Yeah, I agree somewhat. Depends on the situation and the number of two-legged critters. I don't like the scope much, but I can be persuasive with the open sights:D Just hope it never comes to that.

If I could build a perfect survival rifle what would it be?

I would build (or just add stuff to it)
a Socom 16 with a regular M14 flash hider,
a sound suppressor,
a proper size scope,
harris bi-pod,
tactical flash light,
and a 100-round Beta-C dual drum

A .308 short barrell with a 12 bore/guage shotgun pump action undernieth with a five shot capacity. The rifle would be single shot bolt action with a good scope on it and full metal jacket amunition for the 308 and high power shotgun cartridges.

Like others have said , it depends on the situation . It depends on wether you think it's more important to have a rifle for hunting or one for battle .

My perfect rifle for survival is the Marlin 38/357 lever rifle . Same ammo as my handguns , effective out to 100yds. , 38's for small game , 357 for sd or larger game .

kinda hard, as a survival rifle i would love a ruger 10/22 but i'd also consider a marlin 336 in 30/30 for larger stuff.

I agree my 1894c seems to be my go-to gun right now. Fishing trips, camping... it is so light and handy, yet with 180gr Buffalo bore it has some serious power.

Heard to beat the versatility of a 12ga. My only other option would be the AK-47. The fact that the AK is considered a "peasant” gun should testify to its reliability and jack-of-all-trades stature around the world.

You´re right, but they are very expensive. And the stock isn´t the best for that use......

I was thinking a T.C. centerfire encore thats black composite and a blue steeled barrel, a folding stock, and a light weight bipod. The useful part of it is that its versitile. You could have a rifle in a specific caliber, or a 12 gauge shot gun. The downside is that it is a single shot, but when hunting deer in the wild it only takes one shot to get him. Also its like what the Native Americans used to say "when the first shot is fired its difficult to hear where the shot came from, but when the second shot is fired you have a pretty good idea".

a good living of the land rifle would be a 35 whelen chambered 98 mauser. You can handload it to take anything from rabbits to elephant and with a little planning you can repair most problems in the field with one or two tools.

Starting from scratch I'd get a good cammercial action, screw on a 22" barrel of a med/light contour, add a scout mount, properly fit synthetic stock, ching sling /w millet mounts, and a sngle set trigger.

If you carried some round ball/bullseye loads for small game,some 200 gr SP ammo for GP and a few 250 SP for moose/bear your covered unless you need to add a few solids for things that need them. And if your packing a 357 mag revolver you could interchange your cast bullets between firearms.
