Just how well does this old Schmidt Rubin 1889 Swiss Rifle actually shoot?
Well, sit back. You are in for quite a surprise from a 120-year-old rifle. Youtuber MurpheysMuskets takes a really close look at the Schmidt Rubin 1889 Swiss Rifle.
This early-production Schmidt Rubin 1889 Swiss Rifle is a very old rifle. It is, however, a great shooter.
This rifle has a quick, straight pull action and is charged with 12 cartridges from a stripper clip. With handloaded ammunition, Youtuber MurpheysMuskets has put in his research to develop the perfect load that hits hard but is quite safe to fire in this older rifle.
