Re: Ruger #1

Is it possible to remove the hanger?

I only need to extract the cases (6BR), not eject them.

Re: Ruger #1

If you remove the forearm hanger I don't know how you would get to shoot. It houses the hammer spring.

Re: Ruger #1

To quote buffalobob: "I have made some spectacular misses with the gun because it will not shoot off of a hard surface."

As for me I've made some unintentional spectacular "gut" shots.

Yes you can remove the hanger. With a torch or jaws of life. But then I don't think the hammer will work.

Here's a couple of choices:
a) build the rifle
b) pee on an electric fence

The only difference is the length of the agony. (meant to be humorous not mean, just another way to attempt to get the point across)

Re: Ruger #1

Or, another way of doing it. Take a stock (prefrerly mcmillan hunter/br or win marksman), rebarrel it, put a barrel block on the barrel, and bed the block into the stock, cutting a hold for the ruger #1 action hanging free in this hole. Hey, function over form...right?

You could put a 30"++ barrel on since its hold in place by a 9" barrelblock wich also is used for mounting the scope..

The big problem would be, if the action it self is straigt enough from the factory, or atleast to give 1/2 moa. Dont know how difficult it would be to true it..

The positive is, you can use all the available cartridges out there. No need for a huge BR action costing 1300$.. find a used #1..

How does this sound?

Re: Ruger #1


As I said the gun is accurate enough to reliably shoot deer or larger sized animals as far as you can get a bullet to fly. Just be cognizant of what and how you rest the forened because the gun does not like to shoot off of hard surfaces.

Go on down and buy yourself a #1 standard in 300Wby mag. Get yourself a Hicks accuraizer and the synthetic stock and have some fun. It is obviuos that you have the stubborness needed to get one to shoot accurately.

#1 stock

The good thing about using a #1 is you get to laugh and make fun of all the people who complain about their magazine being to short to hold bullets seated long.

Re: Ruger #1

I have a friend who has 3 #1's in .338/378WBY all have 30" Hart barrels and will shoot bug holes and the devil will not sell me one!!!The great thing about these rifles is you can build a rifle with a 30" barrel and still have a shorter rifle than with bolt action!! oh and they are strong...
