Hello from Switzerland,

Before to buy my FA 83, I've read a lot of information about FA in this forum.
And it's like FA, no place for approximation, it's run like a Swiss watch!

And now, one 83 has got his new family and it's time for me to become a member
of this very specialized and attractive forum.

Best regards and Gun4All!!!

Welcome from beautiful upstate New York. I just picked up a nice K31 which turns out to be a great shooter, as least as great as my eyes are capable of! How difficult is it to get a set of target sights for it? They are difficult to find around here, and expensive when you do. Also, what scope mounts are used for them in Switzerland?

Hello,
Thanks you very much for your Welcome!

SHOOTALL: Yes, I'm also hunter but not with handgun, it's completely forbidden here in Switzerland!
Woodchuckhntr: A new Match target sight set is 460 Swiss Francs in a gunshop. I'll take a look for secondhand.

Best regards

Hello from the great state of Oklahoma, welcome aboard. you are with a great bunch of guys who love to hunt and talk about their guns and to help others when we have problems.
A side note in 1951 when I joined the air force there was a fellow in my outfit that was from your country, a great guy and always fun to be around. we yanks got a big kick of the way he used his fork and knife to eat with, never could master that art :) :). He had also served in the swiss army, any way welcome again.

Welcome aboard. It is a shame so many people are caught up in the misinformation that handguns are only for shooting people. ???Woodchuckhntr: the K31 originally used a side mount scope mount. One of the great things about that rifle is you can use 308 bullets in the 7.5X55 brass. ;D As good as it shoots with its iron sights, I never saw the need for a scope, droped silouetts out to 500 yards standing free hand with no problem other than the weight of the rifle. rawhidekid
