I'd say the M1 Garand. They're just a blast to shoot. You truly are shooting a piece of history. I love the newer modern guns, but I'll always have a soft spot for the classics.
The M1 Carbines also rock. It really depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for a full power rifle that you can use at longer ranges you want get the M1 Garand. If you're looking for a nice handy lightweight rifle look at the M1 Carbine. They are both a bit pricy to shoot though.
I'm not a fan of the Nornico M1As. They have good forged receivers, but the rest isn't the best.
I own too many AR pattern rifles. Some say it's a problem, I say it's a solution
