    ARCTIC and Clay:
    Count me in as an advocate and future buyer of a .22LR No. 1 rifle.
    I had a 7mm Mag No. 1 and sold it after retiring from hunting. I loved that rifle, and it never failed to bring home the meat. I also sent a challenge to Ruger a couple of years back stating that if the British could build a single-shot rimfire that is still the envy of target shooters (i.e. Martini's), why wasn't Ruger on the bandwagon with a #1 version? I hope that SHOT 2018 brings some hope.

    Right on, Lakers, ....never came home without meat because I used a single-shot! Hell, the Brits made several, ...I've got Alex Henrys, Farquharsons, 1885's, and a pile of #1's, but I NEED a #1 in .22!!! I only pop gophers one at a time so it would be perfect!!! And I'd "feel" more like a "gentleman hunter"!!

    I've always wanted a No. 1 .....just because. However, cost has always been a deterrent.
    I'm excited that a .22lr version may be available but like others have already mentioned there are already some very nice looking/shooting singles out there......

    I would like one in a 223. But that might be as scarce as a CZ527. in 223. I own a Ruger#1B In 7mil Mag. Everyone wants it. My father is giving me his Ruger#1A in 7X57 Mauser. The one rifle that I will never part with is a Ruger#1. There is just something about them. Nice thread guys. And I do hope they come out with a 22LR.

    I would put a deposit on a .22lr No.1...and this is coming from a guy who has never ever bought into, or understood, the fanatical gotta-have-one-immediately mentality that has people paying for guns that they won't see for months, if ever.

    Over the past few years I have sold off the bulk of my rifles. When it came time to decide which one of my No.1's to keep, it was a heart-rending experience to decide which one would make the cut and stay with me. Mind you...it never even occurred to me not to keep one!

    Never had a chance to put my hands on a #1 but after reading threw this I will put an effort to change that. If it's as nice as everyone says I'll probably end up taking one home.
