    While pump action would be my first choice in shotguns, I never really had an interest in pump action rifles. I do like 22 rimfire rifles and octagon barrels, so #1 would be one of my top choices. I really like shooting 22s, and it's not all that expensive. My second choice would be the 6.5 Swedish Mauser. there used to be a lot of those around, but I don't see them anymore.

    The mag tube on the 14s and 141s has a curly Q spiral for a reason. You can load spitzer pointed ammo in it without fear of a chain fire. John Pederson was a pretty smart guy.

    John Pederson and Dieudonne Saive seem too often conveniently forgotten by the cult of John Moses Browning.

    They will ship to your FFL. Just let me know if you're jumping in so I can bow out gracefully. It's a clean gun, the stock cracks don't go through and won't bisect the wrist if they grow.

    Since you already load for the .300... I'd say #3.

    Pumps are fun... I like them, and prefer pump shotguns, too.

    And the winner is, "rifle #4"... The Swede is a perfect multi use caliber and the rifle is the best looking on the stage!

    Thanks brother,
    I just lost my job. I have no cash. Lots of desires though.
    I appreciate your thoughtfulness....

    You got THAT right!!! There are still people out there that think Browning created the Hi-Power when in fact he had almost nothing to do with it. You FAL fans can thank Saive for that one as well. And Pederson? He was Remington's designer for decades and developed a score of guns for them. He was respected and admired by both Browning himself and Julian Hatcher.

    None of them really.
    The #4 Swede is the closest.

    Well, I probably paid too much, but I ended up with the 760 in .300 Savage as that one spoke to me. The 2x7 glass is decent, and right in the wheelhouse for what I will be using this rifle for with a heavy German style reticle. I plan to refinish or possibly replace the butt stock with one with more figure if I can find that. Even if accuracy is mediocre, it will be a good woods rifle, and will fill a hole in my life. I probably missed out not going after #2. It went for less than I thought it would. IMHO #1 and 5 went for far too much, and #4 was probably the best deal all around, but I didn't "need" another Mauser sporter, even though I love that caliber also. No remorse yet, I pick up my rifle Thursday, can shoot in my back yard and I have 2 different loads to try, so we'll see. So long as it doesn't throw keyholes, it will suffice for it's intended use.
