Well, you could get a religous curio / relic, like an old church pew or something. [:D] Seriously, my first choice would ALWAYS be an M1. Does that qualify as C&R??? Give us your choices. Then we'll tell you what to get, and you MUST obey us. [:D]

I'd say M1 Garand too, except there arent any. At least no REAL ones. Best deal for a M1 Garand is the CMP. The genuine M1 Garands left in SGN are all at "collector" prices. I always gor for the WW2 vintage first personally. See if you can still hound up a REAL GERMAN K98 Mauser. They were good deals last year. This year there seems to be some collectible P38s on the market. Just make sure you are getting a WW2 production one and not a postwar P1. Most C&Rs try and get the issue rifle from every principle country involved in WW2 to for a collection of mostly bolt actions.

already have the garand. so far the collection has been us military long arms(got 4, need '03, trapdoor, m14/m1a). a good intersecting line would be ww2 longarms(mauser,nagant,carcano,smle,arisaka), or german auto pistols (c96,p08,p38) maybe? 1911 clones?

Ok, how do I tell if it's a REAL GERMAN K98 Mauser? Dad brought two home... I think ... The one I got has BNZ stamped on it, and 44 below it.

Lurker - I'd go for the full complement of US martial arms - M1, M1 Carbine, 1911, 03 Springfield, trapdoor, etc. Then go after some Brit enfields. Lots of variants. then the Mausers. Jap jobs would be last.

My Mosin-Nagant 91/30 should be here today! I think my next C&R will be the French Mas 49/56 with all the accessories. I know, it's French, but such a good deal for "like new"! And, its a semi-auto assult rifle! All though, I don't think I will be wasting 7.5X54 rounds quite like 5.56 rounds.

BNZ is Chech, made for the Germans. The 44 would be the date of production.

Second the Enfields suggestion. A No.4 is a sweet bolt gun.
