I know there's lots of pro's and con's about the Mini 14, but, if used as it was designed, for what it was designed for, it just goes about its business and does it well.

Even though the FNAR is fairly new, its overlooked a lot of the time due to the AR-10 style rifles on the market. I hear a lot of people complaining about the FNAR's complexity, the thing is, its piston driven and robust as all mess while still offering sub-moa groups just like the design it was built off of, even if they were built for hunting by good ol' JMB.

I lusted after that Ruger 44 carbine for a long time. Seams like a great truck gun for bustin a yote if you had the change or putting down farm animals if the needed it.

Well, the Remmys and M1 Carbines and the Ruger 44s, AKs, etc, are pretty well known, and well thought of-

My candidate for "under appreciated" was a decent little rifle and caliber- brought out too late, and eclipsed by the rifle that came after it.

I nominate the US Army caliber 30 rifle. No, not THAT one.

The 30-40 Krag. Modest recoil, decent power and range, relatively light, could "top up" the magazine with bolt closed, and was the "gateway" rifle for smokeless ammo for the US military.

I've always thought Marlin rifles as a whole were underrated.

I agree on the Mini-14, It's a great all-a-round rifle/carbine. The Ruger .44 carbine was and is a great brush bustin pig and deer getter. I also like the Krag, but would prefer the Mauser 98..
