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 [email protected] 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.
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.
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.
So long as we are talking about Maine Military Supply, do they carry firearm T-shirts. I am looking for something cool, like a Glock, Beretta, etc. T-shirt. I have not seen any at some of the other local gunshops.
OK. Some other forums I belong to are pretty twitchy about it. We don't have any specific logo gear right now, but the owner is working on something with Bushmaster along those lines. A lot of the licensed wear is only available to a shop if they order quite heavily from the manufacturer, something that's hard to do at the "Mom and Pop" level. We do have a "Peace Through Superior Firepower" t-shirt that features an Uzi in outline, but not anything licensed.
I double-checked the K-31 ammo today and it is Gewher Patrone 11, at 60rds for $35 or 10 for $6.99. There is hunting ammo available but not in stock, Norma I believe. Not sure about a price, but I'll find out if there's any interest. Just let me know if y'all have any questions I can help with.
