Winner....now for the rest of the photos.
This is how it came home...needs just a little clean up. Very nice bore....all in all very nice little Carcano....these things are usually just beat to hell....no one cares about them, but this one is about the nicest one I have seen in a very long time....and the wood is just wonderful.

My new toy

Hey Y'all,
I picked my new toy yesterday. It is a Savage 170 in 30-30 caliber. I got it on one of the auction sites. To me it appears to have never been used. Here it is. Be safe, Tony

I originally posted "Carcano" but but took it back when I remembered how unusual the rounds were, so I posted a pic of the cartridges and figured someone else could still make a guess.

When you think about how long the projectile is, it's plausible that it could tumble very weirdly as proposed by the Warren commission.

Those bullets are probably 160-170 grains. They stabilize very well, given the correct twist. Years ago, a British hunter by the name of W.D.M. Bell used a 6.5 Mannlicher to kill a great many elephants. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._D._M._Bell

So many people poo-poo the rifle from Italy but they are in fact pretty good rifles....the Italians have been making guns for 600years you would think they would have learned a thing or two.

The only real problems with the Carcano was that there were so many BETTER rifles out there during that period. It wasn't that they were THAT bad.

I think the high point of 6.5 military rifles, actually, maybe any military bolt action, would be the Swedish Mausers.

The Swedes took great care of them, and they're very accurate. When they first started importing them I picked up a beautiful carbine for $79.

Another "why the hell did I sell that?".

Sorry to mention this but Lee Harvey Oswald thought that a Carcano would do the job...

I think I would depend on how you define better. I don't think the rifles are any better in terms of quality. I have been lucky enough to own every main bolt battle rifle of WWII and assuming the rifles are in like shape they are all about the same. Out of all the bolt battle rifles of WWII I like the French MAS 36 the best....seems to be the best made of all of them....but you would think it would be...being the last one designed, the French could look at all the other designs and take the best from all and put them in one. I also like my Type 99 another rifle that is written off as junk....or not as good as the others, as strong or whatever.

The other problem is getting the right sized bullet...so many shooting 265 out of a hole that is 268 and then griping about the rifle not being able to hit anything...well duh.
