Moving slowly forwards on the rapid fire Mad Minute series, here's the first straight-pull rifle to be tested - a Swiss K31 in 7.5x55 GP11. It did surprisingly well - except the reloads, which bit spicy monkey chunks.

(BTW the bloke is not fanatical about the term "Schmidt-Rubin" being applied to the K31 - it's Furrer's modification of Vogelsang's modification of Schmidt's design, and Rubin only seems to get some credit due to the original ammunition. The official name is "Karabiner Modell 1931" anyway, so it's not like calling a No.4 an "SMLE" ;)
