1909 Mauser

Post by Hippycrowe »

Is this a pretty tight bore for an Arginine mauser it's less than 2.5 on muzzle gauge and doesn't swallow a 30-06 ap bullet headspace too. All matching

My 1909 was the very first rifle I ever purchased for myself at 18 years old. Paid $49 for it with 2 boxes of Norma ammo and a handful of stripper clips. I still have the rifle and the strippers! Mine is also all matching including the cleaning rod. It's a letter C prefix which puts it's production around Feb or March 1910. Does yours have it's crest? Mine was very lightly ground and after some careful polishing it became clearly visible. The 7.65x53 is a great round, about the power of a .308 but with mild recoil in that heavy long barreled rifle. It will eventually become part of my estate as I'll never let it go on my own. - Bill

After the floor plate design of the 1909 came out it makes me wonder why every Mauser that followed didn't come with it. Its perfection in my opinion. - Bill
