If your going to talk that kind of craziness then why not mention the lever action which is faster than most manual operated weapons. Semi auto's are even faster lol

The straight bolt is still considered a bolt action whereas the lever action is exactly that a "lever-action" so in all fairness the K-31 is still in the bolt action class

The lever action has a "bolt" that is actuated by a lever. A semi auto and the k-31 have more in common than a bolt action. What I mean by that is that the bolt head rotates itself in its travel as opposed to a "bolt" action where you the shooter rotate the bolt yourself. We are talking semantics here really. The k-31 never saw battle so I don't know if I would consider it better than battle proven designs such as the smle or Mauser. Still a great gun though. Surplus ammo is pretty much match quality

Agreed I believe we should leave it to battle proven designs
