Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to celebrate its 75th year as an American firearms manufacturer in 2024. To commemorate this milestone, the Company is releasing a very special edition of one of America’s most iconic firearms – the Ruger No. 1.

Only 75 of these rifles have been built and each is engraved "1 of 75" on the bottom of the receiver. A special serial number (R75-401 through R75-475) was created just for these rifles.

“This rifle not only commemorates a significant milestone in the Company’s history, but it is a testament to the dedicated craftsmen and women working to preserve Bill Ruger’s legacy,” said Chris Killoy, President and CEO of Ruger Firearms. “This beautifully crafted rifle is truly a work of art.”
Introduced in 1967, the single-shot No. 1 is an American classic designed by Bill Ruger himself. It has a hammerless falling-block action designed for both strength and beauty. The diamond anniversary edition of the No. 1 rifle is handsomely adorned with attractive scrollwork engraving that accentuates the gold and silver Ruger Eagle and 75th anniversary emblem.

This commemorative Ruger No. 1 is chambered in .270 Win. and features a 22" barrel with express sights and integral scope mounts machined directly on the solid steel quarter rib. High-grade American walnut compliments the beauty and elegance of the receiver and barrel.
