My Collection

I am looking to start a firearms collection over the next few years or a life time. For this topic I’m merely talking about calibers/gauges and not makes. However, to contradict myself… I would like to know if they make a 410/22-250 over/under? I know they make a 22 S,L,LR but I would really like a 22-250.

To get back on topic my collection has started with what I thought would be the best all round... a 30-06. The following are listed in order of what I would like next… 16guage, 410/22 OU, 308 Win, 20guage, 7mm Rem Mag, 12/30-30 OU, 270 WSM and a 300 Win Mag. Is there any others that you would absolutely need in your collection? Also, I do plan on having some being lever, bolt and hinge for the rifles and all hinge for the shotguns… What other action would you get or suggest I should have? Feel free to write why…

Are you talking about user's or collector's? There would be a difference.

You listed some pretty common cartridges there. Now if you were to find a Model 99 Savage saddle ring carbine in 303 with some ammo, you'd have a collector. Maybe an old Newton in 256 Newton with some factory ammo, I think Winchester made it. In fact I think I heard somewhere that they also chambered some rifles for it. I have a K22 S&W and a K22 S&W, wouldn't let them go. Saw a Colt Trooper in 22 RF years ago in Denver and a German 98 Mauser in 22 LR, a training rifle. A rifle by Dick Bortmus would be high on my list, I have one built by Paul Jaeger in 1945. A Browning double Auto would be great, wish I still had mine, but afraid I'd use it. You might not believe this but many years ago Mossberg made a match 22 that had two screws in the stock, up front, to adjust the barrel vibration's. I also have a Savage model 1917 semi auto pistol. Didn't know they made them till I found this one, 32 auto. You might even be able to find an origional Ruger standard model 22 with a red hawk on the grip's. When the Strum part of Ruger died the hawk was changed to black.

Baikal makes some combo rifles but they only had a 410/22mag combo that was close to what you were looking for and 12ga/308 or 30-06.

I use all the rifles in my collection. I would not call myself a collector in the sense of having historical/rare types on the wall. I like to shoot them all and take them hunting with me.
