Does the meme literally just extend from the fact that its a decent shooting rifle that is next to impossible to find ammo for?
Also K31/swiss bread.
7.5 Swiss isnt hard to find Jesus Christ.

Where do you live for the ammo to be hard to find?
I can get both GP11 (though somewhat expensive) and newly made PPU ammo for it here.
Fuck you I never called it a meme, but I did enable you faggots I guess.
Just waiting on that next shipment from Switzerland.
I live in Ohio, there was a vendor at a gunshow that had a case of GP11 but the last two shows Ive gone to I haven't seen him. PPU and Hornady is available, but on a college students budget its not exactly friendly on my wallet the way GP11 is.
Well, strictly speaking the 7.5x55mm cases can be reloaded with 7.62x51mm NATO bullets, so he's not entirely wrong.
It's an EXTRAORDINARY rifle OP. It's the best shit I've ever shot and fucking love it.
The liquidation auction looks fucking sweet, though. Let's hope some good shops get them.
>tfw managed to make contact with the original owner of my rifle
Feels good man, knowing the personal story behind your rifle. There's no other piece of milsurp where that opportunity exists.
What's a good price for the K31? There's one at my local Gander Mtn for $399, and there's a fun show in town the first week of March. Really considering buying one; it would be my first gun.
The only gunshow I could hit thay wasn't dildos was vegas, just so happened to be an antique gun show. Lots of old lever guns tables and tables of 6000 dollar lugers c96s p38 iverjohnsons. Tables of ornate flintlock pistols and long guns 15000 and up per peice. Shot guns. Not a single k31 in the whole place.
Get on ammo seek or gun deals, you faggot
How does the mag feed? Wouldn't do it myself but if I was able to find a wrecked receiver and a .308 barrel a neat project might be to make a scout rifle that feeds from maybe a modded G3 mag.
How was a small 6.5mm FMJ able to do so much damage?
It was rebarreled in 1944 and I'm pretty sure they also increased the headspace in the chamber. It's a Remington barrel.
I payed 180$ after haggling over it being an ugly sporter even though I was happy on the inside.
i have a crate of gp11 but no k31.
the cheap ones sold out here in canada and I'm trying to find one used rather than get fucked on one from a dealer. i got the case of gp11 for $355 syrupbucks though so that was a pretty decent deal
a site i frequent has k31 for 299, and im debating if i should get it or not...im kind of a poor fag though right now and the ammo seems to be expensive in my area/hard to find. should i just get a cheaper but decent shotgun instead for now??
Honestly I have such a hard on for K31s that I would say get the K31. I am more of a collector so I don't mind the absence of easy to find ammo.
If you are more of a practical man get the shotgun (but get the K31).
I plan to basically just have it desu...shoot it sometimes but more to have. Not owned a firearm in a while. How long i will be poor fag i dont know yet, job does not need me right now.
