Favorite Consumer Available Battle Rifle
 
What is your favorite consumer affordable/available battle rifle for SHTF purposes and general shooting?

I love them all: Swiss K31; M1 Garand; 1903 Springfield; M1 Carbine

Probably the FAL.

Gee...Do you have an easier question?:)

The ar-15 if a long term shtf the police and military will be using this battle rifle so you have ammunition and parts at your disposal short term I would have to say a good little shotgun would do nicely my Benelli M4 should do the trick

M1A/M14, G3, FN FAL I loved my SAW when I was in the army though.

depending on what kind of shtf...i would stick with something that i knew would not be a problem...ammo/reliability/effectiveness.

for general shooting, something in .22LR, .223, .308, 7.62x39mm, and 12ga. is always a good time.

and for a shtf scenario, something in one of those or a combination of a couple of them might just cover most of your bases.

in a handgun, i would try to stick with .22LR, 9mm, or .45acp, as these would most likely be the easiest to get ammunition for if the shtf for a while.

my .02 anyway :p

but my favorite battle rifle would be a toss between a FAL or an AR10.

Favorite Battle Rifle
 
If you are defining a Battle Rifle as a FULL power semi-auto rifle (minimum caliber .308/7.62 X 51), then I would say the HK-91 w/the CETME a close 2nd. No gas system to foul or need adjustment, accurate, reliable and easy to maintain. I have 2 of these.

If you are going to allow 5.56mm into the fray, I would say the AR-15 platform. Available parts, magazines and ammo. I have 2 of these.

I also have 2 AK's so I can cover all my bases. I rely on the HK for the primary shoulder weapon. You cannot beat the 7.62 X 51 for penetration and "stopping power".

Fav battle rifle
 
For general purpose,my go to 1st grab for rifle is m14/m1a. I would love to own the m40 I used while deployed,but for even longer range,a .416 barrett would be the ultimate.
