Some of the most reliable, yet seldom appreciated guns:

SVD Dragunov
S&W four-digit auto's
Radom (WWII 9mm Polish auto)

The Norinco 1911 handguns are IMO underrated along with the FEG (Hungarian) pistols, especially the copy of the Browning HiPower.

Surprised nobody’s mentioned the Makarov.
Also the PA63, (but that’s one of the PPK/s copies, as GBullet mentioned), and the Star autopistols; their steel ones are very sturdy. (Never had an alloy one; they may be very good as well.)

A lot of the military copies are good, too. The “FM” and Hungarian hi-power clones, and the Argentinian 1911’s come to mind.

I was only thinking about defensive handguns for some reason....

Agree completely on Savage rifles. I have a 10FP-LE with a Leupold scope, Rifle Basix trigger, and Harris bipod, that just chunks 'em out over and over, right in the same place. That's all I can ask from that kind of gun.

Also the low-end weatherby's. Mine's a 6 or 7 year old lightweight carbine .308 version, that has an amazingly smooth action, and absolutely the best trigger on any rifle I've ever owned. Most surprising was the price. I was shopping for a Remington model 7, or a Ruger Ultralight, when I found this. Exact same size as the model seven, and paid only $400 total, NIB. Made by Howa, I believe, and I've seen them lately even in walmart.


Soapbox time... How about a little semi-auto carbine that uses detachable magazines of up to 30 rounds, puts out more power than a .44 magnum revolver, yet has so little blast & recoil that my 6-year-old niece has fired one of mine, is SMALLER than a ruger 10-22, and can be had for under $300...? The much-maligned .30 carbine m1; unquestionedly would be my defensive carbine if my AR were suddenly unavailable or unusable.

unless they are WAY underpriced, relative to the more available, more tried and proven, lighter,more compact, more parts and accessories sort of guns,why bother? You wanna waste your time and money, go for it.

Older (read that inexpensive) double trigger s x s shotguns, only two shots but the ability to choose between loads is great for hunting or social situations.
Savage Mod 24, mine is .22lr / .410 - great choice when squirrel hunting.

Yugoslavian SKS's and M-48 Mausers. Inexpensive ammunition and very reliable. Almost the whole Taurus line.

doubles aint worth a CRAP for fighting. Not anyway, against anything that a pocket pistol couldn't handle just fine. So why bother to go GET the pos, if you NEED a gun? I've taken hundreds of birds with a bb gun. Dont need shotgun for THAT job. :)
