I'm going down past AIM Surplus tomorrow morning. Say I had $500 to spend... what would you buy?


Also, what would you buy if you were in my shoes:
- I need at least one M91/30 to help burn up my 800rds of 7.62x54R. Interested in a really good shooter, would prefer WWII vintage.
- I already have one M44, but it groups about 1 foot at 50 yards... the crown and rifling are toast.
- I already have one K31, and I don't shoot it because it costs too much for ammo.
- I don't yet own a Mauser... but then again, I don't have any 8mm ammo yet either.

Here's what I'd get:

Laminated stock 91/30 ($109)
Regular stock 91/30 ($70)
Savage US Property marked Savage Enfield No.4 Mk1 Rifle ($179)

Battle pack of the Guatemalan .223, Erik from Aim wrote that they are inspecting the battle paks for corrosion, and it is good cheap surplus. ($65 ea)

I'd probably also get a Stag AR stripped lower at the same time, since that is the "hard part" in the AR building process, $99

Guess that ended up being ~$522 + tax.

... $500 will get you a ways at Aim!

I should have noted, I can't get another Enfield. I have one, and it's enough. I can't hit anything with it, and I don't know why.

ETA: I'm 20, so I can't get any handguns.

Well, I sure am glad I checked back this morning. I was thinking about the Mauser... but I still haven't made up my mind. As for 7.62x54R, I haven't burned up even half of what I already have. When I found out how shitty my M44 is, I stopped shooting it.

Right now I'm thinking:
1 battle pack of .223
Russian M91/30
Laminated stock M91/30
and either a Yugo Mauser or another M44 (preferably one with rifling)
