I would like to nominate the Kimber 82-G action. I purchased 2 of these rifles from CMP. One of these was the "rusty" one to shoot and/or modify. Without going thru the previous incarnations, this is what I have wound up with:

It is mostly Kimber, 82-G action, SSV stock, and I grafted an Anschutz 1712 takeoff barrel by threading the receiver end and keeping the Anschutz chamber.
I posted about it HERE
Haven't had it outside yet but shoots very well indoors at 25 yards. I have a small trigger issue to work out. Needs a good adjustment, sometimes the firing pin follows the bolt on closing. Member PWNolan suggested it might need more sear engagement.
With a smaller scope it could qualify as a squirrel gun.
