Default Swedish K31 info

I've been very interested in these for quite a while. Can anyone point me towards more information, like a site similar to 7.61x54r.net? Maybe give me some reviews based on personal experiences, some info on good reliable ammo sources, stories, general opinions? I'm looking at quality, accuracy, and collectability, in that order.

I just want to absorb the info that I can, much like I did with the MN 91/30 before I finally went out and got one.

One of the things I just find so curious is the straight pull bolt. I know this isn't unheard of, and I've even had the opportunity to fire a Blaser with a straight pull bolt, thought it was very sweet.

I'd love to pick one of these up. I've also heard that they are among the most accurate of all milsurps.

Give me some opinions and info please!

The round has a very good ballistic coefficient, meaning that it holds up quite well at long range. Very well made rifles, easy to scope with the right mount. Made to sit on top of a mountain, shoot someone on next mountain. Swiss Milsurp ammo is marvelous. Get it while you can. Non-corrosive, just about match grade. Stocks will usually look like they belonged to a reservist that stood around with the butt in snow (because they did) Got the bayonet, sling, tool kit, muzzle cap and stripper clips for mine. Straight pull bolt is FAST- slap slap.

C3 covered it all.They are very accurate with the mil-surp ammo. I got mine from Aim back in 2006-walnut stock for $99.95. They keep going up in price so get one asap. Best regards

Another one of the straight pull action rifles was the:
STEYR M95 CARBINE 8X56R.. They kick like a mule and can "only" be loaded by stripper clips but another unique rifle to look at adding to your collection..

How much does one of those run? I've looked at some offerings of steyr's and most of them I couldn't afford in my wildest dreams.

The Steyr is a WWI vintage rifle/Carbine. The problem is finding ammo, or cheap ammo. They use an en-blok clip. They were originally chambered in 8x50r but were later rechambered for 8x56r. The sights are set for arshins, not yards or meters. Neat guns. They are fairly cheap because ammo is hard to find now. Hornady has a run of ammo yearly.

You can get a nice Steyr for around 200 bucks & Midway has ammo on the shelf for about 25 dollars, so there is 2 reasons to go get you one if really want one.
