Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - DWM -- 1909 Argentine Mauser 7.65 Argentine

Rifle offered is from an estate and is an Argentine Mauser by Waffenbrik-Mauser Oberndorf done in 7.65 Argentine (7.65X53) which still has the original issue barrel even though the rifle has been sporterized. It comes with a 4X32 scope bearing trade name Monoscope which is mounted with Weaver style rings and bases. The rifle appears to have the original military trigger. The stock, which I would almost bet is an old Fajen, has been glass bedded for the action however there is a feather crack on the left side which does extend into the magazine well of the wood. It should be a fairly easy fix with a little Acraglas. It is missing the rear sling swivel post. Mechanically, the rifle is in splendid condition. It has a beautiful bore, nice and shiny with very heavy rifling with nice sharp shoulders. It has truly got a great pipe on it. Cosmetically, the rifle has been reblued. There are some small spots on the surfaces which should not be there but, unfortunately, in the owner’s declining years he simply wasn’t able to tend to his gun pile like he should have. The wood, beyond the crack mentioned above, has not been all beat up but the gun has been hunted. All said, pretty solid rifle which if looked after, should give great service. Please ask any questions you might have and I will respond as best I am able.

Payment and Shipping Instructions:
Weapon is to be transferred through an FFL holder. Winner pays only the actual shipping fees as I am not into making money using the “Flat Rate” thing. Once I learn the shipping information I will create an estimate + a few bucks to be certain. Once the weapon is shipped I will return any unused funds by next day mail and email scanned copies of the shipping documents to the winner. I greatly prefer to use the Post Office as they won’t simply drop the package of on the doorstep and leave it. In addition, they are often times less expensive than FedEx and UPS. Having made that point, I will use any express service the winner prefers. Personal checks are absolutely welcome as long as the winner understands I will have to withhold shipping until certain the check has cleared. Certified checks/money orders get next day service.
Payment Methods:

Money Orders,  Personal Checks,  Cashiers Checks,

 United Parcel Service  United States Postal Service  FedEx

Questions for Users
    Q:  Note: the barrel of an Argentine is 7.65 (303/311) not 7.62 (300/308). This means that normal 30 cal (300) ammo is a bit loose in the bore. Either that or you have to re-load with 303 bullets to make it shoot well. - at least that's what they taught us in gun school. Question: does the bolt stop (lever on left rear side of the receiver) have the "wrap over" or has the "wrap over" been removed to look more like a regular Mauser? This part is unique to the argentine but is usually removed when a scope is installed. I am looking for a good action to build a custom from, so this might be a good option for me. Thanks Doug 05/07/2012
        A:  Doug-not real certain where your concern about the bore not being 7.62 comes from as the add does state it has the original 7.65 barrel installed. I do think I understand what you might be looking for with the bolt stop so I took an additional photo and figuired ouit how to add it to the auction. If there are any other photos you think might help let me know and I can add them as well. 05/08/2012
    Q:  Could you send more photos of the stampings on the receiver? Has the crest been scrubbed? thanks 05/13/2012
        A:  Added several more pictures-tried as best I could to get markings for you. The crest is still on the receiver however it appears the holes for the mount machine screws are probably through it. Hope this is what you were looking for. 05/14/2012
    Q:  I just noticed that the crown of this gun shows the Peruvian crest, not the argentinian. (per the pictures). the bolt latch is argentinian. Just thought I'd let you know. THanks Doug 05/17/2012
        A:  Good information-thanks. I am obviously not a 1909 afficianado. 05/17/2012
    Q:  Do you know if the action etc is the same as a 1891 or did they do some change,s to the 1909 model Thank,s Dan. 05/29/2012
        A:  I don't have a clue. I'd bet there were some changes. 05/30/2012
    Q:  Do you have a FFL, my dealer only takes guns from FFL holders? Thanks 06/04/2012
        A:  Yes 06/04/2012
