    Default M78 Swiss Vetterli Rifle

    Model 1878 Rifle




    Barrel Length: 33.1 inches
    Overall Length: 52.2 inches
    Weight: 10.1 lbs empty
    Chambering: 10.4x38 (.41) Swiss Rimfire
    Velocity: 1425 fps
    Capacity: 12 round tube magazine
    Total Production: ~100,000
    Manufacture Dates: 1878-1881 Eidgenössische Waffenfabrik, Bern

    This rifle does not include the cleaning rod or bayonet. It has some minor surface rust, the action is a little sticky but does operate (probably due to OLD dried up whale oil), and I have never fired this gun. It is possible to convert this to a centerfire, but this remains untouched. It fires a .41 cal rimfire cartridge, which cost about as much as the gun if you can find it.

    The serial # is 196814, and all #'s match throughout the gun. As far as I know, because if it's age this does NOT have to be shipped through an FFL.

    Asking price is $300 OBO (Let me repeat Or Best Offer)
    Would prefer a face to face sale in the Paducah, Murray, Mayfield, Benton area, but will ship, buyer to pay shipping.

    Call (270) 293-8531 for any questions.
