    Default M1891/41 Carcano Long Rifle & Bayonet

    This is the Italian Mannlicher Carcarno M1891/1941 Long rifle in 6.5 x 52mm-the Italian army made a large number of carbine and short rifle models of the Carcarno but only 2 of the long infantry type-the original 1891 and the 1941-this was very similar but was 85mm shorter and with modified rear sights for 300m to 1000m-the rifle uses the Mannlicher feed system with 6 round clips loaded into, and forming part of, the magazine. This rifle is dated 1942 but was restocked in 1947.

    The bayonet is the M1891 with leather and brass scabbard dated 1933.

    This is the last rifle that I bought and had deactivated before getting a collectors license, a decision I regret now as it was in excellent condition. C'est la Guerre.

    Nice rifle. I do not have one of those. Shame it is a deact. I like to shoot mine. What is the clip marked? Is the ammo useable? Rich A. in Pa.

    The ammo is live-I also have an M38 Short rifle in 6.5mm that's live but I don't shoot, I collect-there aren't any markings on the clip-there was a brand new clip in the long rifle when I bought it as well, also have a brass example of the clip.

    Nice looking rifle! I'm hoping to pick one of these up (and/or an Arisaka...) within a week or so!

    Could you explain how the sight works? Doesn't it flip down all the way and fit into that notch in the wooden foregrip for close quarters combat?

    GIZMO8Z-yes, the sights do flip over into the woodwork to reveal the sight picture for the fixed 'battle' sight-this set up is very unusual-the device is set up to be used by the left hand from under the forestock-in complete contrast to the simple fixed battle sight on all the M38 Short rifles-Italian weapons often seem to have very complicated parts as solutions to otherwise simple problems-a case in point being the folding blade bayo for the M38; complicated, fragile and expensive to make for basically a butter knife on the end of the rifle!

    samnev-thanks for the appreciation from an obviously serious collector.

    Hi Lithgow,
    Thanks for showing the Carcarno nice rifle it is a shame you had to deac it but sometimes these things have to be done. i would like one for my collection but it would have to be deac also, i think they are an interesting rifle.
    not everyones cup of tea though.
    dave.
