The Swiss straight pulls I mentioned eject straight up out of the receiver and forward over the muzzle. At least that is what happens when you work the action with a modicum of energy. A weak pull will send the case flying off in an unintended direction....Felt a bit odd to work the straight pull, and it ejects out the "wrong" side!
The joy of the Swiss straight pulls is the superb trigger. The M1911/K11 trigger differs significantly from the K31's, but both still provide the absolute best 2-stage trigger action of any contemporary issue military rifle. (Note: my Swedes and Finn Mosin Nagants have great triggers too, but typically require a couple minutes of honing the sear and striker faces.)Trigger pull was good for a military rifle of the period, and the stock fir me well enough, although I found the wrist too thick for real comfort.
OK, "J" can understand the archaic use of "J" for "I" but why not "RG11" = Repetiergewehr 1911?I always assumed people started writing that because the old timey “I” looked like a “J”, so it’s the same old “IG11” (Infanterie Gewehr?) they say in Switzerland, but maybe I assumed wrong.
Mike, it's a bit more involved than that but as for comparison with optics, we're the ones that actually manufacture the mounts for Diopters, the Diopters themselves and Scope optics for those rifles, so we spent a lot of time working with and without, but all of our shooting is done from an Accurite Rest which takes the human out of the equation altogether. Using that, the rifles are forced to perform on their own merits without anyone touching them.
At what range were these targets shot? As an artilleryman, I see these results a bit differently. We artillerymen think of dispersion in terms of "CEP" - circular error of probability. The artllery CEP is a circle flat on the ground, and the statistic is the number of rounds that land inside the circle vs. the ones that land outside. So "CEP" takes into account, and combines, range probable error and lateral dispersion. The rifle targets above are akin to CEP targets, only vertical instead of horizontal.
