German produced + Swedish steel + Swedish designed cartridge = Swiss?Must be new math.
The Swedes were very particular, that is true. The early guns Mauserwerke produced for Sweden, before the Swedes could tool up for production were either of Swedish supplied steel, or of the formula Sweden demanded contractually. Don't quite see how this equals Switzerland.
Itmakes absolutely perfect sense. I don't know why you are having such a problem with this. I had a brain fart and made a mistake.

Yeah, I thought I made one once, but I was wrong...

Wasn't trying to hammer you, was wondering what I missed!

Agreed. I have never seen a Mauser-type rifle that was made in Switzerland, but I have seen a couple of custom sporting rifles made on German-made Mauser actions by Swiss gunsmiths in Switzerland chambered for an obscure, obsolete Swiss cartridge (the 9.3X53mm SWISS, a round that fires a 200-grain .365" bullet at 2000 FPS - very similar in performance to the .35 Remington). The rimless version of this round, which a Mauser would use, appears to be made from the 7.5X55 mm Swiss Schmidt-Rubin case with neck expanded to use .365" bullets....
