Swiss Straight Pull Rifles 7.5/55

Swiss 7.5x55 Straight Pull Rifles


Swiss K-31 Carbine Rifle

Although the K31 is a straight-pull carbine like many other Swiss rifles, it was not designed by Rudolf Schmidt (1832-1898) as he was not alive to do so. 
The K31 was a totally new design by Eidgenossische Waffenfabrik in Bern, Switzerland under Colonel Furrer, and the gun does not have the Schmidt-designed 1889 or 1896 action. The first 200 K31s were made in May 1931 for troop trials (serials 500,001 - 500,200), thus the model number of 1931.  Some contain Troop Identification Tags Under the Buttstocks
These are nice  - Good to Very Good Condition 
7.5x55 caliber, Straight Pull. I Love These Rifles. Legendary Accuracy
Stocks are Walnut or Beechwood

Schmidt-Ruben M1896 / 11

The Schmidt - Rubin 1896/11 Rifle or the Model 96/11 was Switzerland's effort to upgrade their 1896 rifles
The original model 1896 fired a black powder propellent cartridge and was chambered in 7.5x53.
The upgrades brought this rifle into the 20th century.

Barrel Length – 78 cm (30.7 in): 4-groove, RH, concentric rifling, 1 in 10.63" (approx 6,000 96/11s had a twist rate of 1 in 9")

Overall Length – 130 cm (51.2 in), Weight – 4.51 kg (9.94 lbs) empty' Action – Schmidt-Rubin Straight Pull
Caliber – 7.5x55mm Swiss (GP 11)' Capacity – 6 round detachable box magazine
Sights – Tangent-leaf sight graduated to 2,000 m, Total Production : 135,770
Bayonet: Models 1889,1899 & 1906

To accomodate the new more powerful 7.5x55 cartridge, it was determined that the 1889/96 could easily be converted (Model 1889s could not) to handle the new cartridge by re-barreling the rifle.

1889/96s were converted to 1896/11s by replacing or modifying the following:

A new barrel was added.
Already fitted to the barrel were new front and rear sights.
A pistol grip was grafted onto the stock of the rifle.
The new rifles were also fitted with 6 round magazines, similar to the 1889/1900 pattern magazine, minus the reinforcing ridge, although the magazine did include a bolt hold-open *feature for when the magazine was empty.
A new trigger-guard was fitted to accommodate the new magazine.
I think these are really cool and show an important transitional leap in the evolution of the modern military firearm. 

These rifles were fitted with new barrels shortly before being taken out of service. The Swiss were known for the quality of their barrel steel and the bores in these have been excellent.
Excellent bores translates to tight groups and the accuracy 
displayed by these old rifles is just unbelieveable.

Schmidt-Rubin K1911 Long Rifle

An improvement over the original, 1889, version of the Schmidt-Rubin rifle, the Swiss M1911 placed the locking lugs in the middle of the bolt, rather than at the rear, strengthening the action and allowing a more powerful cartridge, the Gewehrpatrone 11 or GP 11 to be used. 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. 7.5x55 caliber, Straight Pull.
These Things Are Accuracy Personified

Schmidt-Rubin K1911 Carbine

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.

Swiss Schmidt Rubin Model 1889 Rifle - Antique - NO FFL REQUIRED


Originally introduced into the Swiss Army in 1890, the Model 1889 with a 12 round, box magazine capacity was eagerly accepted into service by Swiss soldiers. The Model 1889 had twice the range and was far more accurate than the older black powder Vetterli. This rifle is equipped to be fitted with the Model 1889 bayonet.Total Schmidt Rubin Model 1889 rifles produced: approx. 212,00. The overall condition of these rifles is very nice and the bores have been remarkable. It always amazes me to see the workmanship in these early guns and the Swiss have by far the best examples.

This rifle originally fired a black powder based centerfire cartridge that is slightly shorter than the modern 7.5x55 ammunition. Bolt is not made to withstand the high pressure generated by modern cartridges but many handloaders are still making their own ammunition and claim amazing accuracy with this weapon.
 Do NOT load 7.5x55/GP11 ammo into this rifle and fire! It is UNSAFE!

Due to its age this rifle is considered an Antique Firearm and 
No FFL Is Required for Purchase.
