Think of the best when you think of single-shot rifles. Think of Ruger No.1, the standard for single-shot American-made rifles.
The Ruger No. 1 is a Farquharson-style internal hammer falling-block action single-shot rifle manufactured by Sturm, Ruger & Co. In 1967, it was introduced. An underlever lowers the block that allows the gun to be primed and cocks. Commenting on his job at Ruger, Lenard Brownell said about No. 1:
The force of the action was never challenged. I remember how much trouble I had trying to tear it up while testing it In fact, I never managed to blow one apart.”There was never any question about the strength of the action. I remember, in testing it, how much trouble I had trying to tear it up. In fact, I never did manage to blow one apart.”
On the hammer and sear, a shotgun-style tang safety operates. Accessible in a multitude of calibers with an Alexander Henry, Beavertail, or Mannlicher type forearm.
