Greetings,

I am new to the colecting of Swiss Rifles and have not been more impressed by the accuracy of my k31. I now have 2 k-31's a beech and a walnut. I just purchased a beautiful 1911 (hence the prior request for a sling) but I have a question regarding the name tags found under both K-31's. How do you decipher them? I can figure the name but what about the rest?

Here is one: Mort Ernst 27
Fus. Stabskp. 71
Maus ZH


Thanks for any help.

Rick

Great Info

Thanks Guisan,

Thank you for the great info. I love these Swiss rifles and look forward to collecting more. Next in line will be a K1911.

Well...

..some corrections there;

Wfm. = Waffenmechaniker = Armourer.
Sch. = Schwere = Heavy.
IV = 4
186 = Territorial Battalion number (based in the Canton of Zürich)

(and it's not a Swede K31 ;) )
