    Let's stick with factory production "off-the-shelf" guns for this thread. Non-custom guns please.
    Slight modifications are fine, but let us know if they've had any and what mods they have.
    Rifle, pistol, revolver, shotgun, whatever.

    Mine would be:

    1. S&W 629 Ported 44 Mag revolver...before side lock.
    2. Savage Mark II FV bull barrel accu-trigger .22 LR bolt-action rifle.
    3. "Baby" Glock Gen. 2 model 26 9mm...I know it's a fluke, but groups like crazy!
    4. Kimber "Made in Clackamas, Oregon" 1911 .45 ACP...made before the move to New York.

    None of the above have had any modifications.

    All of them. I'm the one that isn't accurate.

    I usually have a hard time avoiding tinkering with my guns, but I have a few that were so good right out of the box that I didn't want to risk messing with them by attempting any "improvements".

    1. Armalite M-15A4T Carbine 5.56x45. This rifle out groups most of my bolt guns!
    2. S&W 651 .41 Remington Magnum. Amazingly accurate with just the factory iron sights, commonly 1" groups @ 30 yards off a rest.
    3. Remington 700 Classic .221 Fireball. Sagerats beware!
    4. Ruger Mark II stainless 5.5" 22 LR. I like to shoot empty shotshell hulls with this one until I cant hit them or see them anymore.

    I own a Marlin MR-7 and XL7, both in .30-06 and both are dead-bang accurate with my handloads. I also own a Model 99 Savage that was my grandfather's and a Savage American in .308 Win. that is more accurate than I have so far made it.

    The only guns I get a chance to shoot very often are my handguns. Of those, I would have to say my S&W 686 4" is the most accurate.

    I was impressed with my XDm 9mm when I first gave it a run. It made me look like a decent shot ;) (and the fact that I found a plastic gun that I liked was even more amazing).

    These two guns have helped me take my pistol skills to a whole new level.
    I love my Sigs, but never realized how much tighter groups could get!

    All my firearms are super accurate at 2 inches away!!!

    My Remington 700 .270 and my Winchest M70 Featherweight .308 are both highly accurate. I've put 3 consecutive rounds through 1 hole with the 270 twice. But like everyone else, the gun shoots much better than I do!

    My favorite thing to do is get people to shoot my little Smith 3913, it is a brilliant little gun, and never fails to impress with it's accuracy. Looking forward to a larger rifle, right now it's just my Sig 522, which is pretty accurate for a semi auto .22, but it isn't quite what I'd call a tack driver at longer ranges.
