Nice display - I love the old 89 and 91 action Mausers. And I'm definately feeling some love for the handgun collection, there's stuff in there I've never seen in person. And one I don't recognize!

Most of them are those firearms that were tested but never adopted.

I assume you mean tested but not adopted by Argentina? Other than the Adler, Roth-Sauer, Bergmann 1896 and what looks like some kind of Astra prototype, they were all produced in appreciable numbers.

Yep. But many of them (like the Cetme rifles or the Astras) were donated by foreign delegations during diplomatic visits or as a simple contribution to the museum, so it would not be surprising to find many rare weapons.

Very nice. Now that's a place I'd like to visit.
