It's a pretty decent list for a change.  :)

I have two of them and want three more for my collection. The Savage Model 99 in 250-300 Savage might be the hardest to find. A Sweet 16 Browning A-5 might be the next hardest to find.
It is a fine list in my opinion.

No arguments or fights on this list, one writers convincing opinion on worthy firearms.

I also agree, this is a pretty good list. I only own a few of them though.
Come and take it.

Thanks for the link BM. Hard to argue with those choices.

I have 6 out of 8. I donít have a Model 99 (kinda want one though) or an Auto-5.

Although Iím sure theyíre good shotguns, Iíve never liked the aesthetics of the A5. I canít argue with any of themÖ

I had my .250 in a 99 rechambered to .250 AI. I also have a 99 chambered in .303 Savage made in 1925 and a 99 EG in .300 Savage made around 1948.  MY .250 was a later model with the tang safety so it doesn't have any collectors value.

The only one we don't have is the A5,  I really don't shoot that many shotguns anymore , I wonder if they made a 28 ga then I might be interested.

Never had a 99 or A5, wish I had a safe full of them now ;)

could retire lol -

Interesting how tastes are - working on a gun swap deal with a guy for a wby locally and this would be his list! :) very old school, kinda cool;

I have 4 of them. My dad had 3 A5's, a 12,20 and a 16 gauge.  I guess they ended up with my brothers.

The only one I haven't owned is the Marlin 336, still have my uncle's savage 99 in 30-30(in very poor shape), a few 870's and 10-22's and more than a few Mark V's   ::) around here
