I would recomand a used 06 at a gun show. Yea, you might get one that don`t shoot, but you can get a new one that don`t shoot also. I have never seen an 06 that was shot out. I have had about every brand of gun on the market and they all work, some are just pretter and some the actions are smother. I now buy all Savage rifles that I consider to be to cheap because I can change the barrels myself and I like to play with wildcats. If you buy a used gun that don`t shoot up to par it probly did not good new. With these guns start by floating the barrel and bedding the action and you find it will probly shoot better than you can. I also give about every gun I buy a trigger job. If you reload you can taylor loads to your rifle.

For the lower price point, it is tough to beat the Marlin XL7, XS7, etc.

The rifles with the synthetic stocks can be located for approx. $300 - $330...sometimes on sale for just under $300. For out of the box accuracy, they are comparable to the Remington 700.

These rifles offer some features commonly found on much more expensive models.
