No danger in converting a K31- that action is as strong as any you will find- but why? IMHO, the 7.5 Swiss is a better LOOONG range round than the 7.62x54R.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

The only reason I would even consider it is because of the cheap availability of the x54r.

The M95 Steyr Mannlicher Rifle is a strait pull bolt action. It also uses a cool em block clip (similar to a M1 Garand, but ejects out the bottom). The ammo isn't exactly what you would call cheap though. It not really easy to find either (8x56R). You can find the gun itself for about $110. Classic arms usually has them, but they're out right now.

Your best bet would be going with the K31 though.

I had a garand that i shot so much cheap ammo one day the gas port plugged. So it became a straight pull bolt gun.
