Most of my rifles (multiple calibers and several twins) are synthetic and I view them as tools more than heirlooms. There is no sentimental value in any of them.

What would be a modern production heirloom rifle that you would hand down through the generations?

You'll get lots of different responses, but I'd say Model 70 first.

Montana Rifle Company, which is a copy of the pre-64 Model 70 with improvements to safety and better accuracy.

It is accurate and ready to go right out of the box.

I'd have to agree on the Model 70 or the Montana Rifle Co. I'd also pick a 'standard' type of cartridge; 243, 270, 308 etc.

The rifle that you have used well, possibly with them along
on a hunt will be the true "heir"loom that your heirs will treasure.
So if you buy something new & shiny be sure to get it bloody
and the shine rubbed off.

I feel the same way. But, my dad just bought this to be given to my grandson someday:

Man that ainít no joke.

If your looking at a heirloom rifle, I would be thinking Mauser 98, Rigby highland stalker, sako 85 with good wood, high grade Mark V Weatherby, Sauer, or something along those lines

If you want a lever gun then a turnbull in a 1885
