How about a 94 swede carbine.......in NE Oklahoma????
From the point of view of someone buying a mil-surp today, I am not sure I agree 100% with this statement, though I would obviously be mentally challenged if I said that the No. 4 was anything but a marvelous rifle.
For the money, I don't think you can beat a Swedish Mauser. All respect to the Enfield, but the action on those Swedes are fantastic (though admittedly not as fast as an Enfield) and I think both the practical accuracy and accuracy potential of the Swede is a little better. The Swede and the Enfield both are easy to get brass for and reload, in addition to a good selection of factory ammo.
But then, I have shooting examples of most all the commonly owned boltie battle rifles: an A3-03, a K31, the M/N, an Enfield and two Swedish Mausers. I don't flatly dislike any of them. In fact, I would rather shoot any one of these rifles as opposed to a moden bolt action. I love the 03, I really like the Enfield, the Mosin is a marvel of simplicity and ruggedness, the K31 is a blast to shoot, and the Swede is accurate and pleasant. If the OP has $1500 to spend, he could probably pick up two or three of the above rifles in good, shootable shape!
Working on getting one of these myself from RGuns (rguns.net). The Tula's are $100.00 more. These are on their web site under used guns and then on page 3. Check it/them out.
they are out of Tulas... have been for a few months
Thank you AmishFury, I guess I will be getting an Ivhevsk.
And I have both No1 MkIII's and No4 Mk1 (*)'s and love them both.
