    I just bought a mosin nagant on saturday and I must say, it's quite fun to shoot. Ammo is a bit more than ammo for my SKS, but I waste a lot less screwing around haha.

    My favorite though was the M1 Garand that a guy at the range let me shoot when I was sighting in my deer rifle.

    My Mosin 91 59 carbine and Tokarev pistol Type 54. They are blast, the concussion of the Mosin will let the AR guys know you are nothing to be lookdown with . Its cheap ugly rifle but it speaks with authority. AMmo is cheap and i wouldnt worry if it gets scratched.
    The Tokarev on the other hand can be fired rapidly . Groups are fistsized at 7 yds with cheap surplus.

    The Lee Enfield no. 4 mk. 1. I have owned three so far and my most expensive one was only $200. The ammo's not very cheap (usually around a dollar per round), and sometimes its hard to find where I live, but I love them. There isn't much felt recoil and they are rediculously accurate for a seventy-something year-old rifle. Easy to clean and operate. Only real downside is the weight (almost 9lbs isn't fun after a few hours in the sun) and usual condition you find them in (extremely dirty and some of the screws for the furnature are almost always siezed up).

    For me...

    #1 is the Garand (January 1945 receiver and barrel). Love it.
    #2 is the Swiss K31. Most accurate of my milsurp.

    My K-31 is my favorite shooter because it is accurate . But I have not shot my M-39 yet

    I have two Mil Surp rifles one S/A M1 Garand (1955) and one Mossin Nagant 91/30 (1942). Garand wins hands down.

    I have a cabinet full of byf K98k's and another full of Mosins. Safe's full of Winchester Garands and Carbines, plus Arisaka's and MAS rifles... but my favorite? Has to be the Romanian 7.62 NATO PSL. Just something neat about shooting a com-bloc rifle chambered in 308.

    Picked up a 1943 M1 GARAND, Have yet to fire it.
    But it was my favorite before I bought one.
    Like others, Fired one at a CMP open house back in the 80's
    You always remember the first one

    I never paid much attention to these until landing here in Afghaniland. I am working in a forensics lab and we process all catured materials. I have seen many variations of the enfields, nagants, and 98 mausers. I think I like the sniper enfield the best so far. I will have to add something to the collection when I get back home.

    I'd say my SKS's and my Mosins are my favorite to shoot. Cheap ammo and a loud bang everytime

    I want one of those. The lust for an SKS-M has replaced the lust I normally reserved for an M1A. I'd much rather have one of those than any AK including my Yugo,

    Nice rifle, Sir!
