The Karabiner Model 1911 (K11) is the shorter, lighter, carbine model of the Swiss 1911 rifle. It is a magazine fed, straight pull, bolt action rifle chambered in 7.5x55mm Swiss Gewehrpatrone 1911 (GP11). Though the 1911 rifle ceased production in 1919, the K11 was produced through 1933 as the Swiss military realized the benefit of outfitting their service members with shorter, lighter, carbines.

I am extremely satisfied with the purchase of this beautiful Swiss K11 carbine. The 5/5 bore rating was accurate, the 85% bluing was rated properly as well, the photos were also accurate. The “very good” description was also spot on. The price was very fair. Bolt was in excellent condition. I’m amazed at the Swiss craftsmanship on this 94 year old carbine. This was my first purchase with Edelweiss. I already have my eye on another.
