1891 Argentine Mauser Production Date

Anyone know where I can find a list of production dates for the 1891 Argentine Mausers? Picked one up the other day that I believe is an L series. Has the small handguard and the large screw in front of the magazine.

Argentine 1891 Carbine

I was searching for information on this topic and found this thread. I also managed to find the old Jouster thread. The above list is missing a bit of information. Here is what was on the original date list, cut and pasted:

1900 D3000 - E5539
1901 E5540 - E8039

My little DWM 1891 carbine is serial number C05XX, which would put its manufaturing date as sometime in 1899.
