I also have an 1891 Argentine Mauser in 7.65x53. Wonderful rifle. They were superseded by the 1909 Argentine Mauser in the same caliber. In fact at one time the Model 54 Winchester was also chambered for this excellent round. I would bet if you disassemble the bolt you'll either find the firing pin tip broken or there may be a century of accumulated dried grease causing your light strike. Hornady, Grafs, Norma and Privi Partizan still load ammo and you may find older brand name ammo on the shelves too. The ballistics are similar to the 308, maybe a trifle slower but still healthy. I find mine to be a fine carrying rifle, slim and trim, feels like one of my long rifle muzzle loaders sort of. Make sure you only feed cartridges from the mag as they are a controlled feed design and extractors can be hard to find if you bust one.

I think Bob may be thinking of the 1894 Swedish Mauser which was followed by the 1896 Swede. The 91 stayed in service til the 09 came along. The cartridge and some rifles were used in WW1 by Belgium and Turkey and in several South American conflicts. The 91 is a bear to restock due to the protruding mag and no commercial semi inlet stocks are available that I know of. Scoping a 91 can be done but the gun ejects more to the top than side and that can be a problem. Buehler made an aftermarket safety for the 91 at one time, but I haven't seen one in decades.

Been thinking about taking the bolt apart if I can figure out how that is and have a look so. At this point pretty hard to hurt it since it will not fire as it is and I do not need another wall hanger. This one is like the other rifle we have talked about no good if it does not fire but at least I have ammo for this one

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

A good synopsis, another alternative explanation would be the chamber having been reamed to something with more readily available ammo. I have seen 91s reamed to 30-06. Not safe in the least.
