1903A4 (This was a sniper rifle issued in 1943 that saw service up until the Vietnam War. Real examples are extremely costly but the Gibbs Rifle Company produced a replica version a couple years ago for about $1,000. If you’ve watched Saving Private Ryan, this rifle is carried by Jackson, the sniper, albeit with different scopes. This example is a late war sniper due to the M84 scope mounted which was also used on the Garand sniper rifles.)

Norinco M14
The Chinese produced and sold copies of the M14 to the civilian market. You can usually tell it’s a Chinese rifle if you see a solid flash hider with no slots cut. Note that the stock has the cut-out for the selector switch. This one has a 5 round magazine being fed by 5 round stripper clips.
