    Yeup... I think the real reason you inspect a service rifle is to make sure there is no mud or dirt pressed into the barrel. That could be really bad news.

    In my lab. In Canada.
    They teach us exactly that when we take our Canadian Firearms Licence classes. It is the last step in making sure a firearm is unloaded, examine the bore for obstructions. On a break open shotgun you can do it from the breech end, however on a semi auto, you need to look in from the muzzle, after you ensure the gun is unloaded and there is no round in the chamber.

    I don't think the bolt could be easier to remove than on the k31.

    I wonder if I start looking down the muzzle end of a handgun at the range with the action open how long it would take before I was asked to leave :big grin:

    People shoot themselves with unloaded guns all the time too. I just think its a bad habit to get into looking down the muzzle of a gun unless you have absolutely no other choice because one day someone won't open the action.

    at least there isnt a bayonet on the end. If im at the range I just point my pistol at someone else if I think there is something stuck in the barrel(I get extra range points)

    K31 crew :wavey:


    But when I check my barrel, I generally pop the bolt out and check it from the back :o

    for a civilian where you can reasonably disassemble your rifle, yes it's stupid.

    however, for a soldier in combat, there needs to be certain compromises made.

    Werd, it's only the easiest rifle in the world to take the bolt out of.

    :werd: Fuck, not only do you get the bolt handle to hold it with, but you can also use the safety/firing pin loop at the back.

    Ok... I'm gonna show my noob here, and just ask. Do you have a scope on yours? and if so how is it mounted? I was thinking of getting several firearms at once, and the K31 was on my list. but not without a scope.

    They make a few scope mounts for them. I only have one rifle with a scope on it, but that's because it doesn't have open sights. The mounts are offset to the right side, which I wouldn't go for. There is a least one scope mount that replaces the rear sight, but finding a decent long-eye-relief scope can be a challenge.

    The iron sights work so well IMO, a scope isn't really necessary.

    I haven't scoped one yet but if I did, I'd get the pierre st. marie mount.

    I've yet to get a looky loo from my FFL(a.k.a. Dad) I have done all of my shooting via scope so i'm not in any way shape or form familiar with open sights.
