My Eddystone US Model of 1917. I have had it for about 30 years and has never failed me.

My last group with it was 3.75 inches at 300 yards.



Now my dad has a 1903 Springfield that I just developed a load for that shoots like a dream! Here is the first 3 shots at 100 yards during load development.

Now the 100 yard group after load development.

But it was sold new as it is to the public in 1942 so I don't think that one counts, but if it does that is the one I like best. Love that Lyman peep sight.

Just bought my first Mauser (Yugo 48A) at the show two weeks ago. Thought that the bolt was messed up-but must feed smoothly from the magazine.
This is as fun as my LE #4 and maybe both #5s .
Have almost forgotten about the Mini 30 and SKS (I could never have imagined this possibility..), but have heaps of x39 ammo.

Mostly shoot small objects by the river (max. 120 feet or so), now and then at the range, and don't compare accuracy; all have only iron sights.

Mine would have to be a Mosin nagant seeing how its the only mis surplus bolt gun i have ever owned. Cheap ammo. And fun to shoot.

my favorite bolt action milsurp is my m91-30 or the m44 that i have shot, but those are also pretty much the only milsurp bolt guns i have fired so my opinion is limited and a bit biased.

i have also shot a sporterized eddystone too, i liked it pretty well but i am not sure if that counts as milsurp anymore...

I cannot have one favorite mil-surp bolt action. They are all too much fun each in their own way!

1938 K98k (Kicks like a damn horse!)
1944 .303 Enfield No 4 Mk 1 (sweet shoot after I polished the trigger and
sear)
1942 Mosin Nagant - fun shoot and cheap ammo!
1943 Springfield 1903-A3, always a favorite and one day to be joined by a 1903-A1 and an Eddystone Model of 1917.
Late 30-early 40's Jap Arisaka 6.5 x 50 T-38 (not yet shot)

But, if I had to reduce my milsurp arsenal to one rifle, it would be the 1941 Garand.
