    Argentine M91 carbine converted to 5.56mm NATO

    I bought this from a friend who got it a a local auction. We didn't know it was altered until we got home. No markings, we don't know who did it. I love odd ball conversions. Someone might appreciate it.

    Well, it is kind of a shame as it has it's crest. I'm neither a purist or an experimenter.

    From a practical perspective, 5.56mm is probably a good match for this carbine.

    I agree John, But Its a shame when someone does experiment with original old rifles etc, but as its been drilled and tapped for a scope not a problem in my opinion, lot cheaper to run and more pleasant to shoot in 5.56mm.

    True Geoff, I guess we have collectors or shooters, going back to the 60's, the two were much the same. Today they tend to be polar opposites of the shooting community.

    Some of the high end, bespoke manufactured, all singing and dancing modern target rifles, at my local range, just bore the life out of me!

    Give me my worn WW1 Enfield any day of the week....

    The issues are

    Original crest still on it, shoulda left it alone.



    The drill and tap,, hurts it in my opinion but if it was SAFE with original caliber shoulda left it alone.

    The actual conversion, GOOD IDEA. Put that idea out a year ago, got laughed at. Too heavy for the caliber I was told. Bet it handles damn good. Though rear sight could use a leaf on it.
