1, The K31
The Swiss are known for fondue, bank accounts on the down low and high-end watches. What they are also known for are precisely engineered firearms constructed with close tolerances, old world practices, and elegant lines. Even though they are a small country, with a population the size of the state of New Jersey, they put a 500,000-man army in the field to stay free and independent during WWII (well, officially).
The rifle they carried was the Karabiner Model 1931 (K31). This breech-loading military rifle used an interesting straight-pull bolt action over a 6-shot detachable magazine.
