    Christmas Ruger #1 in 218 Bee

    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.

    There is not one person I would not take hunting......there are a few that would not make it back though.

    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.

    The #1 or #3 are the only thing Ruger makes that gets me excited. I bought a new #1B 25-06 in 2007 and love it. The 218 Bee has been difficult to find. I seen one about six years ago but Bubba got a hold of it and it was not worth buying. This one was made in 1994 and I couldn't be more pleased.
