Argentine Model 1891 Cavalry Carbine by Loewe

  • Maker: Argentine
  • Model: 1891
  • Caliber: 7.65mm

  • Description: Serial #B0787, 7.65mm Mauser, 18 barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is a handsome carbine that has all-matching numbers, including the bolt and magazine floorplate, and retains 70-75% of the original blue with the balance having mild surface freckling, as well as some gray fading and silvering along the high edges and surfaces. The bolt latch has visible traces of the original bright fire bluing, while the bolt has a mottled, pewter gray patina with dark patches on the handle. The full-length stock and short handguard have numerous small handling marks and minor blemishes in the original oil finish, and the otherwise bright buttplate has scattered spots of dark brown surface oxidation. An original brass muzzle-cover is also included. This is a very good-fine example of a desirable, full-stocked Mauser carbine. Antique
