That is a desirable rifle in the set-trigger configuration. Many of the Vetterli rifles had very nice wood too. Go to the Swiss Rifle forum for much more information.

That's a new one on me. Nice rifle with extraordinary wood.

At one time I had about 14 Swiss Vetterli rifles, and that site was extremely helpful. I converted some to centerfire and formed brass cases. There were some rifles on that forum that had wood like yours. I have ONE that has wood with some figure. The set-trigger Stutzers are quite expensive, always wanted one.

Here the "full on loads" doing its thing. Fired by a string and us covered by the car.

As the rounds had been fired i pushed a dry patch through there...and as the saying goes,the proof is in the pudding.
Difference is like night and day. Be aware that Wasag generally is considered a real "dirty" burning black powder. Extraction was as simple for the first as the last round.
