No I never paid any attention. I shot it a few times but that is it.

I have some loaded around but it's all original G ammo.

Ugg, went and shot it today, I have moved the front sight to where it is part the way hanging out of the front sight post and it is still and inch or two to the right at 75-80 yards. Any ideas as to what is going on? I'm pretty aggrevated to be honest.

Is it grouping out there? Or is it all over the place. If it is all over the place (more than 2 inch groups) I would say that the barrel is worn out. I have seen it with used military guns before.

Well if you get a chance to post a pic or figure out what bullet he used, I would be very grateful. Obviously not high on your list right now. :thumb:

The groups are decent (for me behind the gun). The bore is mirror like and has sharp rifling.

most barrel wear occurs at the throat and no where else. Do it look like the rifling fades towards the chamber?

Using GP11, the sight is a little more reasonable. It is actually on paper now. Sorry for the zombie thread revival but I shot it again last weekend, and got a 1.1inch group at 100 with the GP11. It was only a three shot group, but for me behind the trigger I was bat shit happy and not about to ruin the group with another shot. I still cannot believe I shot that group with an open sight rifle. I cannot shoot like that with a scope most of the time! I guess the bullet weight is part of the reason the groups were so far off. I guess I will look for some Berger VLD 175gr and see about finding a "K31" sizer die because I feel like I am going to get a case stuck with this regular 7.5swiss die.

I am pretty stoked with this rifle. I have always wanted a nice iron sight plinker. (not a huge .22lr fan....)

Since my posts, I sold my K31 to a buddy of mine. He offered me 250 more than I paid for it and the ability to shoot it whenever we go out shooting. It was sitting around and getting neglected due to my custom bug that is in full force. I really didn't want to sell it but price and terms of sale were righter than rain, so I went with it. Still have the bayonet though. Forgot all about having it, and he doesn't want it because he bought one himself. Oh well, goes in the extras box alongside a bunch of scope rings, bottom metals, stocks, bbls, etc.

Want to sell it? I need a bayonet and a sling for mine.

Sure. It isn't in great shape. I think I paid over 100 for it, but it isn't worth that honestly, as it is missing the full frog. Most soldiers I guess tore it off and used a strip of leather instead, which this one has. How about $75 shipped?

Looks like this: http://www.jgsales.com/product_info.php ... ts_id/3445" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

In fact, you may be able to get it cheaper from that sight. Looks like they dropped their price recently. Not sure what shipping is for them.
