Did you know that the Schmidt-Rubin K31 is not the Schmidt-Rubin K31 at all? It's true, and it's high time we get down to the bottom of this identity crisis!
The Schmidt-Rubin K31 is actually the Karabiner Model 1931, or for those who prefer brevity, the K31 carbine. Still, many people mistakenly refer to this rifle, noted for its straight-pull action, using the Schmidt-Rubin modifier. The reason? Rudolf Schmidt designed the straight-pull action for Switzerland's 1889 and 1896 rifles that is used in the K31 carbine, while Lt. Col. Eduard Rubin designed the 7.5x55mm Swiss cartridge that it fires. The rifle itself, however, was designed by Waffenfabrik Bern, a government-owned arms manufacturer located in Bern, Switzerland. How's that for a history lesson?
Nevertheless, when we decided to produce some magazines for the K31 carbine, we also made the decision to title it the Schmidt-Rubin K31 magazine. We figured it would help people find them, and here you are.
Manufactured from premium raw materials in a production facility that holds several foreign military contracts, the Keepshooting.com Schmidt-Rubin K31 magazine is designed to hold and feed six rounds of 7.5x55mm Swiss ammunition to any K31 carbine, including both the ZfK31/42 and the ZfK31/43.

More often than not, original, factory-produced magazines are better suited for firearms than are aftermarket magazines. As such, it is beneficial to seek out these original, factory-produced magazines, as they are manufactured by the same company and to the exact specifications and tolerances as those that ship with the firearms for which they are designed. Additionally, they are manufactured using the same materials, a provision which ensures both proper fit and function in your firearm. However, finding original factory-produced magazines for surplus firearms like the Karabiner Model 1931, or K31 carbine, that are still viable can sometimes prove both difficult and expensive. But when the alternative is a Keepshooting.com brand magazine, then you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
Each Keepshooting.com magazine, including our brand new Schmidt-Rubin K31 magazine, begins with a guarantee. Our goal prior to production is the manufacture of a magazine that is not only 100 percent functional, but also 100 percent reliable – a goal that took several years to reach with this particular magazine. As such, we guarantee the function and reliability of all of our house-brand magazines 100 percent. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the performance of your magazine, it can be returned for a refund of the purchase price provided it is free from modification, damage and visible signs of usage or wear.
How can we offer such a guarantee? Prior to release, a random sampling of every magazine we produce is rigorously field tested to ensure proper fitting, feeding and ejection. Not to mention, our magazines are manufactured using premium raw materials alongside modern manufacturing technologies. If this sounds expensive, that is because it is. But due to the number of magazines we have made, our prices are driven down and in turn passed on to you.
As noted, the Schmidt-Rubin K31 magazine is a detachable box magazine that boasts a familiar design based on the original military Karabiner Model 1931 magazine. As such, these magazines are guaranteed to fit and function reliably in any K31 carbine, including the ZfK31/42 and the ZfK31/43. The body of the magazine, which is designed to hold and feed six rounds of 7.5x55mm Swiss ammunition to your firearm, is constructed from hardened steel that has been fully heat treated. It also boasts a blued finish for enhanced protection against rust and corrosion. Additionally, both the steel spring and follower are precision manufactured to provide for reliable feeds on a consistent basis.
