This is a very nice all original Italian M-38 short rifle chambered in 7.35mm Carcano. This rifle is in good condition and has never been refinished or messed with in any way. The bore is very good. It is shiny and retains strong rifling. The wood is matching to the receiver serial number and is in good original condition. There is one spot of blue paint that is near the rear band. This is a Finnish [SA] marked rifle. Originally made in 1939 at the Terni arsenal.
