    Customize Ruger No. 1

    Hi Folks,

    If you know of a gunsmith who does nice custom work on the Ruger No. 1, I'd like to know about him. Thanks.

    Take care, Tom

    And I've heard good things about this fella:

    Steve Durren
    Johnsons Sporting Goods
    Adrian MI.
    (tel) 517-265-2545.

    .
    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    I've heard Steven Durren works on Ruger #1's. I can say that he built me an extremely fine highwall schuetzen rifle. It's the nicest rifle I own except for originals.

    Back in the days when I could travel more I spent time with Steve and I can say he’s a talented gunsmith and a first class kind of guy. I’ve seen his work on Rutgers as well as other single shots... in fact, when I first met him he had just completed building a copy of a fine German single shot based on pictures and sketches...he had to reverse engineer it without any dimensions to go by! I recommend Steve without any reservation.
