You want a fun one to try and find? Look for an M39 Finnish Nagant. They shoot like a dream and are quite comfortable. It's quite amusing to find a 1944 rebarrel on a receiver made in the 1800s. I've always loved the old rifles, they have character, soul, and personality. Modern weapons are so mass produced that they tend to be more the same then more different, which isn't true for the older military rifles. How about an M91/30 Finnish capture with a blood stain on the stock? It makes you wonder.
Here's a toast to our wives and to the women we loved. <pause> May they never meet.
The M1 Garand rifle is the best battle implement ever devised by man.
