Default Help me spend some money

I have a total budget of $2k to spend on either one pistol or one rifle/scope combo. The money represents a significant amount of time and work on my part and I want to get a gun that will represent that. I want to get something unique, but not something that's collector value will be ruined if I shoot it a lot. I want a gun that I can enjoy shooting. I am particular about all my guns, so it will be well taken care of. I just don't want to buy something to sit in a safe and never be fired.

I'm only interested in spending the money on a gun, something that I will always have and that will always be a reminder of the time and work I put in to get the gun. I'm not interested in suggestions like "Buy a Mosin and spend the rest on ammo." I'm looking for something fairly unique or not very commonly seen that will be fun to shoot. So let's see what everyone can come up with!

Infinity 1911 they are 100% custom to what you won't. I have seen them look like everything from a colt 1911 to something off of star track.

I've got a pretty well-rounded collection. Semi-auto pistols and revos and mostly bolt action rifles. Just built my first AR so I don't really want to get another AR.

Thought about a MSAR STG, but heard they went under and their guns were hit or miss.

Thought about a SCAR, but I think that's out of my price range.

Thought about a nice Les Baer Monolith Heavyweight, but don't know if I need another 1911.

Not really into the older stuff like lever guns, SA revos, or old muzzleloaders.
