I just bought this fine rifle today. It'd not in mint condishion, but, I can say that it was made in 30 06, not a conversion. It's stamped on the reviver that it is 30 06. Also it was manufactured in Berlin. I don't know if all Argentino 1909 mousers were manufactured in berlin or if they were made in argentino. I haven't done much resuch on them and any information you have will be Greatly appreciated. I will take pictures of this beauty and post them later on as an update. It's blueing I guess is about.....60-75%. I'll probably get it reblued in the next year or so. I spent $267.52 on it. I believe that's a good price for a German made firearm considering Kar* 98s do cost more. So you guys, I am forgine to Mousers, I have almost bought them a few times in the past but haven't. So this is my first Mouser.
