For my custom/kitbashed Italian figures I needed rifles.  However, it is very hard to find any one who makes WW2 Italian rifles.  I made these using Formative's early M-1 Carbine and converted them into M1891 Carcano Carbines.
The finished one on this page was painted by Jeff Finney.  I made up a batch of about 16 of these of which Jeff painted three.  The rest were painted by Fred Sandoval of the Inland Empire.
