Where are the most C&R firearms

I used to always check AIM and Ohio Southern Gun but they are pretty weak for C&R now. Where do you shop?

Honestly, there isn't a whole lot left out there.
And since we have reached the stage where all the military stuff from here on out will be NFA stuff, there is not much of a prospect of a lot becoming available.
I think the golden age of C&R has peaked.
Repeal the 17th Amendment, let’s put America back to the Republic the founding fathers intended!

Shop around.

Back when I started I just caught the trailing edge of that "Golden Age". Got SMLE's for $50, then a few leftovers in fair shape for $25 each. And over a hundred Turkish 1893's (antiques) for 3 or 4 for $100. Selling and trading them off paid for all of my current collection.
Back then the old timers were whining about not having barrels of $15 lee enfields and mausers, that the "golden age" was over.
I swear by Jupiter Optimus Maximus .... in the army of the consul Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus and for 10 miles around it I will not steal anything worth more than a sestertius in any one day.
