Swiss K11 Carbine, produced in 1927, in very good condition with 90% finish. 5/5 Bore. 4/5 Stock. Stock and handguard matching serial numbers. Bolt matching serial number. Magazine matching serial number.
It is possible that the furniture had been previously sanded and refinished as the Swiss military acceptance stamp on the right side at the rear is shallow, but the edges of the finger grooves are still sharp. On the right side of the stock there is a small gouge at the bottom of the grip and a long heavy pressure mark or gouge at the top of the grip, near the tang. There is a long vertical scrape above the magazine, to the left of the finger groove. On the left side of the stock, there are two scratches at the grip. Inside the finger groove there are two heavy pressure marks. The top of the handguard has an armory repair in front of the rear sight.
Bluing is likely refurbished. The receiver has some scattered light pitting from previous rust. Front barrel band has light finish wear on the top and left sides.
Receiver is P63 stamped, indicating privatization in 1963.
C&R Eligible. Discreet import engraving.
