Brutus' Description

To accommodate the new more powerful 7.5x55 cartridge, it was determined that the 89/96 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.

NRA Surplus Good Surplus condition... not beauty queens, as Swiss rifles historically never were. They used their rifles. But they also never fired corrosive ammo so the bores are typically very good and even though you can expect standard dents dings and storage marks this particular lot is probably a couple of strokes better than par in the condition category as compared to other Swiss rifles we have previously received. See accompanying video for a good representation of these exact rifles.
