Rare 1943 Italian WWII M91/41 Carcano Bolt-Action Rifle | 6.5x52mm Carcano
You are considering a vintage Rare 1943 Italian WWII M91/41 Carcano Bolt-Action Rifle. It was manufactured by Armaguerra Cremona late in the war during 1943, they were supervised by the German’s while the rest of Italy was under an armistice. The last block of rifles to be manufactured had a serial number beginning with QZ, this particular rifle has the serial number QZ8856. The stock is marked RA, which is where the story gets murky — rumors have it there was a batch of rifles made after the QZ serial number that began with RA but no literature has been produced to confirm this. Either way, it’s in the same format and style as the QZ-marked stocks and most likely was produced at the same factory. The rifle, like all late-war Carcanos, appears to have never been issued, as such, the metal finish is perfect with absolutely no damage to note — no deep cuts, gouges, rust, or other deformities. The bore is bright and shiny with strong rifling and no fouling or pitting — it is chambered for the 6.5x52mm Carcano cartridge. The barrel measures 27.2-inches in length and includes its original front and rear sights. The bolt has been case-color-hardened and the action cycles easily and locks up nicely. The rifle is missing its middle barrel band spring and front band screw but does include its original cleaning rod.
