    Did not take a great deal of deductive reasoning on my part. Familier with your products and glad to know they are still available.

    If you know how to remove the flash suppressor, take it to a machinist and have him open the tip of the suppressor by 20/1000ths. The result is amazing.
    Nice rifle....... goo shooting.

    K Swiss, not the shoes! - Album on Imgur

    Congratulations. On one day I bought 3 Swiss rifles. Two of them are the Holy Grail guns of Swiss collecting. I had no idea really what I was buying. How's that for luck?
    What are guys paying for these these days? You would kill me to know what I paid for them.
    It was a surreal day as I found my Father dead shortly after the purchase.

    "These days" are well past "my days". I don't have any k11's or k31's that didn't come directly from Switzerlandicon. No dealers in the middle. Last group was some time ago for $169 each.
    First one was a G11 long rifle in 1959 for $12.50 from a hardware store for the rifle and one box of ammo. Truly a lifetime ago now.
    *sigh*

    That muzzle gizmo on the ZfK-55 is a beauty.

    I only got to fire a few rounds out of one a few years ago, and it was an enlightening experience..

    Still loud but a weird "diffused" loud. Definitely soaks up recoil and flash.

    That bipod does not quite look right.

    When a collection of Swissicon goodies came up for sale, I could only afford a very nice K-11, the 55 was just too much for the piggy-bank to handle.

    I suspect the designers had taken a close look at the "muzzle device" on the Germanicon FG-42.

    Got our domain name back this morning. Took those suckers long enough. A solid week with no orders, and the bad part is all of our customers in EU were thinking we were gone or quit manufacturing.
    Na ja......... "Diogenes sass in Seinem Fass", usw...........
