"SWISS MONDRAGON MODEL 1908 MILITARY ISSUE SEMI AUTOMATIC RIFLE. SN 2578. Cal. 7 mm. Mr. Stern's notes state this Swiss Mondragon was most probably made by Sig Neuhausen. It is all blued finish with a bright bolt and has a small detachable snail drum magazine that is retained by a spring loaded latch that is permanently attached to the magazine wall. Charging handle has a swivel locking mechanism to lock the gas system for semi auto fire or to unlock the system for manual operation. The front sight is unguarded and the rear sight is graduated from 400 to 2,000 meters. Piece is profusely proofed and many parts have a heart-shaped proof mark but there is still no maker name on it. Piece appears to be matching, or at least the bolt assembly and receiver are. For some reason that I do not know, there is a number "81.5" stamped in the wood just above the magazine well on the left hand side. Having not seen another one I do not know whether any other parts are numbered. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: All blued metal parts of this rifle including the receiver, rear cap, bands, bbl, and gas system retain better than 98% original blue finish. The bolt is bright and is just starting to patina. The buttplate is blued, showing slight wear on the high edges only, most probably from being loaded in and out of a rack. The drum magazine shows about 70% blue with speckling and patina. The upper handguard shows excellent with just a couple of small dings in it and varnish on it. The buttstock assembly shows good with some dings towards the rear and what appears to be either a small repair or a scratch in the varnish on the left side towards the bottom just behind the bbl band. Bore shows bright and shiny and bore and bolt face show very little signs of ever being fired. Cocking handle show some patina. 4-34127 CATALOG137 (2,500-4,000)"
