Custom Ruger # 1 - 358 Win.

Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I've just finished off the last minute final touches of my " Dream Rifle ", A Ruger # 1.

The rifle now has a 20" barrel ( Ideal length IMO for slipping around through the hvy. timber here in AL and not have the end of the barrel always hitting tree limbs ) . The barrel was rebored & the barrel was cut and re-crowned by JES in OR.

The barrel is a 3 groove .005 tall rifling. chambered in 358 Win. The bore is .3580 ", mirror smooth.
The sling does not attach to the fore end. Instead, it attaches to a solid steel barrel band on the barrel.

The rifle has a Burris, Signature 1.5 X 6 Variable with a plex reticle in low mounts.
The rifle has a Moyer's Adjustable trigger in it, set at 1.5 lbs. , clean , crisp, with no over travel. The stock and fore end are highly figured. The butt stock has a " Shadow Line " Cheek Piece .

I did all the stock work on the rifle.

Can't wait to shoot this one..........I'll be in the deep hardwood bottoms after White Tailed deer here in AL with this one.

This is my 3rd , 35 cal. rifle that JES has rebored for me. The other 2 are nail drivers with cast bullets. I hope this one will be also.

Give me your opinion on the rifle after you look at photos below.

Here is a link to the photos, look in the approx. center of the page when the link opens and find " View as slide show " in blue , click on that and sit back and watch the photos :

Nice looking rig you put together. Recently started exploring the 358 Winchester myself. You also take very good photos.
