M1889 Vetterli Rifle... own a piece of history!
At the time of their introduction in 1869, the Vetterli Rifles were the most advanced military rifles in Europe. Designed by Johann-Friedrich Vetterli, they were the first repeating rifle to use self-cocking action. They also borrowed the extremely successful tubular magazine first introduced by the famous Winchester® Model 1866.
In the hands of a trained operator, the Vetterli could fire 21 rounds per minute! These particular Rifles were used by the Swiss Army up until 1890.
