    Default SIG AMT and other weapons of Switzerland

    At the top we have a officer's presentation SIG 210 in 9mm in a Alligator skin case. The cleaning kit in the case is dated 1950.

    Below that is a SIG AMT rifle, in 7.62x51 mm NATO.
    Below the AMT we have three pistols. From left to right the first is another model 210, in the middle is a 1970s vintage German made Mauser, however since those were made on the original Swiss tooling, I have lumped it with other Swiss arms. Note there is no swelling on the front strap as you have with the German made Luger pistols. The next pistol on the carry bag is a Danish Contract M-49 variant of the SIG 210. This one was heavily customized into an ideal carry gun by the late Joe Bonar of Novak's. It has a 1911 style push button mag release as opposed to the original Swiss heel release design. Great shooter.

    Below the pistols we have two Swiss K-31 straight pull rifles in 7.5x53mm.

    Nice AMT... Pretty uncommon in the U.S., aren't they?

    The Sig-Amt is the most beautiful battle type rifle ever produced. A few years ago I passed up one with six mags and a scope mount for 2,800 dollars because I thought that was too much to pay for a rifle. They go for over 5 grand now and I have been kicking myself ever since.

    Afraid I don't have a 57.

    I won't tell you what I paid for mine, other than to say it was less than half the figure you put up, but at the time my wife was ready to kill me for spending so much on a gun. Very glad I did it, but for months I was in the dog house.

    Nice stuff! Let's move it even further back in time with the Vetterli 1869/71:

    Sweet, that was the most advanced arm of it's day. At one time I had an '89 but let her go.
