6.5mm Carcano - Manufacturer ID please?


#1

Is anyone able to identify the manufacturer of this round? Does the 41 indicates the year of production?


#2

I do not know who C A was, but have several of their rounds in my collection.

Yes, 41 is 1941. I read the C as being March but can not confirm this.


#3

I read somewhere that “C A” can be Century Arms, but that would be much more modern.


#4

Yeah… definitely not Century Arms in this context.


#5

C.A is the designation for inspector Cavallo Alfredo at Pirotecnico Regio Esercito Capua e Bologna , Italy from 1939 to 1942.

The manufacturer is indicated by the letter ‘C’ and is Pirotecnico di Capua.

And the inspector’s name is rendered surname first. Jack
