Hey guys,
My eyes are going on me and I am wanting to scope one of my k31s. Now I know that their mount is a drill and tap model and it appeals to me. So has anyone had any experience with this mount and between the 2 rifles I have which would be best to drill. I have a 42 walnut that is like new and a 53 beech that is spanking new, the buttplate is still blued with no wear at all. Thoughts?

Personally I own and love the clamp on type of mount from Swiss Products. I like it because I don't have to have someone drill my receiver, I can really easily remove it and remount it without losing zero, and its offset a little so I can still use the iron sights. I couldn't recommend it more.

However if you would prefer to drill and tap Ive seen others that have this type of mount and they are all typically pretty good.
This was one I think I saw before.

As to the rifle...enjoy it. Pick the rifle you think would be best for shooting and set it up!

How does the clamp on eject? Straight up?

Hey that is quite snazzy, And you say that it will hold zero..I don't plan to remove it.

My Scope mount is the aluminum mount, one of the first prototypes made about 18 years ago. The scope is a fixed 6 power and goes easily to 500 yards and beyond.
The offset of the mount is 5/8", so leave it at exactly that POI at 100 yards and it will remain so out to 1,000 yards. No need to zero it on the bullseye. If you can tell the difference beyond 200 yards, you're a much better shot than I am, Gunga Dihn.

Thank you for the information, I have just seen so many other scope mounting systems that claimed can be removed and will be zeroed that would not And that includes a trigicon acog mount. I just feel better about a permanent mount. But with the reviews I have seen on your mount I will give it a try, I sure don't want to modify my k31...It seems you make a quality product..Thanks for the help..Steve

I've had the clamp on mount on one of my K 31's for at least 9 years, I would recommend this mount to anyone, It's a great product. I've had a couple different scopes on the rifle over the years but I won't switch the mount.

I, too, am a huge fan of the Swiss Products clamp-on mount, and I hunt a lot with a K31 so scoped.

If you go this route, let us know how it works out for you.

I will go this route because I don't really want to drill any of my rifles....
