400.00 just a few years back.

Apparently they did.  As I understand it, these were sold as actions only, in the white.

Does anyone do a Stock for the Ruger No 1.
I have a No 1 in 38/72, but unfortunately the straight Stock won't allow a Tang site to fold low enough so as to be able to wipe the bore as in BPCR.

CPA lists several on their website.
38-72 sounds interesting.

Yes....... C. Sharps sells both their 1885 HW/LW & 1874 & 1875 Sharps actions without barrel or wood. Wonder if they would also sell their Hepburn action?
Same with CPA. Can purchase their Stevens 44 1/2 action "in the white".
Also, MVA offers a flat-spring 1885 action in either single-trigger, single-set trigger or double-set trigger.
Only Shiloh Sharps and Ruger seems to not sell their complete action without barrel & wood. Seems to me that Ruger's liability concerns are over-blown. Remington & Savage sell thousands of their bolt-gun actions every year, to say nothing of all the small custom shop and evil black-rifle actions sold every year.

Please don't tell Anschutz or Sako or they might have to withdraw from competition. Grin
Like broach or cut-rifled, their competitiveness depends on how much attention is paid to the work they do.

Have you really forgotten that lawsuit instigated by the drunk-at-the-time Blackhawk owner who while illegally hunting from inside his truck managed to drop his cocked pistol and shoot himself?  Common sense would have thrown the suit out of court; yet Ruger lost.  Forever thereafter Ruger has been overly cautious and I at least can't really blame them.

With all the other great options to buy actions and build a single shot rifle, I am not concerned whether Ruger also offers theirs. It's a wonderful action, but lack of an exposed hammer is a deficit in some types of matches.

The last catalog I got from Brownells (that I could find) still had the barreled action listed in it, #48 (1995-1996) wish they were still that price... have some regrets, built some super whammy, dumb calibers on them.  With some work and trigger mods they can be an interesting rifle...  Anymore though, I'm with Arnie, I'd rather spend my time and money on most any of the others.

Treebone Carving has some very nice stock designs even in pistol grip for #3's.
