Waffenfabrik Bern ~ 96/11 ~ 7.5x55mm
The Schmidt Rubin Model 1889/96 was the replacement for the 1889. The biggest change was moving the locking lugs from the rear of the bolt sleeve to the front of the bolt sleeve. This allowed the receiver to be shortened by a small amount. In addition the change allowed the bolt and receiver to handle more pressure. When the cartridge was modified in 1908 to increase the velocity of the bullet the 1896 bolt system was used. Almost all the model 89/96 rifles were converted to 96/11. Only a few remain in the original configuration and almost all of those are private series rifles that were never military issue. This one has matching number on receiver, bolt, magazine and barrel, different numbers on rear sight and butt pad.
