    I guess I'm in! I've been keeping my eye out for one for a while now. Just won an auction on gunbroker for this one. It has a couple of little cracks in the stock but nothing too offensive. Other than that, it looks great! Nice wood, good bluing. Do my typical, CLP all the metal and tung oil the wood three or four times, shouldn'y be too bad. $118.

    I didn't get ripped off too badly, did I?

    I do not think so looks like you did great. I do not have one but I have heard that they are very accurate. Get you some dies and brass and you will have a sub MOA rifle.

    Actually, a guy over on milsurpshooter.net won the SC MSA with a K31 and surplus ammo this weekend. Those darn Swiss sure know how to build a rifle.

    sportsman's guide has the stripper clips, but waaaay too expensive.

    I see them at the gunshows for $1 each.

    If you're not wanting a scope for the K-31, I highly recommend the Mojo Tandem Aperture sight. I just put one on my K-31 and it's awesome. First time out after dialing the sight in, I laid a 6-shot group in a 1" ragged hole shooting GP-11 surplus.

    Ditto on the Mojo sights. Got 'em on my K31 and they're great.

    If you find the strippers for a buck each stock up on 'em. I've never seen them for less that $4.00 each (even at the gun show)

    I'm considering one myself. Southern Ohio Guns (SOG) has a pretty good deal on them right now at $110. They also have SKS's at $125. Hmmm...

    You didn't do too bad, but aim surplus has them for $89.00 with free shipping and F.G.S has them for $99.50.

    Some of the best info on the web is at www.swissrifles.com!
    Happy shooting!

    P.S. Here is part of a new web site: http://www.swissriflewebsite.com/

    Reading that site reminded me...

    K-31's are very cool, but now you need to get yourself a Schmidt-Rubin. ;)

    Considering the fact that before this last batch of rifles were imported these guns were selling for about $450 dollars a piece and people were still fighting over them. The guns will undoubtably rise again dramatically in value as soon as the current supply dries up.

    The only smarter thing you can do immedietly is buy another one at these dirt cheap prices. Very few other military rifles in the entire world had the workmanship and accuracy of these rare and historic weapons. Don't start worring about buying one 10, 20, or 30 dollars cheaper somewhere else. Just grab another one while you still can.

    Stumbled upon a very nice K-31 while hunting for a Finn in a local gun shop. After a little research from this site and others, I went back and plunked down the cash for her. Serial number is 6306xx and all matching. Just forward of the sling on the buttstock is a circled 7. On the tang is "SG." On the receiver near the barrel is a reversed "B" butted up against a "P" and what looks like a downward looking PacMan with "K+" inside. Removed the buttplate and found the card of Erwin Unterhnahrer along with his unit and city.

    The wood has dings but cleaned up beautifully. The bluing is dark and deep, only worn near the muzzle. The craftsmanship is incredible--hinged barrel bands(!), great wood to metal fit that rivals my Swede Mauser and has an incredible trigger. I don't have a C and R (yet!) so I didn't get a $90 shooter, but for $130 I am more than satisfied--and threw a few buck the way of a local business.
