When we talk about battle proven(not just used in battle) hard hitting and accurate rifles, the M1 Garand comes to mind. Oh and it makes a great club – Matt76

Yep. Not many rifles come to mind that I would carry if I were heading into a scrape that are better than the Garand.

Ever hear of the BM-59? After WWII, we armed our “friends” the Italians with them. The Italians actually improved the Garand, cutting away the bottom of the receiver for a detachable box magazine. They were nice enough to leave them in ’06… today, a BM-59, the genuine article, costs thousands of dollars… it might just be the perfect incarnation of the Garand…

Now I don’t care who you are, but this here is some kinda sexy… :)
