    Ruger THUMPS with their No. 1 Sporter Now Chambered in .450 Marlin



    Ruger no longer has the expansive caliber selection they used to in their No. 1 line-up of single-shot rifles, but they are not letting this model go away permanently either. Ruger recently announced they are chambering their Sporter model in .450 Marlin for those who love a caliber that thumps!

    Ruger had these comments to say about the new caliber introduction:

    That's a caliber I've never had, can't log onto that site right now but if it's the Ruger No.1 that's
    blued with wood I might look into it.

    Blued steel and walnut... my favorite.

    Price is ugly at the moment. although I suspect will come down as time passes.

    The MSRP of this variation of the No. 1 retails for $1,499.
