W+F Bern Swiss 1911 - sn 3551xx
This Swiss 1911 Rifle, produced in 1912, is in excellent condition with 95% finish. 5/5 Bore. 5/5 Stock. Stock and handguard matching serial numbers. Bolt matching serial number. Magazine matching serial number. Stock has light tiger striping found at the butt. Furniture overall has very few handling marks and is extremely clean. There is a small gouge behind the tang. Overall finish is excellent, with very dark bluing and minimal wear. We were unable to check for the existence of a soldier's tag as one of the butt plate screws is too tight to remove and we do not want to risk damage. Bore is shiny and sharp. Stamp on receiver indicates this rifle was armory refurbished in 1925. Receiver is P stamped with a year that appears to be "93". Includes muzzle cover and sling. C&R Eligible. Discreet import engraving.
