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.

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!

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.
