Most underrated rifle.
What is the most underrated rifle out there. I am not talk about SAVAGE. I am talking about a rifle that is out there that few people know about that is really good.

I'll throw out two, but they're both lever actions:
1. Henry .22--American made, slick action, nice wood and fit.
2. Marlin 1894--Americam made, available in pistol calibers, loads of fun to shoot.

My Marlin MR7 in 30-06. They were only manufactured a few years ( 1999 was the last I think ) outstanding rifle.

In MY opinion the Remington model 788 is perhaps the most underrated widespread rifle in existence. They regularly outshoot the 700s straight out of the box. I only have 1 left is the 7mm08 that my daughter lays claim to.

My brother had a 788 in 308. That gun was a shooting SOB right there. 100 yard .5" 5 shot groups with factory ammo.

I agree! I Think that was one reason Remington did not sell them long. For the following reason. That year I purchased a new Remington 700 BDL in 243 Winchester and a Remington 788 in 22-250. Well the 788 with all of its I believe (9?) Locking lugs on the bolt would out shoot the 700 any day. So I assume since it was almost like an economy rifle and embarrassed the company due to its extreme accuracy and being inexpensive,they may have dumpted the product line for that reason. I understand why a company would do that but what a shame. I wish I could find another one in great condition in 22-250. Since I had traded it many years ago.

Many surplus rifles are given short shrift. The VZ24 is just one of them. I also think the M1 carbine is underrated and was a pretty good deer getter back in the day.
