W+F Bern Swiss 1911 - 362xxx
Swiss 1911 Infantry Rifle, produced in 1913, in very good condition with 80% finish. 5/5 Bore. 4/5 Stock. Stock and handguard matching serial numbers. Bolt matching serial number. Magazine matching serial number.
One of 15,000 total produced (one of 9,000 in 1913) with a faster 230mm twist barrel (1:9.05") before switching back to 270mm (1:10.63") later in 1913. These rifles were issued to the Landwehr (reserve troops).
Stock appears to have been previously sanded as the Swiss military acceptance stamp on the right side of the stock is not visible. Mild pressure marks throughout the stock.
On the right side of the stock, there is a mild gouge and light scratches near the toe, couple of light gouges below the comb, and a couple of light gouges and marks on the pistol grip. On the left side of the stock, there is a long scratch on the grip. Fair handling wear along the side of the stock from the grip to the finger groove, with multiple light marks. In front of the comb there is a heavy gouge at the receiver tang. The top side of the handguard has a heavy gouge directly rear of the rear barrel band and another heavy gouge forward of the rear barrel band.
Receiver has moderate to heavy finish wear and scattered surface marks throughout. Both barrel bands are likely refinished as their level of finish wear does not match the receiver. Not much finish wear on the barrel bands but there are tooling marks present on both. Mild finish wear on the magazine plate. Light to mild finish wear on the trigger guard. Light to mild finish wear on the magazine base.
Receiver is P stamped. N26 stamped below the serial number indicates armory refurbishment in 1926.
Includes muzzle cover and leather sling.
C&R Eligible. Import engraved.
