Gotta go with the Garand. A war winner. One of the first, if not the first, self loading rifles to see wide spread combat use.

war winner? are you serious? the garand was OK. but maybe you need to reconsider "war winner"
The cutting off of german supply lines, our aircraft, and of course the bombs to Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the as you would say "war winner"
and yes the AK is number ONE
Sr-10 (stoner was awesome)
round out the top 5..
the only thing "special" about the Garand was the caliber. --proof ------->, how many still use the m1? today???
Do you see any AK-47's used these days?? cricket symphony?

I disagree with the AK's status. While it certainly is the most widely used rifle and has a legendary reputation for its ruggedness, its not really a precision weapon by any stretch of the imagination and is very heavy. I think the trophy goes to the FN FAL.
