Thread: Which off the shelf rifles are the top 3

    Which off the shelf rifles are the top 3

    On the back of the Blaser thread - which rifle would you say were the top three for quality and function and also looks to you, not just the rifle you own but if you could pick from the shelf what would you have in order of the best first...

    Mine would be -

    Sauer (202) Highland
    Mauser M03 Stalker
    Merkel RX Helix

    Regards,

    Gixer

    Mauser 98 - yes they are still making them, but only right handed.

    Sako 75 - Stainless Action I

    Sako 75 - Stainless Action III

    Sako 75 - Stainless Action IV

    Not very inventive I appreciate, but if it works as well as these, why look elsewhere
    Sako 75 6.5x55mm-Z6i 3-18x50. MauserM12 .308-SIII 6-24x50. Beretta 690 III Field 12b.

    If I happened to stumble into a pile of free cash, it would be a Sauer 202 Takedown, a Merkel K96 drilling and an old Mannlicher-Schoenauer, with that last one admittedly not really being off the shelf anymore.

    The one that fits you best , feels the nicest and is the one with which you achieve acceptable accuracy

    Whether that is a Merkel, or a 60`s Parker Hale, whatever one is the best rifle for you.
