A friend recently aquired and old rifle but it didn't come with a clip/magazine.

I took the rifle to see if I could track one down for him. It appears to be an old Carcano rifle. The only marking on the receiver is "Terni" which I'm assuming is the place of manufacture in Italy and 6.5.
It looks like it uses a clip that would be loaded from the top and would drop out the bottom when empty, is that right?

I went over to Numrich gun parts Corp and they list 3 different models: 1891, 38 and 91/38.
How can I tell which rifle I've got so can order a clip /magazine?

Is ammo still available for these rifles?
What would it be? 6.5 X ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Type in "Carcano".

I have 3 extra if you want to buy them.8$ including shipping. I get them from a guy at the San Francisco gun show. He sells them with the ammo attached. They are around if you look hard enough. If you can find the ammo under $1 a round buy it. The clips can be reused over and over.
