Swiss K-31
 
Anyone have one? I have one date to 1937. Shot some hand loads recently amazingly accurate for a 82 year old rifle, I was able to hold 1.5" at 100 yds with my tired old eyes. I just ordered a scope base that mounts into the rear sight. It should make this thing a moa rifle. Anyone else play around with one?

Ray did you sell a k31 10-15 years ago on GBO or 24HRC? Seems like I bought mine from your back then.

No, I am 24HCF and remember some of your posts, but no, wasn't me that sold you the rifle.


I did however have this one up for sale about 3 yrs ago. Maybe what's your remembering?


I do plan on putting it on GB soon w/o the scope.

I have one, haven't shot it yet, quite the piece, i've seen the comment it would $600+ to make one today, seems everything the Swiss made was really great quality.

Yeah Swiss did a real good job on the trigger in mine!
Kinda like the watches they make.
2 stage military, but real clean and crisp.


GS, You set up to reload for your K31?

Just getting a few new rounds to build up brass, will be watching for dies at the gun shows.
PPU brass from Serbia is what I can find locally, have you seen any boxer primed military brass?

I bought one a few years ago. A fine shooter as you have said. Love that straight pull bolt.
