Swiss 1911 Carbine


Subscribe to Channel

Showing and shooting a vintage 1927 Swiss 1911 Carbine (7.5X55 Swiss) I can't pretend to be an expert on Swiss rifles, but these straight-pull Schmidt-Rubin rifles are very interesting bolt guns. We appreciate the viewer who lent us the rifle.

As mentioned in the video, there is a fair amount of misinformation, I think, about Swiss private gun ownership, particularly in current times. The Swiss, almost universal military service and military rifle ownership is quite interesting; however, where that stands today is not quite the same as in past years. You folks who actually live over there in the land of "tall snowy hills" clue us in on the status of Swiss gun ownership today. Educate us. :-)
