    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

    You must be a pretty confident shooter to buy that.

    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
