Adopted in 1893, the M91 Carcano Cavalry Carbine was the smaller variant of the standard-issue 1891 infantry rifle. This model was much shorter and lighter than the original, which made it more maneuverable on the battlefield, particularly for light cavalry units. This model also featured the spike bayonet, gave cavalrymen an additional back-up if they were not using their sabers. Like the earlier models, the cavalry rifles are also chambered in 6.5X52mm or "6.5 Carcano" and feed from a 6 round En Bloc clip. Functionally, these were the same as the standard-issue infantry rifles but more compact. The bolt-action on this rifle is incredibly smooth and they feature a traditionally turned bolt knob. Unlike many of the "Heavy Use " Carcano rifles that you may have seen in the past, these rifles were issued to and carried by the Italian Carabinieri and were then stored in government-controlled arsenals in Italy upon turn in. See additional details below. These rifles are an incredible piece of history and deserve a spot in your Classic Firearms Collection!
