Re: 1891 Engineer carbine

I’m no expert on these Argentine carbines... thus the reason I’m on this forum and several others. I’ll suggest a book that a lot of the forums are encouraging people to buy and to educate themselves on these rifles/carbines. The book is called “Argentine Mauser Rifle”. Apparently, 5034 model 1891 A...

Re: 1891 Engineer carbine

Thanks everyone for your comments and for answering my questions. It is an unusual piece with the blonde wood, tiger stripes, and refinished metal parts. The only thing I want to do is replace the screws for the barrel bands. Too bad people don't use the correct size screwdriver to remove a screw (O...

Re: 1891 Engineer carbine

Maybe I should look first before I speak? Yes, you’re correct... it does have the holes and plate. Thanks again!

Re: 1891 Engineer carbine

No screw holes or plate underneath. Also, both pieces of the bayonet clamp/ lug, and both pieces to the rear barrel band are stamped “26” ( all 4 pieces stamped 26 to match the last two numbers of the serial number). Apparently, this was an arsenal conversion and not from an individual. The part abo...

Re: 1891 Engineer carbine

Interesting,... chemically stripped? Makes sense and I guess I never though about it. Is there such a thing as tiger stripped wood? Thank you for your comment.

I don’t think this is a cut down rifle due to this information I pulled off the internet. Seems to have been manufactured as a carbine.

1891 Engineer carbine

I was wondering if someone on this forum has any expertise on 1891 Engineer carbines? Question, I picked up one of these little beauties a few months ago. I usually do my research on a rifle before I buy it... however, I purchased this one on impulse because of its size and beauty. First, I know the...

Re: Japanese sling

Hello sir, Thank you so much for your informative response! I knew this wasn’t an original WW2 Japanese sling because of the discrepancies you mentioned. I also didn’t think it was a pre-WW2 sling either because I couldn’t find any information to support that it was a Murata sling. It does appear to...

Re: Japanese sling

The rifle on the right has the sling in question. The two on the left have original WW2 Japanese slings for comparison. I don’t think it’s a repro, but I could be wrong.

Japanese sling

Hello, does anyone have knowledge on Japanese slings? I recently purchased an old type 38 rifle (No series) that came with a leather sling. I know it’s not an original WW2 Japanese sling because the buckle is stitched and not free floating (Also has too many buckle holes and hole pattern is differen...

Arisaka type 38 (No series)

I have a question that I’m hoping somebody can shed some light on. I recently purchased an Arisaka type 38 at an auction for $300.00. I didn’t inspect the firearm too much before I bid because... it has an original sling (Perfect condition), and original dustcover (Perfect condition), and an origina...

Re: M1 Garand

I was inquiring on his firearm but I think the seller was getting frustrated with me. He’s an older gentleman and I don’t think he really knows a lot about the weapon he’s selling. I was asking him if the stock has any cartouche markings and he didn’t know what I was talking about. I tried to explai...

Re: M1 Garand

Thank you sir for the informative reply! Good information on CMP suggestion. I have pics of the rifle that appears to be very clean. The older gentleman selling this rifle said he received it from his cousin who was in WW2. There’s so many fakes out there... and sadly enough, people will do anything...
