Mq/K 31 bayonet. In the gun world, there are two kind of people. Those wanting more laser, those wanting more leather.

This one is mine. The rifles cost about $300 here in the United States and the diopters are about the same price.

Nice mousqueton (and very nice picture, too) ! Was the owner’s label still under the buttplate when you got it ?

I’d like to compliment you for being the first American providing a picture of a Mq 31 with the safety ring in the correct position ;o)

On another topic, since I’m accidentally posting a lot of firearm-related content today, I’d like to announce I’ll get my new gun tomorrow. Can you guess what it will be* ?

*not a mousqueton

If, like for me, squarish plastic guns are boring you… if you’re into rounded triggerguards… if you’re into wood parts and blued steel… repeat after me: “real guns are curvy!”

It’s a very important message. Please reblog. #dontbeasquare

You can easily spot a non-Swiss picture of a Mq31/K31 by the position of its safety.

It’s really something that is bugging me. 

Do americans not put the safety in the right spot or something?

Most pictures you’ll see of a Mq/K 31 outside Switzerland will have the safety off (the ring in vertical position), when here it’s bad form to switch it off when not ready to fire (so, normally, when you’re shouldering the gun). It’s not something that awful, it’s just disturbing.
