I love the Garand, Lee Enfield, Mosin Nagant, the list goes on and on.

I suppose you need a .30-40 Krag...

Our first .30 main battle rifle. First bolt. First smokeless powder. Designed as a single shot repeater with a built-in magazine for urgent rapid fire. Butter-smooth action and a graceful beauty.

My first antique...

If you don't have a Mosin-Nagant, that is a very inexpensive addition to any collection. They are very functional, high powered centerfire rifles, with, still, affordable ammo readily available. The don't have any bells and whistles, not even a functional safety, and it is difficult to mount a modern scope on one, but they are affordable, fun and historic.

My favorite rifle is a Voere bolt action in .06, built on a large ring Mauser action. I can shoot the nuts off a gnat with that one, and select which one to take first. (I do lie a little sometimes, but it is a nice rifle)

I want an enfield, a garand, m1a, and a kraig. Those are top of my list, I enjoy my 1934 mosin, cheap big boom fun.

Like said above my sks is a hoot to shoot along with the EBR, but those are a plenty.

That is some good looking iron and wood! Does it work as good as it looks?

I traded a beat up .44mag for a Remington made 1903A3 that was already in a beautiful maple stock, so I had it drilled and tapped. Installed leupold base, added a Burris FFII 3x9 scope in leupold rings. Had to have the bolt handle shaved to clear the scope, which it barely does but it does. It was the first caliber I ever reloaded. Its a beautiful gun and a highly accurate one as well. Its a special gun to me and among all of my 20+ guns, its my favorite.
