VERY Nice SWISS M1911 Straight Pull BOLT ACTION 7.5mm C&R MILITARY Rifle
SWISS ARMY Rifle with BAYONET, SHEATH, & SLING
Here we present a C&R Swiss Model 1911 Straight Pull Bolt Action Military Rifle, made by Schmidt-Rubin circa 1911 in Switzerland. The Schmidt–Rubin rifles were a series of Swiss Army service rifles in use between 1889 and 1958. They are distinguished by the straight-pull bolt action invented by Rudolf Schmidt and use Eduard Rubin’s 7.5×55mm Schmidt–Rubin rifle cartridge.
An improvement over the original 1889 version of the Schmidt–Rubin rifle, the Swiss Model 1911 placed the locking lugs in the middle of the bolt, rather than at the rear, strengthening the action. It is distinguished from the 96/11 rifle by a curved buttplate and by a stock with an integral semi-pistol grip. It uses a graduated tangent sight which begins at 300 meters. The 1911 and 96/11 rifles are characterized by exceptional accuracy and were made with excellent craftsmanship. The fact that Switzerland remained neutral through both world wars ensured that they are in far better condition, on average, than the rifles of other European nations from that vintage.
The overall condition is very good. Original finish has been preserved. Robust action. The bore is bright. This example sports a solid stock with an average amount of handling/storage wear. Good bayonet. Markings are legible. Numbers on the barrel and receiver match. Good leather sling.
