A real dog as in ruff ruff. But still shoots like a sniper rifle.

Thank you!
Actually what you're seeing is a Damper. This one is proven to cut group sizes with proven loads by 35%.
My Son's personal rifle has one of these and the target below it is a completely repeatable target shot at 135 yards.

Image

This one is one of my own personal rifles. A full dress k31, and it's a tack driver.

Image

Image

This is a muzzle Brake we mfg. Its proven to cut felt recoil by a measured 38%. It's a Clamp On type.

So is that Damper a modern add on, or was it a military creation???

I will tell you what it gives the rifle a He-man Boss look

And I forgot. This is one of our prize k31s in the Armoury.
It's an Officers issue rifle and mint with Swiss Dagger.

Image

It came to me engraved from Switzerland as an appreciation gift for my contribution to the Swiss shooting public. Both rifle and Dagger are now my Son's.

That dagger looks like if was made for the Middle ages!!! Wonderful classic lines.

Was it common for Officers Daggers to be engraved like that??

We have both A Damper and a Brake that are both screw on. They require a threader which we also manufacture. I'm not much on changing an issue rifle, abut if I salvage a stock and refinish it, it's a candidate for the threader. We only have two that are threaded in the entire armoury, but having as many k31s as there are in the racks, I didn't feel badly about threading those two. I prefer everything be of the clamp on variety.

This is the threading kit.

This is my Son in the SP armoury reloading room and with his prize Officer's Issue K31.
