Please help identify this rifle. I picked up a few oldies from my parent's place this past weekend. Thanks a lot everyone.

The close up reads SOC. IND. Suisse. Syst. Vetterlin - the serial 97754. The words wrap around a small cross.

I would not mess with that cat, rifle or no rifle.

She always lays on the rifles if I have them out...some sort of possessive thing.

And you probably ask for permission to get a rifle from her too, right?

Until she sprays it or sharpens her claws on the wood.
