  • Swiss K31 Carbine Rifle - 7.5x55 Good Surplus Condition  - C & R Eligible

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. Stocks will show some dents and dings and bluing will show some wear.. 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  are well known for being match accurate. Really good surplus is drying up fast so I would encourage you to get yours today.

Solid NRA Good Surplus Condition with some bordering on very good. Some of the rifles in this group may have a minor crack somewhere in the stock. See more about this below.  

 Expect some cosmetic wear and normal dents and dings on the stocks and typical bluing wear, but overall good serviceable surplus condition .

More about the rifles.......  Some of these rifles may  have very minor cracks in the wood stocks as are common to these rifles from this era. The cracks are for the most part relegated to the handguards, but in any case, if they are there, they will be minor and not detract from the function of the rifle and should be repairable by anyone with basic skills. 


Please note that we do not disqualify a stock crack from being considered a hand select and here is why. Sometimes you will find a minor crack in a stock but the rifle overall will be far better than others beside it  without a minor crack. Then it becomes a judgement call. As such, here is our position. If you order a hand select please know that even if it has a minor cracked stock we have compared it to others and still considered it the best of 10. We hand select within the group of rifles that we have at the time so if you don't feel that a hand select should have the possibility of a cracked stock then don't order a hand select. Also, if the possibility of receiving even a standard grade rifle with a minor cracked stock is more than you can bear then don't buy one of these. 

The importer has some of these importer stamped as Schmidt Ruben, and others importer stamped as Waffenfabrik.  Regardless of the stamping the rifles appear identical and we are selling them all under the same sku. Again, this is largely a non issue but we did want to make you aware that importer stampings may vary. 

Many ( about 40 % ) of these have their original muzzle cap/sight protector and while we do not guarantee the receipt of this accessory with the rifle there is a 
about a 4 in 10 chance of receiving a muzzle cap. Many will also come with their original sling but again we make no guarantee's on receiving a sling. If it came to us with a sling or muzzle cap you will get it that way. If not, you won't. 

We were out of these for quite some time and just received a small quantity back in. Stocks will show some dents and dings and bluing will show some wear.. 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  are well known for being match accurate. Really good surplus is drying up fast so I would encourage you to get yours today.

Important Please Read - When it comes to Swiss rifles, the grading standard can be a little skewed. The Swiss are renowned for their quality workmanship and attention to detail, and the Swiss soldiers typically took very good care to keep their rifles functional and serviceable. However, they used their rifles and carried them in training in very harsh weather conditions. As such it is very typical for the external surfaces of Swiss surplus rifles to be well used and you can expect these rifles to have a lot of dents and dings or minor cracks in the stock. You can also expect for there to be a certain amount of bluing wear that would possibly be considered excessive on other surplus rifles.

As such, when determining the condition of Swiss rifles, the industry tends to grade them against not what you might consider good, very good, or excellent when compared to other surplus rifles, but rather against the average condition of other Swiss rifle shipments that we have seen in the past.  

Now we have seen a lot of Swiss rifles and by Swiss rifle standards, these come in as pretty decent. Still, if you are expecting your rifle to sparkle like a new penny when you open the box then save yourself the disappointment and don't order one of these. 
 

Hand Select- We will hand select for best of 10 cosmetically for an additional $20.00.

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!

Excellent K31 - Best Rifle in my collection
Review by Casey on 8/28/16
Quality
I purchased my K31 a few weeks ago. I'm very happy with this rifle. Paying for the hand select was definitely worth the money. My rifles stock is beautiful. Absolutely no snow melt damage (beaver chew). Yes, the stock does have a few dings but it's still beautiful. All the metal parts are in excellent condition and the bore is Excellent/Mirror. I actually think my rifle was unissued because their was no troop tag under the butt plate. Based on the serial numbers it's a 1942 but I've seen new rifles that don't look as good as it does.

I wish I'd had enough money to buy a whole crate of them. This is actually my first Swiss rifle and it's made me fall in love with them. If Classic gets another batch of these in, I am absolutely going to buy more.
Amazing

I got my rifle a week after I ordered it, and went to pick it up from my FFL. They handed it to me and I was immediately impressed with how nice the rifle was. The stock is walnut and only a little nicked, which is great for being made in 1941. The rest of the rifle was great as well, and I shoots wonderfully. Had to jump on the deal when they got some in stock and I'm very happy that I did.
Wonderful first rifle
Review by Eugene on 7/28/16

Ordered this as my own personal owned first rifle, received it yesterday and fired it today at the range. Wonderful exterior, no visible cracks and great bluing!

I found out these were in stock by chance when I was really yearning to acquire one, and so happens they were on the site that exact time. Paid an extra 20$ for hand selection. Maybe one noticeable scratch, but overall well kept stock!
Awesome service

Well finally got the k31 not emaculant but no never beaver chew and over all some wear of bluing but that's what's expected on military surplus. Greyson thanks once again for the help. And same with the bayonet not a museum piece but expected wear and tear. The only thing wrong I found was that the safety sits in to far and causes the bolt not to open up properly. I'm sure its nothing big just needs lots of cleaning and put back together right. Sorry long review. Was going to post video but no you tube channel. The cleaning kit ordered was used but in awesome shape and has one full bottle of grease. Would I order another..... You bet. Kind of addicting but better than 401k. And last but not least it came with troop tag and it came with the sling. Awesome job classic.

Well just ordered from this new fresh batch and Greyson who helped me out with questions concerning the fresh batch of k31. Sadly I missed out on the last batch and have yet to break out my k11 hehe these are addicting I've bought between ammo and guns now close to 1500+. I'm looking forward to reviewing both the cracked sako and vkt rifles as well that I purchesed. I'll post pictures and review when I get the new to me k31. Ben and the rest of classic you guys are great. Make sure you guys give applause to Greyson. Not sure if she's new but she fits right in with your team. She is a Gem.
Awesome K31

Took a chance on a cracked stock and lost
Review by FLsurplus on 6/21/16
Quality
Ordered one with the cracked stock recently and I was under the impression it was going to be minor. Unfortunately I gambled and lost. My crack is 3 1/2 inches long and starts at the back of the action and goes all they way to the side of the magazine. I've uploaded pictures. There is a small repair close to the top of the crack but it does little to help. My friend is a gunsmith and I've done some minor work myself but this might be beyond repair. The stock actually wiggles back and forth with very little pressure and I doubt would survive under loads from firing. I wish I would have spent only a few dollars more and bought one off of gun broker knowing what I was getting. A small crack in the hand guard or crack that doesn't take away from the function of the rifle was advertised, I unfortunately got one that appears beyond repair.
The last of a legend.
Review by Steven on 6/17/16

I can figure out that this last batch are probably the last available. I have been looking for while. I have a K11 and I was impressed. These were from Century Arms as they had a tag on them. Mine I think was a pick and choose from what ever was left. It has some very obvious deviation from the norm. All the numbers match on the barrel, action, clip and so on. However the stock and forearm aren't the same. that is fine though. There is also differences in the other parts like the barrel bands and but plate.. They are all bright silver where as the rest of the parts are nicely blued. They are in good shape however. The stock is cracked above the trigger. It is about two and a half inches long but not in a fatal position. The stock is as usual with Swill rifles. It is well dented and scratched but not gouged a lot. I will have to do a bit of clean up to get it looking good. Having a K11 I know that the stocks aren't pristine. You buy these to shoot not to look at. I am impressed with the workmanship and look forward to firing it. .
Very happy with this rifle

Classic, I've noticed, has a tendency to lowball how good their guns are. I appreciate that they don't want anyone to be disappointed, and I for one was surprised at how nice the rifle was when I received it. Everything functions perfectly, the bore is flawless and the trigger is just amazing. Thank you, Classic, I look forward to my next purchase!
What? Almost no beaver chew...
Review by Nigel on 5/15/16
Quality
I guess I hit the Classic firearms K31 lottery. They sold out in less than 24hours and I didn't see the email that they were back in stock until 6 hours after the fact.
The K31 I got came in great shape, I was shocked by how little to no beaver chew the stock had (beaver chew = soldiers using the rifle stock to de ice their boots with spikes on the bottom and I would guess de ice other things in Switzerland.) The action is really smooth and faster than a conventional bolt action. Mine came with a shiny bore with strong rifling.
Only took 2 patches of Hoppes number 9 and about 15 more patches and last patch after that the bore was clean.
Got lucky, mine came with some extra goodies; the brass muzzle cover and leather sling.
If you want to know the year of your K31 go to IV8888s site (http://www.iraqveteran8888.com/the-iv8888-blog/the-k31-swiss-service-rifle)

Now to find some GP11 or order some PPU 7.5X55 Swiss for this thing and go shoot it.

Ordered the K31 by chance when the last small batch came through. I unpacked this gem last night and I couldn't believe the beauty that was revealed when I peeled back the packing paper. Early low serial rifle with walnut stock, in what I would call almost unissued condition! Again classic amazes as I truly thought all the nice rifles had been gone through long ago.... but they just keep finding these beautiful mil surp. rifles again and again. Another happy purchase from a great company.

I ordered the hand select and was blown away by what arrived at my FFL. A 1942 walnut stock in EXCELLENT condition!(I mean, excellent by Swiss rifle standards and very good+ by other milsurp standards.) I was under the impression that all the really good ones were imported years ago. Apparently I was wrong. This one has a few interesting touches like a sticker from a shooting competition and a swiss name etched into the recessed part of the handguard. I am going to do some research on this guy. Thanks Classic!!!

I'm sure its nothing big just needs lots of cleaning and put back together right. Sorry long review. Was going to post video but no you tube channel. The cleaning kit ordered was used but in awesome shape and has one full bottle of grease. Would I order another..... You bet. Kind of addicting but better than 401k. And last but not least it came with troop tag and it came with the sling. Awesome job classic.
    Awesome service

    Well just ordered from this new fresh batch and Greyson who helped me out with questions concerning the fresh batch of k31. Sadly I missed out on the last batch and have yet to break out my k11 hehe these are addicting I've bought between ammo and guns now close to 1500+. I'm looking forward to reviewing both the cracked sako and vkt rifles as well that I purchesed. I'll post pictures and review when I get the new to me k31. Ben and the rest of classic you guys are great. Make sure you guys give applause to Greyson. Not sure if she's new but she fits right in with your team. She is a Gem.
    Awesome K31

    Got a really nice 1943 with very minimal damage and Tournament stickers all over it. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend that if given the opportunity to jump all over one of these. Thanks once again Classic Firearms you guys just made me very happy!
    Took a chance on a cracked stock and lost

    Ordered one with the cracked stock recently and I was under the impression it was going to be minor. Unfortunately I gambled and lost. My crack is 3 1/2 inches long and starts at the back of the action and goes all they way to the side of the magazine. I've uploaded pictures. There is a small repair close to the top of the crack but it does little to help. My friend is a gunsmith and I've done some minor work myself but this might be beyond repair. The stock actually wiggles back and forth with very little pressure and I doubt would survive under loads from firing. I wish I would have spent only a few dollars more and bought one off of gun broker knowing what I was getting. A small crack in the hand guard or crack that doesn't take away from the function of the rifle was advertised, I unfortunately got one that appears beyond repair.
    The last of a legend.

    I can figure out that this last batch are probably the last available. I have been looking for while. I have a K11 and I was impressed. These were from Century Arms as they had a tag on them. Mine I think was a pick and choose from what ever was left. It has some very obvious deviation from the norm. All the numbers match on the barrel, action, clip and so on. However the stock and forearm aren't the same. that is fine though. There is also differences in the other parts like the barrel bands and but plate.. They are all bright silver where as the rest of the parts are nicely blued. They are in good shape however. The stock is cracked above the trigger. It is about two and a half inches long but not in a fatal position. The stock is as usual with Swill rifles. It is well dented and scratched but not gouged a lot. I will have to do a bit of clean up to get it looking good. Having a K11 I know that the stocks aren't pristine. You buy these to shoot not to look at. I am impressed with the workmanship and look forward to firing it. .
    Very happy with this rifle

    Classic, I've noticed, has a tendency to lowball how good their guns are. I appreciate that they don't want anyone to be disappointed, and I for one was surprised at how nice the rifle was when I received it. Everything functions perfectly, the bore is flawless and the trigger is just amazing. Thank you, Classic, I look forward to my next purchase!
    What? Almost no beaver chew...

    I guess I hit the Classic firearms K31 lottery. They sold out in less than 24hours and I didn't see the email that they were back in stock until 6 hours after the fact.
    The K31 I got came in great shape, I was shocked by how little to no beaver chew the stock had (beaver chew = soldiers using the rifle stock to de ice their boots with spikes on the bottom and I would guess de ice other things in Switzerland.) The action is really smooth and faster than a conventional bolt action. Mine came with a shiny bore with strong rifling.
    Only took 2 patches of Hoppes number 9 and about 15 more patches and last patch after that the bore was clean.
    Got lucky, mine came with some extra goodies; the brass muzzle cover and leather sling.
    If you want to know the year of your K31 go to IV8888s site (http://www.iraqveteran8888.com/the-iv8888-blog/the-k31-swiss-service-rifle)

    Now to find some GP11 or order some PPU 7.5X55 Swiss for this thing and go shoot it.
    I really got a good rifle from Classic

    Ordered the K31 by chance when the last small batch came through. I unpacked this gem last night and I couldn't believe the beauty that was revealed when I peeled back the packing paper. Early low serial rifle with walnut stock, in what I would call almost unissued condition! Again classic amazes as I truly thought all the nice rifles had been gone through long ago.... but they just keep finding these beautiful mil surp. rifles again and again. Another happy purchase from a great company.

    I ordered the hand select and was blown away by what arrived at my FFL. A 1942 walnut stock in EXCELLENT condition!(I mean, excellent by Swiss rifle standards and very good+ by other milsurp standards.) I was under the impression that all the really good ones were imported years ago. Apparently I was wrong. This one has a few interesting touches like a sticker from a shooting competition and a swiss name etched into the recessed part of the handguard. I am going to do some research on this guy. Thanks Classic!!!
