    Hey fellas, maybe ya'll can help me out. I've got a Ruger No. 1B in .17 Remington made in 1984 and can't find any info of the No. 1 chambered in this round. I know that the M77 was available with it. It's really a chore following all the calibers of the No.1 but any info would be appreciated.

    I'm a big fan of the Ruger #1 , but I have never seen, or heard of one in 17 Rem caliber.

    That's one I would hang onto,

    Cant find any info on it either.

    Thasks for the response, the only info I've found was someone mentioned having one on a post from a few years back. You would think that a caliber that seemed that rare in a gun would be special order maybe, but there is nothing special about it, just your typical 1B except the caliber. Hopefully I'll be able to somehow find a little more info on it. I contacted Ruger to see if they could help me out but haven't heard back from them.

    I'm betting it was a special order,
    May be wrong.

    Would like to hear what Ruger says.

    Never heard of one and having looked through all my info here...nothing listed. 100% certain it's factory? Pictures?

    Yeah best I'm pretty sure it's factory, script 270 and single trademark on the barrel. I'll follow up with pics.

    Not 270, it has .17 Rem. In script. I was thinking about my other no.1.

    Looks like it is rebarrel, I got back and got a closer look at the script and it doesn't look right. Hopefully Ruger will let me know the original caliber. I've attached a pic.

    Yeah, I've had it awhile and it shoots good, haven't put it on target but hit everything I've shot at. Probably get it out and put it on target with the 1B in .270 I just bought.
