    Have owned, BRNO600. Still own, Heym- Ruger single shot. I've shot a lorry load of deer with that rifle and most in the Chi area. My Mauser M03 great bit of kit. Not forgetting my Merkel combi.

    Without refering to my record of various firearms owned (many), I will list the various makes of rifle that I can recall owning at one time or still own.

    Parker Hale
    Midland
    Ruger 2 different models
    Tikka 3 different models
    Sako
    Beretta
    CZ 3 different models
    Winchester
    Marlin 3 different rifles
    BSA 4 different models
    Remington (first and last)
    Browning 2 different models
    Varberger
    Chapuis
    Unifrance (Zoli)
    and one or two other rifles of different makes.

    Some were better than others and most of them have been good rifles and well up to the task. Most I would buy again, few were without fault or niggle of some kind as purchased but after a bit of tweaking worked well. The best out of the box was undoubtably the Sako and Tikkas, the worst the Remington. In all honesty there aren't many bad rifles just the same as there aren't really any bad calibres just as long as they are legal and suited to the task. As always it comes down to personal taste and preferance.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I also hit "other" as I had a Weatherby.....and winchesters.

    I am usually content when the words "Made in Finland" are stamped on a rifle. Apart from Sako/Tikka the only rifle of real pedigree I regretted parting with was a Heym SR30 in .308.
