In the lesser price range Merkel is one to look at.
Im the upper ranges just about any of the great old european gun makers such as Holland and Holland, Rigby, Purdy Etc Etc will do. Take a look at Cabelas web site. They have a "fine gun room " section that should give you an idea. It's fun to drool over too.

I own Two Kreighoff's. Both Shotguns. A k-80 and a k-20. The quality is everything you would expect it to be. I've shot maybe 75 thousand rounds though my k-80 in six years of competition and practice and the triggers are still perfect. It has been serviced by the factory once but it was just a routine cleaning.
I will own a dbl rifle at some point. .470 NE maybe I'm not sure. I don't have a need at the moment.
When you are ready to buy, Contact Kurt Grates @ Great Lakes Sporting Arms in Walled Lake, Michigan. He will give you the best price on these firearms. On occasion you will see them at Cabela's, but this is not the right place to make a purchase of this type.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
