Default unknown rifle

Saw an old military bolt action rifle today that had "FAT 92" stamped on the bolt cover underneath a crown. The tag said "unknown" with a price of $149.
What is it?

Stamped FAT, huh? Rosie O'Donnell's rifle? In all likelihood, it is an Italian Carcano- since FAT is the stamp from the Italian Arsenal. Fabrica Armi Terni. But just a wild guess on my part.

It probably is an Italian Carcano. As mentioned above the letters FAT DO stand for Fabbrica Armi Terni . This is a list of Carcano's used during the war. Look at some of the pictures at the link below (under infantry weapons) and see if any match up to the rifle you have. Also from what I have read

http://books.google.com/books?id=Kqm5J6W1VuQC&pg=PA345&lpg=PA345&dq=Fabric a+Armi+Terni&source=web&ots=l9U39UDnYA&sig=VdhsIcA WzEPN2x5zPCAwMV-nGak&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=2&ct=result# PPA344,M1

This link gives a whole history of Fabbrica Armi Terni and the Carcano rifle- http://books.google.com/books?id=Eq2Dnj4sDZIC&pg=PA272&lpg=PA272&dq=Histor y+of+Fabbrica+Armi+Terni&source=web&ots=saoBr6NBxQ &sig=bWQy30OoBczQHi0pU3fXB5BwBFM&hl=en&sa=X&oi=boo k_result&resnum=1&ct=result
