7.65x53 Argentine Mauser 1891
 
I am thinking about getting a 7.65x53 Argentine 1891 to add to my collection. I already have a 1909. Anyone have one? What are your thoughts, experiences, etc. Are they easy to reload? Do you make brass from '06 brass? etc.

I hope it is in the US already. Mausers are considered war weapons, which are illegal to bring into the country for us normal civilians. I asked about bringing a German Mauser to the states. I was told no. I know someone who had to leave his M1 in Germany. You can bring an M1 or AR15 to Germany and take back to states, but you need prove you purchased the weapon in the states. i.e a bill of sale. Key word is purchased. This is not a German law, it is US law.

Well yeah...Importing ANY firearm into the US requires an importers licence.

True, but not if it is your personal weapons. I have brought handguns to the states with me and I did not need importers license. I filled out paperwork, but not for an import license.

Well, thanks for answering my questions about the 1891 Argentine Mauser. If someone else wants to chime in on something totally off the subject, I guess it is ok to do so.

Thanks for your response Tom. I am planning on making brass from '06 too. I will get an RCBS form and trim die, run the 06 brass through it, trim off the excess, resize through the 7.65x53 dies and usable brass should be the result. Any more info you can give on your experiences with the 91 Argentine would be appreciated.

I have an Argentine mauser 1891 that I recently purchased at a pawn shop...Prvi and norma make ammo for it...locating brass can be a problem...like stated I bought 40 rounds of Norma and 60 rounds of Prvi so I would have brass to reload....funny the 40 rounds of loaded Norma was about the same price as just the unloaded Norma brass..go figure

Great rifle and round Cotton. Finding one still in original configuration and still in 7.65x53 would be awesome. Great round for anything that walks in the U.S. w/ the exception of great bear. Your really diggin' the old classics, nice.

These are really neat rifles and I've owned a couple. All were made before 1898 so they are considered antiques and you can buy one without any paperwork. They are superbly built by either Mauser or Ludwig Loewe and routinely show up at the larger gun shows like Tulsa and Louieville. Finding one without a ground crest can be a challenge. The last one I had I did shoot and it was very accurate. Good luck in your search.
