There’s a Tito star on the right side of the buttstock. When I bought this rifle I got a pretty good deal because there were a few issues. First off the bolt had been replaced with a straight handle bolt. The biggest problem was that the screw that holds the bayonet was missing. I was lucky that the bayonet was still with the rifle. Many of theCalvary Carbines had their bayonets removed by people that wanted them lighter for hunting. Most often the three parts, screw, nut and spring that attach the bayonet to the rifle were lost. Finding replacement parts have been almost impossible for years due to the fact that spare parts were not imported that I know of. The few that would turn up from time to time were from rifles that were parted out. I was able to get a bolt body from an old Collector I know, but finding the bayonet parts were nowhere to be found. A couple of weeks ago, my buddy Matt sent me a link to a guy that was selling reproduction parts for Carcano rifles. I ordered the bayonet screw parts for right at $24. When they arrived I was impressed. The parts were very well made and had a dark blue finish, and the fit was perfect. But here’s the problem. The rifle did not have an easy pass. It had seen some hard use back in the day and the new parts just looked out of place. To get the parts to match I put the screw and nut into some vinegar for about 30 minutes. I then cleaned and coated them with salt water. After a few days I had a light film of rust. I then cleaned and oiled the parts. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. KTALL Enterprises Inc. out of Ravenna OH. Is where I got the parts. They also make several other parts.
