Are These The Most Accurate Military Surplus Rifles

What do you think about the choices made by Iraqveteran8888 in this video for the 5 most accurate military surplus rifles?

In a move that is sure to stir up some controversy, the guys on the Iraqveteran8888 YouTube channel just published a video with their choices for the 5 most accurate military surplus rifles of all-time.

Besides judging the accuracy of the rifle, the criteria they used for their decisions was that they had to be former military rifles that were somewhat commonly available, but not currently in use as the primary weapon for any military force in the world.

Check out the video to see what rifles they picked. It is a little long, but has some pretty good information and it is well worth your time to watch it.

To recap, their choices for the most accurate military surplus rifles are the Swedish m/96 Mauser (6.5x55mm), the 1891 Argentine Mauser (7.65x53mm), the Finnish M39 (7.62x54mmR), the Swiss K31 (7.5x55mm), and the Swedish Ag m/42  Ljungman (6.5x55mm).

Notably absent from the list are rifles like the M1 Garand, the 1903 Springfield, and all versions of the Lee-Enfield Rifle (though they they do share their reasons for leaving them out).

What do you think about their choices for the most accurate military surplus rifles? What changes would you make to their list?
