Swiss Bubba’s Martini Jagdstutzer (NOT a Martini-Henry Sniper Rifle from BF1!)

Join us on the App!

There’s all manner of Martini actioned single shot target rifles and hunting rifles around in Switzerland as left-overs from the era when they dominated the shooting sports. This is a fairly interesting one, converted from a target rifle to a scoped hunting rifle by Swiss Bubba (Bäbbu?). It’s in 7.5×55 GP11, but Martinis are often also found in 7.5×53.5 GP90, 10.4mm Vetterli and various hunting calibres such as 10.4x60R. Battlefield 1 is turning into a thick vein of Neofuddlore though!
