    I now feel very privileged! I even feel kind of fancy... I can tell people to reference the book that my rifle is included in... stick my pinky up while drinking tea, etc.

    I have trouble selling most anything in my collection... this rifle is especially meaningful because my gf bought it for me! I hope to take her out to shoot it this weekend! She said she would wear my Italian Alpini helmet, too! (It remains to be seen if she will keep her word on this...)

    Sling came in today.... it's a proper early style to match my 1932 vintage rifle. My Carcano is now complete... I think?

    Can anyone think of any other accessories I'm missing?

    Depends how far you want to go but an oiler, also the jag/brush cleaners that fit on the end of the rod-armourers tools/screwdrivers (getting pretty esoteric there).

    Thanks for the response, Lithgow!

    I forgot to mention! I have a Carcano screw driver and pewter oiler on the way...

    I kind of want to get a gray green leather shoulder bandoleer. I think they look cool!

    Did you end up getting a bayo that fits?

    Gah! I forgot to mention that, too! Yes, I got a WWI Carcano bayonet made by the Artillery works in Roma in a WWII scabbard made by Rocca. It's kind of appropriate because the barrel on my rifle is made of pre-WWI German Krupp steel!
