I have a few Mausers but they are not my main focus. Today I guess I became a carbine collector or at least on the way. First is a 1909 Argentine, second is a 1891 Argentine and a 1901 ? (help a newbe out here) in 7mm. All three from the same dealer before he takes a load to a gunshow.

I have the twin to the bottom carbine. I was always told it was a 95 Argy Cavalry carbine. Nice set you got!

The third one has got me puzzled...?

I don't think the Argentines contracted any 93's or 95's. Could it be Spanish?

I didn't have time to go through Ball's book last night and going to a large gun show this afternoon. May have some time tomorrow to check and post more photos. I liked the feel and the price was right.

Yeah man! Looks like you "bowed up" and became a carbine collector in one swoop!

Good job amigo!

Of the top of my head I would say the bottom one is an 1895 Spanish carbine.

Man, you are good! 1895 Spanish carbine is what it is. Ball-page 219 has one with the sling bar at the wrist. Mine had a wood inlay where it should be. This is the place to go for information.
