M1 garand
Nagant
If you had to pick on or the other as your old school rifle which would you pick and why? The M1 has a lot of nostalgia for me but there are a lot of Mosin Nagant lovers out there.

And don't forget about the M1 Carbine.

Nice! Lucky dog! I've had a chance to shoot the rifle but never the carbine. They always make me think of Audie Murphy for some reason! LOL

when I was 16 I used it to take down a red fox that was killing our chickens 150 Yards at a run with a headshot. Very accurate rifle.

I have a auto ordnance M1 Carbine, they come in Walnut and function very well. The magazines stink (won't seat well), so I got some Mil Spec ones and the rifle is comfortable and hust sings when putting rounds down range. I have read reports that some other reproductions just don't function well ? But I personally don't know.

I would love to have a Garand, specifically a match grade!

I think there is something to be said about holding a M1 Garand. Yes the nostalgia it has pulls me towards this weapon. It has one heck of a service history behind it. On top of that, it is an accurate weapon with good stopping power which is something some of the modern day assault rifles are missing.
