The top one looks like a Dutch Mannlicher

Bottom is a Truppe Special Carcano, but I can't say exactly which model. Middle is a nice condition Berthier M1916 Carbine. I don't know much about the Mannlicher carbine on top. If the bores are decent and they're fully functional, I wouldn't call any of them in "poor" condition. Just a little bit of "been there, done that" look.

Carcano is a M91/24 TS missing the cleaning rod. I have 2 of them myself.
The Dutch Carbine is missing a slab of wood that attached to the side of the magazine.

I would be happy to have those in my collection.

They look like "honest" examples to me

Thanks for the info , well I guess I identified the carcano correctly LOL. These really do not fit in my collection and may keep one of them. I will be listing two of them soon , I guess my question should have been , should I keep on over the other two? The center one is the best looking one . Thanks

Why poor list them in poor condition?
If the bores are serviceable, and the bolts function shoot them.

I have a Omega M44 from 2009... and I shoot it regularly
Not THAT, is poor condition.

IMO, keep all three if so inclined.
They will do nothing but become more valuable over time.

I guess I would describe two of them as field grade and the other as service grade . Honestly I have no desire to shoot them as I have others I shoot. I really jsut do not have the room to keep them . I understand what you are saying about keeping them but I have so many others that these just do not fit in my collection. Thanks

If you price them correctly and take good pics - they are all desirable and should sell quickly for you.

A TIP: If you log in to Gunbroker and click "Advanced" next to the Search icon, you can search for past auctions of similar rifles to determine a fair market value. It should at least give you a starting point.
