M1891 Tubata

Post by Airforce1 »

Finally got one for my collection. Paid too much but I was drinking so what the hell. Picked it up with that M1910 Glisenti I posted about earlier. 1918 dated receiver with a retubed 1898 Torino barrel.

That is a beautiful rifle.. Those long Carcanos are just works of art..

Just to share, I was able to get mine at an estate Auction, for nothing because a couple old boys looking the gun over tripped the safety and did not know how to get it off.. So now the bolt was locked and they thought they broke it... And they told everyone they broke it and the price was well under the mark ..

Was crusty when I just looked at it. Ran a brush through it and it is a near mirror.

I have two Tubata M91 rifles. A Torino like the op and a Brescia. I got the Brescia super cheap with the bayonet. I didn't realize how uncommon they were until I was told so. Still need a Roma and a nice Terni to complete my M91 collection.
