    OK I have a Mauser Modelo Argentino 1909, and thats all it says on it, there are no markings as to what the caliber or anything is, how do I find out whether its been sported to a .30-06 or is still the original caliber?

    A gunsmith can measure the chamber dimension and bore diameter.

    1909 Argentine Mauser- rebarreled with a Douglas Premium tube in 243 Win. Butter smooth action.
    Burris Fullfield II Tactical Scope, 4.5-14x42 AO, Ballistic Reticle. AMMO: Hornady 58 gr VMax, Varget powder, loaded for coyote hunting.


    The stock is another story. That is what it had when I bought it at a gun show in Texas back in 1979-80. The rifle was still a 7.65 Argentine then.
    I installed the cheek riser to line up my eye to the scope.

    I can live with this at 200 yards. It's not minute of eyeball but respectable. As long as I can amuse myself....

    The best way is to cast the chamber, then measure the casting.
