I've been searching for this rifle for years. It's a like new Ruger #1B in 218 Bee. I got this from the original owner with the box, extension rings, dies, and 161 pieces of virgin 25-20 brass along with 39 pcs that were converted to 218 Bee and fire formed. I couldn't believe it! It was like one stop shopping with this guy. I already have 200 pcs of virign 218 Bee brass on hand for my 1894 CL, but I was in much need of the 25-20 brass.
I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees.....μολὼν λαβέ
There is not one person I would not take hunting......there are a few that would not make it back though.

Wow that's awesome! I have had #1's in about every caliber over the years but never a Bee!

Congratulations you sly dog...
I claim first right of refusal when you ever decide to part with it off trade for any reason.
Thanks for sharing!
Salvaging old Marlins is not a past time ... It's a passion.
Mostly 1893 through 1959 Marlin levers, short carbines to long rifles.
Most models and variations in calibers
30/30, .308, .32, .35, .357, .45 Colt, 45/70 (a few)...
Cast and reload for 'em all, hunt year round.
