Schmidt Rubin has been sporterized and drilled for a scope.

$100

Gun is in Lodi and I would prefer face to face.

Make sure it's not an 1889 if you want to shoot GP11.

Just mentioning this because the magazine looks similar to the 1889 in the link above.

I actually owned this one for a while. This it what I learned about it.



My best guess it that is is a 1889 with a shortened barrel, based on the location of the locking lugs and the mag, but it could also be a 1905 carbine (the barrel length matches for this) with a 1889 box mag. It has me baffled.

There is no rear sight, but the receiver appears to have been tapped for mounts both on the top and side. It is also in the ugliest sport stock I have seen...

Some pictures I took a while back. http://imgur.com/a/XJrvl

Let me know if you have any kind of trade in mind, depending, I would be happy to toss in cash for something interesting. This is of course C&R.


Some thoughts from GunBoat

It may be one of the '89s converted by golden state arms to 30/30 - done about 1960 -
There was a flock of them imported then and not much ammo.
The ammo is indeed different from gp-11 and should not be fired in the '89 --
I believe the '89 bore is also a few thou smaller at .304 --

It is chambered for the Swiss ammo. I had a friend with guages test it. I really don't know anything else.

bump. Price drop to $100. I will keep it for anything less.

While the Swiss GP11 ammo will chamber in the rifle, it was NOT designed to shoot it, and to do so would be unsafe. Needs lower pressure ammo.

bump......For less than $100 I might as well keep it. It is a neat conversation piece. Sailinganfd was nice enough to sell this to me cheap. Considering the price of gas, plus what I paid him. I'm not making much.

I won't bump this again, because I do like the uniquness of it.

With a bit of effort you can reload for it - might be a good shooter
Probably have to cast your own though --
While I made my cases from 30/06 good boxer brass is now available -

if you'd ship it i'd buy it. definitely looks to be an 1889, which would certainly be unsafe with gp11 ammo. it'd be tough to restore but definitely worth it for something this weird. shame it was D&T'd but whatever.
