How about a Cooper Rifle. My father finally broke down and bought one last year, and he's extreamly happy with it. Ive only shot it once and was able to put 5 shots under a dime. He shot his best group the other day, all 5 in the same hole, so he says. 100 yds, .223 cal.
As far as building a gun, I would agree with the rest of the folks on here. I've never built one but my dad has and he's more proud of that then most of his collection. Little Rem 660 in .350 Rem Mag
Theres always someone out there thats better then you. I'm that guy.

Really, you can do most of the work yourself. Only part I paid to have done was the drill & tap for the scope mounts, but my buddy had the blueing tanks and a lathe to set the headspacing, so I saved a few bucks there. Just had Douglas deep chamber one of their barrels for 7x57mm (wanted a Mauser rifle in a Mauser chambering)and put a Winchester Featherweight contour on it. Used a semi inletted Boyds JRS stock with a XX wood upgrade and sanded the heck out of it to trim it up and add a slight palm swell to the grip. My buddy is really good at stock fitting and he helped me with a few things here and there so now it points like a fitted shotgun. I just love that rifle.

So Sunday I was at Cabelas , They had a Kimber 84L in .270 and an Model 70 in .308 . New Kimber and not a Pre-64 but an older Winchester. I'm even more torn then ever. Both are really nice guns beautiful wood smooth bolts. I'm having a hard time deciding.
And a Desert Eagle that's one great big ol' pistol
I mean .50 caliber made by badazz Hebrews

Pre 64's are great guns. I built my 270 long range gun from that action. It is sweet shooting and one of the few bolt guns you can get to the pin if you have to without any hassle

I have a pre '64 mod 70 in and a newer model 70 (they were offered in both push feed and crf, mine's crf like a pre '64) that was made shortly before Winchester stopped building them at the New Haven plat. Honestly the newer rifle is every bit as smooth and well built as the pre '64.
