Argentine 1909 Rifle / 7.65 Arg
« on: May 05, 2013, 07:20:36 PM »
    I have not seen an '09 Argentine, but the pictures sure look pretty. I am a big fan of the cartridge. I have a '91 DWM in 98% pristine condition. The fit and finish is impeccable.
    Ammo is hard to find and expensive when you do, but I have found that brass is easily formed from 8mm cases. I have harvested several deer and an elk with this gun.
    The upside of the '09 is that it is built on the classic '98 action. If I found one in good condition I would love to make it mine.

   Hello all,
   I recently purchased a Carl Gustafs M96 stamped 1900. It is almost entirely
intact with matching numbers on at least 12 separate parts. The stock disc
indicates a tight bore (6.51) in #1 condition, but of course that was many years ago and it has been messed with. The receiver has been drilled and tapped for modern sporter scope mounts  :-\  and the bolt handle is turned down. Whoever did the bolt handle did a nice job.
   Also, several parts (barrel bands and springs, trigger guard and floorplate, rear hand guard ring, sling swivel, and buttplate) are nickel plated. I don't think this is original, and if not I would like to return it to it's original look.
   Original or not, the plating is deteriorated and I need to do something to
clean it up. Any advice will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
