5 of 5 Satisfied after missing part replaced December 27, 2020
Reviewer: Randy R from Springfield, Missouri  
I bought one of these that was not the poor condition gunsmith special but that item is no longoer available for review so I thought I would do it here...
The one I received was listed to be in fair to good shootable condition which it certainly is...
The wood and metal finish are worn like you would expect but the rifle is plenty serviceable and the bore is still pretty good...
My only complaint was the cleaning rod was missing which was not mentioned in the description and also the front sling swivel was broken off in the barrel band which I felt was unacceptable for the condition described...
After contacting RTI with my concerns they shipped me a cleaning rod and replacement barrel band and sling swivel at no cost so now I can say I am completely happy with the purchase...

4 of 5 Good Value for Price! October 21, 2020
Reviewer: Jonathan Sosebee from Canton , GA United States  
I received my Carcano (prior to Gunsmith Special) and I have to admit I’m still quite glad I did. While this rifle has definitely seen some use and abuse in its life, it is still serviceable and shootable! The bore only had a few minor spots in it, with relatively good rifling, and while the exterior was worn & had plenty of rust, almost all of it was taken off with some TLC and Barricade Rust Protectant. Bolt was grimy, but cleaned up nicely, 100% intact bolt lugs, and the interior of the receiver was in similar state, very good for a 102 year old carbine! Definitely a good rifle, if any more come in id probably grab another! Bonus points for very clean AOI stamp on the Buttstock, speaks to the history of this rifle!

Rifle was receive on Friday. The box was well packed, thank you. I checked the rifle looks to be good condition. Just a few minor cracks that I can repair. Dirty as was expected, should clean up well. Thank you for the excellent customer service.

5 of 5 Nice rifle September 4, 2020
Reviewer: Rich from Wisconsin  
I got one that is in good condition. The bore is pretty much shoot out,  but there is still some rifling. The crown is gone and a VERY DIRTY BORE. But the rifle has the stepped barrel, which means the middle section was removed and the twist gain was kept.  Built in Terni in 1915 then remade into the carbine at Terni in 1928! As a reloader I will slug the barrel and get some bullets to fit and it should shoot good. The exposed finish is gone, under the wood is very nice bluing. No pitting, the stock has some kind of silver tacks pounded into it and you can see holes where some must have fell out or been removed! I was thinking of doing a restore, but with the tacks on the stock Im going to leave it as is. Thanks royal tiger import! great find!

5 of 5 Happy with my Purchase. August 28, 2020
Reviewer: PHILLIP from Mississippi  
I got my rifle in today, it looked better than the stock picture. It was just what I wanted, a rifle with some history behind it and a little personality with its worn finish & scratched up stock. The bore is good and cleaned right up. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Thinking about buying another one :)

3 of 5 Not a review July 29, 2020
Reviewer: Joe from N/A  
This is not a Review. In the description, it is said that there is a $50 Hand Select option when there is only a $100 Antique option. Just pointing out the discrepancy.
