2017 Ruger No.1 Lineup is still not clear to me. Lipsey’s will not be the Exclusive Distributor in 2017. Maybe we will know more after NRA in Atlanta at the end of April.
Well, we did not know more about the Ruger No.1 after NRA in Atlanta! Now, here appear to be 5 new rifles in 2017; First is a 1B 450 Bushmaster in stainless/laminate with a 20″ barrel and a muzzle brake, and checkered laminate stocks; Model #21304. I have a few of these for $1300 + shipping. Another is the 450 Bushmaster in a 1S configuration with a 20″ barrel, blue and walnut, that is an Exclusive with Randy’s Hunting Center of Bad Axe, MI, having a Model# of 21312. The 50th Anniversary Ruger No.1 is a 1A in 308, engraving on both sides with a Model# of 21308. Two Lipsey’s Exclusives are the 460 S&W and 475 Linebaugh in the 1S configuration, 20″ barrels and in blue/walnut, Model#s are 21310 and 21311. A few 1V’s in .204 Ruger were made in blue and walnut in the last year. they were never cataloged and not made before; Model# is 21303. From this, I am missing Model#s 21305, 21306, 21307and 21309- I don’t know what they were, or if even made!

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.

The 2015 cataloged rifles have not arrived yet. I have several of each on order. THE 1A’S IN 7mm-08 ARE SHIPPING, as of 8/10/2015
Early in the year, Ruger made several runs of earlier cataloged rifles. I have 2015 NIB production 1A’s in 270 Win and 243 Win @ $1250. Also, No.1V in 22-250 and 25-06 $1250.

I made a special purchase of some of the last cataloged 1H 450/400’s with the C weight barrel that I can sell for $935 shipped to Your FFL. These are NIB, but fairly plain wood. Also, have 2 each of the 1A in 280 Rem and the 1S in 9.3×62 at $935 shipped to your FFL. Some 1A’s in 7.62×39 got made this year; 300 is the number I am told. They are $975 shipped.
