    awww heck I cant resist............most proudly and staunchly......the BLR take down. Lightweight, reliable, fast, smooth, and chambered for some of the most powerful and longest range cartridges around. I have a custom one that i'm planning to build in ahem.......a lil cartridge that some folks might remember......the 416 NMA. But be careful though......some have witnessed the gearing fail. I personally have not had one single failure.

    Now I'm a CoPilot guy myself, but it is hard to beat the Blaser. Most accurate production rifle on the market today, 47 (?)caliber configurations and as fast as a semi auto. It is the ultimate for the serious hunter or shooter.

    The Blaser r93 is a takedown, but not a lever gun.

    The Blaser looks nice but my vote has to go for the Dakota 76 Traveller. I've only held one but man was it nice...

    Now if I could only get the piggy bank to stop hemmoraghing...

    Oh wow, that indeed would be a great survival/hunting tool! Does the scope mount on the barrel or the receiver? If on the barrel, then 2 scope sited calibers would be available with no need to zero and scare the game away.

    I think you're right but I also think the Dakota would shoot good enough

    I've never owned a take down rifle but I'd love the opportunity. They've always seemed quite a bit of coin for the privilege of taking them apart.

    I have a takedown M12 Winchester thats just neat to take out occasionally. A highpowered rifle that did that would be the cat's meow.

    Out of curiousity what's a TD Blaser going for these days? It seems the regular one is pretty spendy!

    My H&R Handi-rifle. .45-70 & 12ga. The scope mounts on the barrel just like the Blaser!

    We can afford what we can afford......

    Now if only they had a .338-06 barrel, then it'd be near perfect-for me at least.

    Default Had to think for a moment...

    Several good ones in the rack that I use a lot, but not necessarily utilizing the 'take-down' feature....
    Marlin 39TD .22 lever
    Browning semi-auto .22
    Model 12 Winchester 12 ga, 26" solid rib with adjustable choke
    Model 24 Winchester 16 ga, 28" improved/modified
    Four barrel H&R Buffalo gun .45-70 that I added a 20" .45 Colt, 20" .500 Smith, and 24" fluted .204 Ruger barrels to. I'm really thinking hard about sending it back one more time for a 24-25-26" 20 ga. barrel and set it up with tubes.
    Aesthetics mean a lot to me, and as wonderful as they may be, the Blazer's leave me cold...just not what I like, and the only other centerfire rifle that was a takedown that I had that I liked was a 99 Savage, 26" octagon chambered to .30-30.

    NOW, not trying to hijack the thread, but how many of you would rather use a folder or collapsing gun than a take-down? I'm sure liking the utility of my M4 clone, 870 Remington, and Mini 14 with factory side folding stock. No fumbling around with separate components, they shorten up into handy small packages that can be used either way, and very little impact on function or usefulness.......these guns I use both ways, but the take-down guns I have stay assembled, and rarely get broken down.
