    Swiss Military Schmidt-Rubin Model 1889 7.5 x 53.5 mm Obsolete Calibre Straight Pull Rifle With Model 1918 Elsener Schwyz Victoria Bayonet, Scabbard & Frog. A 1046 - A 1046

    In 1882 Eduard Rubin began testing the first small-calibre copper-jacketed bullet which could successfully withstand high velocities. In 1885, this round was combined with Rudolf Schmidt's first straight-pull action resulting in the Swiss, Schmidt-Rubin Model 1889 7.5 x 53.5 mm Rifle. This is a very good example with excellent wood and metal work throughout. It measures 51 ½” overall with a 31" barrel. The bore is near mint, clean and bright with crisp rifling. The stock is stamped with Swiss Military marks and roundel with number ‘1’. The breech housing & barrel are stamped with matching serial numbers '145111'. There is no visible external number on the bolt. The bolt, breech, magazine and steel butt plate have Swiss cross military marks. The butt plate is numbered ‘6’ above ‘781’. It is complete with bayonet bar, sling swivels, adjustable rear sight and block & blade fore sight. Its cocking and firing actions work perfectly. The rifle comes with an original Swiss Model 1918 Schmidt Rubin, bayonet and scabbard with frog (see page 272, No. 608 of The Bayonet Book by Watts and White). The bayonet is in excellent condition. The smooth grips are of light wood and secured with two rivets. The polished steel pommel has a sprung push button bayonet release which works perfectly. It has a straight cross guard with muzzle ring numbered ‘967281’. On the underside of the cross guard it has the 'Swiss Cross' stamp. The ricasso is stamped by the manufacturer 'Elsener Schwyz Victoria'. The double edged polished steel blade with medial ridge is clean and measures 12" (17" overall). The scabbard is metal, painted black and is fitted with an original leather frog which has a retaining strap with buckle and large belt loop. The rear of the frog is impressed with Swiss cross mark, number ‘89’ and with indistinct manufacturer cartouche. The price includes UK delivery. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre antique firearm no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. A 1046
