Discover. Are you looking to collect Ruger No. 3 rifles, or shoot them? Hopefully another RCA collector will respond to your needs. I only own one No. 3 in .44 Magnum and it is not currently for sale. The No. 3 rifle is not discussed in the Clayton book. I do not know of any books with the information you seek. Very few people collect them, compared to the No. 1 rifles. Good luck in your search. Brass Frame/Lee

CL R, A fellow Collector named Chad Hiddelston has a book out with all the Ruger info you are looking for on rifles and pistols...Google RENE and get his book. The #3's are neat little collectibles, the hardest is probably the 44 Mag then the 45-70, the 30-40 Kraig, then 22 Hornet, and last the 223. Look on Gunbroker and GunsAmerica and pound those gun shows and shops near you! RB

Discover Chad's book does cover the Number 3. I am pretty sure he sends a 8.5x11 Printed copy when you first sign up for his Red Eagle News Exchange. I am not sure if he has any copy's of it in the small book form left or not.

Send me an e-mail at Ruger1nut@aol.com and I can get you in touch with him.

I do know of a guy or two that do collect them but like Lee said, the interest ins not as great as for Number Ones

That keeps the price down but also the information

Just my luck! I love No. 3s and have been accumulating them for a while now. Bought a new one (.223) in 1981, and still have it today. I'm currently only missing the .44 & the .22 Hornet to make up a complete collection of all calibers.
Best regards,
