I would love to have the SCAR 17. Add an ACOG and tac-lite and I would be pretty happy.

I would love to have a Boys' Anti-Tank Rifle, but would squeal like a teenage girl if I was allowed to just fire a magazine or two from this severely under-appreciated (in my view) rifle.

there are so many i'd love to own but here are a few off the top of my head:

- Mauser M98
- Sako 75 Hunter
- Winchester Model 70 Super Grade
- Winchester 94AE 30-30
- Winchester 94 30-30 (pre-64)

there are a variety of rifles with different cartridges that i'd like to have just for the sake of variety like the .22WSM, .223, .243 & 30.06

In addition to rifles i'd like a semi-auto shotgun, pump shotgun & O/U shotgun.

Barrett 50 cal M-82. Can't afford it or the bullets though.

Dream Rifles

I would like to have an original Lee Speed chambered in .303 British with express sights and full length barrel rib.

If I can't have the Lee-Speed, I might settle for a Winchester Model 1895 Carbine chambered in either .30-06, .30-40, or .303 British; no particular order.

suprised no one mention a Walther W2000 bullpup sniper rifle, thats my pick, be sides there is only about dozen or so ever made, and cost more than a new car.

I never knew I wanted one until I saw capybara's picture

in all seriousness though I am kindof torn between a 1918 BAR or a MP44.

Not really a matter of money, just Remington doesn't offer it.

Model 700 - synthetic varmint stock - heavy barrel - threaded for suppressor - in 6.8mm Remington SPC. They do it all except the caliber !!

1) socom 16 - Just a beautiful rifle that I've always wanted.

2) Ruger GP100 - Tank of revolver would give my 686 a much needed rest.

3) Savage 16\116 in 260 rem. - Those .264 bullets are intriguing.

4) Mini 14 - a poor mans M14, probably the closest I'll ever get to owning a socom16.

5) 1895 Winchester - 405 winchester is another interesting round in a magazine fed lever gun. What's not to like?

I could go on all day

A nice .223 bolt action that puts all the bullets into one hole at 100 yards.
I have one, a Tikka 595, but it took pillar-bedding and careful reload tuning to get there. Now it's boring to shoot at the range because it routinely gets 1/4" groups or better in decent conditions. Ho-hum.

A 23 mm cannon, but just one barrel would be ok if somebody owns enough land here to handle ricochets.

Realistically, just a very nice Eddystone or pre- 8***** series Springfield (aperture sight) for only $100.

When I was a kid, I used to see all the neat ads from Weatherby.

I have only handled one and never shot one. The one I saw was just absolutely beautiful. The workmanship just outstanding.

The thing that really was a turnoff for me was caliber selection. At the time, everything was a XXX Weatherby. You were sort of sucked in to buying Weatherby ammo for Weatherby rifles.

I love the new, high-end FN Winchester Model 70s, but couldn't bring myself to take one into the woods. The stocks I've seen in gun stores are beautiful!!!

The Lahti has a muzzle cap retained by a small lanyrad so it doesn't get lost
