Should it be? Even to No.1 out of the box is accuracy deficient.

The can be made accurate but out of the box. accuracy is questionable....

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

I see Henry got no votes as well. I've always liked the looks and function and I'd like to own one at some time in the future but not a .22.

Don't believe I can afford a Cooper, I'm retired.

I guess I'm kinda odd here.

I've always liked the looks of a Ruger #1, and contrary to what some posters have said; I've seen a few of them shoot very well. But deep down inside, I'm an 1885 nut! I love Hi-Walls and Lo-Walls, and have a passion for Savage 99's (everybody should own at least one in their lifetime). Might add here that I've seen some pretty accurate Hi-Walls in my lifetime

I own three Marlin 39's. A 39M that's literally drove me nuts over the years, and a standard 39A that shoots 1.38" groups at 100 yards. (five shot). I also have a 39 commemerative with gold inlay and an octagon barrel. Still has the hang tags on it! But my 541's are always more accurate

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

A year ago I would have said Remington...but then I bought this Winchester (new, FN made)



And it shoots...and I'm not even done tweaking the loads yet...below is 175 Huntiing VLD's.

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

I voted Savage. Not from my personal experience, but from the experiences of other shooters I personally know.

Once case in particular. A lady hunter just last week shot a doe antelope at 710 yds with a little 6BR........Savage factory target rifle. They tell me, it shot a 3 shot group at 600 yds that was an inch! Pretty darn tough to beat that with most any "out of the box" factory rifle.

I've never owned a Savage, but lots of serious varmint shooters are swearing by them now.
