Default Real nice quality Single shot under 2,000

Leave off the contenders ,the Encores ,the H and R even the TCR and Ruger Number 1 what are some of the nice single shots that the average fellow can own for $2000 or under something not too common maybe but well made and nice?

Do you want something well made and nice or a shooter? I have a couple or three Handis that shoot sub-moa at 300 plus yards, custom blued and fit....oh yeah, sorry...forgot....they're just Handis. If you spend two grand do you get a sub-moa guarantee?

If you up it to 3k, I saw a gorgeous Merkel in .270 with 23" barrel and Swarovski scope today. That's a bargain for that rifle.

I have looked at both at the gun shows but don't see many any more. Tom Wanamakers is closed for now in Tulsa

Browning Hi Wall or Low Wall depending on caliber you want. I haven't looked at prices in a good while but you might still be able to get into certain C. Sharps models for $2000. I have a Browning low wall 22 hornet and a C. Sharps 1875 45/70 and both are nice.

Well here is my 2 cents worth. These reside in my present collection, all are lookers, and everyone of them gets shot, frequently. Some may turn their nose at the Henrys, but with my trigger work, they all shoot 3/4" with a scope, and better than I can with open sights. Everyone of these rifles will shoot, with about anything out there. I shoot these rifles on a rotating basis, no safe queens here. All are well cared for. I have had some Ruger #1 and #3's. The Henry's listed below, were more consistent, and outshot them, every one. These guns range in $$ between $300-$1200, what I paid for them. I feel like I got a deal on every one of them. One of my most treasured is the 7mm Mauser Rolling block. Bargains are out there, if you look hard, have the money at hand, and are prudent. I sold off a huge amount of $100-$300 guns, valued at that, that I usually had half that in, due to me being a gunsmith for 36+Years. I sold them off over 3 years, and accrued all these listed, in that same time frame, by attending local shows, and perusing the internet.
1. Browning Hi Wall-45/70, 28" tapered octagon
2.Winchester Hi wall-38/55 28" tapered octagon
3. Remington roller, made in 1990, 45/70, by Remington, 30" with MVA peep sight
4. Husqvarna 67, 12.7x44R or 50/60.
5, Pedersoli 1874 Sharps, 32" long range 45/70
6. H &R Trapdoor, Little bighorn, carbine.
7. Original Trapdoor, made in 1884, 45/70/, rifle, mint bore.
8. Original #1 Remington Roller, recased, rebarreled with a heavy 30" half octagon/round, restocked and blued.
9, Original Remington Military Roller, 7mm Mauser, mint bore, mint case colors, 95% blue and wood.
10. Henry Single shot 45/70, with beautiful grained walnut.
11. Henry single shot in .243 with waterfall grained walnut
12. Henry single shot in .30/30
13. Henry single shot in .223
14. H&R Buffalo Hunter, 45/70,32" barrel, walnut stock. This gun will shoot with any rifle listed above, irons, peep or scoped, with cast bullets, or some hot jacketed loads. I sold this once and was sick till I got it back.
Your thoughts welcomed on all this.

So being a gun smith do you still do any smith work or are you completely retired from that and just work on your own guns, always nice to know where we can get some work done if need be.
