Swiss K-31 straight-pull rifle, 7.5x55 caliber. Long known as probably the most desirable of the Swiss straight pulls. This is an exceptional lot and although most would qualify as NRA surplus Good to Very Good, there is a wide range of various surplus conditions and characteristics amongst these rifles. As such we will be selling them at a standard base price representing a standard Good Condition rifle, with an option to purchase other grades/characteristics by utilizing our custom tab below.C & R Eligible
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 classified as Very Good under the custom options tab. We will also have custom options for other conditions and characteristics while supplies last. The Base Price reflects a standard Good Condition gun with other conditions and characteristics being priced either higher or lower as reflected in the custom option while supplies last. Note that some of these rifles may have their original troop tags under the buttplate. Due to time constraints, we have not taken the time to look for these or offer a custom option to insure one but many should have them. No guarantee's on that though and if you should receive a troop tag it will be purely by luck of the draw.
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.
Having said that, we have seen a lot of Swiss K31's come and go and these are as nice as we have seen.
