  2. I like the Swiss K31.
     

  3. do you have one? i got mine at the gun shop in holden. it was $150 there
     
  4. No, I kinda want one though, I read that they are very accurate rifles. My collection is rather small, only a rifle and a shotgun, right now anyways. $150 isn't too bad at all, looks like it is in pretty good shape. I think the straight pull bolt is a cool design. They seem like very attractive rifles, though I have never seen one in person. How do you like it, is it a good gun?

    A shop in Brewer has the Swiss K-31 as low as $100. I'm not sure what the policy on this board is about advertising, but feel free to e-mail me at Rodmaker@Adelphia.net and I'll tell you who has them. I work there part-time, so I don't want to troll for business without permission. Ammo for it, 7.5x55 Swiss, is also in stock. If I've broken any rules while posting this, feel free to delete it, with my apologies.

  6. is it pickards or maine military?never been to pickards but MM had pretty rough ones for $140 when i looked. is the ammo Prvi Partizan/Wolf or GewehrPetrone 11?
     
  7. I saw an article in GUNS that said Hornady is producing brass for Graf & Sons. It is hunting loads that sell for a bout a buck per round. Not cheap, but better than close to $2/round for the Norma stuff.
     
  8. Wolf/Prvi Partizan is reloadable and about $10 box

    No warnings from the moderators, so here goes. Maine Military Supply has several K-31's, from $100-$120. Not sure what you saw for $140, since it was before I started there, but these have pretty good metal. Stocks need cleaned badly, but I had a customer bring in one yesterday that he bought last week. A lot Hard to believe it was the same gun. It was one of the $100 ones and it cleaned up really nice, with a couple of hours of work into it.
    Ammo is the Military load, not Wolf. No personal interest, since we don't work on commission, just letting y'all know where some were. A lot of the older surplus rifles clean up nicely, but most people just don't put the time or effort into them to make them look nice. I'm thinking about picking up one of the Swiss rifles, since I don't have one and it's a fairly unique piece.
