Please see video for specific details on its surplus condition. Expect standard dents dings, scratches and storage marks as are common to Swiss rifles but this rifle cane from one of the nicer batches we have seen.
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. They are also the last variation with the flatter mag plate which bench shooters tend to prefer, as well as the grooved Schmidt Rubin design bolt, and bakelite charging handle. 7.5x55 caliber, Straight Pull. The group this rifle came from was overall in good surplus condition with many being much better than that, especially by Swiss rifle standards.
Important Please Read - When it comes to Swiss rifles the grading standard can be a little skewd. 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 training 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 this rifle to have some dents and dings or minor cracks in the stock. You can also expect for there to be a certain amount of bluing wear that would possibly be considered excessive on any other surplus rifle. Please see images for details. Now we have seen a lot of Swiss rifles and by Swiss rifle standards, this came in as pretty nice. Still, if you are expecting your rifle to sparkle like a new penny when you open the box then save yourself the disappointment and don't bid on this rifle.
