Swiss K-31

Post by papabear » February 13th, 2013, 12:13 pm

This time of year I usually pull out my now one and only Swiss rifle, in times past I had my share of Swiss rifles, from the mod 1889, 1896/11 and the K-31 mod 1931 short rifle, being a dummy I sold off the all of them as I did my Japanese collection at the time so enlarge my main interest in US, British and Russian guns. The one I did manage to hang onto was one of my K-31's, a 1947 Karabiner SN 890XXX. At one time I also had quite a number or Swiss bayonets and scabbards and I did retain a mod 1889/18 bayonet with the stud in the blood fuller to prevent the bayonet from slipping out of the scabbard. This one I have shot quite a bit and IMHO it one of the more accurate rifles I have.

That's a beauty! I remember AIM was selling great condition K-31's years ago for around $150. Wish I would've sprung...oh well.
