Now..Most over/underrated or loved/hated rifles!!!

Now that there's the really popular cartridge debate going on here, let's bring the actual devices that fire them into question. What rifles do you really love or hate? Whether you've fired them and loved it or hated it, despise it's ugly looks, love it's looks, hate/love the action, hate/love the feel of the rifle, can't understand why a certain rifle has so many followers?, etc... Doesn't have to be a rifle you own, owned at one point, or fired, just give us some talking points on all of the various leadslingers that exist out there. Could be a rifle used for hunting, or any of the "taticool" guns like AR's, AK's, and other military weaponry.

Re: Now..Most over/underrated or loved/hated rifles!!!

People for years had said that Savage put out the ugliest rifles but i used them and still do. I always wanted a Model 99 Lever action but never got one!
30 caliper guns are my preferred hunting guns in 30-30,308 and 30-06.

The mossberg dangerous game rifle is the cheapest gun I've ever held in my hand. I was in the market for. 375 and they come in a 375 ruger. I checked one out at the gun shop and it took a matter of 5 seconds to not buy that junk of a gun.

I don't care for anything tactical.

I don't care for AR's but my neighbor can own 100 of them and I don't care.

Browning x-bolt, had one and paid over 1k after optics and tax. Overpriced and overrated. Got the same or better accuracy out of my Mossberg ATR100 and every savage I own.

I don't hate it but I don't care for the Savage Axis. I own one. I will probably never sell it but I know I will never buy another. It is very accurate but I hate the feel of it. I wish Savage would have stuck with the Stevens 200 as their "budget" rifle.

I love the older Sakos. 1980s or earlier. Also like the older Weatherby Mark V rifles.

Was never a fan of the Browning X-bolt. The pump and lever rifles never impressed me, but that's just because I'm a bolt guy.

Favorite... Ruger Mark II 30.06 (Lost in a divorce)
2nd Favorite.... TC ENCORE 30.06
DISLIKE... Ruger American Sold it after 1 box of ammo, I know I had a lemon but none the less, I wont take that chance again.
