I have a friend that found a used (supposedly in pristine condition) ruger #1 in 7mm mag for $550.00 or so..

Anyone have one of these and do you think this is a good deal?

That's pretty high for a used Number One. My buddy just bought a new SS/laminated for $650. $450 to $500 is more like it, and I'd be jittery about that. Number Ones are awfully nice rifles, but they can have some issues with the two-piece stocks, sometimes they shoot like a house afire, and sometimes you want to throw them in a burning house. It's a crapshoot with them, but they CAN be made to shoot well, if they don't already do so. I guess it depends on whether or not you like them, I like my friend's just fine, and it shoots really well, too. I just think his is too heavy to tote around too far, but I'm kinda lazy......

Well.. bluebook on this rifle at 98% is $595 for what thats worth..

Thanks for the info. He is dead set on this gun and would have got the encore if they offered a 7mag bbl for it.

every ruger #1 i've looked at the past 18 months has topped 625.00. i would say the average price i saw was 650.00 and up if it was something special. it certainly looks to be a fair price.

My buddy just bought the same Ruger and two Ithaca Model 37s for 900 from a pawn shop in Boonville. The guy wanted 600 for the rifle and 600 for the matched shotguns. I'd tell your buddy to maybe wait a bit. That Ruger was on the shelf at the pawn shop for six weeks or more. I don't think folks in Cooper County were too interested in the caliber even though the rifle was pretty sweet.
