Tell ya what, if there’s a war like in the movie “red dawn”, I’ll give you my old mauser with bayonet, and you can go capture some machineguns with it. I’ll cover you from a distance with my bushmaster.
If the Mauser is properly zeroed, in good working order and I’m 600 meters away, no problem. I’m no Carlos Hathcock, but I should be good for that.
My old man made it through two tours in VN and did some amazing things with a bolt rifle there. I’m not as good as he is, but I’ll do. And he was easily able to perform the feat you have just described.
I’ll cover all ya’ll from a mile or two out. ;-)
When in doubt, reach out and touch someone...

For an operation such as you describe I would prefer a .22 or maybe a .22 Mag. Much easier to silence than your old mauser.
