Arsenal de Guerra, Buenos Aires. From Steinhauer’s headstamp guide.


United States Cartridge Co. contract load.

Hi Bob, the cartridge case was manufactured by the USCCo without a headstamp and in 1894 it was reloaded (bullet, powder and primer) by the Taller Nº. 7 of the Arsenal de Guerra of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Other cases were left unheadstamped and others headstamped A G, A G 93 and A G 95.

Yes USC Co contract. Forgot to include that in the listing…will be included in the next update.

Curtis, this is not a USCCo contract for Argentina but a standard unheadstamped .43 Spanish Remington made by that company. The “A G 94” marking was made in Argentina.

Thanks Fede
I appreciate it, my info had it as contract but this makes sense with the poor and often uncentered marks on these head stamps. Thanks my friend, you are always such a wealth of information.
