The ZFK55 overall is in fantastic shape, with almost no handling marks on the furniture. Furniture features nice, dark, long grain wood patterns and a good looking clear coat. The bluing on the receiver looks factory new. This example looks like it just came off the production line in 1958. It's hard to believe this rifle is 60+ years old.

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.
