Seeing you mentioned use of 7.65x61 in Armada Argentina subcalibre use,
can you find me original chamber/
cartridge specification drawings for the 1914 MA 7.65x61?
I have a M1909 Rifle With chamber
US importer-modified to Cal .30 M1906 …I wish to adjust the chamber to proper
7.65x61 MA…I already can make
Very close approximations of the
MA cartridge using my existing dies etc.
From comparison of photos of
MA and Cal.30, it seems that the
MA was developed by combining
The profile of the 7.65x53 case shoulder and neck, with the longer
Cal. .30 case…from experiences of the AA rifle team at the PanAmerican Matches in USA in 1912 or so…
Ball’s book on Mausers shows an Argentine M1909 fitted out with a US Springfield type stock( no pistol-grip and lenghtened forestock) and the special M1903 windage adjustable rear sight. No cartridge details except
“7,65” are implied in the ID of this rifle.
Have you any photos of the AA MA
Rifles? I Would assume that the
Rifles of the Rifle team woukd be
the modified ones?
I have been to the Museo de la Nacion, but couldn’t see a MA rifle there. ( maybe I did not look hard enough-- too many interesting to see, and not enough time…even a week would not be !enough!
And with the decline in Matches etc. During WWII, the MA rifles were converted to Subcalibre devices???
Muchas gracias y saludos.
