Hello fellow Ruger fans.
I have recently found and purchase a Ruger number 1 RSI in 30.06. Thus far I am very pleased. I'm sure I'll have many questions to post as time goes by.
For now I'm looking for info on a bore guide for my Number 1. Will the ones that are advertised for use in a bolt action work on a falling block?
Also, anyone have any experience with the Hicks accurizer?
Thanks
Rob

Welcome to RugerTalk,

Thanks for joining and the introduction.

I am a Ruger #1 fan.

I have a #1 in 45-70. Love of my life.

I cant see any reason why you couldn't use a bore guide for bolt guns in the #1.

I don't use one , but that's my opinion.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.
Jim. I agree with you on the "love of your life". I fell for mine in the 70's. I either couldn't afford one or I couldn't find one. Thanks for the bore guide info.
Ernesto, I'm fairly confident. Marine Corp weapons training, Vietnam vet and have been shooting for, well, a long time.
I'm always looking for input. Why your statement?
Anyone install a Hicks accurizer?
Thanks

Gotta be honest with you Marine,

I haven't seen a need for the accurizer on my 45-70 ,
It is more accurate (with the right handload) at 100 yrds than most can shoot.

I have a Leupold VXII 3x9x32 scope on mine, and It will punch a huge hole in the O of COKE on coke cans, pretty consistently .

I'm losing sleep over one chambered in 220 Swift, $900, right now at a Pawn Shop.


Hers my 45-70...man, I love this gun.

Every one of them I have ever seen, had really beautiful wood.

That's part of the reason they don't give em away free.;):)

Hi Jim, Great info. I do appreciate it. What is your take on "breaking in the barrel".
My RSI also has beautiful wood grain. Not bad for a production firearm.

I've admired the #1 for many years, but believe what my Grandpa told me: "Every falling block wants a hammer."

:D
