    Swiss Model 1869/71 Vetterli Repeating Rifle. Cal. 10.4 x 38 Rimfire. Serial Number 35624. All visible numbers matching. "Bellefontaine Berne/ Cordier & Cie" marked on the left side of the receiver. Numerous Swiss military proofs elsewhere. Original finish worn to a uniform brown patina with some old surface rust. Walnut stock with the usual wear commensurate with military use. Bright bore. There are the remains of an old paper label on the right side of the butt stock. These rifles have become very scarce in recent years because of a great demand for them on the Swiss market.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
