Argentin mauser carbine. Attached is photo of 1909 Argentin mauser, flat magazine. Looking through Argentin mausers that have single stack protruding magazines. 1909 mauser dated 1891. If it's dated 1891, how could it be a model 1909.

That appears to be a Model 1909. Reason why I am saying this is the non protruding magazine. The 1891 had the protruding magazine.

I think that picture in post #1 is the Model 1909. There was a remodeled and upgraded version of the 1891 know as the 1891/09 according to the article I'm going to link below, but I cannot imagine that it could have been retrofitted to the flush magazine like the sample in post #1. According to this article the 1891/09 would have been a long rifle also, not a carbine.

Also the bolt shroud , safety and cocking piece are definitely a large ring 98 Mauser.

Went and checked it is a model 1909. I don't know where I got the date from. It has all matching serial numbers.
You have a very servicable rifle there, these 1909 were made to old world standards..enjoy!
