Howdy folks, as I am new here I guess i should introduce myself by starting an argument. Everyone list your favorite military surplus rifle, pistol or other.

Ill start out with the Mosin-Nagant M91/30 with the M96 swede running a very close second

Welcome to the forum! To answer your question, ryo like very much the KA SR 25 medium range sniper rifle chamber for the 7.62mm x 51mm NATO standard round. Also like M203 short barrel for carbine grenade launcher and also surplus SOPMOD Block 1 kit.

Your new friend,

Mine is the good old M1 Garand. Got to respect those guys back then, they had to carry the heavy thing around all the time.

I had an M1 Garand that I traded along with a Taurus .357 snubbie even steven for a new Ruger Mini-14 ranch rifle. I was really dumb. My second pick would have to be a tie between my old SKS and my Enfield No 4 Mk2.

M1 Carbine

Light weight, rugged, put a decent bullet in there and you're good to go for short range.

they took out the missiles and made it into a cruise missile platform with some tubes left over to spit out SEALS. It was once the deadliest weapon on the planet and they turned it into what amounts to a stealth destroyer and a rowboat for SEALS. It's now the SSGN 726.

Just got my K-31 back from having a Cerakote finish applied. Beautiful job. Next is to finish my Richards stock. Yeah, I know it's no longer original but I have two others that I promise not to violate!

It's too late for me, save yourself.
