    All I have is a point-and-shoot digital camera, all the rest came out like trash. Tiny lense FTL.

    I got it for $189.

    I plan on working on the stock, the wood under the butt plate looks alright. I think it needs to be stripped, sanded, etc. The blueing is pretty good on it, there are a few little scratches in it up by the front sight post. The bore is immaculate, other than some light deposits that could be cleaned out in a few minutes. It should shoot pretty well. All the numbers match, even the magazine. I picked up 3 10 round boxes of GP11, and a charger clip.

    It's a '49 BTW.

    Looks nice, I think 49 was before the switch to beech too so I'd say its even a good deal. Not even a bad looking stock.

    Don't sand, take it off with citristrip, you can get it at home depot, Makes the house smell like oranges, and it takes ALL the stain and finish off without taking any wood off. I liek using it so I don't lose any wood and mess up any cartouches, you'll love it if you try it.

    The story is even better with the stock off, this thing is in wonderful condition. The Swiss put tape on the barrel so the handguard and stock stay tight...

    There is no reason to use stripper on a k31 either, they were just sealed with shellac, denatured alcohol is all you need.

    I took the bolt apart, and oiled everything. Does anyone have a preference as to what oil they use? I used a pretty hefty-slimy oil. Someone had mentioned rifle grease, and that was the closest thing I had.

    The swiss did use a grease originally and I figure for as good a condition as they're in, they had to know what they were doing :big grin:

    get a tin of USGI grease ASAP. Everyone I asked about what lube to use said that the swiss used grease, and that USGI was the best option. and +1 to Soybomb, if the swiss say to use grease, I'm using grease.
