    Bergara comments...

    Hi guys, some queries I canít really get answers for:

    -What model is the takedown model or models?
    -What are the Ďbestí models to consider as a platform to run?
    -Calibers Iíd prefer may include - 44 mag, 30-30, 308, 3006, a 6 or 6.5 calibre but have not seen anything apart from 243?

    I have had and still own an H&R but struggle finding barrels.
    If you can add constructive comment much appreciated.

    I personally have a 45/70 take down, if i was to do it again id get a stainless model. The takedown aspect doesnt really interest me.

    Do the non-takedown rifles allow for interchangeable barrels?

    I spent a bit of time shooting my mates .308 stainless take-down. Really nice rifle. I could be happy with it as my main rifle. His one had trigger job by Dean Maisey, and one of his suppressors too. I didn't do any serious accuracy testing, but enjoyed all the other aspects of it.

    that must've been really silky trigger, the factory trigger is pretty nice
