A 96/11 conversion

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 occaisonally inspiring ones.

A 96/11 conversion

Postby joseyclosey » Sat Feb 15, 2014 10:54 am

I heard my local dealer had taken in a .22 Schmidt Rubin so I went along expecting a K31 conversion and was surprised to find it 96/11. I got to shoot it Thursday evening and was well impressed with the accuracy.
He also had a .22 Lebel Buffalo rifle but unfortunately I didn;t get to shoot or photograph that one although hopefully I will get the opportunity to do so before it sold.
