    Hi Zwerge,

    Can you tell me any of the stampings on the receiver?

    It looks like they started life as "Special Troop" 91/28 carbines...

    Here is a pic of mine:

    Hmmm... 1915 and 1916... that means that they were probably Moschetti per Truppe Speciali Mod. 91 (or 6.5 mm M91 TS, carbine for special troops, adopted 1897) with 17.7 inch barrel.

    Can you take a pic of where the barrel and receiver mate? Mine looks like this... tons of stampings on the barrel flats:
