I've played with a lot of Carcanos, and I've never had one with a truly bad trigger, and only had a couple (both Terni) with rough bolts. Most of the WWII ones were a bit clunky in operation - especially compared to pre-war models, but the same guys who will dump on them for rough bolts and bad triggers will also glaze over and wax ecstatic about their Mosins - so it is all subjective. I've played with a Gardone, a Beretta and an Armaguerra that all had very slick bolts, and triggers at least as good as anything on a Mauser of the period, and often better. I've never shot a 7.35 Carcano, but I have shot them in 6.5 Carcano and 6.5 Jap, and accuracy is really good for the period. I think contemporary testing of the time came up with a roughly 3.8 MOA. I can get Minute-of-Coke-Can at 50 yards, easy, but I can't get 3.8. One of the gun review channels claimed 4.3 MOA with the Steinel ammo - which is designed to match the original bullet profile. All I've ever had access to was the PPU, and I can't reliably hit a cow pie at 100 - which is pretty much my gold standard for accuracy. I also have some weird WWI-produced ammo that was packaged in WWII clips that came in a sealed box of late-war surplus (the box date matched the clips). Because it is so unique I have never fired any. I traded off all but one clip to collectors and friends, but I still have one clip proudly displayed in my collection. I'd love to know the story behind those.
