He said that he would be shooting mostly from the bench didn't he? If so, a "break open" action is akward, and taking it off your rifle rest to reload disturbs your concentration.

I have a Ruger #1 in 25-06 and love it. However, for the 45-70, I would much prefer a Sharps. Italian copies are OK but if possible spring for an Axtell, Shiloh, or C. Sharps - all made in the USA. If you take one of these to the range you will soon have a circle of admirers around you.

Oooooh ya, a U S made Sharps!

Even a #1 lover can like those!!

Just going to their web sites is kind of like going to a Cooper web site, lots and lots of eye candy.

Keep em coming!

MAKE IT A RUGER #1!!!!!!!!!!!

Just brought my RUGER #1 - s home from the pawn shop on Monday.

Great shape for a "used" rifle.

45/70, so have already ordered the brass, dies, bullet mold, gas checks, lube/sizer die and top punch.

Need to get a better scope on it then should be good to go. YES!

Love those #1s!

Keep em coming!
