is this the right place to try to identify a WWII Italian rifle? rarity? value?
Are there collectors looking for guns like these?I'd have to know a lot more about condition to estimate a real price. Based on the three pictures, maybe $100?
Bolts can still be found sometimes. If the wood is decent, and the bore is good, maybe more $.
Here's a recent auction on a complete rifle.

Thanks. It doesn't have any sentimental value as it wasn't his firearm when he served. I'm just wondering if it's worth looking for someone to buy it (would anyone want it as is) or is it basically a worthless piece of junk? It's been in the family 'for ever'. Someone once told me it's similar to the gun that killed JFK. Can't confirm or deny that on ANY levelAre there collectors looking for guns like these?
Next question: is it legal to own, sell, ship it? I have no licenses, permits, etcThere's some value there. Not a lot, but someone will buy it.
Posted on Gunbroker to reach the widest possible audience is your best bet. Good pictures and an honest description. Need to figure out shipping costs so you don't get burned. I can't say what it will go for of course. If you can unload it for some cash, it's probably better than having an old beater leaning in the corner.
That's funny. On pawn stars they always say guns have to be from before 1898 to be able to buy and sell without license. Maybe that's just a pawn shop thing. Thanks very much for your time and help!That's a state by state question, and I don't know all the laws. In most states it's legal to own, sell, and ship. In most states you can ship that yourself to an FFL or a C&R holder in the same or another state. In most states you can sell that directly to anyone not forbidden from owning a firearm.
Anything over 50 years old is considered a Curio & Relic, FYI. That is the C&R license I mentioned.
thank you very muchThose are antiques and not considered firearms. Anything else is either private sale in free states or ffl transfer in non-free states. Anything over 50 is a curio and relic which is a different classification than antique. C&R still requires an ffl, but a C&R license holder holds a limited FFL only valid for C&R items.
that’s the short version anyway.
Carcano bolts?Thanks. Do these pictures help?
