Has anyone here either owned or built one of these fine Swiss rifles?
(The outsides of those mags are milled
Probably a lost cause, but I'm a sucker for the unique and interesting
. C'mon, it even has the K31 bolt handle
I'm a fan of the performance of the 7.5 Swiss round in my K31's, and pairing that
excellence with an over-produced HK-style roller delay action seems like a compelling combo. I saw there are parts kits out there, and supposedly a few folk are making receiver repair sections or flats, so a build is a possibility with the right BATFE info. I'm told the recievers are a sheet/trunion design that is rebuildable provided
that sheet metal repair sections are obtainable.
The receivers I'm seeing are PE57's, which were semi-auto, so the MG/NFA angle should
be a non-issue. 922r however...
looks like I'd have to be making some replacement parts (not the end
of the world, though).
I'm highly tempted; these guns were supposedly the most expensive service-rifle ever produced, are worth north of 5000$ completed here in the States, and the kits cost less than a run-of-the-mill CETME kit.
Anyone with experience with these? Are they worth all of the above? And
a bag of chips?
