1891 ARGENTINE LONG RIFLE (MAUSER)  Guns > Rifles > Military Misc. Rifles Non-US > Other
Description: Up for auction from a private collection is a beautiful example of what I consider the most elegant military bolt action rifle ever designed: the 1891 Argentine Mauser infantry long rifle. This was, at the time, the high-water mark for military rifle design in the world. The Argentine government purchased from Mauser in Germany the finest military rifle of its day. The pictures pretty well tell the story: wood is in terrific condition and the bluing is on a par. Bore and headspace are both good. This all-original (except for crest on receiver which was routinely ground off at time of export) example is in remarkably good condition. As you might expect, it shoots as good as it looks: these rifles were known for their accuracy and smooth action. They shoot a 7.65x53mm cartridge, which is still readily available. I believe this was Paul Mauser's first modern bolt action design, and it was a good one-- only bettered by the later '98 design. No need to remind anyone that good examples of 19th Century military arms are not getting any easier to find. These are great shooters, but not only that: they are classic examples of German engineering and craftsmanship at its best.
