Very Good Condition

The Model 1891/24 Carbine was approved to replace / supplement the Model 1891 TS currently in service.

The conversion consisted of shortening the barrels & fore-end of the existing M91 rifles, this also eliminated the most severely worn part of the rifling, the barrels were also turned to accept a bayonet to the muzzle end. The rear sights range notches were modified from 600 - 1,500 metres, the front sight is mounted in a dovetail on a ferrule that fits over the barrel.

This example originally manufactured in 1903 at Terni

Converted to M1891/24 by Terni in 1924 - This is marked on the barrel

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 are now stripping & cleaning in preparation for sale.

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

Very Good Condition, the bore has strong rifling with some frosting

This is a Section 1 Firearm & requires a Firerams Licence or RFD
