mount a scope on a K31? Not a scout scope, but with the tap and pin mount sold by Brownells.

I know, like everyone else, we can do whatever we want to our C&R's, but what are the negatives of permantly mounting a scope on these fine rifles.

The weapon just seems to accurate for me not to want to put a scope on and walk out to the 200 and 300 and 600 yard range we have here.

Maybe I should buy another, too keep for iron sights.

Just wanted to know your thoughts.

This is the same question I have had. I have been researching the K31 while I wait for my c&r and I have seen photos of a sniper version. Surely someone sales the scope mount and scope that the swiss used for this rifle.

Everyone raves about the clamp on mount not the drill and tap.

I believe Graf and Sons sells one.

I drilled and tapped a K-31, but with reservations.

For one, mine had a cracked stock, and little bluing. It was a beater. And, I also had 2 good examples that will always remain unmolested.

So, when I did the deed to the beater, I fully restored it and put a good scope on it, did some trigger work, bedding, etc. I'm not sorry - the gun is extremely accurate and fun to shoot with a scope, but I don't think I'd ruin a good condition gun with a permanent mount.

No worries; it sounds like you gave an old warhorse a new life. As long as something doesn't get Bubbafied it sounds good.
