    I've always had a thing for Argentine Maus...ah hell...who am I kidding, let's face it, I've always had a thing for almost any vintage military rifle. :)

    This last weekend I glommed four new Mausers and a Mauser action with a fluted stainless bull barrel of unknown caliber at an auction. The complete rifles were a Yugo 24/52C, a Persian 98/29, a Swedish M38, and this '09 Argentine cavalry carbine.

    I've got a number of '09's, most in a little better condition than this one, but this is the only DGFM Argentine-made Mauser that I have.

    metaldoesn't look too bad, wood is a little rough. But that seems to be par for the course with the DGFM mausers

    Nice score. I have a 1909 and a 1891 but not one of those. I was a cheapskate when they were available at a reasonable price.....chris3

    Thanks, guys.

    The funny thing is, these were probably the most expensive Mausers ever built. The Argentines built a factory in the 1940's to build them and then built about 20,000 of them, before ending production after realizing that the future of military rifles was not the bolt action.
