These very collectible Carcanos are Model 91 TS.  The TS stands for "Truppe Special" or Special Troop.  These are original carbine length(not cut downs).  Chambered in 6.5 Carcano (6.5x52mm).

The condition of these rifles is Fair to Good.  They are 100% functional but do shows signs of use.  These carbines do not include the cleaning rod.  This is a surplus rifle, we recommend having it checked by a competent gunsmith prior to firing. 

These Carcanos are C&R eligible.

It came in dirty but cleaned up nice. Need to strip all the way down, including bolt to get cosmoline cleaned up.

Overall, a nice piece for its age. Probably 85 % condition. Action crisp, barrel could look better, but for its age, to be expected. Has a little problem ejecting clips, not sure yet if rifle or clip problem. Would recommend this to others. This is a great have fun in the back yard gun.

Exterior metal very good with very little surface rust under the barrel. Stock in very good condition. Rear sight ladder locking mechanism broken. Sight ladder just flops back and forth. This defect should have been obvious to the picker and packer. Front barrel band screw head broken off. I was able to remove the screw because the screw threads were stripped and the screw could just be pushed out. Bore was heavily corroded. Lots of work has produced a clean heavily worn bore. Slugs at .270\". Last 5 inches or so is nearly smooth bore. Bolt closes on a Field Gauge. I do intend to fire form some cases, load reduced rounds and shoot the pretty little carbine . I do not expect much in the way of accuracy.

Received a very nice Brescia 91 TS that I would rate a solid 85% overall condition. 1916 manufacture. Wood has the normal dings and dents but zero cracks and all stamps are prominent. Bluing is in very good condition with no rust. Typical cosmoline present inside the action and bore. Bore shows some wear and I would rate it at 85% which I consider quite acceptable considering the rifle is over a 100 years old. It has been shot, but is far from worn out. Not my first Carcano, nor military rifle as I consider myself an avid collector. Based on my purchase I would strongly recommend the offering from Buds.

    Zach, No sling included. You are going to have to buy that if you want one.

    Hi, Technically, 91/24 is a modification of the original Mod. 91 while 91 TS is a specially built variant. The biggest difference between 91 TS and 91/24 is that the 91/24 has an altered rear sight blade. The difference is very minimal. I hope this helps.

    Hi, It really depends on whether you have the original barrel or your barrel was replaced sometime during its use (likely). Original M91-type rifles and carbines had gain twist barrels, however, this feature has been dropped since 1938 as a money-saving measure. So this rifle likely has gain twist barrel originally but if the barrel was replaced after 1938, it is replaced with a fixed twist rate. Your best bet to find some gunsmith to check it for you. I hope this helps.
