I have one of all of those except the MAS 36. What does that shoot by the way? 7.5x54 is what popped into my head.

Enfields are my favorite, I could see me getting at least one of each type.

Yes, the MAS shoots 7.5x54. It is a rather low pressure round and IIRC, is about 40,000 cip. It uses standard .308 bullets. My other French rifle is a 49/56, which is one of the most fun autoloaders I own.

I have a few Enfields. I just recently obtained an Ishapore 2A, but I find the No. 4s in 303 the best balanced of the lot.

Yeah I was thinking about picking up an Ishy sometime in the near future. The great thing about the old milsurps is they are cheap so you can keep on buying.

Well they all can get expensive if you are going for nothing more then collectors value. All matching numbers mint condition C&R rifles usually go for a lot.

Here is a Steyr-Mannlicher in 8x56R. It was obtained from an importer/distributor. This light, handy rifle is one of my favorites!
