I've shot a Lahti, not sure if it was a M40 or M35 as my friend has since sold it. I loved shooting it as the trigger was excellent, sights simple, quite heavy and overbuilt. Though it is the most accurate service pistol that I have ever fired. At 20m, I could not believe how that pistol was groupin...
Andre-Richard, trust me, both professrh and I will believe you! In fact, I went a step further. I picked up a stock made in Kentucky by Mickey McGuinness, specifically for the K31 which specifically centres the barrel in the barrel channel of the forestock and totally free-floats the barrel. From wh...
My scoped K31 likes 168 SMK/N 140/ 45.0. Here are some 5-shot groups at 100 m. http://i.imgur.com/AkU5qln.jpg http://i.imgur.com/D4Hy5E3.jpg And here's a closer look at the second last of these groups. http://i.imgur.com/aJuJUNC.jpg Very nice, my experience has been the same using Prvi Partizan box...
I hear you on the PIA for cleaning after corrosive ammo. Stick to 150 grain where possible. You can also get some stainless steel aftermarket gas system components.

Hey CB, cool pick up. I will be paying attention to your load development. This is one rifle I know nothing about other than its Swede heritage.
Wow, that's pretty awesome. For your knowledge, the main rifles from the Swiss Army that we tend to see in North America seem to be the K31 (short action). There are K11 (long actions, short rifle) and G1911 or 1896/11 (long action, long rifle).

Maybe sheepdawg can direct you, he's a Swede connaisseur on bolt action rifles and may know sources for what you seek.

vinegar is low concentration Acetic Acid ie 5%...I don't see the harm. I assume you are pulling bullets, dumping powder and not keeping the primer? This type of training ammo isn't available up here so I know others were buying it for the brass. These are Berdan primed cases?
