Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Here is my k31. Picked it up at Cabelas a while back for around 200 and some change. Unfortunately, it did not have the troop tag, and it does have the billboard import mark. It is a fine shooter though, and I have taken whitetail with this rifle.

Anyone have any input on this particular rifle?

Cool Vandle. Nice rifle. I like the P series.That swiss soldier liked his rifle so much he let it follow him home. Thats how I got most of mine or so I tell Mrs grouchy. (it followed me home, honest!) :lol: I don't have a K 31 private series but do have a 1911. I think I bought it off this board a while back.

The actual name and mobile number of the previous owner is on a tag under the butt plate. Old habits die hard it seems.

I was lucky to pick this one up when it came into the country from Switzerland a couple of years ago.

I have an G1889 lined up later this year hopefully :dance:
