The Schmidt–Rubin rifles were a series of Swiss Army service rifles in use between 1889 and 1958.
They are distinguished by the straight-pull bolt action invented by Rudolf Schmidt and use Eduard Rubin's 7.5mm Schmidt–Rubin rifle cartridge.

The .22 training versions of the Schmidt-Rubin appear to have been made, generally converted from Model 1911or Model 1889 rifles.

This example is converted from the 1889 model originally manufactured in 1892, incorporating the features and upgrades from the M1911

The Butt has been extended by 1" giving approx 13" Length of Pull
