Hi guys. New member, 1st post so I hope someone can help with some info.
Im in the process of purchasing a K31, its just a matter of finding the rifle that Im happy with. I have the option to purchase a rifle with serial number - P 268814.
From the info on swissrifles.com all it tells me is that it was made 'after Nov 1st 1952' and that it was ordered by KTA - Kriegstechnischen Abteilung des schweizerischen Militaerdepartements for KMV - Kriegsmaterialverwaltung. Which google tells me translates as "orded by War Technical Department of the Swiss Military departements for war materiel management" What exactly does this mean??
Can anyone provide any further information on this rifle or tell me what year it was made? And if so how and where to find this info?
Any help is greatly appreciated as the rifle is in great condition so it would be good to know a bit more about it before I made a decision.
Thanks in advance.
