The following is a press release from Lipsey’s

Lipsey’s, a nationally renowned firearms distributor, has been working behind the scenes with Ruger to deliver six new variations of the classic No. 1 rifle.

Beginning in 2015, Lipsey’s became the exclusive distributor of the Ruger No. 1 rifle series. Picking up the line was an easy choice given the loyal fan base and consistent selling cycle.

Jason Cloessner, Lipsey’s Product Development Manager, had some tough choices to make but couldn’t wait to take these rifles public. “The Ruger No. 1 is the ultimate “classic” rifle. The hardest part is deciding which configurations and calibers to go with. This year we will have several variations that have never been done before in order to give the No. 1 aficionado something new. Lipsey’s is proud to keep the tradition of the Ruger No. 1 going.”

The new Ruger No. 1’s are currently arriving at Lipsey’s and will be made available immediately.
