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 occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

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.
