I picked up the Lee Harvey commemorative edition for an extra $20.00 clams. It’s dead nuts accurate from 150 yards & 6 stories up.

Ordered one when they were on sale for $200. Arrived in a few days. Was filthy, slight rust, dented stock. Cleaned up very nice. Now if I could only find some ammo.

You can get six boxes (120 rounds) with free shipping here:

It will cost you more than the rifle did. The PPR comes down a bit if you purchase a 200 round case.

I got one recently from KyGunCo, it took 3 weeks to arrive, was very beat up, fair condition may be an overstatement. Diffuse pitting, multiple stock chips and gouges, and rust despite being soaked in cosmoline.

I don’t own one, but October 2021 update for those interested, ammo is $1.45 / round shipped. Multiple bullet types. Ammoseek app and website is really helpful. I probably spend almost as much time browsing there as here.

Top 10 by Mae of all WW1 guns. (well at least the TS version)
I have to admit I'm a fan of countries wise enough to use a handy 6.5 in WW1/2 instead of the big, fat, heavies.

I was one of the lucky ones.
Complete gun and bolt disassembly all metal parts went through a 1 hr mineral spirits soak to dissolve gunk.
No major gouges in wood and cleaned up nicely after Ballistol and 3M green scrubber lightly removing all the built up wood crud.
Bluing is about 80-90% after 0000 steel wool and oil rub down.
Minor pitting forward of rear sight and a little on barrel. Surprisingly rust free under the wood line.
I only shot about 10 rounds and I'd estimate it as 4-5 moa at 100 yards and no keyholing.
You have to bury the front post in the V notch rear sight to be anywhere near bullseye elevation at 100 yards.
Button type bayonet and locks up nice.
As expected it's a fun, light, handy rifle.
Biggest issue is that extraction is weak and barely clears the port. haven't debugged that yet. Maybe just a weak spring?
Didn't have a mag yet to see if mag drops free. With the price of its ammo, single hand feeds was fine by me.
Just need to find an Arisaka Type 38 to complete my WW1/2 major combatants.

1 wjh, “Buyer Beware” - Don’t fret to much, according to Bible prophecy we are right on track and in perfect timing order to the Great War and the Caught Up Event, that rifle won’t do you any good only Jesus will. Peace to all

I agree... In the mean time, nothing wrong with enjoying classic rifles and the like. Another gun to consider is something in 357 Sig. (Or as I like to call it, a 9mm Mag.) Its also the caliber that Jack Wilson used to put down a deranged punk who shot two people at West Freeway Church of Christ. Jesus will come again, mark my words but until then, be on guard.

I respect the message behind what you were trying to say, but what make you think he would be planning to use a Carcano rifle in the "Great War"? Not like we don't have access to modern arms. Also millions of Christians are victimized by criminals every year so you are wrong, yes that rifle will do him some good. Jesus favors the prepared. God Bless.

Make sure you read about ammo diameter issue which leads to ridiculously bad accuracy.
If you're just going to use it to just blast a dirt mound you should be ok.

And of coarse ammo is unobtanium currently but if I recall it was >1.50$ even before the panic.
I played around with one at a gun show and it's light, fun, and quirky but it definitely doesn't have a quality feel to it and rust is pretty common.

If you're looking for a good 6.5 surplus then look no further than a Swedish Mauser which has10 times the quality for approx 2x the cost.

LOL, I decided buy one for $209 shipped.
It's primary function will be a man cave wall hanger and rounds out my WW2 C&R lineup.
If the bayonet locks up correctly and it goes BANG I'll probably be satisfied.

I might would buy one if it was chambered in a caliber that you could find 6.5x52mm carcano ammo is almost impossible to find

Wouldn't mind having one but since I can't be sure I won't get a rust bucket with a worn out barrel just don't think I'll take the chance.

I was in KyGunCo about a month or so ago and I was wanting to buy one. At the time they were like $229. They had 20 or so on display and none of them were terrible, I would guess they were all in "Good" condition, but far from great. I had planned to pick out the best one and buy it, but their system in that store is terrible. You take a number and wait around for someone to check you out. I waited around 30 minutes and decided I didn't want to wait an hour and I left.

I purchased one from this dealer two months ago and it was in decent condition. I'll reply in a couple years when ammo is under $5 a round to let everyone know how it actually fired.

Maybe for $99 shipped. Some of the worst rifles made in the last 100 years that have been stacked in a goat barn in africa for the last 50.

12/7/21: Don't mean to be a Mr. Opposite but they are not bad rifles. President Kennedy (May he Rest In Peace) can attest to that

Yeah if Lee Harvey Oswald really fired the shot that killed him. - I am still tempted to buy since I live in Dallas not far from where he was shot. Cool talking piece but yes this gun was/is supposedly highly inaccurate and doubtful LHO actually fired the shot that killed JFK.
