Lipsey’s, the exclusive distributor of the Ruger No. 1 single-shot rifle, has announced the release of six new configurations. For those not familiar with the Ruger No. 1, it is touted as the ultimate “classic” rifle. The weapon is centered on a falling-block breach mechanism with ejector. The safety is tang-mounted and the barrels are banded for sling mounts.
The new configurations spread the gamut of calibers, barrel lengths, and finishes. The two center-fire options include a .308 rifle with a stainless barrel and a 6.5 Creedmoor with a whopping 28″ barrel.
The new configurations are:
- · 1B Sporter chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor with 28″ barrel, blued with walnut furniture.
- · 1S Sporter chambered in 35 Whelen with 24″ barrel, blued with walnut furniture.
- · 1S Sporter chambered in 44 Magnum with 20″ barrel, blued with walnut furniture.

- · 1A Light Sporter chambered in .275 Rigby with 24″ barrel, blued with walnut furniture and express sights.
