    Default Swiss K31 rifle

    Decided that in lieu of having my SG 550 confiscated, that I'd replace it with a rifle I'd coveted at the time but never seemed to come into. Aside from the stabby thing it's an all matching rifle. The ammunition is rocking horse poo in this country. There is a Swiss club in Auckland but it's very exclusive (read: broheim broheim). Nonetheless, according to Wiki the sequence in numbering indicates that this rifle's wood is made from walnut.

    Do many people have these rifles in the old country? What can you tell me about them?

    I have a K31 with peep sights, bought from a deceased estate
    Sadly I have not had the chance to shoot it at extended ranges as I am waiting on the license.

    I found some interesting info here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K31
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waffenfabrik_Bern
    https://guns.fandom.com/wiki/K31

    Mine has these sights on

    They are rubbish. Terrible shooters. Allow me to make you life easier by selling it to me. :)

    They are out there, I know the Swiss Army Rifle Club guys shoot them a lot and they do occasionally come up for sale

    Yup. There is a you tube channel, "bloke on the range", he did a 3" group (if I recall right) at 200 or 300 meters with sights images above. It was mighty impressive.

    No, you have enough pretty things. I need one though

    IV8888's long range videos on the K31 has really convinced me, though I've never actually seen one here in SA. I think I saw one in a Classic Arms catalog but never in the flesh.

    When I was in Dallas Cabellas was selling them for $300 each, they had about 300 out in the shop on racks.

    There’s a guy in the black powder club in Pretoria who has one. His idea of fun is shooting shotgun clays at 300m using peep sights like the ones in the picture. The day that I was there he hit 5/5.

    Also definitely on my list!
