Yeah, the Kimbers are selling like hotcakes, even more than the Garands, apparently.
It looks great as it is. I was surprised to get USGI wood, guess my notewriting skills are pretty good. I mean, why go for "Correct" when you can just enjoy it the way it is, a great rifle. My rifle has most of the parts matching, HRA bolt, barrel, trigger group(I think), etc. Which doesn't really matter to me, it's just cool that most of the rifle stayed that way since 1953.
A Heritage Rough Rider is a good start, cheap, single-action, .22. it eats all ammo, since it's a revolver, and it's a single action, which means it'll last forever. Other than that, take a look at Rugers, and S&W's. Do you have a FFL 03?
