MOSIN-NAGANT - is a Russian made bolt-action, internal magazine-fed, military rifle, developed by the Imperial Russian Army in 1882, and used by the armed forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other nations. It is one of the most mass produced military bolt action rifles in history with over 37 million units produced since its inception in 1891, and much like the AK-47 it has shown up in various conflicts around the world, despite its age and obsolescence.
MILITARY SURPLUS RIFLES - have long been popular firearms among the shooting public due to their relatively inexpensive purchase prices. The real issue is, the large majority of these firearms date as far back as World War I. They were designed for use on the battlefields of Europe and Africa and thus, feature excessively long barrels that are ill-suited for home defense. Since these rifles were designed to engage the enemy at long ranges, they are chambered for high-powered rifle cartridges that generate way too much muzzle velocity for home defense.
M1 GARAND - a semi-automatic rifle chambered for the .30-06 Springfield rifle cartridge. It was the first standard-issue semi-automatic rifle. The Garand officially replaced the bolt-action M1903 Springfield as the standard service rifle of the United States Armed Forces in 1936 and was subsequently replaced by the selective fire M14, starting in 1957. During World War II, the M1 gave U.S. forces a distinct advantage in firefights against their Axis enemies, as their standard-issue rifles were more effective than the Axis' slower-firing bolt-action rifles. The M1 continued to be used in large numbers until 1963 and to a lesser degree until 1976. Like its predecessor, the M1 originated from the Springfield Armory. Today, the M1 remains in use for drill purposes.
