    Swiss Military Vetterli M1878 (M78) .41 Rim Fire Fire Calibre Bolt Action Rifle By Waffenfabrik Bern. Sn 12948 - 12948

    The Vetterli rifles were a series of Swiss army service rifles in use from 1869 to circa 1890, when they were replaced with Schmidt-Rubin rifles. Modified Vetterli rifles were also used by the Italian Army. The Swiss Vetterli rifles combined the American M1866 Winchester rifle's tubular magazine and a bolt system derived from the German Dreyse. Due to the Swiss Federal Council's early 1866 decision to equip the army with a breech loading repeating rifle, the Vetterli rifles were, at the time of their introduction, the most advanced military rifles in Europe. This is an excellent M78 Vetterli bolt action rifle in .41 rim fire obsolete calibre rifle. It has all original, undamaged wood furniture. The left side plate is stamped with ‘Swiss Cross’ mark and stamped 'M78 Waffenfabrik Bern' together with model designation ‘M78’ and serial number ‘175747’. The barrel, butt plate and breech plate have matching numbers. The bolt is numbered ‘4286’ It has an adjustable rear sight, block & blade foresight, bayonet lug, sling swivels, steel butt plate and original cleaning rod. The bore is clean with crisp rifling. The loading & firing action works perfectly. Price includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre antique rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 12948
