    I agree.

    SA, there should be Swiss shield on the receiver, should have been able to identify it that way. Didn't see a pic of the receiver.

    Link to Swiss models: http://www.swissrifles.com/sr/index.html

    It might be a different model, I'm guessing on the 1911 a little bit.

    I remember when I was a teenager in the mid 60's the local Coast to Coast store
    had these in barrels. $5 or so for functional, maybe $8 for select grade.

    Nope... It's Swiss (as others have confirmed as well). I would've had trouble with the ID past that, but luckily others knew more than me about the swiss firearms.

    A few dealers have offered some other swiss bolt actions recently, for around $100. Cheap for the rifle, but the ammo will be harder to find (odd swiss sizes).

    The Kadet version is very rare. As such it brings a premium price many times what a shooter would bring. That is strictly a collector piece. Shooting it would be a rare occasion.

    As long as it isn't a K31, which many dealers have cheap, often $200 or less. Here is one at the bottom of the page:
