Good advise, Thanks
I havn't been to a gun show before, besides living out in the middle of nowhere, my taste in firearms has been basic and utilitarian until getting this little Carcano. I did not expect to get so hooked on these older eu rifles.
This is like combining a love of hot rods, antique furniture, woodworking, and hunting, all my favorite things!
Chiefr, thanks for the advise, I am much more interested in the foreign military rifles, and somehow find the Carcanos very appealing. I think it will make a perfect deer/hog gun.
I may risk going late the second day in hopes of finding a decent inexpensive parts gun.
What is another moderate recoil, 100+/- yard, nice style, fun shooter to research? I should probably post this in another thread...
