Ruger No.1 rifles, the standard for American-made single-shot rifles, will only be available in select calibers and configurations for 2014. These caliber offerings will be discontinued in 2015 when Ruger introduces new calibers for these configurations.
The No.1-A Light Sporter will be offered in.280 Remington, the No.1-RSI-International will be in .257 Roberts, the No.1-V Varminter will be in .220 Swift, the No.1-S Medium Sporter will be in 9.3×62, and the No.1-H Tropical will be in 450/400 N.E. 3 inch.
The Ruger No. 1 employs a strong, simple, compact falling-block breech mechanism with an artillery-style breechblock and under-lever. This makes it ideal for powerful cartridges. Further, its robust, sturdy, sculptured receiver forms a rigid support for the barrel, stock and sliding breechblock. Its sliding tang safety provides instant security, visibility, and accessibility.
Its ejector mechanism provides maximum leverage where the ejector engages the cartridge case, and can be adjusted for extraction only. The No. 1 also features patented integral scope mounts that are machined directly into the solid steel quarter rib. This provides a stable mounting surface for its scope rings (included).
