Brutus' Description

The Swiss at some point realized that its support troops, cavalry, and certain other units required a shorter rifle then what was currently available and so designed the Model 1911 Carbine. The Swiss 1911 Carbine being smaller, lighter and still lethally accurate, became a favorite of the Swiss Army and its popularity contributed to the design of its successor, the K31. My picture is not great but these are really nice. They are also the last variation with the flatter mag plate which bench shooters tend to perfer, as well as the grooved Schmidt Rubin design bolt, and bakelite charging handle. 7.5x55 caliber, Straight Pull.

Good to Very Good condition. Most have leather slings but cannot guarantee you will receive a sling... Probably an 80% chance.

Review by Rich on 4/22/14

I'm new to military surplus. This was only my second purchase. The first was a Mosin Nagant I got from my FFL six months ago. I was able to really give it the once over using a checklist based on a ton of Youtube videos. I was really hesitant about ordering on line.

I took the plunge (I paid the extra $20) and am glad I did. I received a confirmation email with a tracking number so I could keep tabs on the progress. I even received an email from Classic the day it hit my FFL. The carbine was delivered in seven days. The packageing was good - I had to hold the box while my FFL guy pulled overcome the bubblewrap.

The first thing I checked was the serial number - mine was built in 1917. Everything else looked good at the store.

When I got home, I showed the carbine to my father (who had never heard of this rifle) - he was very impressed with the metal work on the bolt (he used to work in a machine shop).

I stripped the whole thing down and cleaned the wood with Old English oil. The stock is well used with small dents all over the place. There are NO cracks or major dents that would make me want to refinish the stock - it is functionally perfect. This is milsurp - if minor dents make your eyes cross than buy a new rifle. The cutouts for the metal parts are very sharp and accurate - not like my mosin, which looks like it was carved out with a teaspoon.

There was NO corrosion anywhere, with one minor exception. To the rear of the rear sight, there are two copper rivits. These hold a spring steel clamp which attaches to the top of the barrel. There was some green on the barrel side of these rivets. A very little green was on the barrel. This all wiped off with no damage. I'll worry about this in another 97 years. NOTE - when removing the top handguard, do not just yank it off - remove it gently to overcome the clamp!

Blueing was pretty good - and mostly there (not the buttplate - it had no blueing). For me, it does not need any touchup.

The barrel was amazing - when my father (a retired cop) looked at it with a borelight and said it looked like it had never been fired.

I took apart the bolt and it look almost new. A testement to how the Swiss keep their stuff.

Mine came with a sling - it is in very good condition - no cracks or tears. It is really dirty, though. I plan to attack it with some saddle soap.

All in all, this was nice. My plan is to have a little collection of different bolt actions. My next one will be a Mauser, and that (since I'm retired) will be it...perhaps...maybe...I wonder if Classic will be getting any more K-31's in?
Beautiful Rifle

This has the real Schmidt-Rubin straight pull action. Arrived at my dealer clean and in good condition. I haven't any Swiss ammo yet, but will soon get out to shoot it. Nice historic gun.
OK to Good Rifle
Review by WindySidney on 4/2/14

Received a 1917 rifle. It has about 30% blue, or less, but bore is shiny and lands are sharp. Stock is rough, finish on the stock is non-existing with dozens of small dings and a couple of large gouges. It came with a leather sling. Butt plate has no blue on it, does have a service tag under the plate which is cool. I chose the hand pick option, don't think I will pay the extra in the future for this option. Have not shot the rifle yet, I don't for-see any problems. Overall a good surplus rifle
Nice rifle
Review by Kevin on 3/26/14

Got a 1925 rifle. It has about 50% blue, or less, but bore is shiny and lands are fairly sharp. Stock has an arsenal repair, a 2.5" x 1.5" rectangular patch just above and straddling the rear of the trigger guard, below the bolt handle. Finish on the stock is like glass, except for a few drips in the varnish and dozen or so small dings. It came with a leather sling. I have not been able to break the screws loose on the butt plate, yet, so don't know if there is a soldier's tag under it. Butt plate has no blue at all on it. Has a very recent string of gouges along one side of the trigger guard. Looks like it may have been re-crowned a few decades ago. For a surplus rifle, it is in pretty good condition. Won't be able to shoot it for a while, but don't see why it shouldn't uphold the reputation for accuracy that these rifles enjoy. A good purchase.

First purchase from Classic. Impressed. 1922 version of a straight pull. Took it to the range, flawless. Shoots great, looks great, and other shooters like the straight pull design. Packaged well and clean. All #s matching. A real beauty. Thanks Classic.
Another great purchase from Classic!!!

I recieved a swiss-K11 hand pick rifle made in 1925 with sling. The stock is good with some dings, nice grain.The blue is probably 70%-75%. Disasemmbled rifle and it looked very good all numbers match, and everything is numbered even the knobs on the bolt.Almost no blue on the butt plate, no troop tag. EXCELLENT TRIGGER shoots great, very well made rifle,the machining and fit are excellent. Thank you Classic.

I received an excellent k11 carbine. It has some dings and dents but all are very minor. bluing is worn some but for a rifle built in 1930 overall very good condition. Did not come with a sling but does have a troop tag in the stock which is an added bonus! And all numbers match on the rifle also. Thank you classic firearms for another great rifle!

My grandfather was Swiss, a very precise yet elegant man from hardy stock. This gun feels like it's come to me from his own hand.

The stock is a bit banged up but the walnut has some nice grain. The sling is quite nice and very comfortable. I'm looking forward to good times with it on the range...
Great !

Received mine last week :-) Does not seem to have been in battle because the wood is in great shape :-) No a hand pick either. Had sling as well :-) Has bluing wear but no rust. Had a very light coat of heavy cosmo grease :-) I plan to wipe it gown with a clean rag as to leave the protection. I don't know if I should touch up with cold blue ? What do you all think ? Can't wait to shoot it :-) It's a lead sled which I think that it's great because of recoil and stabilization :-)

Great purchase :-)

What do you expect from the Swiss?
Review by Gary on 2/21/14
Quality
Although this is no longer the front line Swiss
rifle it is still an accurate hitter and the fit and finish are excellent as you would expect from a country that prides itself on technical superiority. The straight pull takes a little getting used to but with some practice you can become quite proficient. The ammunition I have is Swiss surplus and is packaged to last a long time and also appears to be another Swiss quality product. You may not be able to afford a Swiss watch but you can afford the K11.
inspiration to a free nation..
Review by Drew on 2/21/14
Quality
This is why you should buy these guns and why Switzerland was never invaded when the Germans could have.... Inspiration to the fighting spirit of a free Nation unwilling to be conguored ...Well first, banks had no way to threaten the Germans as they would go into the banks in lands they conquered and take what they wanted and kill anyone who opposed them. It wasn't Switzerland's insignificance either as conquering the Swiss would have prevented access to funding for many of the 3rd Reich's enemies.

During the war over 1,700 allied fighter pilots found refuge in Switzerland, and many anti-war protesters (like seen in the Sound of Music) fleeing the draft also went to this nation.

During the war Swiss planes shot down at least 11 or more German fighters flying over their airspace (Swiss used German manufactured fighters to do this). Hitler even sent saboteurs into Switzerland to disable their runways at key times but they were often captured (the German spies tended to dress alike and stood out).

In my opinion Switzerland avoided occupation by use of a very integrated armed civilian force. Essentially the Swiss armed everyone with a rifle and some ammo. With a rifle in every home and the alps terrain an assult would be difficult. Switzerland had a decentralized democracy that could not be surrendered by a few elitist politicians. Hell, some Swiss didn't even know the name of the power weak president. So Hitler had no way to force a surrender by capturing a key city or a key politican (No flag to capture so to speak).

This had not been new, in 1912 a German Kaiser asked what a 1/4 million Swiss would do against 1/2 a million germans, the Swiss replie that they would shoot twice and go home. This was also told to Hitler by the King of Switzerland. In 1938 when Hitler Annexed Austria Switzerlands military declared a "fight to the last man" doctrine. In 1939 when Poland was invaded Switzerland's General Guisan ordered the citizen army to resist any attack until the last cartridge. After Denmark and Norway fell in 1940, Guisan and the Federal Council gave the order to the populace: "Aggressively attack invaders; act on your own initiative; regard any surrender broadcast or announcement as enemy propaganda; resist to the end." This was published as a message to the Swiss and a warning to the Germans; surrender was impossible, even if ordered by the government, for the prior order mandated that any "surrender" be treated as an enemy lie.

When France collapsed, detailed Nazi invasion plans with names like "Case Switzerland" and "Operation Tannenbaum" were prepared for the German General Staff. They only awaited the Fuehrer's nod.

Threatened with attack from German and Italian forces from all sides, General Guisan devised the strategy of a delaying stand at the border, and a concentration of Swiss forces in the rugged and impassable Alps. This chosen place of engagement was called the Réduit national, meaning a national fort within a fort. German tanks and planes, Panzers and Luftwaffe, would be ineffective there.

A fifth of the Swiss people, 850,000 out of the 4.2 million population, was under arms and mobilized. Most men were in the citizens army, and boys and old men with rifles constituted the Home Guard. Many women served in the civil defense and the anti-aircraft defense. Actually the Swiss didn't really have an army per say but rather was an armed nation of citizens.

Hitler called the Swiss "the most despicable and wretched people, mortal enemies of the new Germany"; in the same breath he fumed that all Jews must be expelled from Europe. His plan to annihilate the Jews would have faced a special obstacle in Switzerland, where every Swiss Jew (like every other citizen) had a rifle in his home. In the heroic Warsaw ghetto uprising of 1943, Jews demonstrated how genocide could be resisted with only a few pistols and rifles. Hitler boasted that he would liquidate "the rubbish of small nations" and would be "the Butcher of the Swiss." But the dictator was more comfortable with liquidating unarmed peoples and was dissuaded from invading Switzerland. There was no Holocaust on Swiss soil.

Switzerland was filled with Allied and Axis military personnel there essential as either members of the embassy or as survivors clinging to Switzerland as a lifeboat. In one show of force, when Vichy France was occupied, German soldiers with submachineguns took over the American embassy. The Swiss minister, brandishing his Swiss army knife, drove them out.

At Hitler's insistance a Nazi SS invasion plan, recommended for execution in 1944, warned the German general staff that the Swiss fighting spirit was high and shooting instruction good; German loses would be heavy, and a conquered Switzerland would require a strong occupation force.

During WWII Switzerland served as a lifboat to over 500,000 refugee's taking up sanctuary in private homes at owners expense.
Trials and tribulations of a fine Swiss weapon
Review by John on 6/29/13

When I first saw this rifle in the box, I was pleased. It looked really nice, tiger striped stock that wasn't dinged up too bad, some blueing wear, but no rusting or pitting. Got it home and started cleaning it up and noticed it did not have a front sight blade. Several phone calls back and forth with the people at Classic left me two choices: 1.) Keep the rifle and find/make a front sight blade for it or 2.) send the rifle back to Classic for a refund as they didn't have anymore. As it was a pretty nice rifle, I elected to keep it. After all, how dificult could it be to find a front sight blade? After nearly 6 months, I finally managed to find one on gunbroker, got it installed last week. Took the rifle to the range, anxious to try it out. Tried to chamber the first round, and it was nearly 1/4" from chambering. More frustration! Six diferent qualified people scrutinized the chamber and bore with lights, etc and pronounced it clean. Took the rifle home, mad as heckk, determined not to let it get the better of me. Soaked the chamber in solvent for about 30 mins, used a chamber on it, then saturated a doubled up patch with more solvent, jammed it in the chamber, and let it soak another 30 mins or so. Pulled the patch, ran a clean patch in the chamber and got nothing more than a small very light grey patch. Tried a round in the chamber and it dropped right in, and fell right back out. The next day, back to the range we went. First shot was about 8 1/2" high and 2" to the left at 25 yds. Next round was 2 1/4" left and 1/4" low. Third round was less than a 1/2" high and 1/2" right of dead center on the 4" red circle! Good enough for me! Loaded up a full magazine to check the functioning rapid fire. All 5 rounds inside a 5"x5" area, even with the sweat rolling in my eyes and my poor vision. Got her home and began the process of stock cleaning, after cleaning and oiling the rifle. Bottom line, I wish I had bought more, even though it's been a royal pain! She'll be really sweet once I get the stock refinished and the metal parts re blued.
one of the greats.

I got one of these from my parents for my 16th birthday and hunted with it using Norma cartridges. This thing has no forgiveness on deers I've shot up to almost 3 hundred pounds. Like a dummy I sold it. Classic got some in and I found out. Bought one after not having one over thirty years. It is still one of the most accurate army surplus rifles you can buy and can't be beat at the price. If you want a rifle with the knock down of a .308 or more this is the one. With 15 hundred meter iron sights that says something in it self. This a bad boy and Classic is selling them at a very good price. Pay the extra 10.00 for hand select and you won't be sorry. Thanks classic for making a wish come true.

i ordered the 1911 carbine from your site and was very impressed gun is in excellent condition for something made in 1924. will be refinishing the stock though it apears to be painted ? other than that small thing am very pleased thank you very much.

I chose hand select option and I guess I waited too late. The rifle is in "good" condition but the 1911 Long and the K31 that I ordered earlier were in better condition. Metal has some light rust and pitting. I think the bolt will look better after polishing. I'm a little disappointed but I'm still a fan of Classic Firearms. Shipping is always fast and customer service is very good.
swiss k-1911 carbine
Review by john on 11/14/12

This is my second rifle I have ordered from Classic Firearms. My first was the Russian PU sniper. Great gun and a great deal. My second was the Swiss k-1911 carbine. I ordered it with the hand select. The rifle was shipped promptly, ordered it Tuesday and received it Friday. When I opened the box the rifle was dusty, had a light coating of surface rust on it, the safety ring was rust covered, and the stock had been replaced and repaired in the past. The stock is cracked starting at the top of the left side down to trigger guard and runs past the magazine well, The stock still seems solid though. All the numbers match to include the magazine. the rifle clean up fine and I am looking forward to shooting it. My only concern is with the hand select. I was looking forward to receiving one in a little better condition than I did. More than likely if I would have seen this rifle before I bought it. I would have past on it do to it's condition.

Hi John - thanks for the review and for being a customer! We believe that "surface rust" is old dried up cosmoline and will wipe right off, let me know if it does not. The hand select if for the the best one out of ten for exterior cosmetics and for all matching #s. In the past, virtually every Swiss rifle we received had all matching #s, but that was not the case with this latest shipment as many were not all matching. Thus the hand select becomes even more of challenge depending on how many we have to pick through to find all matching #s (we do not stop at 10 for that one) as that is one thing we always make sure you receive with hand select. I hope this helps exp[lain why the condition may have been less than expected? We only charge $10.00 for the hand select and we do give quite a bit of our time to the process for that small charge. God bless, Rick Jones

12/04/2011 email update from John:

Mr Jones and the Classic Firearms team, Thanks for the response. I just read it on line. The K-1911 did cleaned up fine. I stripped it down and spent some time cleaning and polishing it. Since posting the review I took it out and shot it and was pleasantly surprised. The most accurate military surplus I've bought to date. My shooting buddy was even surprised. The repaired cracked stock kinda aggravated me at first, but after shooting it, it turned from a a ugly ducking to a gem. You guys run a first rate operation which is rare in this day in age. I keep hoping that you will get another shipment of those PU snipers. I want another one and my shooting buddy has been waiting to !!!!

I just picked this rifle up today and I could not be happier. The condition of it was fantastic, which has been the case with everything I've purchased from Classic. The wood is in beautiful shape with little in the way of wear on it, and the barrel is bright and beautiful. I checked the serial number and found it was made in 1917. Hard to believe I was holding something so old in such beautiful shape. Get one! You will not be disappointed. I spent the extra money for hand select and was very happy I did.

I ordered a K1911 long rifle and at first got the carbine instead. oops. was going to send it back but when I got it out of the packaging I was amazed. Walnut stock, in excellent condition - actually the cosmetics are better than any other Swiss rifle I own (and I own a few). 1932 dated receiver - 2nd to last year of production....all matching - 98% blue - bore is pristine. Sorry guys - you can't have this rifle back, its mine now ........ :-) TR
