The first and only firearm ever manufactured by the Hornady Manufacturing Company, of Grand Island, will be featured as the 2015 SHOT Show rifle and made available to Hornady fans around the world via Guns for Sale - Online Gun Auction - Buy Guns at GunBroker.com.
"We don't mean to alarm our friends at Remington, Winchester or Ruger. Hornady has no plans of going into the gun business," commented Hornady President, Steve Hornady in announcing the gun. "The concept of creating a one-of-a-kind Hornady rifle has been percolating for several years and we are excited to make "The Hornady Number One" a reality for 2015-- especially since the gun has been selected as the 2015 SHOT Show Rifle."
The Hornady Number One is a bolt action in .300 RCM caliber with serial number H-001. The gun may be viewed at GunBroker.com at FIRST-EVER HORNADY RIFLE : Bolt Action Rifles at GunBroker.com
The SHOT Show auction is administered by the Hunting Heritage Trust for the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). All proceeds from the auction will benefit programs to further America's hunting and shooting sports heritage.
