After World War II, Waffenfabrik Bern experimented with rifles largely based on the German FG-42. This example uses a short 7.5mm cartridge similar to the German 8×33 (other prototypes used a short 7.65mm or the full size 7.5x55mm round). The mechanism uses a long gas piston and hinged lock to secure the breech. It fired both semi and fully automatic, both from a closed bolt.
