Surplus Alert: 1891 TS Carcano Carbines.

Has sent me an alert that they will soon be posting 1891 TS Carcano Carbines.  These are GAF main match eligible, and just a dandy little carbine in general.  DKs pricing has seemed reasonable to me in the past, FWIW.

They also have a nice selection of the only Beretta I've ever really liked, the M1951.

Now up on site at $249.   These are NOT 91/24s, these are orginal 1891 TS Carbines, in both nosecap styles.  Including the oddball cross bayonet latch of the pre ww1 guns.

I was informed they were still being cataloged, and would be posted "Shortly, within the next 48 hours".  Keep checking.

Palmetto State has them too, they have some pictures of representative examples. They are Mod 91-24 TS, that's the ones that were converted from long rifles, and most will have cut down barrels I believe. May not shoot as well as the long rifle, since the fast twist part of the gain twist rifling is cut off. Might shoot well with a fairly light cast, though, since the gain twist Carcanos seem to be difficult to get to shoot cast well.

Real M-91 TS carbines? Drat, now I'm gonna have to check these out!  I had already successfully resisted the urge to pounce on the PSA offering. And I've already got two new guns inbound... Already somewhat set up for 6.5 Have a 6.5 neck size die and a 6.5X55 I can use for seating, and a shell holder for the oddball Carcano case head. Already have an M-41 Carcano, even a couple of clips.

The Carcano uses the same shellholder as the 7.62x39.  There are some who think it might have been the parent case, but old Soviets ain't telling.
