Re: Swiss 1911 vs. K31

I always load my GP11 similar to .308 for all my Swiss. Thats just me.

but worth the effort. I believe they are the best of the breed, especially
at long ranges. You won't be disappointed.

Re: Hey there from Virginia

Welcome to the forum

Mauser rifles seem to breed in collections.
Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Re: Sad day because of G33/40

That looks like a great project.
There are posts on electrolysis which may clean the metal work up a little more.
To find the correct furniture may take a while but will be worth it.
Another one to be saved. :clap:

Re: Schmidt Reuben K11

I have been very fortunate to pick up some good examples of the Swiss rifle of late. This one will go to the range in a couple of weeks to blow out the webs.
