Well yesterday I was able to pick up my newest edition, a Swiss K-31 that was built in 1953. No I haven't given up on my Mosin collection. I thought I'd just add a little diversity to the rifle safe. The bore is absolutely pristine and the rest of the rifle is in excellent condition. It even has an original leather sling. I'm going through the rifle this week getting it all ready for fall. There are a few bluing spots I'm going to touch up on it.

Be careful, they grow like rabbits, 160 rifles later (2 and 3 copies of some models) you wonder why you made some of the purchases.

Well I've been keeping this quite for a while, but I'm about to introduce a new firing pin spring for the Swiss K31 that improves it's bolt performance dramatically. I wasn't really happy with the cocking on the rifle, so I used mu rifle as the Ginnie Pig. It's going to be distributed through Rock Solid Industries. They should be ready to ship by next month the latest. I've also got a few other tricks up my sleeve for this one.

See what you started I'll soon own a second K31..

Hmmm if I crossed a Mosin with a Swiss K31 would I get a Swiss Moca??
