I shot my 1946 era K31 today.

The walnut has the typical cleat marks, but mechanically the gun is very good.

Ammo was Privi 174gr FMJBT.

I shot off the bench, sandbagged at 100yrds.

My fouling shot was off the bull, I lowered my POA slightly and put five more into just under 2" on the sticker.
Happy camper.

The ammo is a little dirty, but decent shooting.

While I was at it, I shot my 9mm Sterling too, but at 50yrds.

Ammo was Win 9mm 124gr Nato spec FMJ. I shot off sandbags, which struck me as weird with a SMG.

I trimmed down the front sight a little, still need to skootch it over left a little. 'X' marks the POA I had to use at 50yrds.
I shot 15 rounds.

...soo, I guess I will trim down the front sight a bit more.:supergrin:

Cool rifle (carbine). Super high quality. If not for the rare ammo I would own one as well. As always good shooting :wavey:

A friend of mine had some ammo for the K31 out of the 30's.
All of them worked without a problem!
Great gun.

While on the subject of that k31:whistling: how hard is it to clean after shooting?

I was looking at some disassembly instructions of the bolt and they look like a Swiss watch

The K31 is a great shooting rifle. Its one I wish I had bought a few more of before they doubled in price.

You have to pay attention, and keep a manual handy the first few times you detail strip it, but for field maintenance all you need is a can of Rem Oil (and your normal bore cleaning tools.)

OP, where did you get a nice Walnut stock?

How often do you really find it necessary to clean a gun that thoroughly? The bolt doesn't suffer from too much fouling in such a gun.

The Walnut stock is what it came with, or it was restocked at some point before I came across it...I don't know. They went to walnut around the same time my gun was made.
The bolt is actually not difficult at all to remove or even detail strip.
Like Method said, it rarely needs more than an external wipedown at most.

They are amazing pieces of engineering. I too wish I had bought more of them. I just need to find more time to take mine out and go shooting some.

Wow, that range session was a step back in time with three old antiques :)

Mine shoots extremely well, though. I guess I should be happy with owning just one (especially considering how much prices have gone up on these.)
