I got my K31 about 15 years ago when they were on sale for $99. Grafs always listed PPU brass for them but it took a long while for it to get back in stock. I started with a bag of 100 and got another 100 a few years down the road.


I only shoot cast bullets from mine. I don't want to take a beating from that steel butt plate so I keep the recoil rather mild...



Mine was made in the late 1940s as I recall. The tag under the butt plate said it was issued in the French speaking part of Switzerland to a construction engineer...

Update on my k31. Installed BadAce scope mount and an old Leupold VARIXIII 3.5-10. End results was several, 100yard 5 shot groups in one ragged hole. Not bad for a 82 year old rifle. When it cools off I will try 200 -300 yards.

I'm, really liking this old rifle. It is fuggly but it shoots. My try some hunting loads, for doe culling this fall.
