Have the trigger and Accurizer installed on my No1V and made a significant improvement in accuracy. You will love the trigger.

Congrats. :) Is the rifle Duracoated?

I want a #1A in 6.8SPC so badly, but I can't figure out who might be able to make me one. Any recommendations?

How much of a difference does the Hicks accurizer make?

While you're at it, what is a Hicks accurizer and how does it work?

The Accurizer will make a difference for some rifles. It is basically a set screw attached to the forfend hanger that progressively puts pressure on a single point on the barrel which supposedly affects the harmonics. You gradually turn the set screw until you obtain the best group. In effect, it also free floats the forearm. I installed it myself as well as the Kepplinger trigger. Installing the Hicks was relatively simple using a Dremel and woodworking tools. The trigger was a little more difficult.

Jdillon, Thanks for the info, by how much did this device reduce your average group size?

Shooting reloads with fired formed and neck sized brass the rifle will shoot better than 1/2" at 100m. Before installing the Accurizer it wouldn't shoot less than one inch. The rifle does not shoot well with new brass and groups poorly. Very finicky rifle.

Gee, it ONLY shot MoA and needed accuracy work? :eek:

How much mileage (as in YMMV) do you get by just relieving the stock under the barrel and action on the Ruger No. 1? Or is that already done at the factory?

After you relieve the stock, you need to strategically add pressure back at a single point? [BTW, what is a "forfend hanger"? - I get it, you probably meant "forend" or "fore-end".] Still, what is this "hanger"? Do all rifles have it?

pwillie, is located in lower Alabama, so I assume that's just his accent. :D

Bill Rights:

Good catch on the spelling of forend. The hanger receives the screw that attaches the forend to the barrel. If you have a No. 1, remove the forend and you will see it. To install the Hicks you need to relieve a portion of the forend to accept it and drill a hole to access the set screw. Some folks free float and bed the forend as well as other things to improve accuracy. From the factory, the forend is in contact with the barrel.

well, the No.1 B standard has been discontinued, cant figure Ruger out, come out with some firearms that dont make much sense, get rid of the standard and leave the No.1s with the ugly Henry forearm on the market. I got a few No. 1s, wish they had gotten around to one in 7mm-08.
