What 3 guns should I take next?

From this thread

I can't decide between the...

French MAS in original war configuration
Winchester 88 pre 64
Savage 24
Remington 700
Belgian SxS (the nicer one)
SKS

I already took the Remington model 12, the Garand, and the 1894...and I have the handguns already.

The Winchester for sure.

Garand for sure. I also like the MAS, I had a chance to buy one and didn't, still kicking myself.

My vote goes for the Winchester 88, the Savage 24 and the Remington 700.

depending on the condition of the SxS id snatch that up in a heartbeat.  Is the lockup tight? is the top lever right of center? are the barrels on face? is the forend tight? whats the condition of the solder on the ribs?

Heres some reading on Liege Shotguns.

In order id take:
1. Liege SXS (assuming its in good condition)
2. SKS
3. MAS
4. Win 88

Regarding the SxS...here is a thread I started at Shotgun world...those guys know their tube guns. http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=437064

Made by Belgian gun maker Joseph Cap around 1910-1924. A well known maker I guess but it is not a $3000 field gun.

Lockup is very nice and tight. Wood is 85% and metal is 90%.

Not sure about the other questions...the lever is about centered...forend is tight...barrels on face - sure? Solder on ribs looks normal I guess. Sorry I don't know what to look for there.
