Shortly after I got the K31 I decided it needed cleaning, I started by stripping the rifle down and pulling all metal off of the stock. I then sprayed it down a total of 4-5 times with Simple Green letting is set in a bit before wiping it down.
Here was before I started
Hard to tell it improved but here is the finished product
Took the K31 out yesterday shooting GP11 match grade surplus ammunition. It is fairly accurate at 50 yds and decent at 100 yds but I think I will be scoping this to explore it's capabilities.
For those whom wonder what the troop tag is all about this is what hides under some K31 buttplates, it corresponds with the serial numbers of the rifle and the owners name, home city, and his job in the military. Mine was Hans Leuthold whom was born in 1927 and served in the 3rd mounted transport and was from Strata I'm assuming is a nearby city of Turren.
