Had one of those Ortgies back in the day. Paid $50 for it, sold it for $100. Wish I still had it....

For a semi I'll go with a Remington 550 and a single shot a Gustolof k98 trainer.

I call it that because it has the same lion emblem as the pistols on it.

So that Lion.. (which is Kick ass mind you) is called Ortigie??? I think I am still missing something..

I always heard the lion referred to as a Dormant Lion, which I thought was kinda foreboding, considering Germany just lost the war and another would be on the way in a few years...

Valmet 150 Standard model target or 1950 Marlin 39 can't choose. And you thought I would say Suhl 150 ;)
Wow, I see you're as much of a rookie here as I am. Kind of a shock, huh?
And no, the Valmet is no surprise!

My favorite 22 is one I bought from "Preachere" back in 2011, it's a Polish Kbks 78 Wifama trainer. To this day I've never seen a better looking beech stock and it shoots like a dream.

Marlin 39-A Mountie, bought in 1962. Many an evil garden eating rabbit has bit the dust from this one.

Hard to narrow it down to one, but I must say the Erma/Iver Johnson 22 carbine I got in the 80's is still a very sweet rifle. Not shot much anymore due to lack of spares floating around but I know where to get a few parts. I also love the Savage Model 5 bolt action tube fed from the 30's. Very accurate.

I enjoy my AR15A1 with my M261 adapter installed in it. It is amazingly accurate. (Yes, it has an A2 stock and pistol grip on it in the pic. That has been retro'd back to A1)

I love my Tula TOZ 78-1. It's more accurate than I could ever be. I have a 3-9x32 and it will do quarter (.25¢) groups at 100 yds as long as you want to pull the trigger. Had a Marlin 995 that I gave to my son that is a sweet little carbine too. Very accurate but doesn't like the Winchester bulk ammo.

My lee enfield trainer is unforgiving with any mistakes but very accurate if you voncentrate.
The pp-sport just looks cool and eats about any 22lr ammo you put in it.ImageImage

Mine is the pre-war Winchester 69A that I inherited from my dad. Been shooting it for 60 years. For a sporter weight rifle with iron sights, the accuracy is still astounding.
