Re: Right Out Of The Box----

I see no one voted for the Henry. Understandable, in as much as most Henry's sold are chambered for pistol rounds, but I have to say that for rifle work under 100 yards, the Henry will do just fine plus it has to be the smoothest cycling lever gun I've ever shot. Yes, I own one chambered in 44 Remington Magnum with a full, mirror polished brass receiver, octagon barrel and iron sights.

The craftsmanship is flawless, the furniture is beautiful and it's more of a wall hanger than a beat around lever rifle. Mine hangs on the wall btw.

I chose the 44 magnum chamberinbg to compliment my S&W 44 revolver. I send 240 grain Sierra Sportsmasters with H335 as the propellant in both guns.

An all around great whitetail round in either firearm.

Thanks for reminding me. After agonizing over recent Marylyn/Rem crap, I don't how I ever overlooked Henry. Don't overlook the Sierra 210's either.

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

I have to go with CZ on this one. I have never seen an inaccurate CZ, although I am sure a bad one slips out now and then. In my experience, CZ rifles will shoot just as accurately out of the box as anything out there, maybe a bit better. On top of that, you get a much higher quality rifle for the money. It is possible to outperform a CZ and to have higher build quality, but you will have to spend twice the money to get there.

CZ is my first choice. The FN made Winchesters are a close second.

In this day and age, I would submit that we rifleman are truly blessed with the range of choices we have today. The truth is, just about every manufacturer turns out accurate rifles. You can choose your price point and the other features, but there are a lot of accurate rifles being made these days. There are CHEAP rifles that shoot accurately, there are rifles that offer VALUE for the money, and there are custom rifles where the SKY IS THE LIMIT.

My comfort zone is in the VALUE category. I like to have an accurate rifle that is also a joy to own, carry, and shoot. Regardless of which category of rifle one prefers, the beauty is that there is an accurate rifle available for almost any budget.

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

I unfortunately had to vote for Savage. I say "unfortunately" because at the start of my firearms fascination years ago Savage wasn't highly looked upon, especially their actions. However, over the recent years Savage has turned it around and is truly the manufacture you'll get the best bang for your buck for a hunting rifle. Back in the day (Belgium and early Japan models) Browning would have been my vote hands down, but just as many manufactures have lately their quality has taken a huge turn for the worse. I tell many of my customers now to stick with a trusted, good condition, used gun purchase.

They are not on the list, but very hard to match! I'm talking about Heym's models SR 21 + straight pull SR 30. Superb accuracy, and, and, and... the whole package shows craftmanship at its best.
