I'm hoping someone can chime in and help me with my carcano type rifle. It's missing the rear sight and the bolt. The only markings I found were on the base of the barrel. The markings read "Roma 917". I would really like to get this rifle up and running. Any help is appreciated.

Roma 917 is the only markings I've found that could indicate the model of the rifle.

Lone Wolf go to www.e-sarcoinc.com and you will find the Carcano parts. I did see some bolt parts listed. If that does not work just go to Google and type in where to find Carcano parts and you will get a list of places to visit.

If I was to buy the stripped bolt for around $20 bucks, what else would I need other than firing pin, spring, cocking piece etc.

Your best bet may be to buy another Carcano for parts. Here's one for $40---and it's pretty much complete.

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=480189606

Unless the gun has some serious sentimental value (your favorite uncle brought it home from WWII??) or you just want
to try your skills at gunsmithing on something that's no great loss if you botch it, there are better choices out there.

Carcano ammo is a bit hard to find, and it's a bit pricey. The ammo clip (yes, not a magazine) falls out after the last shot,
and the safety is almost as much of an abomination as the one on a Arisaksa. The Carcano's only claim to fame is that it
is probably the last military issue rifle ever to use gain twist rifling. (well--that and the Kennedy thing)

If you really like the look of old military iron, Mosin Nagant, SKS, Hakim, Mausers in 47 flavors, the SMLE and lots of other options that
are not crazy spendy or hard to feed might be a better choice.
