Swiss K31 Carbine, originally produced in 1941, sporterized by the original owner. 95% finish. 3/5 Bore. 4/5 Stock. Aftermarket, non-serialized wood stock. Bolt matching serial number. Magazine matching serial number. Rifling is noticeably worn.
Aftermarket wood stock is in very good condition. There are some light scratches as well as a few gouges found in the wood, likely sustained during transport as these gouges appear fairly new. Checkering on the grip and on the fore-end. Flared cheek well on the left side of the stock. Rubber butt pad.
Receiver bluing has a plum tint. There is edge wear on the inside of the loading slot but otherwise it is very well intact. Barrel bluing has a few scattered blemishes. A front sling mount has been installed onto the underside of the barrel.
A scope mount has been added to the receiver. Included is a Leupold VARI-X IIC x39 scope with rubber lens covers. Scope is mounted onto a quick-detach system to allow you to make use of the original iron sights; to remove the scope, the small knob on the rear mount is lifted upward, then the scope is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise. You may then lift the scope up and off.
A set trigger system has replaced the original trigger. While the front trigger can be operated as a standard trigger, if you press the rear trigger first, it will "set" the front trigger, requiring less than 1 lb of force. There is an adjustment screw in between the two triggers that seems to adjust the front trigger take-up.
Receiver is P stamped. Includes leather rifle sling. Sling has a rubberized backing.
C&R Eligible. Discreet import engraving.

The K31 was made by Eidgenossische Waffenfabrik Bern, a Swiss federal armory, and is one of the last carbines employed by the Swiss military that is based on the designs by Schmidt and Rubin.
