Well, guess I'll order a K31 next week. Might as well do the hand selects too for the troop tag and leather sling. Oh, and they have a nice cleaning kit to go with them. It's only money, right?
Oh, and what I was saying earlier about how I'm surprised that we get these here. Since Switzerland is one of the few countries in the world where gun ownership is legal, I figured that most Swiss rifles would be made available for Swiss citizens to own first. Like I was saying, I guess the demand for these isn't that great over there, so we get them.
Whatever the case is, it's cool with me.
Am I mistaken or is there a big increase in the ammo price for 7.5x55 compared to 7.62x54R ?
Maybe I was looking the wrong places.
Simpsons LTD is the largest importer of K31's. Tons and tons in stock. Tiny little import stamp under front barrel.
I have a few K31's and love them!!!!!

my import marks are large and horrible looking....all though the numbers are done neatly....i slapped cold blue all over it to hide it a bit.
Held one at collectors today in Stoneham. Little on the expensive side if I recall. I just applied for my C&R so I'll hold out till I can buy direct. Glad to hear they are good shooters though and that ammo is plentiful. I won't buy something unless I can throw lead down the pipe.I have never seen one at a LGS, only online. Anyone know who has some in stock?
Stock up on the ammo if you do not reload. I try to get at least 1k rounds with every new cal milsurp I buy.Held one at collectors today in Stoneham. Little on the expensive side if I recall.

Got to order one today. They must still be reeling from the ice and snow of last week. The M44's finally went out yesterday, ordered over a week ago. And the Swiss cleaning kit and bayo haven't been shipped yet. I did the hand select on the rifle, even though a couple of the times I used this option were disappointing. I wrote them a nice note in my order asking them for as perfect wood and bluing I could get, and that if the choice was between a sling and perfect wood and bluing, I'd prefer a great stock and bluing.
I'll let everyone know what happens. If they come through I'll probably get two more.
Ok, I'm thinking of buying one from AIM but there isn't any info on condition. Did I miss something?
