    Only US rifle I own that might have seen action is this well-used and rebuilt M1C. Looks awful but functions OK and the 4/44 barrel date conjures up images of this rifle going ashore at Omaha Beach.

    Hello friends and neighbors // Some fine examples folks, I like the used look best. I have both rough and CMP cleaned up rifles but only inventory photos.

    U.S. 1884 Springfield Trapdoor 45/70 - Has an 1893 Cartouche so it could possibly have been used in the overthrow of Hawaii or the Spanish American War timeline wise.
    WRKspringfieldtrapdoor1884cal4570.jpg

    Cut down and sporterised now but I still love it.
    Got it for $250 OTD June 2010 and fixed it with a new main spring from Dixie Gun Parts $13.00 and about 45min..
    Still fairly accurate at 50yards.
    -----------------
    Dec. 1943 Underwood, M1 Carbine, , 30cal - It has a 1944 stock cartouche.
    WRKM1carbineUnderwood1943.jpg

    One of my favorites to shoot and it is the best quick sighting rifle I have. Even though it is in nice shape I keep it set up for HD (SJSP). $800.00 OTD (with the extra mags) March 2010
    ------------------
    1944 Springfield, M1 Garand, ,.30-06
    WRKM1GarandSpringfield1944.jpg

    My Gun Smith is checking a few things before I shoot this one, the barrel shows a lot of use but we will see how it shoots soon.

    Price is hard to say, $1000.00 for the M1 Garand, 1000 rounds of .30-06 and a barely used Bull Pup AK ,Dec. 2010.
    Traded the AK to the local Gun Shop for $500 off on a Colt Python, the ammo is worth about $500, so I call the M1 Garand my "free" rifle (at least until I shoot the 1000 rounds of .30-06).

    Savage 116 fsak in .30-06, Tasco 3x9x40. Good old serviceable elk/deer/antelope rifle put to use in a long range match. I struggled with getting hits but managed two of my best long range shots ever (550 yards I think) had a fun day.

    Not my rifle, this SKS belongs to my dad. It was given to him by his FIL a few years ago.

    This particular SKS was given to my grandfather by the South Vietnamese government around '73, IIRC. They presented it to him for work he did with DARPA, helping to integrate advanced US Technology into the South Vietnamese army (they also knighted him). It was captured by a South Vietnamese soldier off an NVA regular in the late 60s. The stock is beat up, and it has plenty of nicks and scratches, but it is in very solid shape and appears to have been fired very little (if any). I'm sure there is lots of interesting history to those nicks and dings.

    61Chalk, that's a pretty interesting story. I enjoy talking to veterans about their experiences. I spoke to one not too long ago that fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He earned the Bronze Star there. After telling me all about it he took me out to his truck to show me his Bronze Star.

    The BAR is a chunk of iron. They weigh about 20 pounds. Most people would avoid them just due to the weight, but the distinct sound would also make you a target.

    As others have mentioned, the middle rifle is a 1941 Johnson. They are very unique and pretty uncommon. Many would consider me nuts for taking it out and shooting it. I don't think it's possible to fully enjoy them if you don't shoot them.
