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 these rifles to have a lot of 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. .... Now we have seen a lot of Swiss rifles and by Swiss rifle standards, these come 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 order one of these.
