    Probably an outlier here but the Thompson “Tommy gun” easily gets the number 2 spot for me.

    Now if I were to actually have to use it for that purpose, it probably wouldn’t be In the top ten. But for my uses then yeah easy #2 spot.

    I’ve got the AR either in the 15 or 10 size with a sizable lead in first place.Probably the SCAR-17 behind that. The M1A/M14 in a close third.

    Out of what I have, the SKS would be my 3rd place choice. However, I'd love a VZ58.

    I'd have to go either of my 3 Sks as well, but some more time with my French Mas 49 it might be different.

    HK-91. I know it better that the FN which, IMO, has superior ergonomics.

    Actually, this is two distinct questions (putting aside the terminology):

    "Battle rifle" -- FAL
    "Assault rifle" -- Daewoo K2

    I like a 14 shot .357 lever gun or maybe an SKS. Maybe an AUG? I have never shot an AUG but I always thought they were cool.

    After an AR15, would be either my AR10 or AR9.

    Although I guess the AR9 is technically a PCC/PDW not a Assault or Battle Rifle.

    Or if you mean other than the AR/AK series in whole, I really liked my buddies HK94.

    M39 Finnish Mosin Nagant - powerful cartridge, never fail action, a stock that could club a hippo to death.

    When my AR runs dry I’ll grab my 1860 Henry. I love lever actions.

    Rossi 92 lever action. Can be stowed anywhere, behind a truck seat, boat, scabardded on an ATV. Not the fastest action to use but probably the fastest to get into use. It can be drawn almost like a sword from anywhere its stored, doesnt catch on anything or get hooked up. Can reload during firing sequences, can handle subsonics or full house and both are two legged deadly. Its very easy to teach, I find showing a family member or someone new to guns how to shoot and they learn basics of shooting a lever action faster than they do a semi-auto.
