    1. Browning Citori

    This line-up is totally understandable. The Browning Citori has been one of the easiest-to-recommend over-unders since hitting the market. It combines quality and elegance with affordability and it comes in a lot of different variants which bump up its sales. You’re not going to see the great names in over-unders on any best-selling list because they carry a price in-line with their luxury status.

    It’s also clear that Ruger did right by bringing back the Red Label. The updates they made to the design are certainly boosting sales, too.

    Lever-action rifles

    5. Marlin 1894

    4. Marlin 1895

    3. Winchester 1894


    As seen in the original “True Grit.” Is it OK to say you liked the new one better?

    2. Marlin 336

    1. Winchester 94

    winchester 94

    As seen in “Thank You for Smoking.”

    These are all probably neck-and-neck with each other. It’s hard to imagine that any one of these classics is going to lead the pack by any significant margin when it comes to sales. That being said, the Winchester 94 probably comes in first more often than not.

    A new-manufacture Model 1894, the Model 94 is approachable and still carries the legacy of John Browning’s most famous rifle design.
