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 here ) 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 with some even bordering on excellent by K31 standards. I don't know if they saved the best for last or what but I can honestly say that this is the nicest batch of K-31 rifles overall that I have ever seen us receive over the last 20 years. Now know that K31's have always historically shown a lot of carry wear... and these are not pristine by any means, but still overall they are a higher grade than we have ever seen in the past. Somebody found the honey hole on this batch. 

 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.  
Note - Reviews on the site prior to 02/20/2015 are all from previous batches but since this batch is even better overall we expect any future reviews will be even more positive.  

We offer a hand select for external cosmetic condition, best of 10, for an additional $20.00.
We will also select for a rifle with a troop tag under the buttplate for an additional $20.00. Don't know what a Troop Tag is ? Click Here

K31 review with unboxing video
Review by David on 3/20/15
Quality
This rifle is awesome! Mine arrived two weeks after I ordered it, but it was worth the wait (also there was a big snow storm that slowed it down). After picking it up from my FFL, I opened the box to find a walnut stocked 1943 in good-very good condition. I opted for the hand select, so I was a bit disappointed my the deep scratches along the stock and a few gouges. However, I can't complain because mine is all matching and came with the troop tag (which also had the number written on it). My guy was in motorized transport.

After my initial review and cleaning of the rifle, I took it out to the desert and tried it out. I was blown away by the precision! Every shot I took at 100 yards replied with a nice bang on my 8"gong. Not a hard shot for this rifle, but difficult for my mosin. For the price, you really can't get much better. Thanks Classic!

Review by DJ-DemonSlayer on 3/29/15

1. Speed of delivery: I ordered this rifle on March 21 2015, a Saturday. It arrived on March 27, a Friday. To the Ft.Polk area. Talk about Fast!

2. Condition of Rifle: My rifle showed up in VERY GOOD condition, with only minor marks & dings. The barrel had a small amount of rust but that was easily fixed with Rem Oil, a towel, and some elbow grease. The wood was a beautiful dark brown with an original leather sling & a troop tag. Yes I selected the " best of 10" option.

3. Trigger: OH MY LORD!!! This rifle has the absolute best trigger I have ever pulled! From pistols, rifles, machine gun,shotguns, pellet guns, and super soakers!!! That includes all manner of gunsmithing and trigger modifications nothing compares to my stock K31. My heart literally skipped a beat for that first squeeze.

4. Frequency of Emails/ Customer service: I received many emails from Classic Firearms whenever my rifle reached the next level of shipping handling. I got a delivery notice/ email and literally 10 minutes later my FFL called me to pick it up. I had no issues but am absolutely positive that Classic would've been 100% helpful had the need arrived. But like Sun Tzu said better to keep the disease away than to cure it with the most miraculous of techniques. ( Not an exact quote)

5. Initial Cleaning: As you may know surplus rifles are generally covered in a protective and preservative grease like substance that can truly be a nightmare to clean out. The K31 had enough to protect the rifle but not nearly enough to cause the disturbingly long & difficult cleaning process I had come to expect with Surplus rifles. It was a relative breeze actually.

6. Potential Improvements:
I'll preface this section with saying that I have no idea how Classic receives their merchandise, how it's stored, or any of that kind of thing. I would've loved to have been able to get a Bayonet ( especially with matching serial #'s)
I'll be getting one soon any way but to have not only the rifle completely matching but also the bayonet...would simply be astonishing. In the truest since of the world.

7. Closing comments: Classic is truly a standard setter in the firearms industry. I also really like their website design. ( cheaper than dirt had the best online pricing for ammo at time of purchase)

$2000.00 target rifle for less than $400.00
Review by CHRIS on 3/28/15
Quality
Can you find a current production rifle made to the K31 quality standards for less than $1500.00? I have yet to. How about $2000.00? Not to mention how fun, and unique this firearm is. I have another K31 that is unusually accurate. It is well used with thin bluing. That doesnt seem to matter. The K31 rifles are just flat out target guns.
The rifle I just picked up is a hand select with a beech stock. The bluing is about 90%, and I dont think this particular rifle saw much service. The bolt face does not show any wear. The barrel/crown is just about perfect. I can see some jacket debris on the lands, and grooves. So I know it was shot at some point, perhaps to find zero.
I am very pleased with this rifle. The stock shows less than the normal bumps, and dings. I see no water damage on the stock. The sling shows very little wear from service. All matching numbers too. No troop tag. I dont think this rifle was ever issued to a soldier. Im just guessing. Maybe it was a station rifle, or checkpoint backup weapon. All of the moving parts show little to no wear.
I got a sweetheart of a K31.
Thanks Classic for another great buying experience.
Exceeded my expectations

I'm very pleased with this rifle. The metal is at least 90%, great bore, and the finish on the beechwood stock is very nice with minimal dings present. Transaction was smooth and shipping was fast. I'll definitely be making more purchases from Classic Firearms.
Really Nice!

I've ordered several rifles from Classic and have never been disappointed with any of them! This K-31 is by far the nicest one yet! Beautiful bore and stock 1945. all matching numbers with name tag under butt plate. Can't wait to get it out this weekend and see what it can do! Thanks Classic!
Just Blown Away!

Just unboxed the K31 ordered from Classic Firearms. Chose the "best of 10" and I most definitely got the best of them all. Walnut stock, matching numbers, in new, unissued condition! Could not be more pleased with ordering process and product received from Classic. Exceeding all of my expectations!!!
GREAT GUN!!! GREAT CLASSIC!!!
Review by GT on 3/19/15
Quality
What can I say but, Great Gun!!!, Great Classic!!! Just got the Swiss K31 rifle with hand select option today and you guys "Nailed" it. I requested for a walnut stock and excellent bore and that is what I got. Really happy with this purchase. I swab the bore with Ballistol to prepare for cleaning and the swab pretty much did not even darken. I was really surprise since this gun was from the WW2 era, I expected the bore to be dirty and fouled up although these guns were probably used more for training and practice. Serial numbers on the receiver and bolt match, haven't check or dis- assembled the rest of the rifle. Trigger is really nice and crisp not like the Russian Mosin I got before. Haven't test fired the rifle and can't wait to see how it will perform so I cook some handloads that will make it a tack driving gun. Thank You, Classic keep up the good work.
Exquisite condition, matching serial numbers, beautiful gun
Review by James on 3/19/15
Quality
Picked this one up in Classic's most recent (early 2015) round of K31 imports. Their advertising claimed it's the best shipment they've received to date, and my rifle seems to suggest that. I went in with the hand selection for exterior cosmetics, and the rifle is beautiful. No date on it, but it's got a walnut stock (so one of the later makes, i believe) and the serial numbers on all pieces that I've examined so far match. The stock is near perfect and I have my doubts about whether or not the rifle was issued at all! Came with a leather sling as well, but there was no troop tag under the buttplate.

Action functions well, although it took me a few moments to figure out just how the rifle operates. I haven't shot it yet, but the bore/barrel seem to be fine. I haven't seen any rust on it yet. Overall a damn sexy gun and you'd never guess that it's over 70 years old.
Better than I could have hoped for

Review by Dillon on 3/18/15

This was my first buy from Classicfirearms, and rifle I received exceeded my expectations - It took a while to ship, but it was well worth it. It's in beautiful condition, the stock has a few tiny dings. Has troop tag and the maintenance kit I bought with it, which is also great, not missing any tools and the grease tubes are full. I'll definitely be buying from Classic again soon.
Excellent value for a sub-$400 gun
Review by Zack on 3/18/15

I ordered this rifle with a C&R license while I was out of town and specified a shipping date that would correspond with my being back home for a week, since I travel a lot for work. However, 5 days after the shipping date, I still had not gotten a shipping notification. I called Classic and found out that it was in the receiving dept., but had not gotten shipped because it got layed to the side with the tag not visible. Anyways, long story short, they shipped it out immediately after I called them and I had the rifle within four UPS business days. Everyone makes mistakes, and its not the mistakes, but the way someone fixes them, that matters. Classic has done a great job in fixing the mistake.

Now to the rifle. I purchased the hand select option but not the troop tag option, and my rifle did not have a troop tag. No surprise there. I had been looking at the Swiss cleaning kit on the website and was thinking about getting one later. Imagine my delight when I realized that my K31 already came with one!

The rifle itself is in better condition than I could have ever imagined. I did get a walnut stock, and yes, it has its dings and dents, but looks like a solid piece of wood with no cracks whatsoever and has beautiful figuring on the rear portion of the stock. The barrel itself has to be like 99.5% bluing, even under and around the handguard contact points, absolutely incredible. The receiver and front sight post show a reasonable amount of wear to the bluing, which is to be expected, but the bolt looks like it is literally a brand new part that was just put in, even though it is matched to the receiver so I know its not. The bore has a mirror polish with what looks like excellent rifling. The crown has obviously been reground with a slight counterbore, and the job looks to have been done very well. I would much rather have a counterbored crown than a regular one, it is much more resistant to scratching from hunting or other use.

I'm hoping to take it out shooting later this week, and I'm confident it will be a great shooter.

Thanks, Classic Firearms, for my first purchase from you and quite possibly my best gun purchase ever! You have made a repeat customer.
Awsome Swiss K31
Review by Darren on 3/18/15

This review of my K31 is a little late since I ordered it back on 1/2/15 and received it a few days later. If this new batch Classic claims to be the best yet, I would recommend jumping on one now. Mine was from the last batch and the serial # (523XXX) puts it as a 1934. All numbers match, bolt, receiver, barrel, magazine, hand guard and stock. Even the butt plate underneath has the last three digits of the serial # stamped. Bore is excellent and the walnut stock has very little wear. Bluing is 90%. I paid extra for hand select and happy I did. I got a troop tag and sling. Extremely accurate with the G11 ammo. Again, if your on the fence, you better jump. Thanks Classic.
Do not waste your money on the hand select or troop tag options.
Review by Jace on 3/17/15
Quality
When I received the rifle, I was both disappointed and satisfied. I will first share the positive:
- the original sling was included
- the bore is excellent
- the bluing is 95%

Now here is the negative:
-I paid for the hand select option, but the stock had heavy bruising and gouges.
-I did not pay the extra for a troop tag, so it appears that someone removed the tag from the rifle; the screws had fresh scratches. In my opinion this is shameful as the tag will be used to falsely represent the history on another rifle-- not cool.
-It took approximately 8 days for them to ship the rifle.

I received a decent rifle, but I could do without the hand select/ troop tag gimmicks.

Hi Jace - No, we do not remove Troop Tags and would have no reason to do so. Yes, we do open and look for Troop tags since some folks want them and pay extra for them. No way for us to know if they are there unless we actually look. 95% bluing and excellent bore (your words), but you are complaining about hand select due to the stock having dings? Hand select does not specify any certain condition, but instead is simply the best out 5 or 10 (varies from product to product) of what is looked at when your order is picked. It certainly sounds like your rifle would have been a hand select.

Review by Michael on 3/15/15

Picked it up from the FFL and was impressed with it. Only thing I didn't like, was the stock was banged up (chunk missing on the right hand side), and I opted for the $20 extra best of 10 option. Will refinish the stock and see how it comes out. Other than that, it's in very good condition. The bayonet is a must, it is in excellent condition.
Worse than I was expecting
Review by dhahn365 on 3/14/15
Quality
I was really banking on this being in better shape. The other reviewers of this latest batch must have had better luck than I did, because mine is in rough shape for being "hand select". First there is water damage on the butt which I was hoping I wouldn't get for the extra money. Then there is about a 5-inch section along the right side of the rifle of about thirty scratches. That upset me and then I flipped it over and saw the same thing on the other side! It looks like it was rubbing between a few pieces of metal. The other dings and scratches were expected, but I wasn't thinking of have so much damage for hand select. Won't buy from Classic again.

Hi Dhahn365 - We apologize if your rifle did not meet your expectations. Most all surplus rifles will indeed have scratches on them, especially Swiss rifles. Any time there is an issue (such as yours), customers are encouraged to contact us via phone or email and we do all we can within reason to make it right for them. It appears you made no attempt to contact us and chose to leave this review instead. We would have been happy to assist given the opportunity. Sorry to have lost you as a customer. If we ever can be of assistance again in the future, we'll be here willing and happy to assist. Thanks and God bless. Update 3/23/15 - Dhahn365, I'm glad you decided to send us an email regarding the issue and we were able to make the transaction more palatable for you. We look forward to your future business :-)

Review by AnotherGunGuy on 3/13/15

WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!! I cannot begin to describe how nice this rifle is. I decided I had to have at least one of these after a discussion ensued on our local gun message board after Classic posted these up for sale. The consensus was this is one of the finest rifles ever made for any army anywhere, and should be a part of any mil surp collection. So I took the plunge and ordered one [along with bayonet and cleaning kit]. Got the accessories first and they are in great shape. The rifle is another story. It's beyond great shape. It's impeccable!!!! I'm blown away at how nice this rifle is. I asked for a really nice stock and Classic delivered BIGTIME, despite the delay due to the snow you guys had. [Some of you guys should look into getting snowplows for your pickups. You may only use them once or twice a year, but you'll be everyone's best friend and make a killing plowing snow.]. The bluing is worn from the butt plate, but that's expected. Everything else about this rifle is in amazing shape. Looks more like grandpa's hunting rifle instead of a weapon that served in a military. The trigger is incredibly smooth and silky. A couple of minor dings but hardly worth mentioning. Absolutely no scratches or gouges. This rifle was very well cared for. I can't wait to see the next two, and I think my local gun store owner may be ordering at least one for himself, and maybe a few for the store after seeing this. Again, thanks everyone at Classic.

If you are reading this and still on the fence about buying, get off! Click the buy button now.
Smooth First Transaction
Review by David on 3/10/15

I am rather late in the game as far as purchasing military surplus goes. I always enjoyed history and wanted a couple unusual rifles to take down to the range on a semi-regular basis. I purchased a Mosin a few months back. It is a fun gun to shoot but also wanted something to practice with in which I could work on honing in my shots without the need for a punch and a hammer to adjust my sights..

I was on the fence about my next purchase when I noticed these on the site. I put in an order with the hand select option and about 10 days later I got my rifle. Knowing the trouble that the area had with winter weather, I didn't think the timing was unreasonable. I received notification when my gun was purchased, when it was shipped, and when it was received by the FFL.

A few things I picked up from reading the forums and the reviews here. I found my FFL through the site but I contacted them first so that I knew what the fee was, knew what was expected of me to have on hand when I picked it up, and to make sure they were registered here. I would suggest you do the same if you are new to purchasing online. It saves a great deal of time and unexpected delays that can come when businesses change hands, fold, or otherwise change policies between the time they are listed here and the time you place your order.

I have also heard some complaints about the cost of shipping from other forums. The rifle came very well wrapped in bubble wrap and packaged very tightly.. The extra couple of bucks they charge for packaging is worth the investment.

What I received was a walnut stock rifle built in 1935 and a sling dated in 1936. The stock, action, barrel, and magazine all had matching dates and none of them looked renumbered. The history of the gun is laid out in the stamps on the parts.I think it is about as original as it could get and am pretty positive the sling and the rifle had been together for a very long time.

The barrel was shiny as expected with prominent rifling. The gun was well oiled and the action very smooth. The stock had dings and abrasions as expected but did not have any severe gouging or cracks. In other words, it had "character." Which is what I expected from hand select. Those that choose the hand select option hoping for unissued condition will need to reset the expectations. I, myself, was not disappointed.

The rifle is an interesting one. Very well designed and thought out for a military rifle. The Swiss definitely had an eye for quality and taking the Mosin and the K31 to the range does draw the attention of the folks bringing out their modern rifles and scopes to the range. I am not a great shot, but a decent one and it is fun to hit a target at 200 yard with open sights while watching others messing with their scopes. I am a happy customer and very satisfied with the transaction.

Well worth the wait !!

    2. Condition of Rifle: My rifle showed up in VERY GOOD condition, with only minor marks & dings. The barrel had a small amount of rust but that was easily fixed with Rem Oil, a towel, and some elbow grease. The wood was a beautiful dark brown with an original leather sling & a troop tag. Yes I selected the " best of 10" option.

    3. Trigger: OH MY LORD!!! This rifle has the absolute best trigger I have ever pulled! From pistols, rifles, machine gun,shotguns, pellet guns, and super soakers!!! That includes all manner of gunsmithing and trigger modifications nothing compares to my stock K31. My heart literally skipped a beat for that first squeeze.

    4. Frequency of Emails/ Customer service: I received many emails from Classic Firearms whenever my rifle reached the next level of shipping handling. I got a delivery notice/ email and literally 10 minutes later my FFL called me to pick it up. I had no issues but am absolutely positive that Classic would've been 100% helpful had the need arrived. But like Sun Tzu said better to keep the disease away than to cure it with the most miraculous of techniques. ( Not an exact quote)

    5. Initial Cleaning: As you may know surplus rifles are generally covered in a protective and preservative grease like substance that can truly be a nightmare to clean out. The K31 had enough to protect the rifle but not nearly enough to cause the disturbingly long & difficult cleaning process I had come to expect with Surplus rifles. It was a relative breeze actually.

    6. Potential Improvements:
    I'll preface this section with saying that I have no idea how Classic receives their merchandise, how it's stored, or any of that kind of thing. I would've loved to have been able to get a Bayonet ( especially with matching serial #'s)
    I'll be getting one soon any way but to have not only the rifle completely matching but also the bayonet...would simply be astonishing. In the truest since of the world.

    7. Closing comments: Classic is truly a standard setter in the firearms industry. I also really like their website design. ( cheaper than dirt had the best online pricing for ammo at time of purchase)

    $2000.00 target rifle for less than $400.00
    Review by CHRIS on 3/28/15
    Quality
    Can you find a current production rifle made to the K31 quality standards for less than $1500.00? I have yet to. How about $2000.00? Not to mention how fun, and unique this firearm is. I have another K31 that is unusually accurate. It is well used with thin bluing. That doesnt seem to matter. The K31 rifles are just flat out target guns.
    The rifle I just picked up is a hand select with a beech stock. The bluing is about 90%, and I dont think this particular rifle saw much service. The bolt face does not show any wear. The barrel/crown is just about perfect. I can see some jacket debris on the lands, and grooves. So I know it was shot at some point, perhaps to find zero.
    I am very pleased with this rifle. The stock shows less than the normal bumps, and dings. I see no water damage on the stock. The sling shows very little wear from service. All matching numbers too. No troop tag. I dont think this rifle was ever issued to a soldier. Im just guessing. Maybe it was a station rifle, or checkpoint backup weapon. All of the moving parts show little to no wear.
    I got a sweetheart of a K31.
    Thanks Classic for another great buying experience.

    I'm very pleased with this rifle. The metal is at least 90%, great bore, and the finish on the beechwood stock is very nice with minimal dings present. Transaction was smooth and shipping was fast. I'll definitely be making more purchases from Classic Firearms.

    Just unboxed the K31 ordered from Classic Firearms. Chose the "best of 10" and I most definitely got the best of them all. Walnut stock, matching numbers, in new, unissued condition! Could not be more pleased with ordering process and product received from Classic. Exceeding all of my expectations!!!

    What can I say but, Great Gun!!!, Great Classic!!! Just got the Swiss K31 rifle with hand select option today and you guys "Nailed" it. I requested for a walnut stock and excellent bore and that is what I got. Really happy with this purchase. I swab the bore with Ballistol to prepare for cleaning and the swab pretty much did not even darken. I was really surprise since this gun was from the WW2 era, I expected the bore to be dirty and fouled up although these guns were probably used more for training and practice. Serial numbers on the receiver and bolt match, haven't check or dis- assembled the rest of the rifle. Trigger is really nice and crisp not like the Russian Mosin I got before. Haven't test fired the rifle and can't wait to see how it will perform so I cook some handloads that will make it a tack driving gun. Thank You, Classic keep up the good work.
    Exquisite condition, matching serial numbers, beautiful gun

    Picked this one up in Classic's most recent (early 2015) round of K31 imports. Their advertising claimed it's the best shipment they've received to date, and my rifle seems to suggest that. I went in with the hand selection for exterior cosmetics, and the rifle is beautiful. No date on it, but it's got a walnut stock (so one of the later makes, i believe) and the serial numbers on all pieces that I've examined so far match. The stock is near perfect and I have my doubts about whether or not the rifle was issued at all! Came with a leather sling as well, but there was no troop tag under the buttplate.

    Action functions well, although it took me a few moments to figure out just how the rifle operates. I haven't shot it yet, but the bore/barrel seem to be fine. I haven't seen any rust on it yet. Overall a damn sexy gun and you'd never guess that it's over 70 years old.

    This was my first buy from Classicfirearms, and rifle I received exceeded my expectations - It took a while to ship, but it was well worth it. It's in beautiful condition, the stock has a few tiny dings. Has troop tag and the maintenance kit I bought with it, which is also great, not missing any tools and the grease tubes are full. I'll definitely be buying from Classic again soon.
    Excellent value for a sub-$400 gun

    I ordered this rifle with a C&R license while I was out of town and specified a shipping date that would correspond with my being back home for a week, since I travel a lot for work. However, 5 days after the shipping date, I still had not gotten a shipping notification. I called Classic and found out that it was in the receiving dept., but had not gotten shipped because it got layed to the side with the tag not visible. Anyways, long story short, they shipped it out immediately after I called them and I had the rifle within four UPS business days. Everyone makes mistakes, and its not the mistakes, but the way someone fixes them, that matters. Classic has done a great job in fixing the mistake.

    Now to the rifle. I purchased the hand select option but not the troop tag option, and my rifle did not have a troop tag. No surprise there. I had been looking at the Swiss cleaning kit on the website and was thinking about getting one later. Imagine my delight when I realized that my K31 already came with one!

    The rifle itself is in better condition than I could have ever imagined. I did get a walnut stock, and yes, it has its dings and dents, but looks like a solid piece of wood with no cracks whatsoever and has beautiful figuring on the rear portion of the stock. The barrel itself has to be like 99.5% bluing, even under and around the handguard contact points, absolutely incredible. The receiver and front sight post show a reasonable amount of wear to the bluing, which is to be expected, but the bolt looks like it is literally a brand new part that was just put in, even though it is matched to the receiver so I know its not. The bore has a mirror polish with what looks like excellent rifling. The crown has obviously been reground with a slight counterbore, and the job looks to have been done very well. I would much rather have a counterbored crown than a regular one, it is much more resistant to scratching from hunting or other use.

    I'm hoping to take it out shooting later this week, and I'm confident it will be a great shooter.

    Thanks, Classic Firearms, for my first purchase from you and quite possibly my best gun purchase ever! You have made a repeat customer.
    Awsome Swiss K31

    This review of my K31 is a little late since I ordered it back on 1/2/15 and received it a few days later. If this new batch Classic claims to be the best yet, I would recommend jumping on one now. Mine was from the last batch and the serial # (523XXX) puts it as a 1934. All numbers match, bolt, receiver, barrel, magazine, hand guard and stock. Even the butt plate underneath has the last three digits of the serial # stamped. Bore is excellent and the walnut stock has very little wear. Bluing is 90%. I paid extra for hand select and happy I did. I got a troop tag and sling. Extremely accurate with the G11 ammo. Again, if your on the fence, you better jump. Thanks Classic.
    Do not waste your money on the hand select or troop tag options.

    When I received the rifle, I was both disappointed and satisfied. I will first share the positive:
    - the original sling was included
    - the bore is excellent
    - the bluing is 95%

    Now here is the negative:
    -I paid for the hand select option, but the stock had heavy bruising and gouges.
    -I did not pay the extra for a troop tag, so it appears that someone removed the tag from the rifle; the screws had fresh scratches. In my opinion this is shameful as the tag will be used to falsely represent the history on another rifle-- not cool.
    -It took approximately 8 days for them to ship the rifle.

    I received a decent rifle, but I could do without the hand select/ troop tag gimmicks.

    Hi Jace - No, we do not remove Troop Tags and would have no reason to do so. Yes, we do open and look for Troop tags since some folks want them and pay extra for them. No way for us to know if they are there unless we actually look. 95% bluing and excellent bore (your words), but you are complaining about hand select due to the stock having dings? Hand select does not specify any certain condition, but instead is simply the best out 5 or 10 (varies from product to product) of what is looked at when your order is picked. It certainly sounds like your rifle would have been a hand select.

    Picked it up from the FFL and was impressed with it. Only thing I didn't like, was the stock was banged up (chunk missing on the right hand side), and I opted for the $20 extra best of 10 option. Will refinish the stock and see how it comes out. Other than that, it's in very good condition. The bayonet is a must, it is in excellent condition.
    Worse than I was expecting
    Review by dhahn365 on 3/14/15

    I was really banking on this being in better shape. The other reviewers of this latest batch must have had better luck than I did, because mine is in rough shape for being "hand select". First there is water damage on the butt which I was hoping I wouldn't get for the extra money. Then there is about a 5-inch section along the right side of the rifle of about thirty scratches. That upset me and then I flipped it over and saw the same thing on the other side! It looks like it was rubbing between a few pieces of metal. The other dings and scratches were expected, but I wasn't thinking of have so much damage for hand select. Won't buy from Classic again.

    Hi Dhahn365 - We apologize if your rifle did not meet your expectations. Most all surplus rifles will indeed have scratches on them, especially Swiss rifles. Any time there is an issue (such as yours), customers are encouraged to contact us via phone or email and we do all we can within reason to make it right for them. It appears you made no attempt to contact us and chose to leave this review instead. We would have been happy to assist given the opportunity. Sorry to have lost you as a customer. If we ever can be of assistance again in the future, we'll be here willing and happy to assist. Thanks and God bless. Update 3/23/15 - Dhahn365, I'm glad you decided to send us an email regarding the issue and we were able to make the transaction more palatable for you. We look forward to your future business :-)

    WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!! I cannot begin to describe how nice this rifle is. I decided I had to have at least one of these after a discussion ensued on our local gun message board after Classic posted these up for sale. The consensus was this is one of the finest rifles ever made for any army anywhere, and should be a part of any mil surp collection. So I took the plunge and ordered one [along with bayonet and cleaning kit]. Got the accessories first and they are in great shape. The rifle is another story. It's beyond great shape. It's impeccable!!!! I'm blown away at how nice this rifle is. I asked for a really nice stock and Classic delivered BIGTIME, despite the delay due to the snow you guys had. [Some of you guys should look into getting snowplows for your pickups. You may only use them once or twice a year, but you'll be everyone's best friend and make a killing plowing snow.]. The bluing is worn from the butt plate, but that's expected. Everything else about this rifle is in amazing shape. Looks more like grandpa's hunting rifle instead of a weapon that served in a military. The trigger is incredibly smooth and silky. A couple of minor dings but hardly worth mentioning. Absolutely no scratches or gouges. This rifle was very well cared for. I can't wait to see the next two, and I think my local gun store owner may be ordering at least one for himself, and maybe a few for the store after seeing this. Again, thanks everyone at Classic.

    I am rather late in the game as far as purchasing military surplus goes. I always enjoyed history and wanted a couple unusual rifles to take down to the range on a semi-regular basis. I purchased a Mosin a few months back. It is a fun gun to shoot but also wanted something to practice with in which I could work on honing in my shots without the need for a punch and a hammer to adjust my sights..

    I was on the fence about my next purchase when I noticed these on the site. I put in an order with the hand select option and about 10 days later I got my rifle. Knowing the trouble that the area had with winter weather, I didn't think the timing was unreasonable. I received notification when my gun was purchased, when it was shipped, and when it was received by the FFL.

    A few things I picked up from reading the forums and the reviews here. I found my FFL through the site but I contacted them first so that I knew what the fee was, knew what was expected of me to have on hand when I picked it up, and to make sure they were registered here. I would suggest you do the same if you are new to purchasing online. It saves a great deal of time and unexpected delays that can come when businesses change hands, fold, or otherwise change policies between the time they are listed here and the time you place your order.

    I have also heard some complaints about the cost of shipping from other forums. The rifle came very well wrapped in bubble wrap and packaged very tightly.. The extra couple of bucks they charge for packaging is worth the investment.

    What I received was a walnut stock rifle built in 1935 and a sling dated in 1936. The stock, action, barrel, and magazine all had matching dates and none of them looked renumbered. The history of the gun is laid out in the stamps on the parts.I think it is about as original as it could get and am pretty positive the sling and the rifle had been together for a very long time.

    The barrel was shiny as expected with prominent rifling. The gun was well oiled and the action very smooth. The stock had dings and abrasions as expected but did not have any severe gouging or cracks. In other words, it had "character." Which is what I expected from hand select. Those that choose the hand select option hoping for unissued condition will need to reset the expectations. I, myself, was not disappointed.

    The rifle is an interesting one. Very well designed and thought out for a military rifle. The Swiss definitely had an eye for quality and taking the Mosin and the K31 to the range does draw the attention of the folks bringing out their modern rifles and scopes to the range. I am not a great shot, but a decent one and it is fun to hit a target at 200 yard with open sights while watching others messing with their scopes. I am a happy customer and very satisfied with the transaction.

    Well worth the wait !!
