Ruger number 1A in 30/06 with a 24 inch medium weight barrel?

Post by Silverfox4831 »

Does anyone know if Ruger made their #1 A ,,,Which normally has a 22 inch light barrel, in caliber 30/06. With a 24 inch medium weight barrel? I saw one that was advertised this way with a 24 inch medium weight barrel on GunBroker and I wondered if anyone knew anything about it? Or if it was authentic?

Yes they did a run (or two?) of these with 24" B-weight barrels a few years ago. In my opinion, a much more desirable configuration than the thin 22" A-weight.

Probably a Lipsey's offering. What is the model number?
