Default Ruger #1 porn for Cat

I'm not a huge fan but I can still appreciate workmanship and a beautiful rifle.



Grabbed these images off another site.

That is a very nice #1 and by the looks of all the plaques it must shoot. Iíve only shot a couple #1ís and never owned own but from what Iíve seen groups are usually mediocre at best.

Wow! Love the wood, not too crazy about the barrel fluting , but it IS oustanding work, for for sure.
The danged loudenator on the muzzle would be a deal breaker for me however! LOL

A couple of all out Fclass guns I have had the pleasure of owning over the years, two of nine that were built by a collaboration between Paul Reibin, Mick McPhee and Ed Begg, all who have since passed to quieter ranges.
This one is an F/O rifle in 6mmBR.

This one is now owned by Lone Wolf, it's also an F/O class gun in 308

Both of these will keep them inside 1/2MOA at 1K if the shooter is up to the wind call!

I don't know where you get that information. I've own mine since 1980 and I can cloverleaf 5 rounds 9 times out of ten.

Maybe my standards are too low
