My Carcano project
      20/03/22 04:45 AM

I had a Carcano action in the mix and had wondered what to do with it, after seeing Lancaster's project the light bulb went off. So this is really a case of blatant plagiarism. The barrel is a Howa 7.62 x 39, I made a bushing to resize it to the receiver and re-chambered. The stock is a NOS Boyd laminated that I found on the internet. Still waiting a new bolt handle and perhaps cutting the forearm back 4 inches to give a better balance. It feeds and shoots very well and will handle both brass and steel case ammunition.
I do need a scope mount for it but having a difficult time finding one that will work, so if anyone can help with identifying a mount that will work I would appreciate the information.
