  • Pretty happy with the way it came out. So glad mine had a walnut stock. I also have a one with a beech stock which shows every nick and gouge.
  • Managed to get most of the damage out of the stock. Ice climbing crampons that Swiss soldiers slung over their shoulder often tore up the stocks. I had to fill some deep gouges but the end result was worth it.

Brutus' Description

Although the K31 is a straight-pull carbine like many other Swiss rifles, it was not designed by Rudolf Schmidt (1832-1898) as he was not alive to do so . The K31 was a totally new design by Eidgenossische Waffenfabrik in Bern, Switzerland under Colonel Furrer, and the gun does not have the Schmidt-designed 1889 or 1896 action. The first 200 K31s were made in May 1931 for troop trials (serials 500,001 - 500,200), thus the model number of 1931.

We were out of these for quite some time and just received a small quantity back in. This is without a doubt the best batch of K-31 rifles we have ever received. Stocks will show some dents and dings and bluing will show some wear in The Swiss never used corrosive ammo and all of the bores I have seen have been exceptional. These rifles combined with the round they fire ( see our 7.5x55 ammo ) are well known for being match accurate. Really good surplus is drying up fast so would encourage you to get yours today.

Good to Very Good Condition. Expect some cosmetic wear and normal dents and dings on the stocks and typical bluing wear, but overall really good serviceable surplus condition with really nice bores.  Most have leather slings but cannot guarantee you will receive a sling... Probably an 80% chance.   However, slings will definitely be included with all hand selected rifles.

These have gotten so much harder to find and really nice ones like this these are very rare... and there are no more on the horizon... Hurry.  

Manufacturer's Description

These are very nice 7.5x55 caliber, straight pull. Good to Very Good condition. Most have leather slings but cannot guarantee you will receive a sling... Probably an 80% chance. Slings will definitely be included with all hand selected rifles.

I received my Swiss K31 in the mail today. Looked the rifle over and it was in better condition than expected. Very minor dings in the stock but no "beaver chew". No rust or pitting.

Received my K31 today and my expectations fell short of the reality. No major dents or any gouges. I'm in love with this rifle! The action is butter smooth and the trigger is comparable to modern day sniper rifles. I'm not talking civilian "sniper rifles" I mean honest to god military precision rifles. This rifle ladies and gentlemen, is for a lack of better words, outstanding.

I purchased 5 of these rifles and they all are in very good shape. They have only a few dents in the stock and the metal and bluing is almost perfect. They are a very good gun and real accurate.

I purchased a hand picked rifle as my first a couple weeks ago and absolutely love it! It is a great and accurate shot along with being a clean and beautiful rifle. The purchasing process was easy and the rifle was delivered quickly.
K31 rifle, a great buy
Review by Joel on 10/8/14

I have to say that I have been wanting one of these for some time but never pulled the trigger on a purchase. I paid for the hand select option and was not disappointed. I received a walnut stock, with 85-90% bluing and a soldiers card in the stock! It came with the sling and muzzle cap, as well as all matching numbers. This is the second rifle I have bought from Classic Firearms and they are now my go too source.
Classis Firearms is the place to buy a Swiss K31
Review by murrah on 10/4/14

I must admit that I was skeptical about ordering a rifle online that I myself could not visually inspect before purchasing, but I ordered my K31 with the 20 dollar hand select and troop tag options. The rifle I received from Classic Firearms was absolutely outstanding, I HIGHLY recommend Classic Firearms, and from one skeptic to another I'm telling you "Classic Firearms and their products are good to go". I also recommend the 20 dollar hand select and troop tag options, which I feel does increase the probability of you getting a better specimen "rifle" than if you opt out of those two options available from C.F.
Far Better than I Expected!
Review by Jess on 9/30/14

Many years ago I had ordered Mauser K98 hand select from a competitor and it was the worst rifle I have ever bought. Just horrible condition, even a chunk of the butt stock was missing! So my expectations were really low when I ordered a Swiss K31 straight pull from Classic Firearms. You guys were getting ONE chance from me. WOW---thank you so very much for coming through!!! Really. A beautiful rifle, very good + condition. Normal wear, light and even, on metal surfaces. Barrel looks great. No missing parts, all stamping present and crisp including stock cartouche! ( that one got my FFL dealer's attention). It is a walnut stock-which I did NOT expect, and all serial #s matched. Magazine looked new. A very nice 1943 rifle. I paid for hand pick and troop tag--not a disappointment on either. The ONLY flaw was a hairline crack, approx. 3" long diagonally from the bolt release notch corner. I will stop drill it later and carefully repair it myself. Some might whine about something like that, but to me it is such a minor thing as to be expected on a WWII era service rifle. Hope this helps anyone 'on the fence'. Jessica
New favorite shooter?
Review by Paul on 9/30/14

Ordering the rifle was a no fuss process. The rifle arrived well packaged, safe and sound. I had paid for hand select based on cosmetics. The condition was a bit of a mixed bag. First, there was almost no major cleaning to do, which was nice because the SKS I also received that day was the filthiest rifle I have ever bought, and smelled like a Vietnamese fish market (cleaned up nice, though). The stock (walnut, I think) is kind of dinged up from top to bottom, with 2 or 3 really deep dents, minor "beaver chewing" towards the butt. The metal is in pretty good shape. The magazine has a bit of wear from use, the butt plate has no bluing if it ever did, the barrel bands are faded, and there is ever so slight fading in the bluing towards the muzzle, so I'd say 85%. The barrel, on the other hand, is outstanding. I almost blinded myself looking in it with the bore light. In other words, somebody really schleped this rifle around the alps in some snow, but had the training and ethic to actually take care of it. The good news is that I know who that was, because even though I didn't pay for it, I still ended up with the tag under the butt plate. Very cool!
Shooting the K 31 was amazing. I only fired 20 rounds because it took me a while just to find those (can't order ammo in NY), but I never missed my target at 100, holding at about 6 o'clock. The clearly 2 stage trigger is the smoothest I've ever shot on a milsurplus, including my Enfield, and is smoother than some commercial ones. I'm not a great shooter, and I didn't approach the test scientifically, but I could see 4 distinct groups on the target.
One note; I'm not sure if I'm not pulling hard enough on the bolt or if the extractor on the rifle is weak, but the shells tend to either fall in my lap or back into the action, which is no big deal but sort of weird. Thanks Classic!
The Most Beautiful Rifle I've Ever Seen!
Review by Jordan on 9/26/14
Quality
I received my K31 yesterday. Serials put it as a 1935, with troop tags to match!
This is hands-down the most beautiful rifle I've ever seen. It's in pristine condition. Other than minor dings (that are to be expected from an 80 year old rifle), this looks better than most brand new rifles!
Everything functions flawlessly, and I can not thank Classic Firearms for picking me an amazing rifle!
The only problem I have with it, though, is that it was missing the front sight blade. I have an email into Classic Firearms to see how this issue can be resolved, but other than that minor problem, everything is awesome!!
First purchase. K-31

This was my first Purchase from Classic Firearms. This was also my first online gun purchase ever. I didn't select any of the extra options. I received A BEAUTIFUL Blonde 1950. I didn't select the option for a troop tag but i got one anyway! I am not going to do a video review for this rifle because i didnt have time but i just bought another one so, i will feature this one in the video review for that one. :) I will fire both rifles in the review. Im going to leave these rifles historical and make sure that, when im gone, they are still in as good of shape as i received them. Thank you very much Classic Firearms and God Bless.
Great rifle. Great customer service.
Review by Tyler on 9/19/14

This is my second K31 from classic. I paid for the hand select option but not the troop tag. I received a 1942, all matching (including magazine and walnut stock and forend) rifle. The bluing was worn down to 80% around the muzzle and front sight and the edges of the receiver. I'm ok with that since I got a matching magazine and the correct walnut stock.
I got a sling as promised. A literally brand new 1962 made Swiss sling. However I didn't receive the stud/button to hold it back together to itself. A simple email to classic informing them and within an hour I had a reply back saying they will send me one. Two days later it was in my mail box. Great customer service.

Swiss K31 for $279
Review by Michael on 9/12/14
Quality
Rifle and ammunition was ordered on Tuesday of this week. UPS delivered on Friday. I have ordered several rifles from Classic and the service is always great. Thanks Classic!

I didn't opt for the hand select or troop tag upgrades. I received a nice beech stock 1944 K31. Numbers match at the buttplate, magazine, bolt, receiver, and both parts of the stock. The bluing is very good shape considering the age on one area on the receiver was wore a little. The butt stock shows some wear on the finish and nicks, just as described. I guess I am one of the 20% that didn't get a sling, and that is fine. However, the rifle did have the brass barrel cover. Under the plate there was not a troop, but there is imprint in the wood where one was there for a long time.

There wasn't much cosmoline, clean up process with Hoppes and CLP took about 30 minutes. The barrel is in very good condition, the Swiss did a good job in maintaining the weapon.

I was certainly glad to snag one of these during the two day sale price of $279!
Good value, excellent mechanicals

All metal is in excellent condition including the bore. The stock shows usage and is a tad rough but there are no cracks or missing chunks of wood. A wet towel and an iron will work on many of the dings.

Ordered my rifle on Sunday before Labor day and it was ready for pickup before the next weekend. Very fast shipping. After opening it up, it was ready for use withing about 15 minutes of cleaning it up. Did not opt for the hand picked and it's a really nice looking surplus rifle. Came with a sling and the muzzle cap as a bonus. It's got it's marks on the stock, slight enough i think the tree may have just had freckles, but the metal is all in fantastic shape. Have not had a chance to fire it yet, but from the looks of the barrel I would say it's got it's whole life ahead of it. With the cost of this rifle and the ammo it's like buying an eastern bloc surplus rifle and getting western quality and comfort. Thanks Classic for another great deal and smooth transaction!

Recently bought a Swiss K31 from "Aim Surplus". Paid $289.00 plus $10.00 more for hand pick option. The rifle that I received was no "hand pick", it looked more like the last one picked. Stock had large crack, had no troop tag under butt plate, bluing just ok and bolt did not cycle that smoothly. Decided to buy another when I saw them available on "Classic Firearms". Got hand pick option and what a beautiful rifle I received. Great stock, troop tag under butt plate, nice bluing, bolt smooth as butter and bore mirror bright. Could not be happier with purchase.

I've been wanting one for a long time and decided to make the jump. All I can say is I really got my moneys worth. Solid stock, dinged a bit as expected, good metal, nice bore. A good shooter. Can't believe how accurate it is. Love that straight pull bolt. Good service from Classic.

I received my K31 earlier this week and it looks great...especially since it was manufactured in 1939. The stock had the normal small dings expected with surplus rifles, but looked better than I expected. The bluing was good and once again looked better then I expected. I received a sling but it did not have a troop tag. I shot it today and was very pleased with it. Very easy to shoot and very accurate (i was using GP11 ammo). I think I might like this rifle as much as my M1 Garand. Thanks Classic Firearms!

Review by Sgt Tank on 8/5/14

The firearm it's self is awesome. The only thing keeping it from a 5 was the stock. It was really rough. The reciever, barrel, and bolt are in EXCELLENT condition. I am most impressed by them. Not a spot of rust or pitting ANYWHERE. It also was a numbers matching right down to the wood stocks. I did not get a sling with mine (bummer) but I did have the tag of the swiss user. Hoping to get lucky in finding and hearing from the family of the owner some time. Gun needs a real good cleaning before I can fire it. The bore also looks dirty but bright and should clean up real well. Now I just need to get all of the accessories needed. Also plan to recondition the wood to at least good condition. There are no breaks so it should clean up nicely. Will definately be buying from classic again. Thanks much guys. :)
Swiss K31 Review. First time C&R.
Review by Kory on 8/5/14

This was my first C&R buy with my new license. Classic Firearms quickly and promptly put all my information on file (Still have yet to hear from Century Arms sadly) so I was ready to go as soon as I made my mind up. The rifle is exactly like imagined and everyone else says. Stock is dinged and dented like all the others. The finish though is completely intact. The barrel on the other hand is absolutely immaculate. Just like it was produced yesterday. I am very thrilled with this gun and can't wait to do business again.
Amazing rifle!

Thanks again Classic Firearms for a great rifle and for being a good Christian business. You guys have my business for life!

Review by K31 on 8/1/14

I got my K31 today. Was a bit disappointed with my purchase; the stock and hand guard were pretty beat up with small gouges...i chose hand pick. The bluing was pretty poor. Going off of all the positive reviews, i did expect to get a better rifle. Especially with the hand pick option. When i ordered my mosin laminate hex, it was excellent. All numbers match except the bolt which is electropenciled. Otherwise i do like my rifle. As i plan on only getting one, i really wanted a better example.

Great K31! Went with hand select for exterior and bore and was very happy to receive a k31 with excellent finish on the hardware, great bore, and even a name tag beneath the butt-plate that was a happy surprise bonus!

The K31 is the epitome of the Swiss Straight-pull design spanning half a century of developement. If you have been on the fence about purchasing a Swiss rifle, this is the one and Classic Arms is the place to buy it!
Shipping wait proved worth it.
Review by Michael on 7/29/14

I submitted a review before it arrived because I knew what to expect, however, I don't blame classic for making me wait before putting my name on it. All in all I was right for the most part, except I expected bluing at 85-90 and a chewed up stock.

Instead, I got beechwood, virtually unblemished, bluing near 100%, and love my second K31 (1st from classic) more than my first one which is a walnut 1943.

Obviously classics supply isn't running too slim on good hand select picking. Order today.
A great gun regardless of price.
Review by NewGuyMB on 7/28/14
Quality
You will not find a better shooting new gun for 3 times the price. Great iron sights, smooth straight pull/push action. Stock will not will any beauty contests, but it's been used, it's been fired, but it has been cared for. Hard hitting 7.5x55 GP11 ammo will put most "match grade" ammo to shame. The GP11 ammo can't be used on indoor ranges because it's steel, but Prvi Partizan makes great ammo for hunting or indoors. Buy this rifle before they are all gone, or import restrictions make them unavailable. Buy this rifle, you will not be disappointed.
Classic shipped quickly, kept me informed as to status, and a very fair price.

I ordered a K31 hoping for the best. I received a very nice walnut stocked rifle, 1942 dated bolt, excellent bluing overall, 1940 dated sling, troop tag, a few expected dents in the wood, 72 years old,its earned them. This rifle was well maintained and hardly shot.mirror like bore with extremely deep rifling. Hit the X-ring within the first 6 shots fired, I'm calling that pretty good. Thank you Classic foranother excellent purchase.

Worth the extra $20?
Review by Tyler on 7/21/14

Got my K31 after only a couple days. Fast shipping. Packaged very well. Paid the extra $20 for the hand select for exterior cosmetics. My rifle was made in 1935. Sling was made in 1935 also. Got a muzzle cover which was nice. Bore spectacular. Finish was great and bolt, barrel and receiver match. Magazine not matching. Neither was the dented stock. (Numbers on the hand guard and lower stock matched themselves but not the rifle.) hairline cracks by the buttplate 2-4" long. Didn't pay for the troop tag nor did I recieve one. I did have the troop name scratched into the wood under the but plate however.
Accurate shooter. Recoil about like a 30-06. Very fun to use the straight pull bolt action.
Overall I'm pleased. But I don't think I got my money's worth from the $20 hand select because of the not orginal to gun beech stock and miss matched magazine.

Mine looks like it just came out of the factory. It has a little bang spot on the pistol grip and a few very minor scuff marks, the blueing is 98% . Now the two personel gripes i have is #1 they were out of bayonets when i ordered my gun. #2 this one is the biggest gripe it is beechwood stock! i hate those things. I like dark wood stocks . But as i said its just a personel gripe the gun is perfect. On the sling ther is a mans name is this normal or something special? The name is KARL ERB SATTLER RHEINAU (ZCH) . Tanks for the great gun hope you get bayonets soon.
If this is hand select, get yours before the decent ones are gone
Review by D.Rossi on 7/14/14

I received the rifle at my FFL. It only took three seconds to realize that if mine was hand selected, then the good ones are going fast. There is a 4 inch long patch of rust on the left side of the receiver, and a line of rust following the edge of the stock where it meets the metal all around the receiver. I am slightly disappointed, but overall quality it decent. I was hoping I wouldn't have to by having one hand selected, but I may have to have it reblued to prevent further corrosion.

I received my K31 this week exactly as promised. I chose hand select, the wood is 'dinged' but better than expected. The metal work isn't good, it's 'as new' not even a stain on the bolt face. I will write again after I find the ammo and get some rounds down range. Classic are my all time favorite company to deal with, they have helped me out when I 'needed' to cancel my previous order. They have been helpful, understanding and provided great service, all that and great products too!

Review by SW shooter on 7/12/14

Purchased two of these K31 Rifles at the standard price, and received ones that far exceeded my expectations. All matching serial numbers on the bolts. barrels, receivers, and magazines. One was manufactured in 1943, and the other in 1953. Both came with slings and muzzle guards. There were minor dings in the stocks, and bluing was greater than 90% right out of the box. Once they get a thorough cleaning I am sure they will shine even more. I would recommend a purchase of one of these by anyone looking into getting a great looking & functioning rifle. Classic Firearms even double boxed the rifles, and wrapped them in several layers of bubble wrap for shipping. Great Job! Buy one before they are all gone!
Awesome :)

The bolt, barrel and receiver match. The box magazine does not. Mine came with a sling in good condition.

If others are like this one, I'd happily recommend Classic Arms for good customer service and the rifles themselves. They have the precision of a match grade rifle, and this one got the care a fine rifle deserves all it's life.
Love it

What a gorgeous rifle. The bore is perfect, the finish is wonderful, and this is a walnut stocked K31, which most places charge extra for.

I have not been able to shoot it yet -- i just got ammo for it last week -- but overall this is an amazing piece of engineering and really a thing of beauty in its own right. I'm glad I got one of these while I could.
very pleased

I bought the K31 Swiss rifle and I am very pleased with the purchase from classic firearms. The rifle is in excellent condition. The bluing is great and the bolt action is very smooth. This is my second purchase from classic firearms and I am pleased with their products and customer service.
Thank you classic firearms

Review by William on 4/1/14

I purchased this as the bare bones version, with no 'special' picking or other payments. The rifle received was in great shape with a clean, sharp bore. The action worked flawlessly and smoothly. The stock was in fair shape with no really bad dings, just some handling marks. Had to pick up a replacement cleaning rod, but was pleasantly surprised to find the original plasticized issue 'tag' under the buttplate!
Nice Rifle
Review by Edward on 3/30/14

Paid the extra for the Hand Select and got a nice rifle, 1953 beech stock all matching. Bore looks like a Swiss bore being very nice and clean. Rifling looks good but I haven't gauged it to determine how used it is. Bluing is about 80% and looks nice. Very happy with this rifle purchase, this one will be staying with me. No problems from Classics end, very easy to deal with.
'43 Walnut almost perfect.
Review by SRChan on 3/30/14
Quality
Rifle came in nicely wrapped up in a BUNCH of bubble wrap. The metal is all perfect with 90%+ blueing and only minor damage to butt plate.

The walnut stock had very little chewing on the bottom but sadly had a vertical crack in the thin spot of the wood along the magazine release well cut, This area is reinforced so I just plan on glueing and refinishing it.

Came with sling but was missing the metal clasp, no solder tags(did not pay for those though), All Matching # with perfect mirror finish bore.
Excellent purchase
Review by Wayne on 3/29/14

I received my anxiously awaited K31 from my FFL, and was very pleased. The rifle had almost all of its bluing, and the action was smooth. It required minimal cleaning before taking it to the range, where I was able to shoot tight groups at 100 yards. My rifle did have a chunk of metal missing from the rear sight leaf right at the v-notch, but I was able to find a replacement sight leaf for a few dollars. I love this rifle, and will purchase again from Classic.

1934 K31 Carbine
Review by Deadly in OKC on 3/17/14
Quality
First, spend the $ for hand-picked for rifling and appearance - - this 1934 K31 is pristine! All numbers match and the troop tag was under the butt plate. With serial number 535###, it was ready to shoot on delivery. The rifling is bright and shiny. The stock was in very good shape with drill marks on the butt and one finger-nail size gouge on the right side where the shooter's left hand would normally rest. With minimal cleaning since it was in such great shape, the receiver was restored with its bluish-green finish by applying some Eastwood's blackening solution to it. Before doing this the receiver looked like it had normal bluing that had faded with age and wear. Now it looks new. Thanks again, Classic Firearms!

Nice rifle and well worth the money. Only issue is that I paid for hand select and its missing the front sight blade. Maybe it fell off in the box during shipping. Going online, I am having a difficult time locating one. Just starting my search and may not have looked in the right places. Overall, I have had great experiences with Classic Arms and have purchase 90% of my collection from them.
I would have passed
Review by Thomas on 3/13/14
Quality
I don't think Very Good to Excellent was an accurate description. Stock has parallel cracks on both sides. Each crack is almost 4 inches long. Crack on right side leads to cut out for bolt release , On the left side it leads to a stock patch. The patch is about 2 inches wide and extends from forward part of the magazine to the rear trigger guard. Been wanting to get K31 for a while but If I had seen this one in in a gun shop I would have passed on it.

Hi Thomas - thanks for posting your review. We apologize for the cracked stock and certainly would not have allowed the rifle to leave our warehouse if it had been noticed. We do not want you to keep a rifle you are not happy with. Please do give us a call or email if you would like to return the rifle. We'll issue and RMA# for the return and refund your money once received. We are not able to send you a replacement as they all sold out very quickly as you may have noticed. We apologize form any inconvenience that may have caused for you. Thanks and God bless....

I would rate my gun at average or below, not the very good to excellent in the description. The stock fit is poor, banged up and doesn't match the rest of the gun. I can live with that, it's a Military Surplus gun. What I don't like is that the gun is missing the front sight. Now I need to find one and the tool to install it. I bought form Classic Firearms in the past with good results and probably will buy again in the future, just got the short end of the stick this time. I just wanted people to know that not every gun is perfect.
Excellent K31 from 1938
Review by Joseph G on 3/9/14
Quality
I've been wanting a K31 for a long time. usually by the time I see the few that are available, they tend to be sold out. Luckily, I put myself on the 'notify' list from Classic for the K31. As soon as I received the email, I purchased one. The price, in my opinion was much less than what I've seen, and expected. I took a chance and requested an all matching numbers rifle. I also purchased the 'kit' as well. I was very pleased when I received the rifle. All matching numbers (Thanks you Classic), and a leather sling! According to the serial number 577###, this is from 1938. The walnut stock has its dings and scratches, but overall I'm happy with it. (No paper behind the butt plate). The metal is nice as well as the barrel. I haven't cleaned it yet. As I'm sure the serial numbers inside the stock will match as well. Once I give this a good cleaning, including the bolt, I'm sure I will be even more pleased. The kit was in excellent shape. I got the plastic bottles instead of the glass, but other than that, the kit was awesome. I see these K31s sold out FAST... If these go on sale in the future, I'm sure I will buy one again. I haven't shot this yet, even tho I bought a case of the 'surplus' ammo. Thanks again Classic.

The value of these rifles continues too climb and they are getting somewhat hard to find so I'm glad I was able to get one finally. The rifle itself is in excellent condition. According to the serial numbers it is a 1938 production model. It came with a sling which is a bonus and the stock is in excellent shape with a few minor dings here and there. Bluing is very good with some minor wear in a few spots. Also came with a troop tag. The bore is mirror and beautiful. There is no rust anywhere. Can't wait to shoot it! I will post some pics as soon as possible. Thanks again classic firearms!

Review by Vad on 3/6/14

Completely stripped and cleaned it - found all matching serial#'s everywhere, even on the underside of the handguard wood and stock. There was a minor amount of surface rust on the barrel underneath the handguard wood. Bluing on the rifle was 90% there, with wear on all the usual places of these rifles that saw use.

Wood was walnut. The finish and just the general condition of the stock was in very good shape. The butt of the stock had all the usual markings from the soldier's hobnail boots, but this one wasn't chewed up like many other K31's I've seen.

The rifling was mirror-like with great grooves and lands. The stamps/serial#' say this rifle was produced in 1940, and the leather sling that came with it has a stamp from 1939.

I went out to the range today and I was astonished at the trigger - its better than most modern rifles!! I also was surprised at how accurate the rifle was - I did better at 100 yards than all my other surplus rifles, and even some of my modern scoped rifles. I was using surplus GP11 ammo.

Seems the hype about the accuracy of these rifles and ammo really is true, after all. I also noticed that the Swiss "floated" the barrel on this rifle - never seen that before on a mil-surplus.

Thank you, Classic!
Great Rifle

Great rifle in good shape
Review by Brenton Adams on 7/10/13
Quality
I would say overall its in 'good to very good' condition. 1955 by the serial/ all matching

The bore is pristine incredibly sharp lands and grooves, crown perfect with a few small nicks on the outside diameter, none on the inside.

The trigger is hands down the finest on a milsurp I've ever handled.

The wood is in fair shape, some yahoo carved 'FG' with a (swiss army) penknife....

My only issue is the condition of the blue. I would call it 70% overall, less under the handguards. The bottom of the barrel is worn off in spots like something splashed on it and the receiver blue is very worn on the left rear.

All in all, its a great rifle. I doubt it will be my last.

Already making ammo for it.

Review by J. on 11/20/12

Recently made my K31 purchase from CF. I cannot be more happy with this decision. Military enthusiasts and collectors, like myself, should not be without this rifle. Because of the Swiss policy of neutrality, this weapon is not as well known as others like the Springfield '03, the Mosin Nagant 91/30, and the Mauser 98. But, those "in the know", so to speak, are well aware of the unprecedented rugged reliabilty and unrivaled accuracy of this rifle and the GP11 ammunition that it uses.The Swiss are also uber attentive to maintenance. The likelyhood of receiving a rifle that is not in at least good-very good condition is minimal. Like wise with non-matching numbers. It can happen, but less likely than not. At my home range, I was able to print groups less than 1 inch at 50 yards straight out of the box. Not too bad for very poor 40 something year old eyesight. CF offers the best deal I was able to find, and ammo to boot. Heart felt thanks to CF and their staff for for their polite and prompt service with my telephone order.

Received a second K31 from Classic, gun has a nice walnut stock, bright bore and has a troop tag. Only problem is a stamped mismatched bolt , I didn't specify matching serial numbers, thinking these guns were always matching, but I found out otherwise. After having bought several guns from Classic this is the first time I'm not satisfied with my purchase.

This was the first rifle I purchased through Classic, and did it ever turn out to be a super buy. I ordered the hand select with troop tag and I hit the jackpot on both. The rifle is in superb condition, with both stock and barrel being in fantastic shape. I pulled the butt plate off to find a near mint troop tag in there, so now I will hopefully be able to find the original user of this fine rifle. After getting this rifle it has quickly become the centerpiece of my collection. Thanks Classic, you guys rock!!!
Amazing
Review by Andreas6.5AR on 10/2/12
Quality
Took it home and am ever more awed by the craftsmanship and the quality of the rifle. This was one of 350 made and sold to private owners in 1943. The stock is near perfect with minimal dings and the Swiss emblem clear as new in the wood.(hand select), but it has definitely been used quite a bit (perhaps a club gun). This is evidenced by wear on the bottom of the magazine and lightening of the bluing on the receiver top. Tore it right down and cleaned it up. The barrel bore is mirror bright, with signs of wear (rounded rifling but difference between lands and grooves still substantial) , I am sure it has had considerable rounds through it but I think it is still in good shape. After cleaning I went straight to the range and with my 54 year old eyes resting on a shooters mat rolled up and fidgeting and changing my grip with every shot still managed about a 4.5 inch 10 shot group at 100 yards. If I had a scope and bi-pod I am sure I could improve a lot on that too. I haven't shot open sight since I was a teenager. The group I shot went from "X" lower center and up and right centered about 1.5 inches high and 1 inch to the right. The trigger is so sweet, breaking nice and clean without any gritty feel to it at all.

I wish I had the funds to get another 2 or 3. If the others are like this one, they are really worth it. Wished I had seen that the bayonets are also available when I had ordered the rifle.

Friendly, fast, competent service at the order desk... and sweet... thank you.

Kindest Regards, and God Bless,

Andreas

The K31 is a collectors dream. The Rifles action is a unique straight pull back bolt"...that is exceedingly well machined and smooth. The appearance puts some collectors off who are looking for more traditional designs but the K31 is safe, extremely accurate, fires a powerful 7.55 shell and is one of the most accurate military rifled ever made,
Best bolt action of its time
Review by USMCSurvivalist85 on 8/17/12
Quality
This is the most accurate and best bolt action of the mid 20th century. The ammo they shot was non-corrosive so metal wear is minimal to none. gp11 ammo is super accurate and still used in swiss shooting matches as the round of choice. It can be had for 45 -50 cents per round which is cheap for a large caliber bullet these days seeing as .308 etc seem to be .74 to $1 a round.recently
Outstanding weapon, Accurate & Hard hitting.
Review by Ron on 7/16/12
Quality
I lucked into a great deal on a K-31 that was, I believe, for a Colour Guard. It has a very clean and undamaged Beechwood stock and is dressed in Chrome. The Pioneer Bayonet is also chrome dressed with a Left handed Frog. This makes me think it was for a member of the Colour Guard stationed to the Left of centre. It is spot on accurate and HARD hitting with the GP-11 Ammo as well as Civilian hunting ammo. It requires a steady firm hold as it has quite a kick. Immediatly became a favourite in my collection. GP-11 getting scarce, I plan to add more bricks as it becomes available.
  • Description
  • Brutus' Description

    Although the K31 is a straight-pull carbine like many other Swiss rifles, it was not designed by Rudolf Schmidt (1832-1898) as he was not alive to do so . The K31 was a totally new design by Eidgenossische Waffenfabrik in Bern, Switzerland under Colonel Furrer, and the gun does not have the Schmidt-designed 1889 or 1896 action. The first 200 K31s were made in May 1931 for troop trials (serials 500,001 - 500,200), thus the model number of 1931.

    We were out of these for quite some time and just received a small quantity back in. This is without a doubt the best batch of K-31 rifles we have ever received. Stocks will show some dents and dings and bluing will show some wear in The Swiss never used corrosive ammo and all of the bores I have seen have been exceptional. These rifles combined with the round they fire ( see our 7.5x55 ammo ) are well known for being match accurate. Really good surplus is drying up fast so would encourage you to get yours today.

    Good to Very Good Condition. Expect some cosmetic wear and normal dents and dings on the stocks and typical bluing wear, but overall really good serviceable surplus condition with really nice bores.  Most have leather slings but cannot guarantee you will receive a sling... Probably an 80% chance.   However, slings will definitely be included with all hand selected rifles.

    These have gotten so much harder to find and really nice ones like this these are very rare... and there are no more on the horizon... Hurry.  

    Manufacturer's Description

    These are very nice 7.5x55 caliber, straight pull. Good to Very Good condition. Most have leather slings but cannot guarantee you will receive a sling... Probably an 80% chance. Slings will definitely be included with all hand selected rifles.

    I must admit that I was skeptical about ordering a rifle online that I myself could not visually inspect before purchasing, but I ordered my K31 with the 20 dollar hand select and troop tag options. The rifle I received from Classic Firearms was absolutely outstanding, I HIGHLY recommend Classic Firearms, and from one skeptic to another I'm telling you "Classic Firearms and their products are good to go". I also recommend the 20 dollar hand select and troop tag options, which I feel does increase the probability of you getting a better specimen "rifle" than if you opt out of those two options available from C.F.
    Far Better than I Expected!

    Many years ago I had ordered Mauser K98 hand select from a competitor and it was the worst rifle I have ever bought. Just horrible condition, even a chunk of the butt stock was missing! So my expectations were really low when I ordered a Swiss K31 straight pull from Classic Firearms. You guys were getting ONE chance from me. WOW---thank you so very much for coming through!!! Really. A beautiful rifle, very good + condition. Normal wear, light and even, on metal surfaces. Barrel looks great. No missing parts, all stamping present and crisp including stock cartouche! ( that one got my FFL dealer's attention). It is a walnut stock-which I did NOT expect, and all serial #s matched. Magazine looked new. A very nice 1943 rifle. I paid for hand pick and troop tag--not a disappointment on either. The ONLY flaw was a hairline crack, approx. 3" long diagonally from the bolt release notch corner. I will stop drill it later and carefully repair it myself. Some might whine about something like that, but to me it is such a minor thing as to be expected on a WWII era service rifle. Hope this helps anyone 'on the fence'. Jessica
    New favorite shooter?
    Review by Paul on 9/30/14
    Quality
    Ordering the rifle was a no fuss process. The rifle arrived well packaged, safe and sound. I had paid for hand select based on cosmetics. The condition was a bit of a mixed bag. First, there was almost no major cleaning to do, which was nice because the SKS I also received that day was the filthiest rifle I have ever bought, and smelled like a Vietnamese fish market (cleaned up nice, though). The stock (walnut, I think) is kind of dinged up from top to bottom, with 2 or 3 really deep dents, minor "beaver chewing" towards the butt. The metal is in pretty good shape. The magazine has a bit of wear from use, the butt plate has no bluing if it ever did, the barrel bands are faded, and there is ever so slight fading in the bluing towards the muzzle, so I'd say 85%. The barrel, on the other hand, is outstanding. I almost blinded myself looking in it with the bore light. In other words, somebody really schleped this rifle around the alps in some snow, but had the training and ethic to actually take care of it. The good news is that I know who that was, because even though I didn't pay for it, I still ended up with the tag under the butt plate. Very cool!
    Shooting the K 31 was amazing. I only fired 20 rounds because it took me a while just to find those (can't order ammo in NY), but I never missed my target at 100, holding at about 6 o'clock. The clearly 2 stage trigger is the smoothest I've ever shot on a milsurplus, including my Enfield, and is smoother than some commercial ones. I'm not a great shooter, and I didn't approach the test scientifically, but I could see 4 distinct groups on the target.
    One note; I'm not sure if I'm not pulling hard enough on the bolt or if the extractor on the rifle is weak, but the shells tend to either fall in my lap or back into the action, which is no big deal but sort of weird. Thanks Classic!
    The Most Beautiful Rifle I've Ever Seen!

    I received my K31 yesterday. Serials put it as a 1935, with troop tags to match!
    This is hands-down the most beautiful rifle I've ever seen. It's in pristine condition. Other than minor dings (that are to be expected from an 80 year old rifle), this looks better than most brand new rifles!
    Everything functions flawlessly, and I can not thank Classic Firearms for picking me an amazing rifle!
    The only problem I have with it, though, is that it was missing the front sight blade. I have an email into Classic Firearms to see how this issue can be resolved, but other than that minor problem, everything is awesome!!

    This is my second K31 from classic. I paid for the hand select option but not the troop tag. I received a 1942, all matching (including magazine and walnut stock and forend) rifle. The bluing was worn down to 80% around the muzzle and front sight and the edges of the receiver. I'm ok with that since I got a matching magazine and the correct walnut stock.
    I got a sling as promised. A literally brand new 1962 made Swiss sling. However I didn't receive the stud/button to hold it back together to itself. A simple email to classic informing them and within an hour I had a reply back saying they will send me one. Two days later it was in my mail box. Great customer service.

    Rifle and ammunition was ordered on Tuesday of this week. UPS delivered on Friday. I have ordered several rifles from Classic and the service is always great. Thanks Classic!

    I didn't opt for the hand select or troop tag upgrades. I received a nice beech stock 1944 K31. Numbers match at the buttplate, magazine, bolt, receiver, and both parts of the stock. The bluing is very good shape considering the age on one area on the receiver was wore a little. The butt stock shows some wear on the finish and nicks, just as described. I guess I am one of the 20% that didn't get a sling, and that is fine. However, the rifle did have the brass barrel cover. Under the plate there was not a troop, but there is imprint in the wood where one was there for a long time.

    There wasn't much cosmoline, clean up process with Hoppes and CLP took about 30 minutes. The barrel is in very good condition, the Swiss did a good job in maintaining the weapon.

    I was certainly glad to snag one of these during the two day sale price of $279!
    Good value, excellent mechanicals

    All metal is in excellent condition including the bore. The stock shows usage and is a tad rough but there are no cracks or missing chunks of wood. A wet towel and an iron will work on many of the dings.
    A great buy

    Ordered my rifle on Sunday before Labor day and it was ready for pickup before the next weekend. Very fast shipping. After opening it up, it was ready for use withing about 15 minutes of cleaning it up. Did not opt for the hand picked and it's a really nice looking surplus rifle. Came with a sling and the muzzle cap as a bonus. It's got it's marks on the stock, slight enough i think the tree may have just had freckles, but the metal is all in fantastic shape. Have not had a chance to fire it yet, but from the looks of the barrel I would say it's got it's whole life ahead of it. With the cost of this rifle and the ammo it's like buying an eastern bloc surplus rifle and getting western quality and comfort. Thanks Classic for another great deal and smooth transaction!

    I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Ordered on a Thursday evening and received it by Tuesday. When I picked up my K31, the first gun I have purchased, I couldn't believe how lovely it is. Pristine condition, excellent bore, and it even had a strap and a muzzle guard. I absolutely love it and I am for certain going to buy from classicfirearms again. I think I see a mosin and an sks in my immediate future!

    Recently bought a Swiss K31 from "Aim Surplus". Paid $289.00 plus $10.00 more for hand pick option. The rifle that I received was no "hand pick", it looked more like the last one picked. Stock had large crack, had no troop tag under butt plate, bluing just ok and bolt did not cycle that smoothly. Decided to buy another when I saw them available on "Classic Firearms". Got hand pick option and what a beautiful rifle I received. Great stock, troop tag under butt plate, nice bluing, bolt smooth as butter and bore mirror bright. Could not be happier with purchase.

    I received my K31 earlier this week and it looks great...especially since it was manufactured in 1939. The stock had the normal small dings expected with surplus rifles, but looked better than I expected. The bluing was good and once again looked better then I expected. I received a sling but it did not have a troop tag. I shot it today and was very pleased with it. Very easy to shoot and very accurate (i was using GP11 ammo). I think I might like this rifle as much as my M1 Garand. Thanks Classic Firearms!

    The firearm it's self is awesome. The only thing keeping it from a 5 was the stock. It was really rough. The reciever, barrel, and bolt are in EXCELLENT condition. I am most impressed by them. Not a spot of rust or pitting ANYWHERE. It also was a numbers matching right down to the wood stocks. I did not get a sling with mine (bummer) but I did have the tag of the swiss user. Hoping to get lucky in finding and hearing from the family of the owner some time. Gun needs a real good cleaning before I can fire it. The bore also looks dirty but bright and should clean up real well. Now I just need to get all of the accessories needed. Also plan to recondition the wood to at least good condition. There are no breaks so it should clean up nicely. Will definately be buying from classic again. Thanks much guys. :)
    Swiss K31 Review. First time C&R.

    This was my first C&R buy with my new license. Classic Firearms quickly and promptly put all my information on file (Still have yet to hear from Century Arms sadly) so I was ready to go as soon as I made my mind up. The rifle is exactly like imagined and everyone else says. Stock is dinged and dented like all the others. The finish though is completely intact. The barrel on the other hand is absolutely immaculate. Just like it was produced yesterday. I am very thrilled with this gun and can't wait to do business again.

I asked for a Walnut stock and Classic Firearms very kindly made that happen for me. It has a very nice sling and troop tags even though I didn't pay for the hand select and troop tag option.

    I got my K31 today. Was a bit disappointed with my purchase; the stock and hand guard were pretty beat up with small gouges...i chose hand pick. The bluing was pretty poor. Going off of all the positive reviews, i did expect to get a better rifle. Especially with the hand pick option. When i ordered my mosin laminate hex, it was excellent. All numbers match except the bolt which is electropenciled. Otherwise i do like my rifle. As i plan on only getting one, i really wanted a better example.

    Great K31! Went with hand select for exterior and bore and was very happy to receive a k31 with excellent finish on the hardware, great bore, and even a name tag beneath the butt-plate that was a happy surprise bonus!

    The K31 is the epitome of the Swiss Straight-pull design spanning half a century of developement. If you have been on the fence about purchasing a Swiss rifle, this is the one and Classic Arms is the place to buy it!

    I submitted a review before it arrived because I knew what to expect, however, I don't blame classic for making me wait before putting my name on it. All in all I was right for the most part, except I expected bluing at 85-90 and a chewed up stock.

    Instead, I got beechwood, virtually unblemished, bluing near 100%, and love my second K31 (1st from classic) more than my first one which is a walnut 1943.

    Obviously classics supply isn't running too slim on good hand select picking. Order today.
    A great gun regardless of price.
    Review by NewGuyMB on 7/28/14

    You will not find a better shooting new gun for 3 times the price. Great iron sights, smooth straight pull/push action. Stock will not will any beauty contests, but it's been used, it's been fired, but it has been cared for. Hard hitting 7.5x55 GP11 ammo will put most "match grade" ammo to shame. The GP11 ammo can't be used on indoor ranges because it's steel, but Prvi Partizan makes great ammo for hunting or indoors. Buy this rifle before they are all gone, or import restrictions make them unavailable. Buy this rifle, you will not be disappointed.
    Classic shipped quickly, kept me informed as to status, and a very fair price.

    Got my K31 after only a couple days. Fast shipping. Packaged very well. Paid the extra $20 for the hand select for exterior cosmetics. My rifle was made in 1935. Sling was made in 1935 also. Got a muzzle cover which was nice. Bore spectacular. Finish was great and bolt, barrel and receiver match. Magazine not matching. Neither was the dented stock. (Numbers on the hand guard and lower stock matched themselves but not the rifle.) hairline cracks by the buttplate 2-4" long. Didn't pay for the troop tag nor did I recieve one. I did have the troop name scratched into the wood under the but plate however.
    Accurate shooter. Recoil about like a 30-06. Very fun to use the straight pull bolt action.
    Overall I'm pleased. But I don't think I got my money's worth from the $20 hand select because of the not orginal to gun beech stock and miss matched magazine.

But as i said its just a personel gripe the gun is perfect. On the sling ther is a mans name is this normal or something special? The name is KARL ERB SATTLER RHEINAU (ZCH) .

    I received the rifle at my FFL. It only took three seconds to realize that if mine was hand selected, then the good ones are going fast. There is a 4 inch long patch of rust on the left side of the receiver, and a line of rust following the edge of the stock where it meets the metal all around the receiver. I am slightly disappointed, but overall quality it decent. I was hoping I wouldn't have to by having one hand selected, but I may have to have it reblued to prevent further corrosion.

    I received my K31 this week exactly as promised. I chose hand select, the wood is 'dinged' but better than expected. The metal work isn't good, it's 'as new' not even a stain on the bolt face. I will write again after I find the ammo and get some rounds down range. Classic are my all time favorite company to deal with, they have helped me out when I 'needed' to cancel my previous order. They have been helpful, understanding and provided great service, all that and great products too!

    Purchased two of these K31 Rifles at the standard price, and received ones that far exceeded my expectations. All matching serial numbers on the bolts. barrels, receivers, and magazines. One was manufactured in 1943, and the other in 1953. Both came with slings and muzzle guards. There were minor dings in the stocks, and bluing was greater than 90% right out of the box. Once they get a thorough cleaning I am sure they will shine even more. I would recommend a purchase of one of these by anyone looking into getting a great looking & functioning rifle. Classic Firearms even double boxed the rifles, and wrapped them in several layers of bubble wrap for shipping. Great Job! Buy one before they are all gone!

    I purchased this as the bare bones version, with no 'special' picking or other payments. The rifle received was in great shape with a clean, sharp bore. The action worked flawlessly and smoothly.

    Rifle came in nicely wrapped up in a BUNCH of bubble wrap. The metal is all perfect with 90%+ blueing and only minor damage to butt plate.

    The walnut stock had very little chewing on the bottom but sadly had a vertical crack in the thin spot of the wood along the magazine release well cut, This area is reinforced so I just plan on glueing and refinishing it.

My rifle did have a chunk of metal missing from the rear sight leaf right at the v-notch, but I was able to find a replacement sight leaf for a few dollars. I love this rifle, and will purchase again from Classic.

    First, spend the $ for hand-picked for rifling and appearance - - this 1934 K31 is pristine! All numbers match and the troop tag was under the butt plate. With serial number 535###, it was ready to shoot on delivery. The rifling is bright and shiny. The stock was in very good shape with drill marks on the butt and one finger-nail size gouge on the right side where the shooter's left hand would normally rest. With minimal cleaning since it was in such great shape, the receiver was restored with its bluish-green finish by applying some Eastwood's blackening solution to it. Before doing this the receiver looked like it had normal bluing that had faded with age and wear. Now it looks new. Thanks again, Classic Firearms!

    I don't think Very Good to Excellent was an accurate description. Stock has parallel cracks on both sides. Each crack is almost 4 inches long. Crack on right side leads to cut out for bolt release , On the left side it leads to a stock patch. The patch is about 2 inches wide and extends from forward part of the magazine to the rear trigger guard. Been wanting to get K31 for a while but If I had seen this one in in a gun shop I would have passed on it.

    Hi Thomas - thanks for posting your review. We apologize for the cracked stock and certainly would not have allowed the rifle to leave our warehouse if it had been noticed. We do not want you to keep a rifle you are not happy with. Please do give us a call or email if you would like to return the rifle. We'll issue and RMA# for the return and refund your money once received. We are not able to send you a replacement as they all sold out very quickly as you may have noticed. We apologize form any inconvenience that may have caused for you. Thanks and God bless....

    I would rate my gun at average or below, not the very good to excellent in the description. The stock fit is poor, banged up and doesn't match the rest of the gun. I can live with that, it's a Military Surplus gun. What I don't like is that the gun is missing the front sight. Now I need to find one and the tool to install it. I bought form Classic Firearms in the past with good results and probably will buy again in the future, just got the short end of the stick this time. I just wanted people to know that not every gun is perfect.
    Excellent K31 from 1938
    Review by Joseph G on 3/9/14

    I've been wanting a K31 for a long time. usually by the time I see the few that are available, they tend to be sold out. Luckily, I put myself on the 'notify' list from Classic for the K31. As soon as I received the email, I purchased one. The price, in my opinion was much less than what I've seen, and expected. I took a chance and requested an all matching numbers rifle. I also purchased the 'kit' as well. I was very pleased when I received the rifle. All matching numbers (Thanks you Classic), and a leather sling! According to the serial number 577###, this is from 1938. The walnut stock has its dings and scratches, but overall I'm happy with it. (No paper behind the butt plate). The metal is nice as well as the barrel. I haven't cleaned it yet. As I'm sure the serial numbers inside the stock will match as well. Once I give this a good cleaning, including the bolt, I'm sure I will be even more pleased. The kit was in excellent shape. I got the plastic bottles instead of the glass, but other than that, the kit was awesome. I see these K31s sold out FAST... If these go on sale in the future, I'm sure I will buy one again. I haven't shot this yet, even tho I bought a case of the 'surplus' ammo. Thanks again Classic.

Bluing is very good with some minor wear in a few spots. Also came with a troop tag. The bore is mirror and beautiful. There is no rust anywhere. Can't wait to shoot it!

    Completely stripped and cleaned it - found all matching serial#'s everywhere, even on the underside of the handguard wood and stock. There was a minor amount of surface rust on the barrel underneath the handguard wood. Bluing on the rifle was 90% there, with wear on all the usual places of these rifles that saw use.

    Wood was walnut. The finish and just the general condition of the stock was in very good shape. The butt of the stock had all the usual markings from the soldier's hobnail boots, but this one wasn't chewed up like many other K31's I've seen.

    The rifling was mirror-like with great grooves and lands. The stamps/serial#' say this rifle was produced in 1940, and the leather sling that came with it has a stamp from 1939.

    I went out to the range today and I was astonished at the trigger - its better than most modern rifles!! I also was surprised at how accurate the rifle was - I did better at 100 yards than all my other surplus rifles, and even some of my modern scoped rifles. I was using surplus GP11 ammo.

    Seems the hype about the accuracy of these rifles and ammo really is true, after all. I also noticed that the Swiss "floated" the barrel on this rifle - never seen that before on a mil-surplus.

    Thank you, Classic!

    Review by Brenton Adams on 7/10/13

    I would say overall its in 'good to very good' condition. 1955 by the serial/ all matching

    The bore is pristine incredibly sharp lands and grooves, crown perfect with a few small nicks on the outside diameter, none on the inside.

    The trigger is hands down the finest on a milsurp I've ever handled.

    The wood is in fair shape, some yahoo carved 'FG' with a (swiss army) penknife....

    My only issue is the condition of the blue. I would call it 70% overall, less under the handguards. The bottom of the barrel is worn off in spots like something splashed on it and the receiver blue is very worn on the left rear.

    All in all, its a great rifle. I doubt it will be my last.

    Already making ammo for it.

    Great product. Contacted the original owner after searching for the little label at the end of the rifle

    Recently made my K31 purchase from CF. I cannot be more happy with this decision. Military enthusiasts and collectors, like myself, should not be without this rifle. Because of the Swiss policy of neutrality, this weapon is not as well known as others like the Springfield '03, the Mosin Nagant 91/30, and the Mauser 98. But, those "in the know", so to speak, are well aware of the unprecedented rugged reliabilty and unrivaled accuracy of this rifle and the GP11 ammunition that it uses.The Swiss are also uber attentive to maintenance. The likelyhood of receiving a rifle that is not in at least good-very good condition is minimal. Like wise with non-matching numbers. It can happen, but less likely than not. At my home range, I was able to print groups less than 1 inch at 50 yards straight out of the box. Not too bad for very poor 40 something year old eyesight. CF offers the best deal I was able to find, and ammo to boot. Heart felt thanks to CF and their staff for for their polite and prompt service with my telephone order.

    Nice Condition BUT Mismatched K31

    Received a second K31 from Classic, gun has a nice walnut stock, bright bore and has a troop tag. Only problem is a stamped mismatched bolt , I didn't specify matching serial numbers, thinking these guns were always matching, but I found out otherwise. After having bought several guns from Classic this is the first time I'm not satisfied with my purchase.
    One very happy owner!!

    This was the first rifle I purchased through Classic, and did it ever turn out to be a super buy. I ordered the hand select with troop tag and I hit the jackpot on both. The rifle is in superb condition, with both stock and barrel being in fantastic shape. I pulled the butt plate off to find a near mint troop tag in there, so now I will hopefully be able to find the original user of this fine rifle. After getting this rifle it has quickly become the centerpiece of my collection. Thanks Classic, you guys rock!!!
    Amazing

    Took it home and am ever more awed by the craftsmanship and the quality of the rifle. This was one of 350 made and sold to private owners in 1943. The stock is near perfect with minimal dings and the Swiss emblem clear as new in the wood.(hand select), but it has definitely been used quite a bit (perhaps a club gun). This is evidenced by wear on the bottom of the magazine and lightening of the bluing on the receiver top. Tore it right down and cleaned it up. The barrel bore is mirror bright, with signs of wear (rounded rifling but difference between lands and grooves still substantial) , I am sure it has had considerable rounds through it but I think it is still in good shape. After cleaning I went straight to the range and with my 54 year old eyes resting on a shooters mat rolled up and fidgeting and changing my grip with every shot still managed about a 4.5 inch 10 shot group at 100 yards. If I had a scope and bi-pod I am sure I could improve a lot on that too. I haven't shot open sight since I was a teenager. The group I shot went from "X" lower center and up and right centered about 1.5 inches high and 1 inch to the right. The trigger is so sweet, breaking nice and clean without any gritty feel to it at all.

    I wish I had the funds to get another 2 or 3. If the others are like this one, they are really worth it. Wished I had seen that the bayonets are also available when I had ordered the rifle.

    Friendly, fast, competent service at the order desk... and sweet... thank you.

    Kindest Regards, and God Bless,

    This rifle arrived to my FFL as scheduled, and was in impeccable condition. Nice bore, near-perfect bolt and good stock. You have to get this gun.
    Unique and superbly well made.

    The K31 is a collectors dream. The Rifles action is a unique straight pull back bolt"...that is exceedingly well machined and smooth. The appearance puts some collectors off who are looking for more traditional designs but the K31 is safe, extremely accurate, fires a powerful 7.55 shell and is one of the most accurate military rifled ever made,
    Best bolt action of its time

    This is the most accurate and best bolt action of the mid 20th century. The ammo they shot was non-corrosive so metal wear is minimal to none. gp11 ammo is super accurate and still used in swiss shooting matches as the round of choice. It can be had for 45 -50 cents per round which is cheap for a large caliber bullet these days seeing as .308 etc seem to be .74 to $1 a round.recently
    Outstanding weapon, Accurate & Hard hitting.

    I lucked into a great deal on a K-31 that was, I believe, for a Colour Guard. It has a very clean and undamaged Beechwood stock and is dressed in Chrome. The Pioneer Bayonet is also chrome dressed with a Left handed Frog. This makes me think it was for a member of the Colour Guard stationed to the Left of centre. It is spot on accurate and HARD hitting with the GP-11 Ammo as well as Civilian hunting ammo. It requires a steady firm hold as it has quite a kick. Immediatly became a favourite in my collection. GP-11 getting scarce, I plan to add more bricks as it becomes available.
