    What is the going rate on a used 92-95% Ruger 1?

    Good question. I have 5 brand new unfired 338-378 wby's built on new Ruger #1's when it was still a wildcat cartridge. They all have 30" match Hart and Pac-Nor Super Match barrels. I need to sell a few.

    I have bought 4 or 5 used #1's and unless it's perfect I wouldn't pay over $425.

    I've never been able to move one for more than $495 and it was a nice one. 355 H&H. The fella took it to Az and thumped a large buff.

    I also have several new unfired #1 barrels that were screwed off to build customs. I have got to start cleaning out all this stuff from my old shop. Anybody make a guess as to what the 338-378's would be worth. I can't say how they shoot because they are all unfired. I have one as a personal gun and it shoots 200 grain ballistic tips at 3730 fps all into a pie plate at a half mile. The #1 makes a short, light custom big gun by just changing the extractor . No bolt face to open on that great falling block action.
