All of SVT-40's guns

Latigo's swiss rifles.

And I think skser still has a white glued laminate k 98, very cool.

I personally love the look of the french rifles, but I have not ever shot one, or even held one.

First you are chopping up historic vintage rifles and sticking them in cheap and nasty looking plastic "dildo" stocks that look like some kind of futuristic sex toy that gay space aliens stick up each other's butts.
Next thing you know, you think "Deliverance" is a love story.

1. Pre-WWI contract Mausers, mostly to S. America - pretty much all gorgeous design and craftsmanship.

2. Swedish Mausers.

3. Belgian 1889 Mauser variants.

4. M-1 Garand in a walnut stock.

5. Gewehr 1898.

6. Berthier 1907, 1907/15 long rifles.

7. M1903.

8. Krag Jorgensen.

9. Mannlicher-Schönauer service rifles.

10. Pre-WWII Czech Mausers.

I have never owned most of these rifles, but I do appreciate beautiful design and high craftsmanship in fit and finish. I do or have owned some rifles not listed here, because they were well-made or well-reworked (like my Finn M1939) and they shoot well, have a good history, but I don't consider among the most beautiful in the looks department. Such as a German and an Israeli K98 and an SMLE. I do own a #2 and a #4 from above.

My one and only Krag Jorgensen. I'm no Krag expert, but I've been told it's all original, except for the rear site and handguard, and that the stock is Italian walnut of which there were only 10,000 produced with this type of wood.

That Krag is sweet!! The stock cartouch is awesome!!! Many have been sanded or are so faint that you can barely see them!!!

Best looking IMHO is the Lee Enfield No.1 Mk 5. This still has the Bulldog like no nonsense business end and history of the No.1 Mk3, but has the rear sight on the receiver and thus has better lines. Definitely the best looking I own. I do like those FN 49 pics above too though.

These aren't military surplus, but they are made from wood and steel so I guess they are eligible.
