My favorite local shop got it in today and called to let me know. I ran over, looked, and couldnt leave it behind. We installed the Leupold 1.5-5x20. I love those scopes. My 450/400 NE Ruger no1 wears one well also.
Looking forward to the 35 Whelen.

Rugers open sights are more graceful than the other mid price American designs, Rem, Win, Sav.

Just picked one of these up myself, would not describe any of my Ruger Africans as club like. I think they did a fine job on them

I have a couple big bore No. 1 and totally get the "club-like" analogy… short, handy, and hefty, and very manageable at about 8.5# each and NECG sights. I wouldn't want a 6.5# big bore with a pencil-thin 26" barrel!

The 223 is one Im looking for. Tough to find and prices are what I consider crazy. Lucky.

Jump on it if you find one Professor. I've been shooting it more than any other rifle since I acquired it. With the heavy barrel it swings nicely at my club's monthly running Deer matches and I haven't been able to find a load that it doesn't shoot well.

Mine is not clublike. Handles great for me. Might be heavy with the barrel bands but its much cooler than a lighter contour no sight gun.
Mine is a much leaner tang RS that I added a sling swivel band to and bedded it into a synthetic stock. Even with the factory stock with sights it was light as the barrel was very lean. I thought the new one would go at least 9# scoped which is a pound more than my Win M70 375 H&H goes. I am happy you like it. Just not for me.
