1933 K31

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occaisonally inspiring ones.

1933 K31

Postby krinko » Fri Feb 03, 2006 10:16 pm

Here is a cheesy webcam shot of the serial number---looks like it's the 346th K31 to come off the line in regular production.

Kind of a big deal to me......and maybe a couple other people.

Almost let it get away. It came in with a nice 1955, which I immediately reserved for myself, but it took about 12 hours for the serial number to click in my head---12 hours that this rifle was up for general sale.

I got lucky, though.

Go ahead, both of you. Rub it in. I'm still looking for a '33.

Karl,

I paid big money for my 1933. Probably to much but I really wanted one. I got a 58 also but the stock is not matching.
