I've got a chance to buy a Swiss K-31 carbine. Looking for opinions on this weapon.
Very fine rifles and accurate. At least mine makes me look like I'm a marksman.
All joking aside this is a rifle I am glad I bought.
What Nighthawk said... And with the readilly available surplus ammo (GP 11), you are ready for military match. These things shoot good. I love mine.
I own two of them, Trench, and a more accurate military rifle has never been built. They function like a, well, Swiss watch.
If you find a good one, jump on it. The nice one are gone. I'm booting myself for not getting one. Pistol is dead on in this case.
Buy it .
very fine shooters. the 7.5X55 cartridge is a fine deer killer and the rifle is very accurate and easy to use...
Depending on price and condition I would suggest go for it. They are great.
I just purchased a swiss K 31, beretta coranco 6.5mm and, Itallian 6.5mm. I need some magazines for all three. I had to buy all three to get the K31. The Beretta and Italian are stamped 1943 there are no markings on the K31 except a serial number.
Off the rack accuracy the M96 Swede is the best, Swiss K31 a very very close secondIMHO
i recently got this rifle and i know its swiss but i am not sure what model or make well what it is in general does anyone know what this rifle is could someone email me with info on it at firstname.lastname@example.org
Looks to me like a "Sporterized" Swiss 1911. Should be a good shooter, and check under the buttplate; sometimes the original soldier's name is still there. Not much collector's value since it was cut down.
thanks is it still the same caliber as a k31 and does it take the same mags
It's most likely in the same caliber. Some of the k-31's were rebarrelled, or rechambered to .308, I never heard of a 1911 being recalibered. K-31. mags may fit. The original mag should be serialed to the gun. Do you have a source of K-31 mags?
no i do not have a surce for mags
