British Nitro Proofed, Swiss, Schmidt-Rubin Model 1889 7.5 x 53.5 mm Straight Pull, Rifle. Sn 7390. - 7390
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 52 "overall with a 30" barrel and has a full Walnut stock. The base of the stock near to the steel butt plate is nicely stamped with a Swiss Military Regimental mark ' D1 'Swiss Cross' C I' below a roundel containing a number '1'. The butt plate is stamped ' 6 'Swiss Cross' 781'. It has a quadrant sight graduated to 2000 metres. The metal work has nice patina throughout and is in undamaged condition. The breech housing is stamped with Swiss proof/ inspection marks and matching serial numbers '145111' on the breech housing, bolt and barrel. There is a sliver of wood along the top left hand of the breech which has a split in it is present, secure and does not affect the rifle in any way.A nice additional feature of this weapon is that it has a British nitro proof mark on the barrel. It is complete with bayonet lug and sling swivels. It's firing action works perfectly as it should and it's barrel has a clean crisp bore. Price for this great rifle includes UK delivery.
