I posted this on Arfcom, but I know many people here don't visit there, and I wan't your opinions too.

Let's for a second assume none of us own any C&R firearms. You have nothing. You have been given a credit card with a meer $1,000 limit that you can only spend on C&R rifles. What would you get?

*Rules*
1. Must be C&R
2. Must be a firearm(s)
3. Maximum of 5 firearms
4. Must be commercially available now
5. Have fun!


Ok, for me I would probably end up getting:
K-31 with walnut stock
Persian Mauser
K-98
Enfield No4Mk1
Fin M39

I probably couldn't fit all five in, but I would sure as hell try. What about all of you?

The best M1 carbine I could find to meet budget.

Other than that,

Swiss K31
No. 1, Mk4 British .303
Browning HP for the mandatory pistol slot.

Arisaka Type 38 (w/ammo)
Persian Mauser (excellent condition only)
Swedish Ljungman AG42
more M1 Garands!


But I guess most of mine are not commercially available except for the Persian and M1's.

and what about pistols? I could use a USGI issue 1911 and a Russian TT-33
edit: what slowjonn said... add Inglis (Canadian) or Nazi issue FN / Browning HiPower

Well with both of those you're 100% overbudget.

If I could only have 5 or $1000.00 in guns here is how I would go. I collect/gathering rifles for survival, hunting, and target shooting so here is what I would get the following.

1) SKS x 2 260.00
2) CZ52 Pistol x 1 150.00
3) East German Makarov x 1 325.00
4) Finish M39 x 1 250.00
_____________________________
Total 985.00

If California didn't suck... I'd put the $1000 down on a SVD and then collect the next couple thousand from a couple months from now for the next guy who puts up a poll like this one ;) :)

My list-

German K-98 non capture rifle
US 1911
US 1903

you might get close to 1000 on that, maybe more like 1200-1500

An unissued Persian 98/29 or Hakim or Lunjman. Any cash left over from the one I purchased would go to 30-06 ammo.

Just for your info there are grades of aluminum (2024, 6061, 7075 ect and the T on the end only means that the material is Heat treated) that are considered aircraft and other materials like stainless steel 303,304,316,347 ect and titanium as well

for titanium check this link here you will see some aircraft that have used this material since the mid 50,s Titanium 6ALV4 for one

http://www.californiasciencecenter.org/Exhibits/AirAndSpace/AirAndAircraft/A12/A12.php

Here is the list but if you need one I'm not sure you'll know what five you want.
