    Guys,

    It's been a few years since I've been back to the local gun shows, and at the time I wasn't looking at the military surplus selection. So, I'm drawing a big ole' blank on what the tables are displaying.

    I'm in the market for a Swiss K-31 and would prefer to buy locally if possible.

    How has been the selection of milsurp rifles at the Portland shows lately? Would it be worth my time to go?

    Most people think the Portland show is a waste of time, I don't entirely disagree. However I've seen a fair selection at the Portland show the last couple times I've gone. About a 6 months ago I picked up a Schmidt Rubin 1911, a guy had two century import k31's last portland show $400 each. The show with the most mil surps in my experience is the centrailia show.

    Well. I guess I'll just suck up the time Saturday morning and go check things out for myself.

    I've always been disappointed with milsurps at the gun shows, but I haven't been in the market for a while.
