Thread: best rifle manufacturer, done before but fashion changes

    best rifle manufacturer, done before but fashion changes

    I know this will have been done before but humour me Fashion and tastes change so what I want is your top 3 manufacturers. Not caliber not cartridge not for a particular animal in mind but reputation, quality, accuracy, looks and even bragging rights etc.

    The only limitations are no H&H or purdy [London guns] etc or 'black guns' lets keep it under say 5,000 for a new stalking/hunting rifle less scope and other accessories.

    So what are your suggestions, I will post my own later.

    Ok off you go

    I'm afraid I can't see past Sako, unless you can't afford one in which case Tikka. I don't like anything else really. Used to like my CZ's but they're old hat now. So I have 2 x Sako 85's instead, I'm down with commercialism!

    Blaser for centrefire & CZ for rimfire, AYA for shotgun

    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    Sako for CF
    Anschutz in RF
    Beretta in shotguns

    All are accurate, solidly built, ergonomically designed and reliable.

    would have loved to own a ph m85 but that will never happen would also like a sako varmint also unlikely
    wouldnt buy a rpa or blaser if i could afford one as dont see what they will do that a lesser priced rifle wouldnt
    for hunting or stalking am happy with my t3 varmint does what it says on the tin
