MATCHING NUMBERS, Swiss Army, Schmidt-Rubin Model 1911 7.5 x 53.5 mm Straight Pull Carbine **UK/EU DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED** Sn 17011 - 17011
In 1882 Eduard Rubin began testing the first small-calibre copper-jacketed bullet which could successfully withstand high velocities. In 1885, this round was combined with Rudolf Schmidt's first straight-pull action resulting in the Swiss, Schmidt-Rubin rifle. In the early 1900’s The Swiss realized that its support troops, cavalry, and certain other units required a shorter rifle than was currently available and so designed the Model 1911 carbine. The Swiss 1911 carbine being smaller, lighter and still lethally accurate, it became a favourite of the Swiss Army. This is an excellent example of the model 1911 Swiss carbine. It measures 43 ¼” overall with a 23 ½” barrel and has all original woodwork. The stock and blued metal are stamped with a Swiss Military cross marks. The breech housing is stamped with Swiss proof/ inspection marks and matching serial numbers '54744' on the barrel, bolt and magazine. It is complete with bayonet bar & forward sling swivel. The stock is also slotted for sling anchor. It has an adjustable rear sight and winged fore sight. Deactivated to UK/EU specification, the bolt and trigger move and the magazine can be removed but the firing mechanism has been internally disconnected so it will not cock & dry fire. The price includes UK/EU deactivation certificate & UK delivery. Sn 17011

Sterling then sub-contracted the work to List Engineering of Dagenham, which completed SKN's returned to ROF Enfield for inspection and service acceptance. This example is stamped with the correct SKN designation (see page 230 of the Lee Enfield Story By Skennerton) ‘SKN 2256’. The stock has a brass butt plate with trap. Component parts were carefully sectioned at the factory, with cutaway areas painted red. The piece measures 28” overall length. This SKN is in excellent overall condition.
