I have a Match grade M-1 in .308. After going through the expense and hassle, if I had it to do over again, I think I'd just buy one of the "ready made" fully restored Rifles.

Of course I bought mine as a shooter,so it lost collector value when I upgrraded it.

But the M-1, whether collector or shooter is worth every penny IMHO.

there are now a couple of lever actions that i would like to add to my collection. a Model 94 in 32 W.S. and either a lever action in 357 Mag. or 44 Mag. to go with the revolvers.

i need to add another pistol in 40 S&W back into the mix as well.

going to keep my eyes open for any old bolt action shotguns too. preferably some old Mossbergs in various gauges.

plus, a 22 rimfire in a bolt action.

and last and certainly not least, definately need another 1911, preferably one in 38 Super.

Most likely, a CZ 75B SA. But, I also like rim fires, maybe another one in 22 MAG. Also been itching to build an AR. Problem is, I already have a nice one NIB, and can't quite justify the expense of another.

Thus the reason for the frowny face... Its gonna cost so much....

The two things I like the most in life are Automobiles and old military guns, and this just happens to be my favorite military rifle made by by favorite auto company...

Here's the list of hopes and dreams An M1 Garand (by far on the top of my list), a Arisaka Type 99 w/ mum, a M44 Mosin, a Swiss K31, and an CZ82. Those are my main guns. If I ever get them, or at least the Garand, I'll probably try to find some of the less common rifles, like a Steyr M95, a SA marked Carcano, or a Martini-Henry.
