The forend has flank checkering and an Alexander-Henry notch at the tip.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. This rifle has a smooth falling block action and tang mounted safety. The trigger breaks crisp with no takeup; we predict the trigger will become even smoother with some use. We have not fired this rifle. As with all previously owned firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: From Wikipedia: “The Ruger No. 1 is a single-shot rifle, with Farquharson-style internal hammer falling block action, manufactured bySturm, Ruger. It was introduced in 1967.[3] An underlever lowers the block allowing loading and cocks the rifle. Lenard Brownell, commenting on his work at Ruger, said of the No. 1: "There was never any question about the strength of the action. I remember, in testing it, how much trouble I had trying to tear it up. In fact, I never did manage to blow one apart."[4]” This No. 1-H Tropical in about Fine condition, chambered in .458 Winchester Magnum, a completely terrifying round if you happen to be big game or a paper target! Hunters and wildlife agents have depended on this round to take down the most dangerous game the world has to offer with proven results. The beautiful wood, high retention of finish and strong bore will make any hunter happy. Please see our pictures and good luck.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred/sold in California.
