>Shit ton of K98 threads
>Never a thread about Swiss milsurp rifles
Why does /k/ hate Swiss milsurp when these are one of the best price/quality rifles you can currently buy?
The K31 I own is all beat up and ugly. I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite rifles to shoot. Big boom and accurate as hell. Since most of the other gun owners I hang out with are fudds also, I get to showcase the rifle every time I go shooting with them. Every single time I show them the straight pull bolt they get all nervous and say something along the lines of "there's no way that is safe." While hunting with rusted .303s and barely working pump actions.
>Why does /k/ hate Swiss milsurp
You fucking what?
Mostly because this board is filled with teenagers who haven't even bought their first rifle yet. They don't even know the K31 exists yet. By the time they do, they'll be out of "collecting C&R rifles" (read: buying a nugget as their first gun) and either lose interest in firearms or start throwing money at AR parts.
Nah, k31 itself is cheap. Reason why these guns aren't talked about is because ammo is hard to get and is not cheap over here. Maybe make threads about them if ammo is cheap in your country?
Nahhh, we don't wanna hear about 'em.
Here is also a Sig 550.
But seriousely its like saying any Ar-15 is an M16.
Here's my existing swiss and I'm working on a PE57 next. Would love to also add an M75 and a PE90 to the collection, but $$$. Also want an M93 carbine, a Kadet, some of the revolvers and maybe eventually a luger, and to get into the Vitterlis.
Love my swiss handgun, it was pretty pricey tho..
>tfw no longgun yet
Thinking about removing the magwell
I don't know if i want to change grips i need to order them special.
and i kinda want wood grips.
My first swiss rifle.
Schmidt-Rubin K31 dated 1947 with the slightly lighter beech stock.
When in service used by Nachrichtendienst Soldat Fritz Kocher (1928), Wald Zurich.
My second swiss weapon, a pistol.
Sphinx 2000 AS (which means it's DA/SA). Very nice.
A CZ75 with various changes, such as the different locking system.
>not a Schmidt Rubin dummy
Let's not nitpick. You're absolutely right. As of the 1911 model, it's no longer an S-R technically. But people still call them that, regardless.
But moving on:
SAN SwissArms SG551SB
Lovely little rifle with a 14.3" barrel.
My favorite swiss (together with my Sig X-Five, which isn't really swiss, I guess, though its heritage is).
Speaking of Swiss rifles, how are the sig 556 swat classic models? I own a gorillon handguns but the only rifles I own currently are my Yugo Mauser and k31.
From what I read so far lots of people are complaining about the pencil barrels and weight. Anyone have any experience with them? Would it be better to buy it than an Ar or an arsenal ak?
No giggle switch on mine, sadly.
Noted. Now shut up and stop shitting up this thread.
>How much did it cost ya?
350 euros, all accessories included (stuff like the original issue belt, new modern production belt, muzzle cap, bayo & scabbard etc).
Normal price for Belgium at the time.
>shit ton of threads about weapon systems that have more than a single variant
The AR / AKs has endless customization options, Mausers and Mosins have been widely produced in many countries with lots of variants. I don't see much coming from the Swisssurp side other than K31's, nobody is stopping you from starting a K31 thread like you did.
I would love to have a 2000 or try one.
Real answer? Because they're not as famous and more expensive than nuggets and k98. I've heard they're great guns but they're not first on most people's list to buy. Usually people who get them already have a few other mil surp rifles.
Better is a relative term. I'm the US, there is an AR-15 glut, making the AR the most cost effective semiautomatic rifle on the market today. The price to quality ratio is unmatched. But if that's not what you want, it's not what you want.
How the fuck is surplus gp11 easier to find in Canada than in the states?
I bought a crate of 480 for $355 syrup bucks. Not a great price but better than $1/round or more for anything non surplus
