A very nice set of Swiss M.1817/42(/59) Rifles. They were converted by the Swiss to the M.1842 standard, and one was further upgraded to the M.1859 model. They both have a low S/N of #217. The earlier one has a nice Swiss shield stamping next to the S/N. The other has “BF” inspector stampings on almost all parts. This very rare set is an excellent chance to add a unique set to your collection!.
Metal Condition: All the metal is in the white with some light wear. Amazing they survived so well over the years. Stock/Grips Condition: The stock of the early rifle has a carved cheek rest with “CC217” engraved into it. It shows normal wear. The other stock is in very good shape. The wood is smooth with light handling marks. The wood has pinholes in it, but no other issues. A truly beautiful sight to see. Bore: No bulges, cracks, splits, or other issues were found. Action: The lockwork is fully working on both rifles. A sign of the craftsmanship of them both. Included Accessories: And original, two piece ramrod comes with the early rifle. An original socket bayonet comes with the newer rifle. Curios & Relic Eligible: ANTIQUE Serial Number #217
