    I'm looking for either an M1 Garand, Mosin Nagant, or Karibiner 98k. Something cheapish (under $500), and authentic, used in battle if possible. I don't own any relic weapons, but i'm hoping to start out. And something with matching ID#s. Thnx :D

    That sounds like a Russian Capture K.98k. Scorned by many collectors because they have been refinished, they definitely were used in battle and have a real history. And the price is usually right. Right now, M-N rifles are very reasonable, also. Other WWII rifles of note would be the Japanese Type 38 and Type 99, the Italian Carcanos, and the British SMLE and No. 4 rifles. And of course, the U.S. M1903 and M1903A3/A4 rifles are always high on a WWII collector's list.

    AIM has $69.95 Mosin Nagants. That is probably the cheapest WWII battle rifle out there.
