I prefer the original schmidt rubin action on the 96/11, G11, and K11. However, the K31 has a better trigger. The 1911 pattern guns still have good triggers though.

Sights on the K31 are also a little better for most common shooting distances.

generally bores are going to be good to excellent. Stocks will often be mangled pretty badly. Pass on anything with visible rust

surplus GP11 is 50-60 cpr. New manufacture PPU is 60-70 cpr when it is in stock.

The demand for K31s and other Swiss rifles have exploded since 2014 in the states. Most vendors will try to sell for what >>34579862 said, but I'm sure you can find them for good deals if you keep looking

I've been buying GP11 from Midway when they have a sale at less than $0.50 a round and that sale occurs pretty frequently

LGS has a Longbranch No4 that's afaik matching and extremely clean, but with a very dark stock. The price is $499 but it's not really negotiable since it's on consignment by a customer to pay off another gun. I'm extremely tempted because NA Enfield, but the price is a bit much. Wat do?

Ok.

Another lgs has an 03A3 for $500 problem is it needs a follower, magazine spring and an end cap for the handguard. The bolt is smooth and it looks to be in good shape, but the stock has few or no markings and the bore is dark but serviceable. Would it be worth it to buy the replacement parts for it and buy it as is, or try and talk him down a bit? I didn't give it a very thorough inspection last time I was in tje store and would have to reevaluate it before putting any money on it

I'm not sure honestly. I just know the no1 mk3* and the basic no4.
>>
>>34580139
450ish.
>>
>>34580833

The three variants you're going to see by far the most of ar the No. 1 Mk III, the No. 4 Mk 1 and the No. 5 Mk 1.

The No. 1 dates through WW1 to the beginning of WW2 (later in places like Australia that didn't switch to No. 4s.

The No. 4 started in early WW2 and continued through the war.

The No. 5 is a carbine variant made in relatively small numbers.

The No. 1 looks the best (you can disagree, but that just means you're wrong) and it has the blunt nosecap. The No. 4 looks more "normal" with the barrel protruding and the carbine usually has a flash hider.

I mean at this point it's not significantly more expensive than a nugget and looks better, feels nicer in my hands, and isn't as heavy.
Is 250 a fair price? What little I've seen online about them says they're cheap but doesn't give an idea of what prices to expect.
I know this one's cheaper than any of the M48s I've seen in person, and is in better shape while also having a nicer ,thinner stock.

If the barrel is smooth as in not pitted and not smooth as in smoothbore then that's a good price. $300 is common.

Do the numbers match? If it was Tokyo Arsenal it would be matched by an assembly number rather than the serial number. The bolt body, cocking piece, extractor, dust cover, rear sight elevator, floorplate and bayonet lug are the only places it can be seen without taking the rifle apart. Check to see if they match each other; chances are if they do then they match the receiver number too.

My rifle's bolt doesn't match, but the bayonet lug and sight number do, as does the stock and handguard.

Put a Pacyhmeyer recoil pad on it if you want to extend LoP. I don't know what to say lad, I think it's just you. My K31 was dead-on at 100m and I getting ~1in groups from a benchrest.

Let me put it differently:

Learning the fundamentals and becoming skilled at all with shooting, by starting off with milsurp, is like learning to throw a basketball by starting at the three point line.

You'd be playing on hard mode, not to mention using expensive ammo AND using a rifle that may not group well anyway. A decent .22LR will group well, and will be an awesome confidence builder.

DO NOT start with milsurp as your first rifle to learn to shoot with, unless you never plan to shoot all that well.
>>
>>34587364
Milsurp rifles usually heavy poor ergos, bad triggers, shitty sights, and a good amount of recoil. That's not something a new shooter should be struggling against when learning basic marksmanship. Start with a good 22 and go from there.

I saw an Argentine Mauser for 260.
The barrel and receiver were parkerized, I think, and the stock had been cut down.
The crest was also missing.
Could I have done something about it?

Not arguing that it's not. Just pointing out you shoot a basketball, not throw one.
>>
>all these fags dick riding the K31
Buy that gp11 while you can cuz when it's gone you're gunna be crying.

7th gun of the month or 7th gun ever?
>>34588090
Jokes on you, I only shoot handloads.
>>
Now, which is cheaper 7.5x55mm or 8x56mm?
>>
>>34588147
7th gun ever, all purchased within this month. >>34588147
>>
>>34588155
7.5. It can be reloaded cheaper, too, with more bullet options since it's a .308 bullet.
>>
>>34588159
As long as you aren't neglecting your bills and you store them responsibly, you're okay.
>>
>>34588356
Bordering on neglecting bills, just barely.
>>
>>34587572
The 10/22 is more inexpensive. The trainers are usually collector's items if they've gotten out of service.
>>
>>34588140
>>34588147
Highly doubt those who reload are the ones suddenly all hot and bothered over K31s.

What would you consider "good sights"? I quite like the notch and post
>>
>>34583115
Tula isn't corrosive is it? At least the box says it isn't
>>
>>34588562
The box I have said it was not corrosive, but then again it also said it was "hunting ammunition", which it clearly is not. Also the cases are rough non-lubed or waxed steel, which just stick in all of the receivers I've tried it in.
>>
>>34586295
that's really fucked up and I honestly feel for you, but the mental image is making me laugh like an idiot
>>
>>34588610
Don't feel too bad. >>34586091 was correct
>>
>>34588601
The only "Hunting ammo" boxes that I've seen are the Winchester 54r soft-points.
>>
>>34588625
well, not about the melanin...
>>
>>34588544
Aperture sights. Of course those can be found on milsurps too, but they are less common. And the other criticisms still apply.

This is the stuff I've been having issues with. The Tula is hidden away on the back of the box.

Picked it up on discount at a LGS. Would not recommend.
>>
>>34588694
Aperture sights are shit. Can't see a damn thing with them.
>>
>>34588757
Objectively (pun intended) wrong senpai.
>>
>>34588769
Can't be wrong when they're shit and I can't see through them. You can't tell me that I can see through something that I can't see through and be correct.
>>
>>34588792
Do you save problems with astigmatism?

>>34588702
The only box of 54r that I've ever seen that claimed to be a "Hunting round" was Winchester made, as I said.
https://www.ammunitiondepot.com/1118-winchester-7-62x54r-180-grain-sp.html
(What I saw was ~200 grain I thought, but whatever.)
>>
>>34588757
That sounds like a personal problem chief.
>>
>>34588830
>https://www.ammunitiondepot.com/1118-winchester-7-62x54r-180-grain-sp.html
At that price point, I'd probably just buy PPU soft points. Realistically, that's what I intended to do anyway, since I also need to pick up some 8mm PPU.

These local grabs were just a holdover.
>>
>>34588814
No, but I am near-sighted. I can see just fine with my Mosin and other open-sights, but I can't see shit for dick through any aperture sight that I've ever looked through. Not an M-14, not an M-16/AR-15, not an M1 Garand, not any other number of aperture sighted rifles and carbines that I've ever looked through. If I look through the sight, I can't see the target. If I look at the target, I can't see the sight well enough to line them up. (No, I don't close one eye while aiming.)

I found 990 Yugoslav milserp for ~300$ a few days ago. It said that there were five crates left. I decided to save a bit before buying: All of it was gone the next day.
>>
>>34588923
I have 180 rounds of mild steel core hungarian surplus, that actually came with one of my guns (not my hungarian gun though). I wrapped it all in cellophane and am just waiting to sell it off honestly. The bores on my 54r guns have seen enough corrosive stuff, no need to punish them further.

Leave it slathered with grease for a week and see what comes off.

For fucks sake why do people try to snipe on GunBroker if the timer resets to 15 mins every time. Just wasting time because I'll outbid them within seconds of them outbidding me.
>>
>>34585550
I only use GP11 because it's actually cheaper for me in bulk. PPU shouldn't be giving you 3 MOA regardless. It could be your fundamentals that are off?

Excellent condition with near-mint bore. No import marks either. This ain't too bad, is it boys?

>>34590314
Damn, I only bid past 600 because an anon here said a near flawless No.4 said they were worth more than 650. Welp, I don't feel terrible about it since I wanted a good one anyway. That scratches Lee Enfield off my to-buy list.

>>34589721
I'll give it a shot, rust seems really deep down in there so hopefully it will penetrate pretty deep
Receiver and barrel still have rust hard stuck on them, outside and inside, still don't really know how to deal with those. Probably keep scrubbing with wool for a few days

Daily reminder that the greatest leader of the 20th Century carried a Carcano not a K31, Mauser, Enfield, Lebel, Springfield, Mannlicher or Berthier. Therefore the Carcano is the best bolt action Milsurp.

That's a really fuckin nice No.4

Are you looking to sell a Yugo K98k?

>>34587388

Tula? No. The USSR made 283,451 though.
>>
Did they change the process for getting a c&r license? The guide I have is apparently out of date
>>
>>34591985
Thanks. I was wondering because mine is ~#21,500 from Tula for the year.
