Polish Wifama wz.78
A bolt-action .22 LR training rifle, it has a unique set of front and rear sights. They are patterned after the AK sights to help new recruits get accustom to the irons. The sights are removable if no longer needed and a standard dovetail scope mount is part of the receiver.
Fed with a 5 round magazine that sits fairly flush with the stock. Has a heavy barrel, making it quite accurate for a little .22. No longer imported, whatever made it into the country is just about it. This is a much more practical rifle than it’s predecessor which was a single shot that mimicked the Mosin Nagant 91/30.
Taurus PT1911 AR
The “AR” designation, if I remember right, was for Accessory Rail, though I suppose an anti-gunner would think Assault Rifle. A budget friendly 1911, they usually cost around $500 to $650. For what it’s worth it is a good starting platform to for adding in higher end components.

M1888 Pieper Magazine Rifle,
Created by the Belgian gun designer Henri Pieper, the M1888 was a new bolt action rifle inspired by the new Lebel bolt action rifle from France. While it was a bolt action, it was an exposed hammer which was cocked by drawing the bolt back. It could also be cocked manually as well. Chambered for an 8mm cartridge, it had a five round rotary magazine in which the user only had to drop the cartridges in.
The timing of the M1888 was an excellent move by Pieper, in 1890 Austria, Belgium, and the United States each held trials for a new bolt action repeating rifle. Unfortunately for Pieper, no country would adopt his design. Only a few hundred prototypes were built.
