AIM is selling K31ís now for about $99 and claim the finish is about 80% to 90%. FGS, Inc. is selling the same rifle for about $114 and says the finish is about 70%. FGS, Inc. said the finish on their ďExcellentĒ K31ís is about 90%. Does anyone know how accurate AIMís claim of 80% to 90% finish really is? Why would you pay $179.50 for a 90% FGS, Inc. rifle if AIMís $99 rifles are about the same finish? There may be a good reason to, but Iím just learning about K31ís and would like to get more info before I buy.

Since I believe the guy I talked to at FGS was the owner, my gut tells me that he was being conservative and not over estimating the quality, whereas the people I spoke with at AIM were order takers, but I could be wrong.

Mantis,

I've bought several milsurps from AIM. All have been as advertized or even under-rated in quality.

I'd buy from AIM again without hesitation...

My K31 from AIM (purchased about a year ago) was great. I was totally pleased with it.

Same hear on my K31 from AIM. The metal is in good shape and it is very accurate.
