That's pretty funny. I overheard you telling the seller that you didn't need any clips because you already have other Carcanos. If we ever meet again, I'll say hi.That’s me.
Hah, well what are the odds. I’m actually glad you mentioned you bought that model 41, because I was thinking about coming back for it tomorrow... so I’m glad I didn’t take the trouble only to find it’s no longer there. I’m more partial to carbines anyways but that seller had some decent prices by today’s standards. I think I posted this photo before but here are some of my others Carcanos.
Rapid Fire in Sandy has PPU 6.5 Carcano on the shelfI got the m41 for $300. The bore looked dark to me, but I hadn't brought my glasses and the seller said it was probably just dirty. I got it home and scrubbed the bore, and it's got a lot of pitting, especially towards the muzzle. It doesn't worry me too much, as I've seen pitted bores still shoot OK.
Now I just need to order some dies and find some brass and bullets.
I understand globe may be more correct . The front sight was missing when I got it , and the replacement I have is probably low. Should be a stacked blade, if anything . I’ll need to shoot it and see, and may need to put a globe sight on it .I got a couple of those guys. One has a globe front sight. Both have nice triggers. PAX
