What particular gun?

Collectable, good shooter or "I just want one".
If you found a deal on ONE PARTICULAR GUN that was basically trashed visually (say 50% or less on finish but mechanically sound)
and couldn't turn it down, what gun would you have to have?
Example, Greg can't walk away from a Victory model even when re-blued and of no value other than function.
Me? I'd give runaway's reft rut for samD's Browning 16 ga.
No other gun or guage or caliber gets to me like the "sweet 16".

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

For me, it would probably be a M1 Garand.

and before I head to Gunslot in the sky. I will have one and shoot one. I will probably need good brakes on my wheelchair, so the recoil doesn't distance my target.
Do they come full auto in either 30-06 and or .308?
.308 full auto would be awesome.
