Default Swiss Rifles

I was going through Century's website and found they had several types of Schmidt-Rubin rifles. They had the 1896/11, the 1911 short rifle, and the K1911. They have several types of conditions. I don't know much about the Swiss rifles other than the K31. Can anyone tell me the difference? Thanks.

The K31 had the bolt shortened and has the magazine forward of the trigger guard as you know. The 1911 and earlier rifles had a much longer which is why the magazine is well forward of the K31's. They are fine shooting rifles and as accurate as the K31's. I own 3 1911 carbines 1 1911 rifle and 3 K31's and all are a joy to shoot. IIRC the K31 action is a bit stronger than the 1911's but also shoot GP 11 ammo.
