    What BP Bill said + polish all bearing surfaces including the trigger bars where they bear on the sear (Leave the tumbler notches alone!). Lube with your favorite lubricant and reassemble. Btw, I did this with a Lyman (Investarms) GPR and it made...

    ...............That's some fine work for an M1 Carbine. It's only reason for being was to give officers and the men of crew served weapons something better then a pistol with which to shoot back. A friend of mine was a Marine and was attached to...

    ...........I believe those jacketed slugs I'd used were from Hornady, and were made FOR the 7.35 Carcano. At the time, Dave Emary at Hornady was doing quite a bit of work with some of the Milsurp rifles' requirements for odd bullet ODs coming back...

    .............I had an Italian Carcano for several years, chambered 6.5x52. Shot it enough to prove that it was a capable firearm. Not long after I sold it I acquired another Carcano, and this one was 7.35 x 51. I forget who made the 6.5mm but this...
