Re: M40A1 build

Nice job in your "re" creation!! I bet it's a tack driver. I wasn't aware of the barrel twist on the M40.

Re: Buying an Enfield wasn't the plan but......

If you are getting a 5 to 10 shot group equivalent to a grapefruit or better, you're well on your way. Nice pick up.

Re: Newbie K31

Congratulations on picking up a K31. You're obviously aware of their reputation as accurate service rifles, probably one of the most accurate actually. Enjoy your new shooter!!

Also, the "accurizing your k31" link that prof provided above truly works well!

Re: Reloading for the K31

I was thinking the same thing Prof. I don't neck size for the K31, I FL resize mine, however everyone's divided on annealing.

Re: Reloading for the K31

I already owned the old Lachmiller berdan decapper and used it to decap GP11 brass when I acquired my 1st. K31 (had 3 so far). However berdan primers have always been in short supply (most retailers don't stock them and they have to be special ordered). PRVI/PPU boxer brass is available and of exce...

Re: Reloading for the K31

Thank you everyone for the information so far. That is some really good shooting. I have a K31 that I have fired GP11 and would like to reload the brass. I can`t find a source for the berdan primers anywhere in the U.S. Anyone know if an American citizen can buy primers if they drive to Canada ? No...

Re: Reloading for the K31

Andre-Richard, trust me, both professrh and I will believe you! In fact, I went a step further. I picked up a stock made in Kentucky by Mickey McGuinness, specifically for the K31 which specifically centres the barrel in the barrel channel of the forestock and totally free-floats the barrel. From w...

Re: Reloading for the K31

Merveilleux! In Canada and the USA, the Swiss Rifle is still quite a bargain and those that do not reload can exploit GP11 at 60 cents per cartridge. Though to be honest, I enjoy shooting my 1896/11 Swiss long rifle more these days.

Re: Variation on a Theme

I've shot a Lahti, not sure if it was a M40 or M35 as my friend has since sold it. I loved shooting it as the trigger was excellent, sights simple, quite heavy and overbuilt. Though it is the most accurate service pistol that I have ever fired. At 20m, I could not believe how that pistol was groupin...
