    I have a set of Schmidt-Rubins that I am considering selling from my personal collection. I also have an original field kit for them. They are all original, a couple have the P stamp designation meaning the soldier took their rifle home after retirement. I am not selling in this post, just gauging interest. Please contact me for more info.

    K 31-7.5x55 Swiss Manufactured 1941

    1896/11 (P-Stamped) 7.5x55 Swiss Manufactured 1897

    1889 (P-Stamped) 7.5x53.5 Manufactured 1896

    1911 (P-Stamped) 7.5x55 Swiss Manufactured 1917

    I have a ton of pictures of them, and would be more than happy to show them in person. If you have any interest please let me know.

    Check the current pricing before you sell them, Prices are out of sight now, much, much more than you paid. I have several I bought post Katrina for about $75 ea. I just looked at the Simpsons site, and they are asking $500-700 and mid 400 range for 96's and 1911's. I have a 96/11 I got about 15 years ago via a group buy on one of the Swiss rifle forums, that I shot my best ever 100 yard group with iron sights. I have on it and on a 1942 K 31 a Swiss Furter sight, probably worth a lot more than the actual gun. The 1942 is the one that got me interested in the straight pulls, picked it up on a whim at a Tyler Tx gun show. I did some scraping on that beaver chewed stock and got a fantastic piece of flame grain walnut that would today probably be a 6-700 dollar blank.
