Just saw this rifle for sale at the LGS / shooting range. Not something you see every day.

What a fine piece of equipment! I see the over-sized trigger shoe, over-travel stop, adjustable gas block, and folding stock. Is it chambered in 7.62x51 or something else. Does it come with a scope mount at that price? I think I could learn to love that rifle!

It’s chambered for the GP 90, which is the Swiss version of the 5.56 NATO



I didn’t ask if it comes with the scope mount, my guess is it doesn’t

I believe that price (5800 CHF) is in Swiss Francs, right? Google tells me the Franc is now trading a 0.98 USD per Franc so that is a rather expensive gun ($5684).

Is that range/LGS in Switzerland?

Yes both the rifle and I live in Switzerland

I’ve read only 19 were imported in the USA before the ‘89 assault rifle ban. They probably go for 20’000 and above. In Switzerland it’s cheaper.

Here’s Ian’s video about it

I have one coming up for auction. The finest example ever sold here in the US. Complete, all matching, transit case, factory target, ZEISS Diavari-Z 2.5-10x52 Scope, and more.

The pre-bidding is available now, but the auction will take place March 7th.

We're located in Travelers Rest, SC and the auction will take place Live & Online.

The link to the gun is below, from there you can get to the entire catalog (couldnt put a real link)

Nice, thanks for posting

In case you didn’t know, KAPO ZÜRICH means Kantonal Polizei Zürich, i.e. Zürich state police (Zürich is both Switzerland’s largest city and a state).

So it’s a police surplus, which adds to the interest in my opinion
