This rare Swiss ZFK55 (ZFK31/55) sniper rifle is in very good condition with 95% original finish. All matching serial numbers (bolt, magazine, handguard, stock). Bore is graded 5/5. The serial number indicates that this ZFK55 was manufactured in 1957.
Includes an attached folding bipod, heavy barrel with integrated compensator, matching removable KERN 3.5x optic with QD mount, matching serial# protective scope canister, non-serialized bayonet with sheath, as well as a factory made and armory-prepared spare stock.
The original matching serial number stock has a fracture in the pistol grip and we would recommend against firing this ZFK31/55 rifle with the original stock installed. Our grading with the armory-prepared stock installed brings the overall grading up to "95% - Excellent".

The Swiss ZFK55 (Zielfernrohr-Karabiner 55 or Mousqueton à Lunette 55) is a purpose-built marksman rifle. An estimated 4,150 rifles were produced. While it is also known as the ZFK31/55 and modeled after the K31, it shares very few components with the Swiss K31 rifle. Its barrel is heavier than that of the K31. The receiver is canted to the right which leaves the magazine and bolt off-set and allows for the use of a standard K31 charger without interfering with the scope. The KERN 3.5x telescoping sight has a quick detach mount that securely attaches directly to the rifle's receiver.
