I was thinking of getting another K31 and scoping it, anyone tried it or looked into it?

Haven't done it either, but this scout mount has caught my interest. Darrell's Scout Mount

I've got one of those on my K31 with a 2x20 NcStar Pistol scope. It works well.

I've scoped mine.

St. Marie's Graphics (Pierre from the Swiss Rifles Forums) makes an excellent set of mounts, both clamp on (right eye-offset) and drill and tap (left eye offset). Brownells carries both.

I don't like long eye relief scopes much, myself so the receiver mount appealled to me.

I restored a very beat up and mismatched early pre-68 import K-31 and decided to use the drill and tap mount on mine. Normally I don't alter my C&R guns, but this one was really sad and I have good matching examples too so I thought what the hell. The mount goes on the right side of the reciever, and still allows clean ejection and stripper loading. It offsets to the left, like a GarandD, which takes some getting used to but it's actually very instinctive once you get used to it.

I mounted a Meiji 9x32 euro sniper scope on it, and have tuned the trigger a bit but otherwise the rifle is as stock. Even so, with handloads it'll shoot sub MOA with ease and with GP-11 you can hit clays at 100 yards until you're sick of busting them. Very nice setup.

The clamp on mount he sells is a right-eye offset, and is probably better for most people but it's also more expensive and that's alot of why I didn't go for it.

Here's pics of the mount:

I have the St. Maries clamp-on and I love it. Great quality and you can finally take advantage of the K31's accuracy.

Your setup looks great there. If that rifle is supposed to be a beater, mine must really be sad.

Methinks it got a makeover.

I have one of Darrel's mounts for an M38, and I like it. I have one of his K31 scout mounts on the way. I'll post a range report when I get a chance to try it.

Buy more ammo,

Very much so. New stock, new mag, total metal refinish.

The only good part was the bore.
