The furniture's grading of 2/5 is due to the lack of original finish on the wood as it has been sanded down by the previous owner and not refinished. The Swiss military acceptance stamps in the stock and handguard are still present. There is no structural damage noted with the furniture. Due to the sanding, the furniture now exhibits a rough texture.
The Model 1911 rifle is a magazine fed, straight pull, bolt action rifle produced by Eidgenossische Waffenfabrik Bern that employs all of the upgrades of the converted 1896/11 rifle from the factory. The Model 1911 rifle is chambered in 7.5x55mm Swiss Gewehrpatrone 1911 (GP11) and was produced by the Swiss federal armory from 1913 through 1919.
