Swiss Straight-Pulls #5: 1897 Kadettengewehr

So moving on with the Swiss straight-pulls series, we get up to the Schmidt-Rubin 1897 Kadettengewehr, the Cadet rifle. This might seem an irrelevant branch of the family, but it really isn’t. It’s the basis for another, more interesting one, which will come later. As a reminder, we’re still in the 7.5×53.5mm era, making our way slowly towards the K11, G11 and K31 – but we’re still a few rifles off.
