No, there isnt a caliper marked any where, I used my caliper it reads 6.21mm inside diameter at the end of the barrel. What I wanna know, with the shorten stock, would it be safe to shoot? I plan on cleaning it really good. The bolt action and pin fire is tight and operates good.

6.5 Carcano Italian is correct. There is a clip you have to have if you want the rifle to feed more than one at a time by hand. You can find one online.

They have very little value aside other military rifles but are pleasantly accurate, and ammo can be found here and there. I believe if memory does not fail me, a rifle as this was used by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas
with a scope.

Is that rifle safe to shoot with a rigged stock? Or should I buy a full length stock and upper hand guard? pleasantly accurate??? I called sam down at the cutting edge armory he said it isnt a accurate rifle. Of course i have been given bad advice from him before.

Oh sure. That's what they want you to believe...

Sorry, couldn't resist.

People 'sporterize' guns to reduce the extra weight associated with the old wood-intensive military stocks, or to achieve their aesthetic vision of whatever constitutes a 'pretty rifle'.
