My favorites
Marlin 1895 45-70
Marlin 336 30-30
Winchester model 94 30-30
Remington 760 gamemaster pump 30-06
Out of the 4 my most favorite is the Winchester model 94, my first hunting rifle ,circa 1976-77. Dad bought it for me brand new out of the white elephant in Spokane for 79.99. I went from a bb gun to a 30-30.

Reminds me of a worn, though not abused, 1943 vintage La Coruña Mauser in 7.92×57㎜ I owned and carried afield back in the day. I had to part with it in early adulthood due to bad situation. Long since moved on, of course, and firearms shenanigans has been all over the board since, but still sticks in my memory. :s0155:

Interesting post, Gent.
My brother and I were talking about divvying up the guns the other day.
I think out of the entire collection, all I want is my shotgun, the 16 gauge that belonged to Dad's father and Dad's '98 Mauser.
My brother says he's happy to take the rest.
 
A couple more. I grew up with wood stocked guns and transitioned to polymer (Hogue, particularly) for a few reasons, but they NEVER have the proper look that wood does.
Here's a couple more. The first one is in a new wood stock after spending all of it's days previously in a factory "boat paddle" or a Hogue.

Then this little thing. The only problem is it's so nice I'm afraid to bang it around.
