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.

The Swiss Vetterli rifles combined the American M1866 Winchester rifle's tubular magazine and a bolt system derived from the German Dreyse.

This is an excellent M78 Vetterli bolt action rifle. The metal work has original blue finish. It has all original, undamaged wood furniture which is impressed with Swiss military inspection mark. The side of the action is stamped with military ‘Swiss Cross’ mark and stamped 'M78 Waffenfabrik Bern' together with model designation ‘M78’ and serial number ‘190049’. The barrel, butt plate, underside of the action & bolt cover have matching numbers ‘49’. There are no external visible numbers on the bolt. It has an adjustable rear sight, block & blade foresight, bayonet lug, sling swivels, steel butt plate and original cleaning rod. The rifle is 52” overall length with a 33” barrel. The barrel’s bore is near mint, clean and bright with crisp rifling. The loading & firing action work crisply. The price includes UK delivery.
