    I don't want to spend a lot on it (> $300 ) I don't mind something simple and plain, and I don't plan on putting a scope on it. Regular sites are fine. I wouldn't shoot it but a few times a year, if that. I would like a round that's readily available though (.306, 30-06, etc.)

    Do people still shoot Enfields or are they pretty much just collector pieces? I found one local on GunBroker I could contact the guy about.

    How about a Mosin and 800 rounds of ammo?

    I sure love the k31....its a nice rifle and makes an enfield feel like junk to me. The round isn't readily available but its just a .308 bullet so once you have some brass and start reloading you're gold. Mail order prices for reloadable 7.5 swiss are about the same as .308 anyway.

    Details? Which one?

    I'd like something at least semi-accurate.

    I don't mind the wood look. The Mosin seems do-able. As accurate as anything else in that price range/size/shape/age I'd assume?

    Not bad at all for $100. Why the suggestion of a muzzle break and stock?
