Just wanted to get some opinions on what you folks would categorize as top quality (well made) hunting rifles that don't draw a lot of attention in the hunting/collecting arena or "fly beneath the radar" a lot of the times on used gun racks - perhaps due to plain appearances or an unfounded perception of poor quality?
I'm ususally a sucker for stray dogs and am always drawn to what might be considered "ugly or plain rifles" yet, in no way, lack build quality.
A recent article in Rifle magazine touted the Schultz & Larsen rifles as being world class yet still considered a bargain since not many people are farmiliar with them.(Well, at least not until advertised in a national publication
) I had never heard of these rifles so was fascinated. I recently spied an Ithica LSA 55 in .308 at a local gunshop and thought this to be a beautiful rifle in both construction and appearance at a modest price but had never crossed pahs with one before! Apparently built by Tikka and imported by Ithica during the 70's.
I like the Remington 721's/722's and Winchester 670's very much also.
What other rifles may not be well known or go unheralded/unappreciated on the used racks??
