I also vote for the 700 Classic. Had one of the very first, when they were offered in several calibers each year. Mine was a 30-06. After about 20 years, I blueprinted it and changed it to a 280AI. Had a match barrel and a McMillan stock, and was so heavy I sold it. Should have left it alone.

I used my nephews Remington model seven in 7mm08 on one hunt a few years back. Light and accurate and low recoil , my three requisites for a favorite rifle .

For a while in the 1964-65 era Winchester(Us Repeating Arms) could not keep up with the orders. They offered a push feed 243 that came with along action. I stumbled onto one of them in the late 70's and had it rechambered to 6mm-06. That was a dandy fine coyote killer. I parted ways with at about child number 3 in favor of keeping my all time favorite red pad tang safety Ruger 77 in 243. I'd let them bury me with that gun but I know what's going to happen to this old sack of bones laying in that hole in the ground and can't bare to think of that rifle getting some rotten "me" on it!

gpa: No, have them bury you with it, you'll feel much better about taking it with you.... Just have them, or someone pack it in cosmoline, a light coating so as not to be any real problem cleaning it out later, place it in a nice scabbard on top of you or wherever ya won't leak out on it. You can even separate the two of you with a sheet of plastic or even a buckskin. It will look nice. Then later on when you feel like it you can always clean it up and play with it. There ya go, Bob's yer Uncle and problem solved.... Just sayin'.

Mine would be an old Ithica Model 72 Saddlegun 22LR which was made in Germany. Frankly it's a tack driver.

Same design as the Henry H001 but I don't know how they compare.

I had an Ithaca lever 22 mag single shot, back at that time, which actually was a falling block. Those Ithacas were nice .22s

I believe they were made by Erma Werke in Germany.
