Latest Project Rifle Complete (with pics)
After my Tikka mosin was finished I got the bug bad to do another sporter. After doing some research I decided to start buying up some of the most accurate milsurps for projects. I have a Swedish mauser, a SAKO mosin and this Swiss K31 to keep me busy through the winter. Just finished the Swiss today, it is a Swiss K31 straight pull made in 1955 by SIG. It shoots the 7.5x55 swiss cartridge and these are considered in the top 3 of most accurate milsurps. Like the proverbial swiss watch, the K31 is very well made and overtly complicated. The straight pull action is beyond awesome, follow up shots are lightning quick. I again went with a Boyds stock in pepper laminate, this one was only semi inlet and it gave me fits for a week or so before I got it to snap in right. The swiss are gun nuts and their government has no problem with giving every man and women of age a select fire rifle to take home. A company called Swiss products makes an excellent clamp on scope mount that is rock solid and also permits usage of the iron sights, which I might add are unique in that the front sight is adjustable by a sliding mechanism. I went again with the Warne mounts and for a scope I used a vintage Bushnell that has the BL (Bausch and Lomb) stamping when they were both the same company. Lenses are clear and crisp, fixed 4 power and has an appropriate post reticle. Can't wait to sight this one in and see what potential it has. The pics:
Adjustible front sight:
Note scope is mounted to allow iron sights to still be used:

Once you shoot the K31, it won't be the only one you own. They are great rifles, I have several. I have one with the Swiss Products scope mount w/an old Weaver K4 scope that I use as my hunting rifle. I will have to find pictures and post them. Yours looks nice with the gray lam, I have considered the Boyds stocks also, but thought about going with the walnut.
This one I pieced together, the action, bolt and barrel match, magazine doesn't. I purchased the stock, cut it back and added the walnut foretip. Installed the mount and scope.
This is my best looking one, 1954 w/walnut stock in very good condition.
