Dear Sir -

How many of Ruger # 1-A in .280 Remington (Model # 11383) were made in 2014 or 2015 ?

Was this a Lipsey's limited edition run ?

Thanks

And I wish they had made them as the medium sporter version with the 24-inch barrel.

Yup, 24” would have been nice. 26” even better, for my taste.

A 1B with a 26 inch bbl would have been my choice.

My current .280 started out as a No. 1B that was a 1970s gun with nice wood. It was rebarreled to .280 with a 26" light profile barrel before I bought it. I swapped out the forend for a 1S forend and added a barrel band swivel base. Now it is about perfect for me. It shoots sub-MOA groups with the right loads.

Never been real big on wildcats but always thought the #1 with a 26" pipe would be a great platform for a 280 AI.
Would not take much alteration.

I don't mind a 20 to a 22" barrel in a .270,30-06, or a 280, for a hunting rifle, not at all, and it makes a heck of a saddle gun for a pack in hunt.

That is a 280 configuration that has been made in the past. If you look and ask around, you can probably find one.

All of my rifles are 22-24" barrels.

All of my 280s are 22".

I guess I'm with Ray on 280s.

I am also 5'7" tall however.

These barrel lengths suit me, and if I were taller, perhaps a 26" barrel would appeal to me.

The #1 26 inch standard wt. barrel Hendry forend was the mod. 1-S. the best of the Ruger no.1s IMO but challenged by the 1-A the same gun with a fwt 22 inch barrel..Later the 1-S came out in a 338 Win. a rifle I should not have sold..All of the above had the nice Alex Hendry forend that I like.. These are the models I had at one time..They were all from Ruger factory at the time. I believe the .280 was from Ruger early on and not Lipskys, or Hollowell but wouldn't swear to it as they may have "reerected" it.. shocker
