OK, I'm bored. It's Sunday afternoon, I''m waiting for two rifles to be delivered, and I have nothing new to take photos of at the moment. Here are some old photos of Argentines for your enjoyment.

Starting with a M1891 long rifle:

Regards,
Bill

Each of us approaches collecting a little differently. I would much rather have a good condition rifle with a crest than an excellent condition one with a scrubbed crest. I pretty much avoid scrubbed crests altogether.

And I don't normally have but one of a type - unless they have different crests.

Bill

Geladen, you should get bored more often! Very nice collection! Just have 2, myself: the first is an 1899 M1891 and the second is a 1910 M1909.

All you need now is a Arg 1909 sniper.
That, and a M1909 engineer carbine, a M1933 short rifle, a M1935 short rifle, an FN1930 carbine, and an FN1930 short rifle. And a Rolling Block. And a variety of pistols.

There's no end to it. And Argentina is only one country.

Regards,
Bill

Very nice, they look like they were made yesterday.

All my Mausers (nearly half of my collection) are in the sticky "Mausers, Only Mausers". There is an index in the first post.

Hi John,

Looks like battle damage but I don't see how that could be. Argentina was only involved in border skirmishes during the Chaco War and they had no other war during the time they used the Mausers.

Maybe your bayonet saw Paraguayan service.

Bill
