Swiss Vetterli M1871 rifle. Serial number 99818. Blued parts are very fine with minimal wear to the original finish. Case colored parts are mostly a light patina with a little faded color visible in places. Stock is very good, showing light wear and use, with an old varnished finish added. Wood surfaces show some minor handling marks, but are free of cracks and chips. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
