Re: Argentine 1891 Long Rifle

The bore is shiny and rifling very sharp.

Had no problem hitting the gong at 500yds with factory loads.
The crest has been ground off on this example

Argentine 1891 Long Rifle

This one turned up and I have been after one for a while so I took the plunge.
I haven't seen too many up for sale lately so why not

This one was manufactured by Ludwig Lowe in 1895.

This one is matching right down to the cleaning rod.
