Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

The Best Carcano Website

#1 Post by virtus » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:28 pm

The best web site on the Carcano Rifle...... http://www.il91.it/il91.html

It's in Italian but has the most information anywhere. You can use google translate to
try and read the information, But sometimes is translated poorly.

Spend some time clicking on all the links shown on the left side of the main page.
There are hundreds of photos. Info on ammo, makers marks and other stampings,
serial number data base, etc., etc.. You name it and it is there to be found.

If you are into Carcano Rifles and or Italian Military items this is one of the Internet's
best kept secrets.

Its a great site. Google translate has real problems as the translated words leave a lot to be desired.

I finally got a little time to dig into this website.. Some of the photos are awesome.. Google translate has a lot to be desired..

But one thing that is dogging me is the lower rifle in this photo.. Can someone shed some light on it??... I think it may be a 6mm florbert??..

It is a wonderful looking little rifle

indy1919a4 - I have noticed that you already know this website.

The last toy "Carcano rifle" is very similar to my "cavalry carcano carbine"! In old SRF I had topic of it. It is really fantastic this Opera Nazionale Balilla giocatollo!

1st I do not know if it is a toy, (Not counting the blank guns as toys) I have been researching it and not getting anywhere.. But that bolt in the photo looks to good to be a simple toy... I THINK..

Now second your toy rifle is to die for... is that folding "bayonet" metal?? Tin?? Does it go click when you pull the trigger?? Any idea of a manufacture year for your?? I would imagine pre 1936

There was many system, .22LR, blank etc

My "toy" carbine is made by wood and tin, Folding bayonet doesn't has sharp blade. It could fire firing cup on the paper strip...hard to explain this old toy system. It has rotating bolt but unfortunately bolt handle on the right side of the bolt is missing (tin). Other parts are all including leather belt , sling.
