No category for "one of each?"

I guess you have to know what "favorite" means. It could mean:

1) the choice I have made most often: CZ
2) what I would purchase if I had no practical financial limits: Cooper
3) best out-of-the-box rifle in the safe: Anschutz
4) easiest to work on/most aftermarket parts: Ruger
5) most accurate (for me): CZ/Benchmark barrel
6) most versatile: Ruger
7) prettiest: take your pick

Interesting exercise. I guess my answer is CZ, but in ten years, I hope my answer is Cooper.

I chose Marlin. I own several rimfires including a nice CZ 452 but I like shooting offhand and a 39 with peep sights is a joy to shoot. Was shooting my friends 39A last weekend and was outshooting the CZ with iron sights. I own a Mountie and won an Internet mail-in offhand shooting contest with it even though I'm not that good a shot - the 39s are truly outstanding for offhand even though they're not known for great bench accuracy.

I have to say Marlin, the discontinued 39's. Followed by older Remingtons and Winchesters.

With 6 CZs, 5 S&Ws, 3 Rugers and 1 each Beretta, Chiappa and Walther, it looks like CZ by a muzzle.

Ruger because of what they have done for the industry/sport.

It's like asking who's your favorite super model, just depends on my mood.

I love Walther, Colt, SW, High Standard, Kimber and many others. So like supermodels, I'll be happy to tey any of them.....🤣��

CZ is now ahead of Remington in my miniature arsenal.

My choice is Winchester because it produced such an incredibly broad array of rimfires -- bolt, semi's, levers, pumps -- some of which enjoy an iconic status.

I voted CZ but I still love the older Remington's I still own. The CZ Grand Finales my wife and I own now is the reason I voted CZ over the Remington's. I have owned seven 541-S Remington's and never could see the reason for all hype that they were so great. They shot good but all the plastic on them was cheap looking in my book. The 541's were very easy to resell for more than I paid for them. My GF rifles overall shoot as well or better than the best 541-S I owned, feel better in my hand, and are built to a little higher standard than the Remington and the mag well is the only plastic on them.
The Ruger 10/22 and American models had to many issues.
My 39A Marlin's would be a contender for a favorite just as a plinker but not even in the league in accuracy up against my bolt rifles and that was judging from owning 26 39A's at one time. Maybe occasionally get one that will hang in there with a bolt rifles accuracy but not the normal for me. My Henry Frontier 22 LR is better in accuracy than the Marlin's.
With only being able to vote for one that makes it hard for some of us that have multiple brands in our safes to pick from. Glad I am not limited to one make.

Says I cannot vote because I already voted but I do not remember.....

I would have voted for a Pardini....

These are awesome....a perennial winner on the bullseye line and in the Olympics.

Simply incredible recoil reduction system, incredibly accurate, reliable as a rock, awesome support although you will not need it.

I am sure that I have over 100,000 rounds through mine with out any servicing other then normal cleaning. No alibi's other then ammo malfunctions, and quite simply a work of art.

Yeah they are expensive and the used prices reflect the value of these pistols. I have a number of high quality rimfire rifles and pistols, and the Pardini really has no competition.

Regards,
Crankster
