These are nice rifles. Perhaps they deserve a new thread. Until recently resurrected, this one was put to rest five years ago.

Instead of 4 pages of great info we would have 3 posts, or perhaps none.

Has something changed that would warrant that? The rifles are 50-60 years old?

What am I missing?...Tom

Sorry for offending your sensibilities. It wasn't my intention. I thought that five years of dormancy spoke for itself, no matter how old the rifles.

While most of the posts are very pedestrian, there is some treasure buried in the thread. In addition to the pictures, here's one of the most salient posts with great info:

and since I'm posting this, here is my example of the fine Walther KKM International Match rifle, together with associated accessories:

Here's more, with a great question and answer.

Hello all. Spoke with Eric at Possum Hollow about the KKM rod guides eariler today. Found out he is due to make a production run in the next few days. Anyone interested can contact him directly at 321-338-7757. Hope this helps. Also, if anyone knows a trusted source for KKM action screw torque specs please post.

Just checked my Walther owner's manual and no mention is made of action screw torquing or specs. Completely unscientific but I have just tightened them until pressure is felt and the screws are snug. The newest KK series may be different.

I have a KKM UIT and the screw you refered to is actually a set button for the trigger.Twist slightly and push in and twist till it catches and my trigger pull is 2 pounds.twist till button pops back out and my pull is 4 ounces.There is a tiny screw in the end of the button that adjusts the set trigger pull from about 2 to 10 ounces on mine.Finest trigger I have used and a great rifle.Hope this helps there is not much info out there.

I've recently been finding how to get the best out of it with the trigger set, re-crowning, Tuner and new scope. The trigger is exceptional and finding the Weaver T36 a good choice and will ensure more consistent improved accurate shooting.

The number 61 stamped on the left side of the barrel in the third of the pics reflect the build date of 1961.

doodle2229 is absolutely correct.

This provides some long needed clarity for a question asked by Oldblades over five years ago. An answer to the question given by kaynine five years ago appears to misidentify the screw that Oldblades asked about.

In my post above I said that the answer given in by kaynine the post following the question was "great info". Clearly I was wrong. Had I been reading more carefully I should have seen that it was a different screw in question. Thanks to doodle2229, a mistake that went uncorrected for five years was put right. As it turns out there was value in resurrecting an old thread.

The "long screw in front of the trigger guard" is the set stud, which is found on some KKM models and all KKJ-T rifles (shown below).

Trigger maintenance

I have just acquired one of these rifles. I need to give it a good clean before using as bench rest gun.
Can anyone please post copy of owners manual or other instructions on cleaning trigger assembly.
Any help would be appreciated.
Best wishes to all members,
Terry
