Q: Where Can I Get a Swiss 1911 Clamp-On Scope Mount?
A: As precise and rigid as the Schmidt-Rubin straight-pull rifles are, the Swiss Products clamp-on scope mount facilitates the use of optics with Swiss Model 1911 military rifles and “K11” carbines. The mounting system will work with some earlier models as well, including the 1889, 1896, 1897 Kadet, and 1896/11 model rifles and can be removed to put your rifle back in original condition. Installation is quick, and requires only removal of the two action screws at the bottom of the rifle (located fore and aft of the magazine well).
Longer replacement screws are provided to attach the mount, which features a neatly offset rail for scope rings. Collectors will appreciate the timely aesthetic of the mount and enjoy the fact that it is manufactured in the United States by Swiss Products, LLC, in Kalispell, Mont.
