In 1895 Argentina purchased a quantity of rifles from Germany based on the Spanish 1893 Mauser design. Later rifles based on the Gewehr 98 pattern were purchased from both Germany and Spain. Caliber before World War I was uniformly 7.65mm Mauser. Some in 7.92mm caliber have since been delivered.
From 1924 on the Belgian F. N. factory supplied Mauser System rifles to Argentina and other nations. These were all made to the general specifications of the official German Kar. 98 except for such modifications as were required by the difference in caliber. A reading of the chapter on the later German types will effectively cover these later Argentine rifles.
