To say it in a timeline it goes like this. When I got into collecting mil-surps eventually it got to "well now I need a Carcano". Of course I planned on just having one, and when I found a 91/41 at a gunshow in 2008 for $150.00 I got it (see photo 1). It was a FAT 41 and while it didn't do great groups it held a group of some sort with Prvi ammo (see photo 2) So then, at a gunshow so sometime latter saw another one in nice condition, again around $150 so I got it (see photo 3). It is a Armaguerra made but has a bent bolt, bolt is marked "AB". Now I don't know if someone bent it or if it is mismatched but it is a sticky bolt when ejecting. Began to worry about head space and safety issues because and it sat in my closet for years. After reading on the net that supposedly Carcano bolts can be interchanged I recently tried it again and it works just is sticky to eject. My first Carcano the FAT 41 got stolen in 2009, every once in a while I hit pawn shops hoping to spot it but I haven't. So having lost it, and having the other with a hard to use bolt this year was a Carcano year for me got a 1891 Roma at a gun show and two FAT 42 off gunbroker in really nice condition. (See photos 4, 5 and 6). Now what happened this year is, after testing the bent bolt one again, the two FAT 42 91/41 and the Roma 1891 with Prvi ammo is photo #7. It became apparent that .264 Prvi won't hold a group for nothing in any of them shots are all over the place. Only my first Caracno that got stolen was able to sort of. This week I had a box of Hornady 160 gr that actually came with my first Carcano in the deal and after testing the two FAT 42 91/41 with it low and behold got decent grouping although shooting way high see photos 8 and 9. There use to be a member named Vaarok who posted here that was a mil-surp guru who suggested "Now for the big caveat. BURY the front sight in the rear notch, with the point all the way down in there, and then line your target up between the top edges of the rear notch. So yeah, using a regular sight picture, they shoot quite a bit high." That would help to hit on target but not the most accurate way at 100 yds. A tall front sight replacement would be better. But the ammo situation giving that Hornady is over $1 a round is expensive to shoot a Carcano. If only Prvi did .268 instead of .264. Unless you reload, I don't yet. The Carcaco 91/41 and M91 I like the balance and feel, it can be as accurate as a Mauser from what I see this last time out using Hornady, if only Prvi would do .268 and a tall front sight was available.
