    Recent Carcano M91 "Cavalry Carbines from RTI

    I have purchased a total of six "Cavalry Carbines" ranging in dates from 1899 to 1941. Three came from DK Firearms several months ago and three recent from RTI. I bought one of RTI's "Very Good" rated Carbines when the dropped the price about a month ago. I recently bought two more of their "Fair to Good" when they dropped the price on those to $99. I just received the last two and was pleasantly surprised. One is in "Good to Very Good" condition and the other in "Very Good" Condition. One is a 1941 FNA Brescia, barrel dated 1941 XIX. The other is a Cardone with a two digit, clearly stamped date of 36. However, the Roman Numeral date is clearly "XV". 1922 when Mussolini came to power plus 15 should be 1937. Has anyone seen a date discrepancy like this. I have not noticed any before.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Hi JJ, it is absolutely normal. The Fascist year began on October 21st, so all documents, guns etc produced before and after that date show different EF years (Era Fascista).
