Jim Brockman .458 Lott and Custom Ruger Number One: While he's primarily known for his souped-up Marlin Guide Rifles, Jim Brockman is one of the few gunmakers who has created a distinctive look for his bolt-action sporters. He uses slicked-up Dakota actions, laminated stocks, and a very flat blue. This one, a left-hander in .458 Lott, also has Brockman's unique pop-up rear peep. The barrel is by Krieger, and is nice and heavy. The price for this rifle was $5, 499, including Leupold scope and custom Talley rings and bases, and I was extremely pissed off when someone bought it the very first day.
