What kind of rifle actions do you have or want to have?
What kind of rifle actions do you have or want to have?
I like the Lever action the best but then again I never got into real big game hunting. Biggest game we had was deer in heavy woods.:smt023
All I've got right now are .22s.
well I like a bolt action over any other but I do own a few Class3 guns and enjoy taking them out for a run some days.
A. Semiauto-put a hi cap magazine on this baby, you're ready for the rioters and looters, after the next Tornadocalypse. Also great for bear hunting in .30-06/8mm/.308.
7. SKS-D or M
8. .30 carbine
13. Johnson 1941
15. Saiga Hunting rifle, .30-06 or .308.
B.Bolt action: my faves:
1. Pattern 17 Enfield, .30-06.
2. VZ24 with bottom-grooved stock, 7mm Mauser caliber.
3. .303 #4 Lee-Enfield.
4. That crazy Lee-Enfield that takes AK47 magazines from Canada.
5. Lee-Enfield Jungle carbine, latest synthetic stock variant.
C. Lever actions:
1. Winchester 1895 carbine, bottom grooved hand guard; stripper clip
cariant. Caliber: .30-06.
2. Winchester 1892. .357 magnum caliber. You can use SKS stripper clips
to help load this gun more quickly(Think speedastrips with a revolver). With .357 magnum JSP rounds, you can probably nuke any big game animal on the North American continent.
3. Ruger .96-44. From what I hear, it's an awesome hunting/HD gun.
1. Pump action AR15 copy-like a thirty shot repeater.
2. Pump action AK47 copy-see above.
3. Colt Lightning repo, in a modern caliber.
I want a fixed ghost ring sight, on all rifles, a fiber optic brightly-colored front post sight.
I really, really want a lever action rifle, maybe in something like 357 mag. Right now my only rifle has a straight pull bolt. Love it!
I have a 'Black Rifle' and a Henry 'Golden Boy.' Best of both worlds. :smt033
I have a bunch of semiauto .22s and one old Winchester lever action
I'm a big fan of lever action rifles. I currently own two winchester model 1894 and a model 71 (.348).
I love all long guns.
But for me the bolt action is my favorite. It is a reasonable compromise between ROF and ease of brass colection. Brass tends to last longer in a bolt gun for reloading purposes. But don't get me wrong I love my AR's too.
For grab and go HD I keep the .30-30 Winchester, 2 mosseberg 500's(one 18.5" and one 20"), my HBAR, and a RRA M4gery in the front of the safe. Hope in time of need I can decide which one in time to defend myself (j/k).
Believe it or not the action I want is not on the list. I would like to have the 3 round burst add to my AR. Don't really care for full auto. Do you know if you need a class III for this? 357mag.
I did vote for the lever action. I enjoy them so much. I only have the Henry22lr and a puma 44mag. Like to get one in 30 30 and 357 mag
i would love to have a rifle w/3round burst. i have a semi auto mini14 and a pump 12g mossberg at this writing. ive never had a lever action or even shot one. all the others i have shot.
I like bolt actions but that is just me.
both of my .22's are bolt action.....
I have 2 bolt actions, 1 is a Stevens Model 200 in .308 Win, the other is a Tula T03-78-01 .22LR. And also, I have a CAI CETME semi-auto in 7.62x51/.308 Win. I would love to have 3 lever actions. 1 Winchester 1894 style
.45 LC, 1 Marlin 336 .30/30, and a Marlin 1895XLR .45/70. As for a pump I would like a Winchester Lightning style .22LR.
My father inlaw has a ruger #1 I absolutly love the action on that gun and the fact that it has a longer barrel then alot of guns but due to the feed the gun itself is actually shorter
Voted before I read the post. I voted semi-auto, because that's what I'm familiar with, but then saw the post asking what you'd like to have and I would say lever. I haven't shot it yet, but I bought a Henry rifle Sunday at the gun show. I grew up watching westerns and always wanted a lever-action rifle. Now I gotta shoot it!
For those long shots, there's nothing better than a bolt action(unless your a T/C fan),Enfield P17 has to be my farvorite.
If I'm packing through the woods,I'll take a Winchester 94.(this has to be one of the lightest hunting rifles around)
For all out shootin/plinking and having fun...It's a toss up between my AR,AK or HK91....with alot of Ruger 10/22 action in between.
I would really like to have a pump action rifle...that would add something new to my collection.
3 lever action - love em
4 single shot break action. like em a real lot
2 bolt action. they are ok but i didn't coose either
1 semi auto (.22) lot of fun, but wouldn't miss it like the lever or single shots.
I REALLY want a ruger #1
A month ago after taking a tactical pistol course, as i was leaving, the instructor talked about an up coming tactical rifle course. I asked if i could bring my Marlin 1894. They weren't sure how to single point sling it though (no saddle ring either):smt033

break open single shot. really like my 2 encores and 2 contenders,1 of each set up for rifle and 1 of each set up for handgun shooting.like these ones best, allthough i still like to play with my semi-autos,pumps,and bolt actions.
