Ruger's Auction To Benefit Honored American Veterans Afield

OK, Ruger fans, this one will get your attention.  The Ruger being auctioned off this week for HAVA is a very fine example of a Number 1 Medium Sporter in 45-70.  Ruger's writeup: "Up for auction is a No. 1 Medium Sporter, single-shot rifle serial number 132-76724. It is a 45-70 Gov’t caliber, and the testfire date is February 6, 1986. It has a beautiful American walnut stock with a satin finish and a red rubber buttpad with the Ruger eagle logo. The pistol grip and Alexander Henry-style forearm are hand checkered to a borderless design, 20 lines to the inch. Other features include a hammer-forged 22” barrel; quick detachable sling swivels; adjustable folding leaf rear sight mounted on a quarter rib with a ramp front sight base and dovetail-type gold bead front sight. The rifle is being sold “as is.” The purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale. The No. 1 rifle will be shipped in the box it had been stored in along with a set of Ruger scope rings, an appropriate instruction manual, some original paperwork, and a yellow cable lock. The rifle is a part of the Ruger factory collection in Southport, Connecticut. A Certificate of Authenticity will be mailed to the winner of the auction. Note: the winner of this auction will be responsible for paying the Federal Excise Tax."

There aren't very many animals in this world that cannot be taken with this rifle when it is properly stoked, and it is beautiful to boot.  Click Here or on the photo to place your bid.  This fine example of firearm manufacturing sells mid-day on Wednesday, May 1, 2013.  100% of the proceeds go to benefit Honored American Veterans Afield.
