    I personally would buy an SVT-40 if I had that kinda money right now.
    For a $600 or so gun, the ammiuntion is cheap, at just .10 a round for 7.62X54R

    For some reason I really like the looks of that rifle.

    For me its the heat shield, detatchable magazine, semi capability, and cheap 54r that give me a hardon
    Yet the stock, receiver cover, bolt together kinda remind me of the sks

    If I had some REAL dough, Id drop a few grand on model 1941 Johnson. Couldve been the semi auto rifle of choice in WW2 if the garand hadnt been designed. Some of its major flaws were the amount of parts in it and cost to manuf.

    Just a little... only like 2X the amount you have saved now.

    For $1100 I'd probably look at a new PTR-91 and some ammo...
    or a heavy barrel Savage bolt gun in .308 and some decent glass.

    didn't you justget out of the AR game to buy something else, or didn't have cash or something like that? don't you still have your riced out 10/22?

    btw get a target rifle... you go through ammo slower

    dont buy a .308 unless you want to pay a ton to shoot it. .308 surplus pretty much disappeared.
