    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

    Just one word, Wow. I got my K31 yesterday from my FFL and it was way more than than I than I could have hoped for. The stock is in beautiful condition. This rifle looks like it was hardly used. The bore just shines and the rifling is strong no pitting rust, it looks new. I can't say enough about the condition of my rifle. Thank you Classic, you have a customer for life. I also bought the kit for the 7.55swiss and it looks to be in unissued condition. The parts in it were never used. If you are thinking of getting one of these rifles don't think, get it and the kit too you will not be disappointed.

    Troop tag?
    Review by Scott on 2/22/15
    Quality
    I bought one 2 years ago and someone took the tag out first. Pretty lame that sellers go thru the trouble to remove the Butt Plate and remove the tag because they couldn't get the extra $20 out of the customer. They save the tag to put in another rifle (mismatching the history) that may not have had one under the plate! Great rifles though... none better!
    Best For The Last and Third-Time Is The Charm
    Review by Deadly in OKC on 2/9/15
    Quality
    This is the first time not using the extra $ for the hand-select option, but it is another great one from Classic Firearms! My FFL was impressed by this K31 and Classic's packaging for shipment and said, "The care and detail of their packing process shows that they know what they are doing." Serial number 597XXX is a 1939 K31 model with over 95% bluing with pristine, shiny rifling. All numbers matched. There was no troop tag, but it did come with a sling. I was hoping for a walnut stock and that's what this K31 has - - it appears that it may have been a replacement stock because "!936" was machined carved twice into the wood under the metal butt plate. The stock is in fantastic condition with only very superficial dents and dings in it that may have a refurbishing project in its future. Easrwood's Metal Blackening solution restored the bluing to 100% and a brand new sling on it makes this venerable rifle look even better. Also, fired this one right out of the box since it was so clean - - as always, the accuracy of these Swiss rifles is phenomenal. Thanks again, Classic!
    Update on my 1/10/15 review
    Review by Norm on 2/5/15
    Quality
    Here's an update on my 1/10/15 review. After 5 passes of the snake bore cleaner, the bore was blindingly clean and bright. No rust or pitting. The sling arrived three days after I called Classic. It was old, dry and weathered. I rubbed it down, both sides, with mink oil, and it is more supple and looks good. Disassembled the bolt carrier group, and cleaned every part. As this rifle is a 1944 manufacture, I inspected the bolt operating rod carefully. The 1944 models had a problem with this part after a change in steel makeup. The cracks and breaks generally appeared on the rod lugs. A careful inspection showed no cracks, and from the large amount of bluing left on the part, is probably a replacement when this rifle was refurbished in the 1950's.

    Overall, the rifle bore is in Excellent condition, the metal has about 75% bluing with no rust, but with metal wear on the left side of the receiver. The walnut stock, a deep reddish, dark brown color with beautiful grain, is in very good condition with the Swiss marking on the stock's right side deep and sharp. Another great rifle from Classic. Thank you.
    Decent, shooter grade K-31
    Review by Johnathan on 2/2/15
    Quality
    I ordered another K-31 from classic the week of my birthday. This one was much nicer than the walnut "handpick" i had ordered that arrived with a broken stock. I received a decent beech stocked K-31. The stock is a little bit dry, but i can fix that easy enough. Also looks like somebody in Switzerland had decided to start to refinish the stock and then quit. That can be remedied as well. All in all a decent shooter grade rifle.
    Pleased with order.
    Review by Theodoros on 1/24/15

    Just a described. The rifle is in good condition. I opted for the note and sling, got them. All matching serial numbers. 80% bluing. Minor dings and wear on stock, very little to no surface rust. Very good bore. Delivery was decent.

    I would recommend. I'll be buying from here again. Keep up the good work!
    Smooth as silk - Swiss K31
    Review by Bunny Eyes on 1/19/15
    Quality
    Got to fire my Swiss K31 today, smooth as silk action and kicks harder than my Mosin. Also extremely accurate however the range I was on only went out to 100 yards. That said, the quality is far superior to the Mosin, the bore was bright and shiney, no rust, no pitting, and was not overdone with oil. Bluing is about 75% IMO and had the troop tags. Did not come with the sling or barrel cover so I ordered on ebay. Fast shipping by Classic as well. I also ordered the bayonet for this rifle. Will post some pictures soon.
    Great Piece of History
    Review by Kevin R on 1/13/15
    Quality
    I received my K31 yesterday and couldn't be happier. I opted for the hand select and troop tag option for an additional $40. I really was hoping for a walnut stock and I was lucky enough to receive one. The rifle itself is great with the stock having really very minor dings. I was a bit hesitant to buy a k31 sight unseen because of the "normal" condition the stocks are generally in but this one looks great, far exceeded my expectations. Blueing is about 85% with most of the wear being around the muzzle area. However the crown looks great with one small minor scratch which doesn't look like it will be a problem with accuracy. Bore looks great. I was almost blinded when I used my bore light. The only rust I have seen is on the steel buttplate and its just a light patina, which is normal considering they most likely sat in snow for training sessions. It did have a troop tag which I thought was cool and so did my girlfriend who's not into guns. I dated my k31 to 1942 which I believe was the last year of the walnut stock. Thanks again Classic for a great rifle and a piece of history at a very affordable price. I suggest if you want one to get one while you can. I see these at Cabelas every once in awhile in way worse shape than mine and their asking sometimes double what Classic is charging.
    I Love It! Just about Perfect!

    I initially placed an order for my very first K31 on Dec 1, 2014. It arrived at my FFL and when I inspected it, it had a clear crack on the underside of the forearm grip on both sides. Disappointed, I contacted Classic. With no questions, they sent a RMA and shipping label to my e-mail within the hour. FFL shipped rifle back to Classic. Because it was the Christmas rush, everything slowed down with UPS. I finally received the replacement rifle this morning (Sat, Jan 10, 2015) from my FFL. Disappointment turned to joy. The wait was definitely worth what I got in return.

    This rifle is in very good condition, oiled bolt, smooth bolt action, clean metal with no rust, barrel dirty with no apparent rust and should clean up nicely. Bluing about 70%. Serial number places manufacture in the first quarter of 1944. The stock, dated June 1943, is very good, for a 71 year old rifle, with some scrapes, dings, and three 1 mm gouges that give it real character. I love it! Crampon marks also attest to the rough life it weathered during the tough Swiss military training and deployments.

    I paid for stock select, but did not receive the guaranteed sling. I will contact Classic about that on Monday. There was a muzzle cap, and the biggest surprise was a troop tag under the butt plate. As I look at this historical rifle, I can imagine the troops slogging through the high snows of the Swiss mountains. I will contact the owner and see about getting more history.

    I am so impressed with your outstanding, second to none, customer service. No questions asked about the initial rifle's cracked stock, very quick RMA and shipping label to my e-mail for the rifle return, and keeping me in the loop on when the rifle was picked out and boxed, and shipped with the UPS tracking number. The double boxing was an excellent idea. The rifle, too, is a very pleasant surprise as to condition and unexpected additions. If you'll send me a sling, it will be just about perfect. As I am now a happy customer, I will definitely be a repeat customer. Thank you so much for this experience, Classic.
    Exceeded My Expectations!

    Great Rifle! I looked at several surplus rifle dealers on the web and went with Classic Firearms, very glad I did. I elected to pay extra for hand select and troop tag and was amazed at the rifle I received. Walnut stock, 85% blue, entire bolt assembly was flawless and bore was bright. Came with crown cover installed. To hold one of these old straight pull bolt guns in your hands is a thing of joy. I pulled the butt-plate off to look for the troop tag and there it was. The history of this rifle comes alive. It is typical "Swiss" perfection! I can think of nowhere I have come across a rifle of this quality at this price point. This purchase was everything I expected after reading the other reviews. Happy 2015 Classic Firearms and God Bless!
    Wow!

    Holy crap....I just got this K31 today and must say, I was VERY happy with it. Folks at the gun shop were very impressed, too. I paid the extra 20 bucks for hand-picked and got a beautiful rifle with a dark wood (walnut???) stock with very few dings (I was expecting a lot of beaver chew on the butt). Metal was very nice and the inside and bolt looks almost like it has never been fired. This is my fourth rifle bought through Classic and I've been happy with everyone of them (two Mosins and a Saiga AK). My only complaint is that the rifle did not come with a sling and thought by paying for hand-picked that it was supposed to. Other than that.....I love this rifle and can't wait to shoot it!

    Got it today after work. Whoa, nice rifle! I chose hand select because I wanted it to be what it was originally. It is. It's all matching numbers, tag, sling worn, mildly (and I mean mildly) nicked here and there. I have zero complaints. Maybe it's the luck of the draw? I don't know. All I do know is I can't wait to get to the range. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!

    This rifle purchase is my first using a C&R license. I could not be more pleased. Ordering was very easy. Delivery was great considering the New Years holidays came into play. The rifle was packaged well when it arrived. Upon inspection, I have nothing but good things to say. Other than needing to be cleaned good, it was nice right out of the box. Beautiful stock. A few dings and dents that show its character, but none of the beaver chew others have mentioned. Bluing is probably 70-80%. The bore looks new. All numbers match. I did not upgrade to hand select, and did not receive a sling or troop tag. Just throwing that out there. Overall I give Classic 5 stars on this transaction. They will be getting ore of my business in the near future.

    I own quite a few military surplus rifles as that is my favorite type to collect. The Swiss K31 is definitely the finest example of good honest workmanship and design in my collection. I have not had a chance to shoot it yet but I was extremely impressed as I took it apart and cleaned it. Everything just fits together so perfectly and the bore is prestine. I received a nice looking, all matching numbers rifle from Classic and am once again very pleased. Thank you classic.
    Very nice all-matching 1941 Swiss K31 with a 1937 stock
    Review by Terry on 1/4/15
    Quality
    The rifle I received has a serial number that indicates a 1941 year of manufacture. The stock is dated July 1937 ("VII 37" under the buttplate), and is in very good condition for its age - just the usual dings and dents. All I did was clean it and rub in two coats of tung oil to seal the few spots that had the original finish worn away. All serial numbers match - receiver, bolt, magazine, handguard and buttstock. I would say 80-90% of the original blue remaining on the metal. The bore is very good and cleaned up mirror bright. There was also a tag under the buttplate with the original owner's name, unit, address and birth year (1921), and I did not pay the extra to get this. The only thing wrong with it when I got it was a really beat up buttplate - it actually had a lot of metal missing. However, that's luck of the draw with old military guns, and I was able to find a replacement part in very good condition. Over all I am very pleased with the rifle. It's one of the most interesting C&R rifles I have - definitely a keeper!
    Solid Rifle

    Just received mine in the mail, opted for the +$20 hand-pick.
    Action - 10/10. Well oiled, very tight. Bore is also bright.
    Bluing - 9/10. Good for a WW2 surplus. Barrel crown is quite good.
    Stock - 8/10. All blemishes are superficial, and I had intended to refinish the stock regardless of condition. Butt plate doesn't seat fully and is beat up, but hey -- it's a service rifle.

    Misc: the gun was packaged well, strap is in good condition, no crown cap was included.

    Worst purchase I have ever made from Classic Firearms-period !
    I Asked for hand select and Troop tag!
    This is less than what I would expect from a hand select item.
    Asked for walnut stock got a very beat up beech stock.
    Not happy - buyer beware.
    Maybe should have not asked for troop tag... Would rather have a better condition firearm than the history.
    I will be contacting classic abut this purchase and hope they can make things right. Stay tuned for update.

    Hi Jeff - Thanks for the review. However, we do not offer an option to select for walnut stock and thus we apologize for any confusion there. I just re-read the ad and I don't see anything leading to that being available, but I may be missing something somewhere. You are indeed correct regarding troop tags. When the troop tag option is selected, it does reduce the options as far as condition. You mentioned you would be contacting us, so we look forward to assisting you. Thanks again...

    This rifle is amazing. I took it to the range without wiping it down or cleaning it and the first round was in the black, dead center. I put a muzzle brake on it and it is the most fun rifle I own. The only downside is the price of the ammo, cost 3 times as much to shoot as my AK 47. I would have this as my only rifle if the ammo was a little cheaper. The rifle stock is so nice I doubt if it was ever used at all. I will continue to come here to buy weapons etc.
    Best C&R gun I've ever bought!

    This gun was a beauty right out of the box. I cleaned and lubricated it but that's all. When I finally got it to the range last week it turned out to be nearly the most accurate rifle I own, of any vintage. It cycles and shoots beautifully; the recoil is less brutal than either a Mosin or an M1 Garand--it's more of a firm shove than a punch. Trigger has a lot of travel but a really crisp light break.

    At 100 yards with iron sights and a sandbag I was putting 5 shots in a 3" circle consistently. This thing has turned out to be my favorite bolt-action rifle.

My FFL was impressed by this K31 and Classic's packaging for shipment and said, "The care and detail of their packing process shows that they know what they are doing." Serial number 597XXX is a 1939 K31 model with over 95% bluing with pristine, shiny rifling. All numbers matched. There was no troop tag, but it did come with a sling. I was hoping for a walnut stock and that's what this K31 has - - it appears that it may have been a replacement stock because "!936" was machined carved twice into the wood under the metal butt plate. The stock is in fantastic condition with only very superficial dents and dings in it that may have a refurbishing project in its future. Easrwood's Metal Blackening solution restored the bluing to 100% and a brand new sling on it makes this venerable rifle look even better. Also, fired this one right out of the box since it was so clean - - as always, the accuracy of these Swiss rifles is phenomenal. Thanks again, Classic!
      Update on my 1/10/15 review

      Here's an update on my 1/10/15 review. After 5 passes of the snake bore cleaner, the bore was blindingly clean and bright. No rust or pitting. The sling arrived three days after I called Classic. It was old, dry and weathered. I rubbed it down, both sides, with mink oil, and it is more supple and looks good. Disassembled the bolt carrier group, and cleaned every part. As this rifle is a 1944 manufacture, I inspected the bolt operating rod carefully. The 1944 models had a problem with this part after a change in steel makeup. The cracks and breaks generally appeared on the rod lugs. A careful inspection showed no cracks, and from the large amount of bluing left on the part, is probably a replacement when this rifle was refurbished in the 1950's.

      Overall, the rifle bore is in Excellent condition, the metal has about 75% bluing with no rust, but with metal wear on the left side of the receiver. The walnut stock, a deep reddish, dark brown color with beautiful grain, is in very good condition with the Swiss marking on the stock's right side deep and sharp. Another great rifle from Classic. Thank you.
      Decent, shooter grade K-31

      I ordered another K-31 from classic the week of my birthday. This one was much nicer than the walnut "handpick" i had ordered that arrived with a broken stock. I received a decent beech stocked K-31. The stock is a little bit dry, but i can fix that easy enough. Also looks like somebody in Switzerland had decided to start to refinish the stock and then quit. That can be remedied as well. All in all a decent shooter grade rifle.
      Pleased with order.

      Just a described. The rifle is in good condition. I opted for the note and sling, got them. All matching serial numbers. 80% bluing. Minor dings and wear on stock, very little to no surface rust. Very good bore. Delivery was decent.

      I would recommend. I'll be buying from here again. Keep up the good work!
      Smooth as silk - Swiss K31
      Review by Bunny Eyes on 1/19/15

      Got to fire my Swiss K31 today, smooth as silk action and kicks harder than my Mosin. Also extremely accurate however the range I was on only went out to 100 yards. That said, the quality is far superior to the Mosin, the bore was bright and shiney, no rust, no pitting, and was not overdone with oil. Bluing is about 75% IMO and had the troop tags. Did not come with the sling or barrel cover so I ordered on ebay. Fast shipping by Classic as well. I also ordered the bayonet for this rifle. Will post some pictures soon.
      Great Piece of History

      I received my K31 yesterday and couldn't be happier. I opted for the hand select and troop tag option for an additional $40. I really was hoping for a walnut stock and I was lucky enough to receive one. The rifle itself is great with the stock having really very minor dings. I was a bit hesitant to buy a k31 sight unseen because of the "normal" condition the stocks are generally in but this one looks great, far exceeded my expectations. Blueing is about 85% with most of the wear being around the muzzle area. However the crown looks great with one small minor scratch which doesn't look like it will be a problem with accuracy. Bore looks great. I was almost blinded when I used my bore light. The only rust I have seen is on the steel buttplate and its just a light patina, which is normal considering they most likely sat in snow for training sessions. It did have a troop tag which I thought was cool and so did my girlfriend who's not into guns. I dated my k31 to 1942 which I believe was the last year of the walnut stock. Thanks again Classic for a great rifle and a piece of history at a very affordable price. I suggest if you want one to get one while you can. I see these at Cabelas every once in awhile in way worse shape than mine and their asking sometimes double what Classic is charging.

      I initially placed an order for my very first K31 on Dec 1, 2014. It arrived at my FFL and when I inspected it, it had a clear crack on the underside of the forearm grip on both sides. Disappointed, I contacted Classic. With no questions, they sent a RMA and shipping label to my e-mail within the hour. FFL shipped rifle back to Classic. Because it was the Christmas rush, everything slowed down with UPS. I finally received the replacement rifle this morning (Sat, Jan 10, 2015) from my FFL. Disappointment turned to joy. The wait was definitely worth what I got in return.

      This rifle is in very good condition, oiled bolt, smooth bolt action, clean metal with no rust, barrel dirty with no apparent rust and should clean up nicely. Bluing about 70%. Serial number places manufacture in the first quarter of 1944. The stock, dated June 1943, is very good, for a 71 year old rifle, with some scrapes, dings, and three 1 mm gouges that give it real character. I love it! Crampon marks also attest to the rough life it weathered during the tough Swiss military training and deployments.

      I paid for stock select, but did not receive the guaranteed sling. I will contact Classic about that on Monday. There was a muzzle cap, and the biggest surprise was a troop tag under the butt plate. As I look at this historical rifle, I can imagine the troops slogging through the high snows of the Swiss mountains. I will contact the owner and see about getting more history.

      I am so impressed with your outstanding, second to none, customer service. No questions asked about the initial rifle's cracked stock, very quick RMA and shipping label to my e-mail for the rifle return, and keeping me in the loop on when the rifle was picked out and boxed, and shipped with the UPS tracking number. The double boxing was an excellent idea. The rifle, too, is a very pleasant surprise as to condition and unexpected additions. If you'll send me a sling, it will be just about perfect. As I am now a happy customer, I will definitely be a repeat customer. Thank you so much for this experience, Classic.

      Great Rifle! I looked at several surplus rifle dealers on the web and went with Classic Firearms, very glad I did. I elected to pay extra for hand select and troop tag and was amazed at the rifle I received. Walnut stock, 85% blue, entire bolt assembly was flawless and bore was bright. Came with crown cover installed. To hold one of these old straight pull bolt guns in your hands is a thing of joy. I pulled the butt-plate off to look for the troop tag and there it was. The history of this rifle comes alive. It is typical "Swiss" perfection! I can think of nowhere I have come across a rifle of this quality at this price point. This purchase was everything I expected after reading the other reviews. Happy 2015 Classic Firearms and God Bless!

      Holy crap....I just got this K31 today and must say, I was VERY happy with it. Folks at the gun shop were very impressed, too. I paid the extra 20 bucks for hand-picked and got a beautiful rifle with a dark wood (walnut???) stock with very few dings (I was expecting a lot of beaver chew on the butt). Metal was very nice and the inside and bolt looks almost like it has never been fired. This is my fourth rifle bought through Classic and I've been happy with everyone of them (two Mosins and a Saiga AK). My only complaint is that the rifle did not come with a sling and thought by paying for hand-picked that it was supposed to. Other than that.....I love this rifle and can't wait to shoot it!

      Got it today after work. Whoa, nice rifle! I chose hand select because I wanted it to be what it was originally. It is. It's all matching numbers, tag, sling worn, mildly (and I mean mildly) nicked here and there. I have zero complaints. Maybe it's the luck of the draw? I don't know. All I do know is I can't wait to get to the range. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!

      This rifle purchase is my first using a C&R license. I could not be more pleased. Ordering was very easy. Delivery was great considering the New Years holidays came into play. The rifle was packaged well when it arrived. Upon inspection, I have nothing but good things to say. Other than needing to be cleaned good, it was nice right out of the box. Beautiful stock. A few dings and dents that show its character, but none of the beaver chew others have mentioned. Bluing is probably 70-80%. The bore looks new. All numbers match. I did not upgrade to hand select, and did not receive a sling or troop tag. Just throwing that out there. Overall I give Classic 5 stars on this transaction. They will be getting ore of my business in the near future.

      I own quite a few military surplus rifles as that is my favorite type to collect. The Swiss K31 is definitely the finest example of good honest workmanship and design in my collection. I have not had a chance to shoot it yet but I was extremely impressed as I took it apart and cleaned it. Everything just fits together so perfectly and the bore is prestine. I received a nice looking, all matching numbers rifle from Classic and am once again very pleased. Thank you classic.
      Very nice all-matching 1941 Swiss K31 with a 1937 stock
      Review by Terry on 1/4/15
      Quality
      The rifle I received has a serial number that indicates a 1941 year of manufacture. The stock is dated July 1937 ("VII 37" under the buttplate), and is in very good condition for its age - just the usual dings and dents. All I did was clean it and rub in two coats of tung oil to seal the few spots that had the original finish worn away. All serial numbers match - receiver, bolt, magazine, handguard and buttstock. I would say 80-90% of the original blue remaining on the metal. The bore is very good and cleaned up mirror bright. There was also a tag under the buttplate with the original owner's name, unit, address and birth year (1921), and I did not pay the extra to get this. The only thing wrong with it when I got it was a really beat up buttplate - it actually had a lot of metal missing. However, that's luck of the draw with old military guns, and I was able to find a replacement part in very good condition. Over all I am very pleased with the rifle. It's one of the most interesting C&R rifles I have - definitely a keeper!

      Just received mine in the mail, opted for the +$20 hand-pick.
      Action - 10/10. Well oiled, very tight. Bore is also bright.
      Bluing - 9/10. Good for a WW2 surplus. Barrel crown is quite good.
      Stock - 8/10. All blemishes are superficial, and I had intended to refinish the stock regardless of condition. Butt plate doesn't seat fully and is beat up, but hey -- it's a service rifle.

      Misc: the gun was packaged well, strap is in good condition, no crown cap was included.

      Worst purchase I have ever made from Classic Firearms-period !
      I Asked for hand select and Troop tag!
      This is less than what I would expect from a hand select item.
      Asked for walnut stock got a very beat up beech stock.
      Not happy - buyer beware.
      Maybe should have not asked for troop tag... Would rather have a better condition firearm than the history.
      I will be contacting classic abut this purchase and hope they can make things right. Stay tuned for update.

      Hi Jeff - Thanks for the review. However, we do not offer an option to select for walnut stock and thus we apologize for any confusion there. I just re-read the ad and I don't see anything leading to that being available, but I may be missing something somewhere. You are indeed correct regarding troop tags. When the troop tag option is selected, it does reduce the options as far as condition. You mentioned you would be contacting us, so we look forward to assisting you. Thanks again...

      This rifle is amazing. I took it to the range without wiping it down or cleaning it and the first round was in the black, dead center. I put a muzzle brake on it and it is the most fun rifle I own. The only downside is the price of the ammo, cost 3 times as much to shoot as my AK 47. I would have this as my only rifle if the ammo was a little cheaper. The rifle stock is so nice I doubt if it was ever used at all. I will continue to come here to buy weapons etc.
      Best C&R gun I've ever bought!

      This gun was a beauty right out of the box. I cleaned and lubricated it but that's all. When I finally got it to the range last week it turned out to be nearly the most accurate rifle I own, of any vintage. It cycles and shoots beautifully; the recoil is less brutal than either a Mosin or an M1 Garand--it's more of a firm shove than a punch. Trigger has a lot of travel but a really crisp light break.

      At 100 yards with iron sights and a sandbag I was putting 5 shots in a 3" circle consistently. This thing has turned out to be my favorite bolt-action rifle.
