Days Until Christmas






To accommodate the new more powerful 7.5x55 cartridge introduced in 1911, it was determined that the M1896 -but not the M1889- could be converted to handle the new cartridge by re-barreling the rifle. M1896 rifles were converted to 1896/11s by replacing or modifying the following: rebarreling the action, new front and rear sights, and a pistol grip was grafted onto the original straight 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, and new trigger-guard was fitted to accommodate the new magazine.

The Swiss are renowned for their quality workmanship and attention to detail, and the Swiss soldiers typically took very good care to keep their rifles functional and serviceable. However, they used their rifles and carried them in traini ng in very harsh weather conditions. As such it is very typical for the external surfaces of Swiss surplus rifles to be well used and you can expect these rifles to have a lot of dents and dings or very minor cracks in the stock. You can also expect there to be a decent amount of bluing wear, with Fair showing more wear than Good condition rifles. The Swiss never used corrosive ammo and all of the bores we have seen have been exceptional. These rifles combined with the round they fire are well known for being match accurate.

Solid and functional rifles, these rifles are available in various grade from NRA Fair to Very Good Surplus Condition. See custom options below.

Rifles that are noted as Incomplete are missing a small, non-vital component, such as a sling swivel. The rifles will still be functional, and in compliance with the overall grade offered. Rifles marked as Cracked have a non-function inhibiting crack in the stock, and are still shootable.
