In 2013, Ruger announced that the Ruger No.1 would only be made in one caliber per configuration. These were the 1A in .222 Rem., 1V (with a 26″ barrel) in 6.5-284 Norma, 1S in 45/70, 1H in 375 H&H, and the RSI in 7×57. In 2014, the offerings were: 1A in 280 Rem., RSI in 257 Roberts, 1V in .220 Swift, 1H in 450/400 NE 3″, and 1S in 9.3×62. For 2015, Lipsey’s LLC will be the Exclusive distributor for the Ruger No.1 rifle. I feel this will be a good thing, as Lipsey’s has been a leader for several years in their own Ruger No.1 Exclusives. They know what Customers and Shooters want and will work diligently to get some No.1’s made that appeal to shooters and hunters . Their are some unique rifles in this years No.1 offering. The 1B is back-with a 28″ barrel in the 257 Weatherby! The 1S will be a 30/06 with a 24″ barrel! The RSI will be a 6.5×55, the 1A is a 7mm-08 and there will be a K1V(with a 26″ barrel; 1-8 twist) in .223; stocks will be walnut. The 1H is a .375 H&H. I expect to have all these offerings in stock as they are made.

Lipsey has done a series of 5 of the K1A in stainless/ walnut. These were the 7.62×39, 257 Roberts, 6.5×55, 35 Whelen, and lastly, the 250 Savage. Also, a 1A (in blue) was made in several of these same calibers: the 257 Roberts, 6.5×55, and the 35 Whelen. Additionally, a 1A in 30/30 was also made.
There were also a limited number of No.1S-C’s made in 45/70. This is the 26″ C weight barrel with Circassian stocks. I am out of these rifles. Thjey were made in 2 runs of about 125 each. First run was in the range of 134-35XXX; 2nd run range was 134-40XXX.
