WORLD WAR II Italian GARDONE VAL TROMPIA Model 1938 6.5mm SHORT RIFLE C&R
Primary Longarm of the Italians during WWII
Here we present a C&R Italian Gardone V.T. Carcano Model 1938 Short Rifle, manufactured circa 1940.
Carcano is the frequently used name for a series of Italian bolt-action, magazine-fed, repeating military rifles and carbines. Introduced in 1891, this rifle was chambered for the rimless 6.5×52mm Carcano round. It was developed by the chief technician Salvatore Carcano at the Turin Army Arsenal in 1890 and was originally called the Modello 91. Successively replacing the previous Vetterli-Vitali rifles and carbines, it was produced from 1892 to 1945. The M91 was used in both rifle (fucile) and shorter-barreled carbine (moschetto) form by most Italian troops during World War I and by Italian and some German forces during World War II.
The overall condition is good. The action is excellent. Good bore with strong rifling. The stock remains solid overall with lots of handling. A great collection item with interesting history!
