Really Nice straight pull K-31 7.5x55 caliber Swiss Rifles


Good to Very Good . 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. We will also hand select for the presence of a Troop ID Tag.

  • New Shipment of Swiss Rifles at Classic Firearms

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

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!

I had read a lot of reviews prior to taking the plunge. I did NOT choose the hand select option. After placing my order i had to wait over 10 days for it to be shipped. Thats almost unacceptably long in this day and age, but this review is about the gun so... I eagerly tracked the package and when it arrived at my LGS i immediately picked it up. It came in a cardboard box, DOUBLE wrapped in large bubble wrap. I was getting several greedy looks from the guys behind the counter. The stock was a little dinged as to be expected, and all metal had that lovely light grease the Swiss used. Only three or four TINY spots of surface rust that came right off with a little JB and work. Bluing is great. The bolt and bore were pristine, lightly greased, and the rifling looked almost brand new. Sharp, clean, and very nice for a MILSURP rifle. The bolt even had minimal wear. No visible ring on the bolt face from firing, and the cam bearing surface (technical term is thingamabobber) that allows the locking lugs to rotate and a major friction piont in the system still has bluing! Now for the best part. The trigger. Its clean, light with a long steady first stage, a little wierd at first, but its got a glass rod break. Simply amazing for a battle rifle. I was raised on really light triggers and prefer them. this one made me smile. Folks, when these are in stock, dont wait. Get one. You will regret it if you dont.

Received my K-31 today. Packing and shipping was a bit slow, and the product went out of stock while I was waiting for it to be packed and shipped. I admit I was getting a bit worried. But it finally shipped out and I received quickly once it shipped.

I was AMAZED at the condition and quality of this rifle. I looked-up the serial number and found it was produced in 1937. Mine came with the walnut stock and sling. I also ordered a bayonet.

The wood stock on this looks almost new. No chewed up butt or major dents -- awesome. The steel and bluing is also in very good shape. Functionally, it seems fine but I have not shot it yet, still doing some cleaning, etc.

Mine came with "match stickers" affixed to the top wood. Personally, I thought this was very cool and will do my best to preserve them.

I paid for the "best of 10", and obviously got it.

I would recommend purchasing from Classic Firearms!
happy happy

The stock was a tad bit more dinged up than I had hoped for since I chose the hand select ( I got a sling ) However with s small amount of grease and TLC it has greatly improved. Bluing is good but there is some wear. The over all quality of this rifle is the best of and milsurp I own. The trigger is outstanding. Bore, lands and groves are perfect as far as I can tell. No troop tag ( I didn't pay for one BTW ). The rifle fits the description.
Classic Arms has been a great company to deal with, this was my 4th milsurp from them.
Matches the hype
Review by B on 4/21/15
Quality
Opted for the hand select and received a 1942 with a walnut stock, and leather sling, sadly no troop tag, but all numbers are matching, including the stock and hand guard. I was very happy with Classic Arms, who shipped the rifle promptly and constantly sent emails updating on the status of my order.

The condition of the stock was in fairly good condition, especially when compared to other K31s, particularly other walnut stocks that I've seen. A few "beaver marks" but no water damage. The bluing is pretty faded and there is wear on the operating rod. But the condition of the barrel is amazing. Once I removed the the stock and hand guard the exterior of the barrel is excellent with absolutely no pitting. When I first checked the bore it was quite dirty with grease, but once I ran a boresnake through and checked again, the bore was unbelievably pristine and in excellent condition. It was like looking in a mirror, as if the rifle was made yesterday.

Taking the rifle shooting sealed the excellent review. Using surplus GP11 ammo, the rifle was pretty much sighted in without needing any adjustments. The two stage trigger is crisp, like glass breaking, and the rifle would consistently knock over animal shillouette targets out to 300 meters, which was the farthest distance I was able to shoot that day unfortunately. It without a doubt shoots better than I am able to, and I can't wait to see what it can do at even further distances. I cannot speak enough about how accurate this rifle is.

The only negatives about the rifle have nothing to do with the rifle itself or Classic. The downside is that the Swiss were not able to build millions of k31s, therefore finding accessories and replacement parts is going to be difficult and expensive if the need arises. Also it would have been nice if the rifle came with a muzzle cap, as it seems K31s from Classic came with them before, but I guess this shipment didn't come with any, which is more than made up by the good overall condition of the rifle compared to previous batches.

In summary, I am a very happy customer as Classic Firearms sold an excellent product.

I just received my K31 today and I am extremely pleased with what I got.
-Shipping was pretty fast, ordered on a Friday, shipped the next Wednesday, and received on Monday 4/13 (would have been Saturday if UPS delivered on Saturday)
-I received lots of emails informing me of the progress of my order, so there was little to guess about.
-The package came in undamaged, the rifle was wrapped neatly in bubble wrap, and it was easy to unpack.
-The rifle looks amazing! Dated 1933! I checked the hand selection option and that's what I got, just beautiful. I also begged for a walnut stock, and I'm not sure if it was a coincidence or someone at Classic answering my prayers, but that's what I got.
-I've read reviews from people raving about the trigger, and after trying it for myself,... I would have to agree completely. Amazing trigger!!!
-My only disappointment was that it didn't come with a troop tag. I didn't choose that option, so that one is entirely on me. But who knows if the rifle I got instead would have been as immaculate as this one.

I have ordered from Classic in the past and I have never been let down. This batch of K31s must be a great bunch if they're anywhere as nice as the one they sent me. Looking forward to doing more business in the future.


NRA very good condition Swiss K-31

My Swiss service K-31 Karabiner Was hand picked best of ten. Made in 1949 it has the nicks and dings to prove that this old Girl was in service to her homeland for Sixty Six years. I Would like to think that this rifle was strapped to the frame of a Swiss military Bicycle as the Alpenflage clad Citizen Soldiers patrolled the narrow back roads and meadows along the areas where Switzerland shares her Borders with her Neighbors.
BLOWN AWAY
Review by Rob S on 4/1/15
Quality
WOW, Classic did it again! This is the second K31 I've bought from them. The first one was super nice and shoots excellent. It's a 1956 beechwood. It has the typical scratches on the butt but not too deep and I can't complain because the rest of it is really nice. It's one of my favorite and most fun to shoot rifles. I love my Garand (cost 3X as much) too but there is something about a K. . . Anyway, I decided to buy another and was completely blown away when I pulled it out of the box. I was hoping and shamefully begged for a walnut stock so I could have one of each in my collection. I couldn't believe what I received. A beautiful 1935 walnut stock K31!!! I mean NICE!! I paid for hand select but not tag and sling. I got both. Classic has always treated me good but I almost feel guilty about this one. I can't wait to take this to the range on Sunday. What I really can't wait for is the bolt action matches to start. As everyone knows these rifles are incredibly accurate. The first time I shot mine I thought luck had rained down on me that day. I hit everything I wanted. Not so. The reality is it happens every time I take it to the range. These rifles are the cats pajamas! Better grab one while you can. THANKS CLASSIC!!! YOU GUYS AND GALS ARE AWESOME!!!
Good rifle, after heavy cleaning
Review by Ian on 3/30/15
Quality
Opted for hand select only and received a numbers matching 1940 with walnut stock, musty old sling, and troop tags under the butt plate anyway. Very cool!

The rifle came slathered in brown shellac or some kind of ancient grease residue. It was really slopped on - every external surface, the muzzle, some inside the bolt - but not quite as bad as your average cosmoline terror. A couple hours with denatured alcohol, steel wool, cheese cloth, wooden picks, swabs, a toothbrush, Ballistol, and fresh grease for the internals...

Post cleaning report: Bluing is about 80%, the stock has surprisingly few scratches / dings, action is smooth, trigger is great. This is an extremely well built rifle. The weight, balance and feel are incredible.

The rifle has a few signs of heavy use. The rear sight base has spots worn through the bluing at every graduation, indicating a lot of target practice at all ranges. While the bore is good, the crown is definitely not crisp and the first 8-9mm of the muzzle shows rounded rifling. Still better than most crowns in milsurp world and will probably shoot just fine.

According to the tags, My soldier was in Werk Kompanie, so I imagine him up in the alps building forts and practicing to shoot invading German climbers anywhere they were "spotted."

Even with the wear and greasy grime this is still a 5 star gun. Found 300 rds of GP11 at the gun show a few days back. I can't wait to take this thing out to the range sometime soon and see if it has any of that famous k31 accuracy left.





Excellent Rifle
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.

Review by Madrat on 3/27/15

Upon delivery of my K31 I was disappointed. Very. This poor rifle is beat up pretty badly. I know its surplus, I know its not perfect, but this is'nt even in good condition with the exception of the bore, which is excellent. The poor rifle is beat up pretty badly. And thats with the $20.00 hand select! I have always bragged on you guys but this was disappointing. I guess I,ll chalk this one up to somebody having a bad day. It looked nowhere close to what was pictured. I am still going to hang with you guys for now. You have been so good in the past. I was just anticipating a rifle I wouldnt have to refinish.
Hope you all have a good day and a wonderful weekend.

Hi Madrat - We are sorry to hear the rifle did not meet your expectations. There are always a few bad apples in any large batch of surplus and it sounds like our staff may have let a bad apple slip out of here. We do apologize and stand ready to make it right. Let us know what we can do.

Review by GT on 3/19/15

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.

No visible ring on the bolt face from firing, and the cam bearing surface (technical term is thingamabobber) that allows the locking lugs to rotate and a major friction piont in the system still has bluing! Now for the best part. The trigger. Its clean, light with a long steady first stage, a little wierd at first, but its got a glass rod break. Simply amazing for a battle rifle. I was raised on really light triggers and prefer them. this one made me smile. Folks, when these are in stock, dont wait. Get one. You will regret it if you dont.

    Received my K-31 today. Packing and shipping was a bit slow, and the product went out of stock while I was waiting for it to be packed and shipped. I admit I was getting a bit worried. But it finally shipped out and I received quickly once it shipped.

    I was AMAZED at the condition and quality of this rifle. I looked-up the serial number and found it was produced in 1937. Mine came with the walnut stock and sling. I also ordered a bayonet.

    The wood stock on this looks almost new. No chewed up butt or major dents -- awesome. The steel and bluing is also in very good shape. Functionally, it seems fine but I have not shot it yet, still doing some cleaning, etc.

    Mine came with "match stickers" affixed to the top wood. Personally, I thought this was very cool and will do my best to preserve them.

    I paid for the "best of 10", and obviously got it.

    I would recommend purchasing from Classic Firearms!

    The stock was a tad bit more dinged up than I had hoped for since I chose the hand select ( I got a sling ) However with s small amount of grease and TLC it has greatly improved. Bluing is good but there is some wear. The over all quality of this rifle is the best of and milsurp I own. The trigger is outstanding. Bore, lands and groves are perfect as far as I can tell. No troop tag ( I didn't pay for one BTW ). The rifle fits the description.
    Classic Arms has been a great company to deal with, this was my 4th milsurp from them.

    Opted for the hand select and received a 1942 with a walnut stock, and leather sling, sadly no troop tag, but all numbers are matching, including the stock and hand guard. I was very happy with Classic Arms, who shipped the rifle promptly and constantly sent emails updating on the status of my order.

    The condition of the stock was in fairly good condition, especially when compared to other K31s, particularly other walnut stocks that I've seen. A few "beaver marks" but no water damage. The bluing is pretty faded and there is wear on the operating rod. But the condition of the barrel is amazing. Once I removed the the stock and hand guard the exterior of the barrel is excellent with absolutely no pitting. When I first checked the bore it was quite dirty with grease, but once I ran a boresnake through and checked again, the bore was unbelievably pristine and in excellent condition. It was like looking in a mirror, as if the rifle was made yesterday.

    Taking the rifle shooting sealed the excellent review. Using surplus GP11 ammo, the rifle was pretty much sighted in without needing any adjustments. The two stage trigger is crisp, like glass breaking, and the rifle would consistently knock over animal shillouette targets out to 300 meters, which was the farthest distance I was able to shoot that day unfortunately. It without a doubt shoots better than I am able to, and I can't wait to see what it can do at even further distances. I cannot speak enough about how accurate this rifle is.

    The only negatives about the rifle have nothing to do with the rifle itself or Classic. The downside is that the Swiss were not able to build millions of k31s, therefore finding accessories and replacement parts is going to be difficult and expensive if the need arises. Also it would have been nice if the rifle came with a muzzle cap, as it seems K31s from Classic came with them before, but I guess this shipment didn't come with any, which is more than made up by the good overall condition of the rifle compared to previous batches.

    In summary, I am a very happy customer as Classic Firearms sold an excellent product.

    I just received my K31 today and I am extremely pleased with what I got.
    -Shipping was pretty fast, ordered on a Friday, shipped the next Wednesday, and received on Monday 4/13 (would have been Saturday if UPS delivered on Saturday)
    -I received lots of emails informing me of the progress of my order, so there was little to guess about.
    -The package came in undamaged, the rifle was wrapped neatly in bubble wrap, and it was easy to unpack.
    -The rifle looks amazing! Dated 1933! I checked the hand selection option and that's what I got, just beautiful. I also begged for a walnut stock, and I'm not sure if it was a coincidence or someone at Classic answering my prayers, but that's what I got.
    -I've read reviews from people raving about the trigger, and after trying it for myself,... I would have to agree completely. Amazing trigger!!!
    -My only disappointment was that it didn't come with a troop tag. I didn't choose that option, so that one is entirely on me. But who knows if the rifle I got instead would have been as immaculate as this one.

    I have ordered from Classic in the past and I have never been let down. This batch of K31s must be a great bunch if they're anywhere as nice as the one they sent me. Looking forward to doing more business in the future.

    My Swiss service K-31 Karabiner Was hand picked best of ten. Made in 1949 it has the nicks and dings to prove that this old Girl was in service to her homeland for Sixty Six years. I Would like to think that this rifle was strapped to the frame of a Swiss military Bicycle as the Alpenflage clad Citizen Soldiers patrolled the narrow back roads and meadows along the areas where Switzerland shares her Borders with her Neighbors.

    WOW, Classic did it again! This is the second K31 I've bought from them. The first one was super nice and shoots excellent. It's a 1956 beechwood. It has the typical scratches on the butt but not too deep and I can't complain because the rest of it is really nice. It's one of my favorite and most fun to shoot rifles. I love my Garand (cost 3X as much) too but there is something about a K. . . Anyway, I decided to buy another and was completely blown away when I pulled it out of the box. I was hoping and shamefully begged for a walnut stock so I could have one of each in my collection. I couldn't believe what I received. A beautiful 1935 walnut stock K31!!! I mean NICE!! I paid for hand select but not tag and sling. I got both. Classic has always treated me good but I almost feel guilty about this one. I can't wait to take this to the range on Sunday. What I really can't wait for is the bolt action matches to start. As everyone knows these rifles are incredibly accurate. The first time I shot mine I thought luck had rained down on me that day. I hit everything I wanted. Not so. The reality is it happens every time I take it to the range. These rifles are the cats pajamas! Better grab one while you can. THANKS CLASSIC!!! YOU GUYS AND GALS ARE AWESOME!!!
    Good rifle, after heavy cleaning
    Review by Ian on 3/30/15

    Opted for hand select only and received a numbers matching 1940 with walnut stock, musty old sling, and troop tags under the butt plate anyway. Very cool!

    The rifle came slathered in brown shellac or some kind of ancient grease residue. It was really slopped on - every external surface, the muzzle, some inside the bolt - but not quite as bad as your average cosmoline terror. A couple hours with denatured alcohol, steel wool, cheese cloth, wooden picks, swabs, a toothbrush, Ballistol, and fresh grease for the internals...

    Post cleaning report: Bluing is about 80%, the stock has surprisingly few scratches / dings, action is smooth, trigger is great. This is an extremely well built rifle. The weight, balance and feel are incredible.

    The rifle has a few signs of heavy use. The rear sight base has spots worn through the bluing at every graduation, indicating a lot of target practice at all ranges. While the bore is good, the crown is definitely not crisp and the first 8-9mm of the muzzle shows rounded rifling. Still better than most crowns in milsurp world and will probably shoot just fine.

    According to the tags, My soldier was in Werk Kompanie, so I imagine him up in the alps building forts and practicing to shoot invading German climbers anywhere they were "spotted."

    Even with the wear and greasy grime this is still a 5 star gun. Found 300 rds of GP11 at the gun show a few days back. I can't wait to take this thing out to the range sometime soon and see if it has any of that famous k31 accuracy left.





    Excellent Rifle
    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.

    Upon delivery of my K31 I was disappointed. Very. This poor rifle is beat up pretty badly. I know its surplus, I know its not perfect, but this is'nt even in good condition with the exception of the bore, which is excellent. The poor rifle is beat up pretty badly. And thats with the $20.00 hand select! I have always bragged on you guys but this was disappointing. I guess I,ll chalk this one up to somebody having a bad day. It looked nowhere close to what was pictured. I am still going to hang with you guys for now. You have been so good in the past. I was just anticipating a rifle I wouldnt have to refinish.
    Hope you all have a good day and a wonderful weekend.

    Hi Madrat - We are sorry to hear the rifle did not meet your expectations. There are always a few bad apples in any large batch of surplus and it sounds like our staff may have let a bad apple slip out of here. We do apologize and stand ready to make it right. Let us know what we can do.

    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.

    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.
