Very Good Condition - Matching Serial Numbers
Produced concurrently with the 1911 Rifle, the 1911 Carbine replaced both the Short Rifle and Calvary Carbine.
While production of the 1911 rifle stopped in 1919, Carbine production continued until 1933 with some 184,000 Carbines being produced.
These rifles & carbines, along with those converted to the new pattern, fired the new GP11 round.
The 1911 possessed all the improvements of the converted Schmidt-Rubin 1896/11 Rifle.
The original rubberised bolt knob had started to deteriate
with age, which is a common problem. We have fitted a brand new old stock
genuine swiss replacement.
This example has its original leather sling and the originals owners detail are still stored under the butt plate
This is a nice original matching set with the rifle having a very good bore
