Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Schmidt Rubin Model 1889 -- 7.5 x 55 Swiss Bolt Action Rifle, Carbine, Antique

LSB#: 111202AS02

Make: Schmidt-Rubin, Switzerland

Model: 1889. The locking lugs are in the bolt and not in the receiver ring. The overall bolt length appears to be about 7” from the bolt face to the back of the locking lug.

Serial Number: 119290

Year of Manufacture: 1889-1896

Caliber: 7.5 x 55 Swiss

Action Type: Bolt Action, Removable Magazine. Note: there is no magazine present.

Markings: The barrel, bolt and receiver ring are numbered “119290”. The rear sight and buttplate are marked “290”. There are many Swiss crosses on the bolt rifle and barrel. We have attempted to photograph all markings.

Barrel Length: 22”

Sights / Optics: There is a front blade mounted in a dovetail slot atop a post. The rear sight has a spring loaded adjustable leaf. The spring and leaf are intact and functional.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock has been sporterized by removing the forend and curving the remaining wood. The stock is a one piece straight stock, with a military buttplate. There are several nicely filled repaired cracks; across the wrist, on the left below the metal of the receiver at the bolt and on the right side above the trigger guard. There is a gap / poor fit at the top tang, probably occurring at the time of repair. The bolt handle is missing its wood. There are sling swivels installed. Overall the stocks rate in about good serviceable condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: Looks Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is medium deep. There is no apparent erosion.

Overall Condition: This gun retains about 70% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows some muzzle wear, age wear on the receiver as well as some beginning surface erosion. The bolt has some discoloration and the bolt ring has some surface erosion. The trigger guard shows wear and some tool marks around the rear screw. The screw heads are serviceable and show wear and minor disfiguration. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about very good condition, with the only sporterization being to the wood. The barrel may have been shortened, though we do not see signs of that and the front sight looks correct.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this gun. There is no magazine provided, the bolt handle wood is missing.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is a nicely appointed and lightly sporterized Schmidt-Rubin with a repaired stock. These rifles shoot the 7.5x55 Swiss round, known for its accuracy. This rifle is an example of the straight pull bolt design, with rear locking lugs. This is a quality built and finely made military rifle, just what you would expect from the Swiss. Shoot this gun! Please see the “Standard catalog of Military Firearms” by Ned Schwing, pages 274 and 275 for more information.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California and is classified as an antique. This rifle can be sold to anyone 18 years of age with valid ID.
