    Welcome to RugerTalk,

    Thanks for joining.

    I too am a #1 fan,

    And I have limited knowledge about the .204 #1s, but I do believe your model Ais somewhat collectable.
    Ruger did discontinue them , (sorry) due to lack of sales in that caliber.

    If I were you, I would not let anyone talk me out of it..;):)

    Ok , you did say guesss,

    Yours does have sights and slotted forearm , right?

    Pictures would be really nice...;):)

    I would say...whatever someone would be willing to pay.
    That would depend on how bad they wanted it...right ?

    You know that the gun is a great varmint gun ,short, easy carry, light weight.
    But, they are not "one ragged hole" shooters.

    Ive done some searching, and I find a few model ABs and Bs, but not an A model.
    They run from $900 t0 $2000, depending on condition and SS or blue.

    I would say a minimum of $1000, to start, to right person.

    Just guessing , ya know.

    God , how I love looking at that #1, they are so beautiful , (tears of joy , ;))

    Yep sights , and slotted forearm...thats an A model.

    If it was 416 Rigby... we would be having serious conversation.:)


    Hang onto that one brother.

    don't worry it's not a 416 buy is different. it is a hefty barrel 218 bee with a 22" barrel.
