    1891 Argentine Mausers

    Been a long time, but I got these out yesterday as I heard the carbines normally had their crests, where the long rifles had been scrubbed of their crests.
    I wanted to be sure that was the case with mine and it was. The carbines are Engr and Cav version. You can see where the Cav version lacks bayonet
    lug and front attachment for it.

    Those are nice looking rifles. Is ammo hard to source for those?

    Might be a little difficult to find locally (depending on your sources). Privi Partizan and Hornady (likely others too) make 7.65 Argentine ammo and
    can usually get it fairly easy online. I bought mine thru AIM.

    When you look at the workmanship of the 1891 - 1909 Argentine rifles.. you can see the Money and influence Argentina had at that time

    They went to tremendous cost to purchase the Latest 7.65mm rifle ammo.. They had Mauser finished the arms to near Art status. (the 1909 may be the most

    beautiful finish ever put on a standard military arm).. There are so many wonderful variations on that rifle line.. Less not forget Monkey Wards added their own Version to the market..

    And then some of the Special School Crests Argentina took time to purchase and mark their Mausers with..

    Hey all! Just want to say that I've found so much good information on this site. You have some really amazing people in here to help all of us who might not have the knowledge. I wanted to share a Picture of mine. Sporterized, yet well cared for 1891 (1893 Manufacture)
    Argentine Mauser.
    I had issues with finding ammo cheap. So my buddy asked if I wanted to change the caliber. I said ok. He put on an Israeli Browning 1919 Machine gun barrel, in .308. Also built up the rear sight to make it easier to find the target. Shoots about .4 MOA at 100 yards. Not many people miss a second shot at that range. Now it has a heavy barrel and free floating as a bonus. Happens to be my favorite rifle I have EVER owned.
    Have a great day!

    That looks sweet. I’m a sucker for heavy barreled rifles. Any concerns with 7.62/.308 pressures in the 91 action?
