Default 9mm 06/29

I am cleaning out a pile of WWII era handguns that belonged to my Dad and posting them on Guns international. I was photographing a Swiss 06/29 and noticed the bore looked larger than .30 Upon measuring it I found it to be 9mm. The barrel measures 4 3/4" and appears to match the finish and wear of the frame. The top of the barrel flange is stamped with the BP Bern military proof and the bottom has the Swiss cross proof about 1/2" forward of the flange. The index marks match perfectly and the front sight is exactly at 12 O'clock. The bore is perfect as is the internal machining to the frame ramp and finish. The serial number is 581XX and this piece feeds and shoots perfectly. My first five shots at 25yds were under 1" and 2" low from the X. I have found a lot confusion on line relating to this topic and hoped to gain some clarification.

You seem to have described it well, but what is the question?
It has obviously been re-barreled to 9mm.

I guess that doesn't seem obvious to me. It appears to be a correct barrel with expected proofs. Did the Swiss do this type of re-barreling? Were there aftermarket barrels available with correct proofs for rebarrelling

Short answer- yes.
Since it was the Swiss military that did the "work" they would of course have the correct markings. Swiss lugers were re-worked and re-used; and often reworked and then sold out of service.

9mm versions are not common, but have been posted here before, perhaps a search for 9mm Swiss luger would pull them up; or one of the collectors of Swiss lugers will comment further.
