An 1870 Vetterli Carabinerie (sp) converted to 6,5 caliber. None of these were ever converted to the Vitali magazine, but in the desperate days of WW1, a **few** were converted to 6,5 caliber. Close combat for military and civilian police must have been anticipated. This model was used by police.

It's shown with a cavalry moschetto for size perspective.
