Currently the Beretta 92S Italian police trade ins are running ~$375.  So, yeah, a decent bargain.

Arguably the most accurate standard issue military bolt action rifle ever made.  The Enfields were equally treasured for their speed.  Of course, Sergeant York did quite well with a Springfield in his hands.

Even the M1 Garands from the CMP have been hit hard and are mostly sold out (https://thecmp.org/sales-and-service/m1-garand/).  They have already been a target by the politicians so will be immediately gone if the election goes antigun.
