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 7.5×55mm Schmidt–Rubin rifle cartridge.

The Karabiner Model 1931 (K31) is a magazine-fed, straight-pull bolt action rifle. It was the standard issue rifle of the Swiss armed forces
from 1933 until 1958 though examples remained in service into the 1970s. It has a 6-round removable magazine, and is chambered for the 7.5×55mm Swiss.


This example was manufactured in 1942 with a light walnut stock, in very good condition and excellent bore.
