    Ruger 1A ... most accurate I've ever held. Great value...who said price was the driving issue. The question is who makes a quality rifle...and I will admit trigger pull can be an issue with some but that is simply and easily rectified.

    No one?

    At any rate, I'm a BIG fan of #1s as well. IMO one of the most beautiful rifles made today. There's three of the gorgeous rifles in the safe right now. (And believe me, that's not nearly enough of 'em. ;) )

    I'm with you BobMcG.... and, if one shot is not enough for the hunter...they best practice up! When you "depend" on a back up shot, you usually don't take time to make sure of buillet placement on the first one; but, that is an issue for another post, another place. Happy holidays everyone.

    Marlin makes quality stuff and they're made in the USA.

    Picked up a used Stevens M200,for 200.00,,basically a Savage 110 without the Fancy Trigger,,
    Savage has great customer service,,the Screw on barrel makes for easy Modification and future Barrel upgrades

    In 43 yaers of hunting I have only made a second shot 2 times . Missed then. Had couple other times i could have tried but was so suprized i missed I did not try just knowing the deer would fall died.

    fastforward If you don't like a stevens 200 trigger get a Rifle basix trigger. Cheap and a great trigger upgrade. Make it way easier to make a good pull compared to the stock trigger group.

    I found a website that shows how lighten the pull a little I also polished the trigger a little,,I,ll probablly go to a different trigger later but i recently bought a 26'' fluted steel target barrel in 223 cal,,so now I,m on the hunt for a stock up-grade

    I bought one when it was called the "Weather warrior." The action ripped itsself out of the stock. I have a new stock for it, but still have not found a long enough set of bolts to work with the new stock. I guess I will eventually get around to finding some. I must admit that I have not looked real hard. I hate the Savage factory brake on these rifles. I have no idea who engineered the thing, but the angles are way too steep. If I push my loads up using slow powder, I literally get hot powder in my face. I honestly think it is going to end up getting rebarreled into a 6mm/300win.
