I know the comparison might seem strange ( due to to price difference), but I was wondering what would make a more accurate and more reliable rifle of the two? I'm only taking into consideration accuracy and rugged reliability/dependability. I know many say Butch's rifles are the most accurate and toughest doubles around, which has impressed me. There's also just something about the drop lock that captures the romance of the good ol' days though. I guess I've decided that someday I hope to have one of each regardless, but I was just curious what some of you think (for fun).Thanks so much and it's good to be here on the forum.
