    Finally here, after all the weather delays from the eastern seaboard; Georgia,USA
    waited 3 weeks It's a 1909 Cavalry Carbine in 7.65x53, still need to clean cosmoline out
    of the action, and take some pics, also have an M24/47 that hasn't been shot yet,
    I picked that up last year before Thanksgiving. So now I have 7x57's, a 7.65x53, & 8x57's.
    Still looking for a Husky in 9.3x62 to round out the family. Pics soon to follow!!

    Get some Norma factory ammo and have a lot of fun.
    If you are planning to reload, Hornady bullets (.312) gave better results than Sierra (.311)

    Pics as promised, mfg'd in 1911 with a bore that looks like the day it was born, wood is not bad either, (but not matching)
    it's chambered in the 100+ year old 7.65x53 Mauser, kind of a 308's Grand-Dad, cleaned out the cosmoline today, it's ready to go!!

    Poucher; It's quite possible! I can't seem to control this addiction. I am currently trying to sell or trade my non-mauseres for mausers.

    Well in all the excitement I forgot the camera, But the shooting was awesome!
    shooting 180grn .311" Prvi Partizan ammo in the .312" (slugged it) bore wasn't too bad.
    1-1/2" group @ 50 yards 1-1/2" high dead centered and 4-1/2" group about 3-1/2" right
    @ 100 yards, that's no bench, no sling, shooting off hand.
    The surprise sleeper of the bunch was the M24/47 putting 3 out of 5 into 2" @ 100 with
    a 1907 style sling, off hand, and all 5 into 3". Great Day !!

    A good video about the 1891 model, sweet gun with a lot of simplicity and not as heavy as the 1909 model.
