Re: Carcano Cavalry Carbine

Thanks for posting your carbine, it makes the topic more informative. The reputation that Carcano receives is undeserving. As you mentioned the carbine is fun to shoot and so compact and light. Even so prices for these is not that cheap down in Oz but in saying that the days of cheap mil surps is lo...

I just got one also, except mine has a fixed sight. Same manufacturer. I think from reading, it is an M38 cavalry carbine.
The fixed sights indicate m38 but I believe that brecia manufactured m38 carbines with the adjustable rear sight just to
