W+F Bern Swiss K11 - sn 1703xx
This Swiss K11 carbine is in very good condition with 90% bluing (refurbished). 3/5 Bore. 5/5 Stock. Stock and handguard matching serial numbers. Bolt matching serial number. Magazine matching serial number. Charging handle knob cracked. Light pitting in bore. This is a factory refurbished K11. The metal surfaces, including the receiver and all normally blued metal components, have been refinished. The stock and handguard have also been sanded down and refinished and exhibits very little handling wear; the Swiss military acceptance stamp is still visible on the right side of the stock near the butt. With the refurbishment, the original magazine is a very tight fit. Includes muzzle cover and leather sling. Discreet import engraving.
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.
