+ Swiss K-31
+ Finnish M-39
+ British Enfield Mk. 1
+ K98

And thats the order that I am thinking, but if someone disagrees with it I'd love to hear why and also get some helpful advice.

Thanks

good order except the K-31 ammo is .50 cents a round as well as .303 prvi partisan. The M39 and K98 will be better deals considering how cheap and readily available the ammunition is.

Yeah the deciding factor is ammo. If ammo cost is no object, I vote k31. I love mine. Otherwise the k98.

that is a fine list you've made up, i voted for an m39

The K-31 would be my vote. Hard to find any surplus rifle as accurate and fun to shoot. Ammo is only costing me .36 per round from MidwayUSA

I'd get a K98. That's one i still really really need

This is the C&R section, The "collection" of curios and relics

Money should never be an issue

By far the K31 is one of the FINEST rifles EVER made.

Thats what i voted for

Brass and bullets are easily had to reload the K31. I am very impressed with mine. For less than $100 you will have an exceptional rifle. The MKI is a nice rifle and reloading components are readily available for .303. I hear the Finns are very nice too.

I voted for the M39. I think the K31 is the nicest milsurp rifle out there, but the ammo is expensive and the best thing you can do to improve your shooting is to shoot. A lot. And 7.62x54R is cheaper than any centerfire rifle round I know of. Sportman's Guide has 880 rounds of Polish light ball for like $65. You just can't beat it, it's good, clean, accurate ammo.
