LPR Gunsmithing has started to perform a number of special services
on Schmidt Rubin K31 Rifles. We are also selling semi-finished, semi-inletted target stocks for the K31. Below is a basic description of these services, prices, and a few pictures of rifles and stocks that we have built. We hope that this page will help you understand the work we perform on these rifles. If you have any questions please contact us by email or phone.
 
     
 
Rebarreled Swiss K31 Rifles
 
 
The links below contain pictures of two K31s rebarreled by LPR
 
   
   
     
 
Barrel Work
 

 
Because of the complex angles and cuts at the breech end of the K31 barrel, a bushing must be made from the old barrel in order to fit the new barrel. This adds an additional cost to the initial rebarreling of the rifle. This is a one-time cost and does not have to be repeated for any subsequent rebarreling.
 
 
   
Prices
    Convert original barrel to accept replacement barrel $135.00
    Install Customer's Barrel $300.00
 
All barrels must have minimum breech diameter of 1.100” and have a straight
section 2.500 long or longer at the breech end to be used as a replacement barrel.
 
 
In House Barrels:
  Krieger Stainless (28" or less) $630.00
      Douglas Chrome Moly (26" of less) $455.00
     

Barrels by other manufacturers (Does not include cost of barrel)

  Blue chrom-moly barrel $45.00

See Price Guide for cost of upgrades to above barrels.
     
 
Cartridge Selection
 
 

Cartridges with a 308 Winchester diameter (0.475”) base work well in the K31. We have used 308 Winchester, or its variants, and they feed, extract, and eject correctly in the K31. When using these cases we suggest a small base full length sizing die to ease extraction. 284 Winchester or 30-284 using 7.5 Swiss brass are a good choice as well.

 
     
 

Stocks

 

 

We are temporarily not setup for stocks at this time and will post notice when running again.
Semi-finished, semi-inletted target stocks are available in walnut, cherry and beech. Each stock is made from hand-selected wood by Doug Bellows of Vermont. Because these stocks are semi-finished, semi-inletted they require final finishing, inletting, and bedding by the owner. This makes them a good choice for do-it-yourselfers.

Sights and Sight Bases
 

 
LPR manufactures RPA and Redfield type sight bases for the K31. Sights with extra windage such as the RPA Trakker are recommended for use on these rifles. Redfield type sights can be used but leave little windage adjustment on the right side.

LPR have a limited supply of converted Parker Hale PH5A receiver sights available with Sure-X type aperture. These sights have plenty of windage and are a good sight for the K31 for a reasonable price.

 
     
 
 
RPA or Redfield receiver sight base for K31: $49.00  
      RPA base will except PH5A sight listed below    
   
    Parker Hale PH5A sight; polished, re-blued and refitted: $250.00  
    Parker Hale PH5A sight, refitted but not polished and re-blued: $195.00
