Format: Hardcover
Make sure that you get the February 2007 Revision of the book (ISBN: 0-941-54006-5). The 1983 printing is completely out of date with regard to the production reference material.

This book is the reference standard-guide for persons that are interested in Ruger #1's. This book is written in a primarily historical style in stead of being written in functionally descriptive manner.

The details in chapter 2 about the design leave little doubt that the #1 is the finest production falling-block rifle ever. This chapter is enough to make most anyone realize that they should have at least one example of a #1 in their collection of rifles.

This book lacks a useful index to help one find specific things that you might wish to look up; for example if you wanted to locate "RSI" information you would need to apply trial and error, or some educated guesses if you were to locate any useful information.

This book also has very little organized information on how to customize these rifles for specific tasks. So one would need to infer from the text what it takes modify an extractor if you were re-chambering or re-barreling the rifle for another cartridge. No mention of the aftermarket triggers systems is included. Additionally the reader is left to guess or assume that the barrels are all rifled in the industry-standard rifling twists. As such that one would not know if a factory rifle in .223 Remington would stabilize an 70-80 grain target bullet or only 45-62 grain bullets. The book makes no reference to the types of rifling and the number of lands & grooves which were found in the production barrels. But it does explain in great detail the genius of the firing pin system which can be dry fired almost infinitely without doing any damage.

Great book. I am starting a no. 1 collection and this book is a good way to get the background on the rifle. I only wished this 2007 revised edition gave info on the rifles up to 2007. It only goes up to 1994. All in all a good source for no. 1's
