    I'm considering purchasing a rifle in the somewhat near future and I wanted to see what all everyone had for sale or might be willing to let go of (i.e., might not already be FS on this site). I don't have a particular price range in mind as I just wanna weigh out my options and see what people have to offer. Thanks.

    Then again, I could always wait to possibly win one in the next couple of months from FNRA. :lol:

    Those mosins looked pretty neat. I've thought about old military rifles or maybe a newer rifle such as an AR or AK. probably not a shotgun... just for clarification even though i put rifle in the thread subject. I guess I should go to the next gun show so I can handle stuff in person, but I thought I'd get some ideas to start out with here.

    Doesnt get any better than a Mosin 91/30 or M44 carbine. Cool rifles, good quality if you get a pre-war or post-war, ammo is CHEAP (10-13 cents a round!) and the rifle is cheap, and they SPIT FIRE :twisted: :shock: :twisted: :shock: :twisted: :shock: :twisted: :shock: :twisted: :shock:

    Enfields and Mausers are up there too but ammo is not as friendly on the wallet

    course how can you beat an AK variant.... semi-auto means more boom boom and less hurty shoulder

    nice list mastino.

    for me, #1-5 are checked off. Well, #4 is actually a CZ 550 in 30-06. Close enough? :) And #6 is part of my list too. :D

    If you are set on a bull barreled varminter, check out the CZ550 Varmint, available with 3 different stocks, huge barrel and available in 308. The Gun Store in Tucker GA has em and they are a CZ dealer.

    I like Remmy 700's but the CZ single set trigger is ridiculously sweet! Plus I'm a huge fan of the full-length Mauser extractor and in general the Mauser bolt (which the CZ is designed following), not to mention the dovetail milled into the receiver means that scope rings are pretty damn solid to the weapon. Overall CZ rifles are great, customer service is great, and they are cheaper than Sako's and Weatherby's etc......

    I may be able to towards the end of July, but I have no idea what my schedule will look like then. If I remember, I'll let you know. Thanks for the offer, even if I don't take you up on it.

    I'm still keeping all options open now. However, I just bought an AK yesterday and I'm definitely going to wait until after the FNRA raffle before I make another big purchase. I'll keep that in mind, though. Thanks for the offer.
