Schmidt Rubin, Model G11

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

Just checked the prices of 7.5x55 and it's around 65¢ (and up) a round delivered, for the exact same
RUAG 591-1100 in your photo.
That's pretty expensive for ammo here too..... :shock:

I bought 40 rounds of PRVI Partisan at a gun fair in July, it cost me $1.18 a round and that was a good price here :shock:

Is the angled steel tool some sort of chamber cleaning tool or maybe a handle for the cord ???

It's a chamber cleaning tool Vern, the straight part is covered in wire mesh.

Yes, a chamber cleaning tool.

You can see that additional mesh came with the kit too. The pull-through has an opening mid way along it that can accommodate a patch or mesh.

That kit looks like it's in great shape!

Arrived at the range this afternoon at about 2:40 pm and ALL the full bore ranges were taken. All I could do was pay my subs for next year and bugger off home.......

Why didn't you just wait around a while. How many bullets could a Frenchman afford anyway? At least a couple of them would have shot off their dozen rounds and returned home before long. :bigsmile:

Works for pistol and .22 rifles but not for full bore. Once they are taken that's the afternoon gone............
