So a couple of months back I grabbed up a 1909 Argentine Cavalry Carbine, shot it and fell for it hard ! What's not to like? Quick handling, light & short, and powerful, in 7.65 x 53 Mauser. So I found a 1908 Brazilian action and another 1909 carbine barrel and stock. Assembled it all myself, and had my gunsmith head-space it,. Shot it today, Freakin Awesome!! Not great, but not bad either! Now to fine tune loads.
