The 1896/11 was the modernization of the standard model 1896, which was an improvement over the previous standard Swiss infantry rifle, the 1889. The groundbreaking redesign of the Schmidt rifle was primarily driven by the desire to adopt the powerful new Model 1911 cartridge for infantry use. In addition to modernizing their old rifles, in 1913, the Model 1911 was formally adopted. These rifles, along with those converted to the new pattern, fired the new GP11 round. The GP11 round fired a 175 grain round at 2640 fps, a major advancement in its day requiring significant strengthening of the receiver and materials. The 1911 possessed all the improvements listed above. The GP11 was, and still is, an exceptional cartridge, and would remain a mainstay of the Swiss military for the next 75 years.
