Mauser Argentine Model 1891 cavalry carbine. Marked “Mauser Modelo Argentino 1891., Manufactura Loewe Berlin” on left side of receiver, has a crisp Argentine crest at top of the receiver, chambered in 7.65x53mm Argentine Mauser, 17.7″ barrel. This was built as a military carbine–it is not a cut-down rifle. It is still in its original configuration. Matching serial number A368X on barrel, receiver, and magazine. Bolt has a mis-matched serial number with a C-prefix. (That is typical.) Possibly reblued. Bluing is all quite nice except for one blotch on the buttplate. Stock and handguard have been nicely refinished, and have just a few very light handling marks. Two neatly filled sling swivel holes at the bottom of the buttstock. Bore is very nice, with sharp rifling, and just a bit grayed. These are hard to find in this condition, with an intact crest! This handy length and lightweight carbine should make a great deer-class practical shooter.
Mauser 1895 Chilean contract (Ludwig Loewe, circa 1895 or 1896) Mauser that has been converted to a .45 ACP sporter carbine using a Rhineland Arms conversion kit. Uses standard M1911 magazines! Three Colt 6-round magazines and one 8-round Colt-made stainless steel .45 ACP magazines are included. Feeds from M1911 magazines, with difficulty. Fiberglass stock. 16.5″ barrel is new in the white, with threaded muzzle and thread protector. An XS Clifton 6″ long Scout (forward) scope mount Picatinny scope base has been installed. (Accepts any Picatinny-compatible rings or optics.) This will make a great suppressor host. Barrel, action, and scope base have been freshly Cerakoted in MagPul OD green, with contrasting brown Cerakote on the stock. The bolt still has a worn blued finish. (LAM-089)
