This firearm is a 75 year anniversary commemorative made for the Association suisse des armuriers (The Swiss Armorer's Association) and was made available only to the members. There are less than 400 of these rifles produced. The Swiss Armorer's Association is an organization that operates as a guild for gunsmiths and armorers, as well as political action like the American NSSF.
The Karabiner Model 1931 (K31) is a magazine fed, straight pull, bolt action rifle chambered in 7.5x55mm Swiss Gewehrpatrone 1911 (GP11) that was the standard issue rifle of the Swiss Armed Forces from 1933 through 1958. 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.
