Once again, with another good rifle deal.
Perhaps you have heard of the Schmidt Rubin rifle from Switzerland? TheyÃ¯Â¿Â½re bolt action rifles with a unique straight pull type bolt.
As with most things from Switzerland, theyÃ¯Â¿Â½re finely made, reliable, have an immaculate attention to detail and are very accurate.
At AIM Surplus, theyÃ¯Â¿Â½re also dirt f*cking cheap.
A 6rnd detachable box magazine that can also be fed by stripper clips, excellent sights and that wonderful straight pull bolt, you just canÃ¯Â¿Â½t go wrong.
And as Kim du Toit stated in this Gratuitous Gun Post, Ã¯Â¿Â½IÃ¯Â¿Â½ve never spoken to anyone whoÃ¯Â¿Â½s regretted buying a Schmidt-Rubin.Ã¯Â¿Â½
The only real downside to these rifles is the caliber theyÃ¯Â¿Â½re chambered in, 7.5×55. The caliber itself is excellent, but it usually runs $25-30 a box.
Not at AIM though,
When I finally have all my accessories for the Boomershoot together, I will be buying at least one, probably two, of these rifles and at least one, probably two, of the 480rnd battlepacks of ammo ($168) per gun.
You should too.
Even with a 25% dealer fee added to the price of the rifle, theyÃ¯Â¿Â½re still only $100 for a rifle that will probably shoot as accurately, if not more so, as a factory Remington, Winchester, Ruger, Savage, etc.
