    M1889 Swiss Schmidt-Rubin

    Bit the bullet and picked this one up to expand the Swissicon accumulation. Mfg. 1893. Mag is a mis-match, but looks like the replacement was done some time ago. P30 mark on left receiver. Am I correct in that this indicates it passed out of service to an ex-serviceman, possibly in 1930?
    Didn't hurt at all that as an antique, it was shipped right to my door with no interference or interaction whatsoever from/with various restrictive governmental entities. A pleasant whiff of times past there.
    I'll be slugging the bore when I get a chance in order to produce loads appropriate to it's design.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction).

    Please keep us updated on the load development. I got one of these last year, but am still too busy shooting the others to really have a chance to play with this one yet. But I know I will want to!

    May take a while until testing. My shooting spot for years was closed down by conniving local authorities. Option B involves a minimum of an hour and a half drive each way. It'll happen though. There are some older threads here on the subject. I'm intending to start with two angles, a 220g RNFMJ , and a lighter cast bullet load.
