Resp'y,

Couldn't agree more Bob. I like the 1911's longer sight radius and the way it seems to "hang" in offhand due to its longer length.

They can indeed be fired by lefty's.
Check out the video of Rick Crawford firing the swiss at Camp Perry.
He could flat shoot!
Rick has since passed on.

That is the video that inspired me to shoot it in a match!

Rick is the man....I was really disappointed when I found out he passed. RIP.

I love the Swiss rifles too. As already mentioned, the 1911 long rifle shoots better than the K31. Here are few pics of my twin 1911 and a K11. Then one of my K31 with aperture sights next to my SA 1903.

I also like the K31. As a "firearms historian" the thing I like the most is the fact that many (if not most) K31s still have a slip in the butt under the buttplate with the name of the person the rifle was last issued to (see picture below).

If you want to read a good book with some "historical background", get a copy of "Target Switzerland" by Stephan Holbrook.

(Yes, I have a K31!)

Love those rifles, Juanito.

What kind of cheek rest is on your K-31?

Thanks!

Bought the elcheapo cheek rest from Brownell's. Despite the elcheapo price, it is surprisingly of good quality material and workmanship.

Nice rifles! I have a pair of K31's myself including a beech-stocked 1948 example that has a Swiss Products diopter which resembles the one Juanito has on his K31. The other is a walnut-stock 1942 K31 with a St. Marie scope mount and a Weaver K4-1 scope. Of the two, I like the scoped version MUCH better, and it's the most accurate rifle I own. The diopter I'm not too thrilled about - I think the FSR diopters on the Swedish M96's that I own are better and more usable. My two cents worth.
