Out of stock


Very Good Condition with 80% Original Finish. Matching Bolt and Magazine S/N#. 5/5 Bore. P. Stamped. 05 & 37 Stamps. For refurbishing and retirement. Stock is a refurbishment made by K. Zimmermann of Luzern with a longer 1911 Style buttplate. No serial number on the stock. Sling is non-military.

The 1896/11 rifle is a modernized version of the 1889 that was designed to handle the more powerful 7.5x55mm Swiss Gewehrpatrone 1911 (GP11) cartridge. GP11 has similar ballistic qualities to that of the 7.62x51mm NATO / .308 Winchester round. Other improvements were made in order to make the 1896/11 lighter and easier to handle, such as a new barrel and a 6 round capacity box magazine.
