Saw this on ODT web site for sale for only $775 I think it was. Walnut / Blued and 26" barrel..... I did not know they produced this version!
I have zero interest in belted magnums these days but what an odd #1 it is.
If ODT = The OutDoors Trader, I think I found that No. 1 in 7mm magnum. I would have guessed also that most 7mm magnums were in the 1B configuration, with no sights and the semi-beavertail forearm. According to the J.D. Clayton book on the No.1, the 1S configuration in 7mm magnum was a catalog item from about 1970 through at least 1996, which is the last year covered in the book. Looks like the seller has reduced the price to $700.....
Surprised it's not grabbed up by now. I've used up all my 'grabbing money' for now, and don't relish magnums much more these days.
A like new #1B in stainless laminate 7 mag floated around the same site for about $850 for a while....another one that should have sold at the price I thought.
