Check out the Swiss M78 Vetterli .41 RF Bolt Action Rifle From the 1870s [VIDEO]

The Swiss M78 Vetterli is quite an interesting rifle way back from the 1870s.

The M78 Vetterli fired .41 rimfire ammunition from a fast cycling bolt action rifle.

Watch as this old war horse has new life breathed into it.

This old Swiss military rifle is one very cool piece of history. The Swiss M78 Vetterli is a quick firing bolt action rifle that was revolutionary in the 1870s.

It fired a .41 caliber rimfire cartridge. It’s just like your .22 long rifle rimfire cartridge but twice as big.

This rimfire rifle was a big more lead delivery system. Though .41 rimfire cartridges are obsolete now, this rifle can be converted to centerfire and shot once again.
