    Second the Compass. Tough as nails, accurate, and cheap. Doesn’t get much better than that.

    Personally I would want something made of stainless steel and metallurgy/springs that are not 100 plus years old with readily available parts.

    I'd go for the Ruger Ranch. I have one in 7.62x39 and one in .308 would be use full too

    A stash rifle to me says iron sights, and having some basic spare parts.
    Put in a cache with a care package of accessories (spare parts, cleaning gear, SLING) and ammo.

    If I were to buy a bolt gun now, it would be a Sako. This is the one I’m thinking of, but I’ve just ordered a muzzle loader from Pedersoli, so I’ll have to wait a bit.

    What exactly a stash rifle and what is it used for? I own a Winchester model 70 carbine in 308, is that a stash rifle? - would it be used for something other than hunting? confusing thread...
