    ALL MATCHING NUMBERS, Swiss, Schmidt-Rubin Model 1889 7.5 x 53.5 mm Straight Pull Rifle. Sn 13624:23 - 13624:23

    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 an excellent example. It measures 51 ½” overall with a 31" barrel and has all original woodwork. The stock is stamped with a Swiss Military mark ‘D7+CI’ and the steel butt plate with 'Swiss Cross' together with numbers ‘3’ and ‘374’. The metal work retains its original bluing and is in excellent undamaged condition. The breech housing is stamped with Swiss proof/ inspection marks and matching serial numbers '49040' on the breech housing, bolt, barrel and magazine. It is complete with bayonet bar, sling swivels, adjustable rear sight and block & blade fore sight. Its firing action works perfectly as it should and it's barrel has a clean bore with crisp rifling. 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. Sn 13624:23
