    Swiss rifles

    A friend took me to a gentleman who had just celebrated his 90th birthday and decided it was time to let go of his weapons

    So I was asked to help him evaluate and move them

    There was a SIG P210 from 1980 (private version in 9mm), a Hämmerli 215 (.22lr), a Röhm RG 14 (.22lr), a Belgian revolver, (he bought all of those) and a Walther P38 in .30 Luger / 7.65 mm Parabellum (I bought this one).

    And a few Swiss rifles, a Schmidt-Rubin 96/11, two 1911 carbines and two 1931 carbines





    96/11





    K11







    K31









    Some had name tags under the buttplate













    I’m not sure what we’ll do with the riffles. LGS typically pay $ 100 for 96/11 and K11 and around $ 200.- for K31 here in Switzerland.

    Nice little treasure trove you came upon.
    Wish I could take a couple off your hands.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms, as well as the major Food Groups.

    The 1911, and 1931 carbines speak to me, ammunition is about impossible to source at this time, even if they were for sale here In the FUSA.
