    You shouldn't put the M1 in a poll... It always wins... always... I think it even beat the AR-15 in one of those "If you only had one rifle..." polls.

    Anyway, it's all surp in your list so of those, buy the one you can get the best deal on now and then hunt for the others over the weeks/months ahead.

    I voted "other" ----- a SA M1A is hard to beat.

    Heck, the M1, of course, BUT I voted 98k because you're going to build the Garand.
    I think in the next 2-3 years the supply of even beat up captured 98k's is going to dry up, pretty much for good.

    I am a pretty big fan of the 98k, the M1 is a great gun no doubt but the Mauser just has a great feel and LOTS of history. Some others you may want to consider is a Swiss K31, a Springfield 1903 (CMP has ones with Mann Accuracy Devices and chopped stocks), or an M1 Carbine (would have voted other for this one...but figured you wanted a MBR with a larger cartridge). :)
  10. Depends. What do you have so far, and what are you trying to accomplish?

    An AR-15 is all I have right now.

    Well then... get the Garand from CMP and find a nice M14 or M1A after that :cool:

    If you don't have one yet, get a K31 (for a reasonable price) while you still can. Only half a million were made, and in milsurp terms that's nothing.

    Get an M1 Garand, but don't try to build one.

    They are a lot more difficult build then an AR-15 LEGO set unless you have all the tools and guages needed.

    i am more of a semi auto guy, and it is a M1 so that is the route that i would pick.

    Of all the guns I have owned there is only one I would not trade for anything (well except maybe if someone offered me $10,000 then I would just buy another)

    My 1.1 million Springfield M1 Garand (built January 1943). Was a Danish return. Sports USGI, Italian, Danish, and Korean parts.
