It is frequent to encounter arsenal refurbished Carcano in 99 % condition. But rarely ever have I seen a 100 % mint one such as this one.

And late war production (late 1944 and 1945) did not differ in quality from the pictured gun. Salvatore Carcano had genially designed a gun which was very easy and efficient to manufacture - in a time where nobody thought about any need for three-shift production -, and the Italians had perfected economic output under war conditions so early (in the Great War already) that there was simply no need to cut any further corners as all the other nations did. What a contrast to British, German, Japanese or Russian late war rifles.
