I went to my gun room trying to straight and check the inventory of my collections, I found a Ruger No. 3 in .22 honest and .375 Win..
Does anyone know about these calibers how many of the Ruger made? Please let me know.

Just today, I cruised through a gun shop and saw a row of #3's on consignment. There was 1 each .375, 22 Hornet, 45-70, and .223. The selling prices were a minimum $1200. I owned all the factory chamberings a few years ago. The scarcest for me to find was the 44 Mag followed by the .375 Win. I can't answer your question at this time. When I get home, I will get the info you need. Someone else may find it before mw.

I have # 3 in 44 mag, NIB but not for sale. I will dig it out after I get back from the Shot Show.

I had a 22 hornet for a long time. Was made a crazy offer on it, so I sent it down the road. Wasn't there also a 30-40 #3 or am I mixed up.

I may have to rethink the $800 #3 22 Hornet I passed on recently. It's still for sale but has some finish missing on the butt & fore stocks. Good 98% bluing and the wood isn't dented just scraped - probably safe rash. Any hints on refinish if I do get it? He's also got 200 rounds of ammo for $100 with the gun.

I own a .375 and love it. It’s an heirloom piece so I’d never sell it but I’ve always wondered about it’s value.

Great rifles, my go to is a 45-70, I’ve had all the calibers except the Krag. You do need to be careful with the 44 magnum version, I’ve run across a couple that were reamed to accept 444 Marlin. While a useful modification, it does hurt the value.

Here’s my .375 Win. I’d like to know the value of the gun, even though I’d likely never sell it!

I was just offered a nib #3 .375 win. He said make an offer. So I’ve been checking around and used ones seem to be in the 800-1000 range. Not that there’s many selling.
