Here is a picture of my Swiss rifles. No particular pattern to what I've purchased, just whatever's appealed to me.

Compare a U.S Krag bayonet and the Swiss 1889 and you can see where the inspiration for the Krag bayonet came from!

Hey Spiggy

That black ammo box looks familiar!

I see you haven't shot any of your ammo either.

2nd bottle is a 1 lb. cut of shellac. You can buy the bottle and the liquid shellac from http://www.homesteadfinishing.com

Swiss chocolate is used for inspiration; I eat it before, during and after.:D You can find it at Trader Joe's.

The color of the "AFTER" rifle is all natural beech with 7 super light coats of shellac over a course of an evening. I didn't add any stains or dyes. Shellac dries in 15 minutes. The stuff is wonderful to work with.

Here is a nice SIG Rifle that happens to not be a listed item in Roberti Roos or any other list.

There were about 15-20 of these that were imported into the US about the same time as the G series FN FAL'S they were also considered a Amnesty rifle.

I know what your thinking but If you have to ask how much you cant afford it.

While I don't have all the goodies the others have shown (although I do have a Mueller scope on a St. Marie mount, and St. Marie muzzle brake), and the picture may not be as nice, my K31 is one of my favorite mil-surp shooters.

Finally got myself a K31 (thanks Hopi!). She's a 1952 beech stock with a lot of nice character in the wood. I plan on refinishing the wood (shellac) and retouching the bluing eventually. I think the wood will turn out really pretty once I steam out some of the dings, bleach out some of the fossilized grease, and put a nice new finish of orange or dark shellac on her. A couple of gouges and two chips that would require work beyond my capabilities, but they're not too bad. Anyways, I am a happy man, and I would buy another gun from Hopi anyday. I highly recommend him as a seller.
Here she is right now:

The buttstock is in pretty good shape - not too much beaver chewing.

Tiger striping on a beech stock? First I've seen of it, but I like it!

I got one from hopi a while back. he's got some nice stuff... and looks like you lifted one of them!

enjoy it, horde GP11 while it's cheap, sportsmansguide dropped it from $40 to $30 again... one of the only surplus ammos that just seem to get cheaper
