Was posting elsewhere on this site about a K-31 I got at the Crossroads gun show last weekend and started looking at the "shooter" I bought.

Removed the butt plate and this owner tag came out.

Looked on Swiss Rifles.com http://www.swissrifles.com/sr/tags/ and they had a good explanation of the info on the tags.

I wondered if anyone is compiling a database of these tags?

I've also read somewhere that the new owner and the original soldier contacted each other and exchanged stories.

Any info would be appreciated.

i contacted the former owner of my 51 k31 carbine. it took about 4 months for a return letter. i got pictures of him in the service and very recent pictures of him in his seventies. tjm22shot

The Swiss Rifles site had tons of information and a Swiss White pages search feature.

Since my guy was born in 1929 I don't know if he's still alive.
There are only 4 listings in his town and two of them are the same.

I plan on writing a letter to each and see what happens.

Thanks tjm & River for your assistance.
