These Carbines were adopted the 6th of January 1900, even though production stared in 1889.

The Model 1891 TS Carbine was issued to Artillery & Engineering Units, NCO's, Alpine Logistics Units, Royal Navy, & Forestry Militia

This model TS like no other had a vast number of changes & upgrades depending on its use, this example is the last version of the TS with dual sling swivels arrangement
and barrel band to accept the standard M1891 Bayonet

*********************

These were recently released as Surplus by the Italian Carabinieri.

Still covered in Cosomoline Storage Grease, they were cleaned just enough to allow proof, we have now stripped & cleaning these.

Just Been Proofed & Head Space Checked at proof & Again by us

Good Conition, the bores have strong rifling with some frosting
