Production dates for K31 Swiss Rifle serial numbers
I keep finding dead links to other K31 swiss sites that had this info, but are no longer online. Thought I’d post it here for posterity.
But first, a bit about why am I infatuated with the K31 Swiss?
- Unparalleled craftsmanship in the milsurp category.
- The Swiss managed to stay out of armed conflict during the service span of the K31. So, these rifles usually spent a lot of time in the rack and very little time being shot.
- The K31 Swiss shoots 7.5×55 Swiss ammo (Brownell’s link), which was never issued in corrosive form.
The K31 presents a trifecta of awesomeness that means most K31 Swiss rifles are superior shooting rifles by any standard, let alone by the standard of mass produced military service rifles. I have just acquired reloading dies for the 7.5×55 Swiss round and look forward to working up loads for better accuracy in my reloading press. I am thinking about accessorizing this one a bit with a scope mount, muzzle brake, and maybe a recoil pad (click here for Brownells link to these).
