First welcome. Can you post a picture of the complete rifle if it isn't all bubba'd. Looks like you may want a new safety lever.

Welcome,,, I have two arg rifles in 7.65x53arg. Two ammo cans full of surplus FMJ. Never shot them yet.

Is it a 1891? Need a full pic.? Carbine? Engineer carbine? Long barrel?

You might want to look for it at,, www.carbinesforcollectors.com
Pull up a chair, get your favorite beverage and read, enjoy

Scope safeties available from Numrich
and Timney

Numrich costs less, but Timney will be more helpful getting the right part.

I think it is an Argentine 1909 Mauser, '98 type; they were the main users of 7.65 besides Belgium whose rifle was a different model and Turkey who changed over to 8mm.
It has a German bolt sleeve (The whole action might be German with an Argentine barrel installed, have to look for the makers mark or country crest under the front scope mount.), drilled and tapped for scope and peep sights, set into a plastic or painted wood sporter stock I do not recognize, with a Remington trigger guard on the blind magazine stock.

Seeing that’s French, looks to be Belgian.

Is it really an m35 action? Maybe blended/smoothed when sporterized?

[ ed. ah! According to Wikipedia, Argentina bought some m35s for police. Decommissioned them in the ‘60s. Which is a good match for the furniture that looks a ‘70s vibe to me. What model is the ‘scope? ]

The "model of 1935" Belgian Mauser:


... a 7.65mm Mauser, many of which were sold to Argentina. So far matching your photos and description. The photos show French for:

National Arms Manufacture

Looks as though it's been sporterized. Photos I've seen of m35s show sharper corners. But gunsmiths often improved the cosmetics while sporterizing rifles. And it may be just the lighting. As much re-work as has been done, it could be an earlier version. Your description included "Argentine", though not the basis for that assertion. If there's a provenance for it having been in Argentina, that matches being an m35 ... but lots of Belgian '89s(?) probably ended up in Argentina also.
