Your favorite classic hunting rifle(s)?

Sadly, I do not have any hand-me-downs hunting rifles because I got myself into hunting in my early 20s with the push of a friend. And since then, I would often stroll in the local gun store of PA and become enamoured with the blued and wood stock bolt guns - got hooked. I do not have an age spec for what is considered classic but merely its looks and craftsmanship - steel and wood. In my collection you will find SAKOs, CZs, and Rugers.

1936 Winchester Model 54 in 30.06. My Grandfather bought it new and gave it to me when I was 16 (1971). I have shot all my deer with it and it's been to hell and back a whole lot more than once. Due to the gun maintenance that was ingrained at a very early age, the bore is still pristine and it will still shoot a 1 hole 3 shot group.

Great question and thread topic OP. Love seeing all these great rifles and the memories that go with them.

Favorite small game is my Anschutz 1416 mannlicher.

Favorite big game is my pre-64 Model 70 in .270.

I would love to have a Kleinguenther K14 or K15 in .270 or .308 some day, especially if I ever moved to Texas.
