4 Rifles 150 Years of Swisstory



Boy how times change. I wonder what the guy inletting the stock for the M1871 at Neuhausen back in the 19th century would think of the polymer stock made in the 21st century?? Would he even recognize it as coming from the same factory overlooking the same waterfall he saw everyday almost 150 years ago? There's just something special about Swiss craftsmanship no matter what century it was made in!

Well made and cursed to never be battle tested.

Nice group combloc. Owned a SIG-AMT years ago and it was something to behold. Unbelievably well crafted and finished.

Couldn't include any Schmidt-Rubins or a K31? For shame...



Nice gaggle o' Swiss shooters. I will have a K31 on the way shortly. Had four of them in years gone past. Sold them when they were going for five times what I paid, and now I just don't care about the current prices.

I'm ashamed to say I don't own a K31 anymore. I had a number of really nice ones but I'm in the same boat as you. I sold them for quite a profit and wont pay the current prices. They are great rifles and, considering the Quality, $750 is a good price but I was paying $150 back in the day and I just can't bring myself to do it now.
