Favourite rifles

These are two of mine favourite rifles. Lee Enfield nr 1MK 3× and a German mauser G33/40 carbine. Great to shoot and looks good.

Excluding 22LR caliber, the one rifle that I have that would be grabbed in a SHTF scenario over all others I own is my select fire FN/FAL. It is very accurate with standard sights and very controllable on full auto.
Here it is on the left end with my 2 M14s (which would be left laying in the driveway for whoever wanted them If I had to di di mau) and others.

I fought the feelings for years in favor of sexier .30 cal models, but I have to say my favorite is the plain old boring AR-15. What can I say -- it's a great combination of accuracy, reliability, light weight, ergonomics, ease of maintenance, plentiful and cheap spare parts, and is customizable enough that I can make it fit me and my shooting style perfectly.

I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
If I had to lay upon the floor
Shoot people crashing through the door
Baby I can't fight this feeling anymore

Than live as slaves to you”

Oh gosh, answering this question would start a fight inside my safe that would sound like a Hefty bag full of pots and pans thrown down the stairs.

The fighters would be my Marlin 39As, my Garands, my M1A, and my those guns left to me by my dad and grand dad.

Those rifles are in that safe because they *are* my favorites.

I love my old Remington M722 in .257 Roberts, my grandpa's old gun and what I shot my first deer with at age 11 in 1963. I took one last season with it, 50 years after the first one. Hunted with it just for that reason.

If I want a rifle, not black powder, I'll generally go for my stainless Remington M7 in .308, though. That thing is an awesome hunting rifle.

I didn't know Sako made stainless, fluted rifles. That's a fine looking and functional piece.

Rob, that's the Finnlight model and they have been making them for a while now.

I probably have more rifles than a guy should but I loose interest in them quickly. I'll either build a rifle or buy a factory model but the glamor in it quickly subsides and its off to another. As far as favorites go I have none zip,zero!

To date my favorite is the AR. You can buy them in 22 to 300 win mag! It has so may uses and infinite combinations.

I have yet to shoot an AK but I have a feeling it will give the AR a good run for its money on my favorites list.

My Winchester M70 Safari Express in 375H&H.
I step out of the shower wearing nothing but an AR-15 and a frown.

Superior gear will never make up for a lack of training or attitude.

What ever happened to the pride of ownership of a rifle exhibiting all of the characteristics of the rifle maker's art….flawless metal finish perfectly inletted into a beautiful claro walnut hand checkered stock? One that shoots in the 2's and 3's like this one?

For shooting fun, the Garand.

For SD, a good AR, nothing else even close.
Freedom's natural course is to degrade to a level commensurate with the tolerance of the oppressed.

Gosh, so many rifles, so much fun. OK, it has to be my Savage 93 .22M. I bought this stainless rifle on gunbroker.com, had my gunsmith thread the barrel, changed to a Boyd's gray laminate stock, and mounted a Nikon 300 BDC scope. It is stupidly accurate and an affordable hoot to shoot.

A Remington model 514 .22 lr. It was my first gun. My mom bought it for me for Christmas in 1962. I don't shoot it much anymore. But every time I pick it up it brings back memories that you just can't put a price on.

I call it the "Tactical Tree Rat Sniper System Caliber .22"

The rest of you know it as a Wallyworld special 10/22 with Tech Sights and a little stub of rail with a TLR-1 on the forend for late night armadillo excursions.

Nice guns, and even better with the new rear aperture sights.

Whenever I've mentioned how much better my SKS is with the TS 200 version of TechSights, few people seem to comprehend (or care).
Maybe they feel that the installation requires any skill at all. It requires none.

Scratchndent - I like it, simple and sturdy.
