Trying to figure out a value of a Ruger no.1 I have. It is a new in Box Ruger #1 Sporter 22" barrel chambered in 45/70.

This is a special addition for Federals 100year anniversary.

Thanks for any help folks... Got someone interested, but not for sure what to ask.

For extra collectibility above that of a standard Number 1, need to figure out if this is a Ruger factory release or an after-market customization. And if it is a factory release, how many were done?

Wow sure is a beauty. My book says Ruger made the No. 1-S chambered in 45-70. Yours looks like a real collector one with the Federal engraving. Wish I had more to offer but my book is a few years old. Value should be high I would think. Nice to see for sure.

I have no idea the year... I assume last year. As I received it this year. I will see if I can find that magazine locally. Thanks

I was told that they did up 27 in that caliber.... I have #4...
Nice! Still looking for some kind of advertisement from Federal that they had a contest on these.
It doesn't help that Ruger doesn't have the serial numbers logged into their serial number lookup page.
I do know that the model number is 21336.

Wait a second... that insinuates that there are other models/calibers in this Federal Cartridge commemorative???

No, they were only offered in 45-70 caliber.

They didn't have a contest, they were offered to Federal Employees at a certain cost. I found out from a reliable source that only 27 employees ordered the Ruger No. 1.

I have a flyer somewhere...
