Brutus' Description

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.

Notice: 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. 

SPECIFICATIONS: Overall Length: 51.25"; Barrel: 30.7"; Weight, Unloaded w/out Bayonet: 10.69 lbs; Action: Schmidt Rubin straight pull; Caliber: 7.5 x 53.5 mm Swiss; Sight Type: Quadrant sight graduated to 2000 meters;  No FFL required for the purchase of antique firearms. The purchase of this item requires the purchaser to be at least 21 years of age or older.

The gun arrived in rougher condition than I expected but it also cleaned up better than I expected. I worked up a GP90/23 load and did a detailed review on my YouTube channel.

I unboxed this on camera and you can tell in my voice and expression that I wasn't expecting the rifle to be this nice. If you ever have a change to pickup any Swiss Surplus rifle be it the 1889, 1911, or K31 get one before they are gone! Please keep in mind the 1889 does not shoot the 7.5x55 round used in the 1911 and the K31. The ammo is long gone and must be made by a skilled reloader.

Good Old Gun, But With Import Mark
Review by Joe on 9/15/16
Quality
Rifle will need some cleaning up as expected. The rifle was also import marked which I had thought did not need to be done on an antique firearm. Pity.
After a lot of elbow grease it's starting to look good.
Review by Don on 9/8/16
Quality
I was initially disappointed when I opened up the box. I got the last one Classic had and it looked like it. There was quite a bit of surface pitting on the receiver. The pitting isn't deep but it's there. The cocking ring is broken as well as the cocking handle knob. The butt stock had a lot of rust on it. The stock is excellent and the bore is fine. Thank God Numrich Gun Parts is out there. So, after working on the metal parts it is starting to be a good looking antique rifle. In the end I am pleased and looking forward to shooting it.
Amazing product and deal

Old rifle is everything promised and more. There is some damage to my rifle but nothing you wouldnt expect from a 100+ year old rifle. All that "damage" does is add character and individuality to the rifle. For any collector this is a must have. For anyone intending to fire this rifle, good luck finding the ammunition for it unless you know how to make it. I will be buying from Classic firearms again. Great products and customer service.
Outstanding quality for a 127b year old antique rifle!
Review by MICHAEL on 8/19/16

I was a bit concerned that this rifle would be a bit weathered and worn, but once I pulled it out of the box I was amazed! The Swiss really DO take good care of their rifles! I paid the little bit extra to get the better pick of the lot in both the rifle and the bayonet, and it was well worth it. Both came in excellent shape. Thanks to the good people of Classic Firearms. Great customer service also. I talked to a few reps and they were awesome folks. This rifle is a highly recommended pick-up. It has been a blast showing it to family and friends.
Beautiful
Review by Robert on 8/9/16

Just received this rifle today. It's so hard to believe how old this is. All matching numbers, super nice/smooth bolt action, bright bore, nice stock, no "beaver chew" and ZERO COMPLAINTS. I really can't wait to cast bullets and work up some loads for this one. Again, I can't say enough about how nice this rifle is. One thing I've noticed on Swiss rifles is a good percentage of them are burnt or charred on the ends. Looks like it's from poking at campfires hah. This was a good deal. I also want to add that the packing has really improved. I ordered a K-31 a couple years ago. The bolt handle had poked through the side of the box and when I opened it up, literally a few peanuts fell out. The rifle wasn't damaged but it was disappointing for the price paid. This rifle was packed extremely well. The box didn't (couldn't) rattle and the Bakelite bolt handle was surrounded 2 or 3 times in bubble wrap. It was actually a little hard to pull out of the box. Excellent!! Thanks again Classic!!

Like New with a Surprise under the Butt-Stock Plate
Review by Deadly in OKC on 7/30/16
Quality
Swiss Schmidt Rubin Model 1889 Rifle number 63XXX was manufactured in 1892, and is in outstanding condition. Bluing is over 95 percent and touched up to 100 percent with Eastwood's Metal Blackening Solution. The walnut stock is in excellent.condition with a few very minor dings on the butt-stock. The finish on this rifle is the finest that I've seen on a Swiss rifle - - it looks like it was hand-rubbed and finished with a fine loil that was then buffed to a smooth final finish. There was light oil on the pull bolt, and the barrel rifling is in pristine condition. If I had the correct ammunition, this one is ready to shoot, now ! I do not think this rifle has been fired very much at all, so I took the metal butt-plate off and saw the troop tag with name and address on it - - he took exceptional care in maintaining and storage of this rifle. Thanks Classic, this is the best one yet !
Very nice

Received my 1889 Swiss yesterday and I couldn't be happier ( with the exception that you just dropped the price hehe ) .A little nick here , a little blueing there... but if it was in any better shape , I would almost think it was a repro , This rifle finishes my straight pull collection . I waited a while for these to become available and as usual , you didn't disappoint ..Can' wait to see what you get in next !!!

I got my Swiss Schmidt Rubin Model 1889 in a few days ago and it is in absolutely beautiful condition for a 126 year old gun. there are a few nicks here and there but its still an overall beautiful piece.

Amazed at the condition of the rifle I received today...looks new! I believe these must have been refurbished at some point due to the finish ... but does not distract from the original collectible condition! Barrel storage cap was a nice surprise! So in summary - excellent - as usual from Classic! Hope someone begins to manufacture ammo for these...would be a great shooter ...

Disappointed
Review by Bill on 3/14/15

I was almost like a little kid on Christmas morning when my Swiss Schmidt Rubin 1889 arrived. I couldn't wait to tear open the box. The first thing that I noticed was that the bolt handle was sticking through the side of the box. Once the rifle was unboxed, my disappointment began. I opted for the hand select option, and in my opinion it was money wasted. The receiver and bolt both had pitted rust. There was basically no bluing left. The stock was very beat up. After reading other reviews, I am wondering how this could have possibly been a hand select. I have purchased many surplus rifles over the years, with probably near 10 from Classic Firearms. This is the first time that Classic has let me down. Hopefully it is just a fluke. But on a positive note, this rifle had a clean barrel and great bore. It will be a welcomed part to my collection until I can come across one that is in better condition.
I hope I'm in this kind of shape when I'm 123!

Absolutely gorgeous condition. Bolt knobs intact. The only blemishes on this specimen appear to be only storage marks! Given its age, I don't think you could ask for a rifle in any better condition! The bore looks like glass. I'll work up some handloads and when warmer weather rolls around, I'll take this Swiss Miss out to the range and see if she shoots as good as she looks.
Solid Model 1889
Review by David on 3/6/15
Quality
I was pleased to see that Classic Firearms was able to find some Swiss Model 1889 rifles and did not hesitate to buy one. The rifle arrived wrapped in bubble wrap especially around the bolt, so the gun was protected. However, it was able to flop around in the box which was not ideal. A little bit of extra paper stuffed into the box would have eliminated this condition. None the less, the rifle is in very good condition with all matching numbers and a sling attached. The stock does have some minor old scratches, chips, and dings and a few fresh ones as well but nothing outrageous. The sling however is very brittle which is not uncommon considering the age of this gun. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase and will continue to buy from Classic. I can’t wait to see what they are able to dig up next!
Disappointed with cracked wrist stock
Review by David on 3/6/15

I received my Swiss Schmidt Rubin 1889 on 03/05/2015 . Shipping box was not damaged and the rifle was carefully packaged. I was sadden that the left wrist stock has a crack extending from the tag to the rear section of the trigger guard.The crack can be felt and was never repaired .I think it is an old crack.The rest of the rifle is fine with a sling but no muzzle cap. I paid for a hand selection.I have purchased numerous firearms from Classic in the past.
I have contacted Classic with pictures of the problem area. We shall see what happens. They are out of stock at this time.
Excellent Condition for Age
Review by Mike on 3/5/15

First off I had been looking for a swiss 1889 rifle for quite some time, but everyone wanted way too much money for them. When I saw that Classic Firearms had them for an unbeatable price I rushed to buy one before they sold out and I am glad I did. The shipping was fairly quick and the rifle was in awesome shape considering how old it is. All of the serial numbers matched and the bluing and finish on the wood was nice and even through out. The only down side was that the bolt handle was sticking out from the box it was shipped in and it had scraped up against something, but it wasn't too bad. Overall the condition was excellent for the price and I definitley plan on doing more business with Classic Firearms in the future.

Thank You,
Mike
Could not be more pleased!

Always wanted a Model 1889, and when they became available again, I wasted no time in placing my order. The rifle arrived today and I could not be happier. It looks like a piece that was issued new 120 years ago, kept safe and secure, and now awakened to be cleaned, oiled and loved. Wood and metal both beautiful. Even came with the original muzzle cover and sling! I cannot overstress how impressed I am with this rifle. Thanks Classic, for a beautiful gun at a price ordinary folks can afford. Looking forward to continuing to do business with you in the future! God Bless.

Even came with the original muzzle cover and sling! I cannot overstress how impressed I am with this rifle. Thanks Classic, for a beautiful gun at a price ordinary folks can afford. Looking forward to continuing to do business with you in the future! God Bless.
