Argentine Modelo 1909 Cavalry Carbine
The stock has been repaired at butt. Receiver and bolt mismatched. See Photos.
In 1909, Argentina adopted new firearms to replace their 1891 model rifles and carbines. Dubbed the Modelo (model) 1909, the new rifles and carbines were based upon the 98 Mauser rifle design and chambered in the Belgian 7.65x53 Mauser cartridge.
The Argentine Modelo 1909 Cavalry carbine pictured above was manufactured by the Deutsche Waffen und Munitions Fabriken, Berlin, Germany (German Arms and Ammunition Factories, Berlin, Germany), also known as DWM, under contract for Argentina. Later model 1909 carbines were also manufactured in Argentina.
The 1909 Cavalry carbine is a 98 Mauser with a few variances:
* Hinged floor plate, with a release in the front of the trigger guard;
* Shorter length;
* Front sight with protective ears;
* Tangent rear sight;
* Extended bolt release lever; and a
* Full-length Mannlicher style stock.
This a C&R rifle serial number 06362.
