I bought this rifle because I knew the Swiss make nice stuff; clocks, ect.
But, I continue to be impressed. First by shooting it and then by dis-assembly. This is one fine gun at a good price. Mine was made in 1943 and the engineering is remarkable. 1943 and it has a fully-floated barrel under that long stock and hand guard. The trigger assembly is a work of art. It does look like the inside of my Rolex. I could go on.
It even shot small groups with WOLF!!
Who has tried these or has one? I can't wait to try some 600+ yard shots.

Mine is a 50's production model(can't remember the exact year). I've shot 2" groups at 100 yards with GP11 surplus and the iron sights. They are truly amazing rifles.

I have one of these fine rifles myself. They are such great shooters because of the Swiss going to non-corrosive primers long before most. I've shot out to about 300 yards with this rifle and it is dead-on accurate. The fit and finish on them is outstanding, they are smooth as glass. I would recommend rifle grease for the bolt, that's what the Swiss used, and it shows.

They are around. I see a few at gun shows every now and then. They usually run about $225 or so. I got mine a while back for under $200.

I was thinking real hard about a K-31, but isn't that ammo hard to find?
