Very interesting about prices in CH

Hello,



I have often commented about how prices and availability are overseas for both U.S. manufactured, foreign and surplus arms. On the www.swissrifles.com website, I was able to download a catalogue of arms and accessories that would rival any distributor in the United States.



So, I wanted to take the opportunity to share this information with the forum. Remember, the prices are in Swiss Francs and some of the language is in French. However, if you can calculate today's rate of exchange, then you might be impressed....of one U.S dollar equaling .9625 Swiss Francs.....



The distributor/range is in the Western part of Swizerland and is close to lake Nuechatel where I traveled several years ago.

It is a rather large file to download to view, but it about the same size as most distributors in the U.S.



Best,



Chris

Very interesting about prices in CH

Hello Chris,



as we discussed together, this dealer has very good prices by swiss standards. He does a lot of import/export of surplus with the US and East Europa. At gun shows, his table (or better 10 m. wide lobby) is always crowded. For sure, he does a lot of business!



With long searches, it is sometime possible to find even better deals by some gunsmiths but these are lonely pieces. For exemple, I saw once a NIB S&W M14 in Bern for 400 francs. I didn't catch it because I'm not in long barrels. It didn't stay for long by the dealer...



We have a gun show in the area on the beginning of december. Like for past editions, I will probably post a report about it.
