This is my first and original Long Range Rifle. It was built back in the late 1970's. I could hold 0.75 MOA for 5 shots out to 1300 yards. It was responsible for my very best shot and one of my very worst. Feast or famine with it.

Because the falling block is short even with a 28 inch Shilen barrel, I also used it to kill a big buffalo bull at very close range.

I have just had it rebuilt and it is still marvelously accurate. The old #1s had very nice adjustable triggers which are as good as any Jewell you can buy nowdays.

In the picture it was a 7mm Wby with a 9 twist barrel with Redfield 6-18 X accurange scope. It is now totally different. I will post up a story on the re-build in a couple of weeks. It is one of a kind now.

Boss Hoss's method of using JB Weld on the scope bases was very helpful (if it will hold up to serious hunting).
