Italian carcano question

Article about: I'm putting together a 6.5 carcano from the nicest pieces I have. My question is, are the 6.5 receivers the same specs as the 7.35? Picked up a nice 6.5 Beretta barrel and equally nice Beret

    I'm putting together a 6.5 carcano from the nicest pieces I have. My question is, are the 6.5 receivers the same specs as the 7.35? Picked up a nice 6.5 Beretta barrel and equally nice Beretta 7.35 receivers. Interchangeable?

    Are you sure you want to do that? There are tons of quality Carcanos available in 'whole rifle/carbine' form, with no extra work needed, and for very reasonable prices throughout the US.

    Yes because I like finding these rifles for cheap and salvaging what I can. Labor of love so to speak.

    The whole reason for this post is that the original barrel (7.35) is pitted with rust to the point I consider it unsafe. The rest of the rifle is great.

    Answered my own question. Everything is interchangeable between the 6.5 and 7.35 carcano except the barrel. This is a great book by the way.

    The most common with a fixed rear sight. Although there are cavalry carbine too. Maybe a pic when you get a chance.

    Carcano's are neat rifles, most people either pass them over as "cheap italian junk" or get them due to the JFK connection.

    I intend to get a SA marked example eventually, they are not expensive.
