I still prefer the factory "round bolt" in these to any other rifle I have ever seen and the one I have is well used, pristine bore and shoots like the proverbial lazer.

To date, I have owned 8 of these superb little rifles, kept 6 as a couple had minor cosmetic issues and I have several ZGs as well. I have never seen an original 7x64B, I would do almost anything to get one of those actions to go with the ZG action I have to build a pair in 7x64B and 9,3x64B......great stuff,eh! smile

Kute, I have been offered a 21 7x64 Brenneke by a Gentleman I know in Queensland....he also has a ZG47 in the same chambering.
Both are close to pristine.

For me its a tie between my 3 Browning Aceras for first place. CZ 527 Target Royal comes in a close second. I have much nicer rifles that those 4 but for some reason they get picked up the most.

Probably my favourite, though not the one I hunt with the most, and not even the one I shoot the most is a Ruger #1 in 405 Winchester topped with a Leupy 2-7X33 VX-II. Shoots really accurately, and hammers both ends if you want to chase a 300 grainer downrange at 2500 fps.

And here's a 100 yard group I shot with hunting speed ammo as above.

For purely nostalgia, it would have to be the 1948 Browning pump 22LR that Mom gave to Dad for his birthday the year they got married. He willed it to me. I have no idea how many bullets have been chased out the muzzle on that one, but Dad told me that he used to buy a brick every payday (2 weeks). Still light matches with it.

Shootist :

I have a great admiration of the # 1s. I've had a few in the past, all.270s.

Regardless of cal/cart my preference is for the model similar to yours.

I like the A H forends and 22" blls. SWEET!

The TC encores are NOT in the same league w/# 1s.

They are:
