I am at least the third 'Fire owner for my .270 while it was still in the KS stock. The individual I bought it from, had bought it and sold it twice.

I'm relatively new here but enjoying it immensely. So please tell me what attributes make a rifle "Campfire" so I can pick my "Most" one to submit. Some nice rifles posted on this thread.

Rifles, actions, stocks, barrels makers, scopes and chamberings all go through periods of popularity (or the opposite) here.

Watch what's current with the cool kids and you'll have the current rage. Who's "running" what matters. smile

Nice looking.

What do you think of the Cooper stock? Any idea of the stock weight? I like the looks of it.

I submit this "Campfire Rifle" for consideration:
Original purchase was a Weatherby MK V Stainless Carbine, 7mm-08 with 20" barrel; only made for couple years; found in pawn shop
Upgraded stock to McMillan Sako Classic for a 6 lug Weatherby, found on Campfire from member in Alaska, literally needle in haystack find. Transformed the rifle. USPS took a MONTH to get my check there and seller held it for me. thanks again.
Zeiss Diavari Victory 2.5x10x42 scope bought from Campfire member. Far as I am concerned; the finest scope available for a woods rifle.
Now wears a black Montana Sling; found new in box at estate sale for $5
S&K real stainless rings and bases; paid retail, Oh well; they are cool.
7lbs, 1oz, no sling
My forever southern whitetail rifle; would not change a thing about it or replace it with anything. Sometimes things just come together; without a plan.

This one is pretty well Campfire Kosher. Have posted it before.

SA 700, SS #2 Shilen 23", McWoody Mtn Rifle, bedded and free floated, NF Forceplex SHV 3-10x42 in Talley rings, Timney 510.

And, of course, it's a 6.5 Creed... cool

I bought a Savage 11 in .243 here on the fire to use as a donor action. I decided to go ahead and throw a Sightron 3-9 on it that I also bought here. Took it out back and shot it and that saved it from disassembly. It is now my daughter’s rifle for the last 5 years and she just keeps piling up nice bucks with heart shots. I couldn’t get it away from her if I offered to trade her one of Sako’s even if the Krylon camo paint job that it came with is almost worn off.😀

"Campfire Rifle" - Maybe my 77/44 in stainless with a plastic stock. Haven't put any tape on it yet, but it's been wet. Kills stuff with one shot, never complains and never misses. It prefers lead. A lot of it.

If the question inquired about 'awesome' or maybe 'eye pleasing' or other discerning aspects I'd offer a different opinion.
