That's a nice collection of rifles. The Girand may be one of the greatest rifles ever made and that Mauser wouldn't be far behind (as far as bolt-actions).
You will love that P226 if you get it. My buddy has one and everytime we go shooting he has to pry it from my hands. It is one of the sweetest pistols I've handled.
Since you have the FN-FAL and you're looking for a .223, I recommend getting the FN-FNC. After several thousand rounds through one I had, I will definitely own another. With just the iron-sights, I can plink all day at a 100yd range. A really fun rifle to shoot.
As for my small collection, this is what I have ( I don't have actual photos for personal reasons).
Springfield XD .45 ACP
My pride and joy (this is actually me and my rifle at the range): Remington Model 700 BDL in .308 caliber with Leupold 9x50 Vari-X IIc scope.
Have plans to add a Blackhawk Axion sniper stock and bull barrel at some point. I have it zero'd at 300 yds which puts it 2" low at 500 yds.
My collector piece that I don't shoot anymore. Handed down from my dad. Browning Belgium .22LR
Remington 870 Express 12 ga.
Winchester Model 120 Ranger 20 ga.
I also have an old Mossberg 12ga and a few other .22LR rifles but can't find pics.
