The is a very nice all original Italian M38 Carcano cavalry carbine that was manufactured by Gardone V.T. Mechanically this carbine is in excellent working order and is sure to be a great shooter. This carbine is not import marked and is most likely a WWII bringback. The stock is not matching, but fits well and is more than likely a period replacement. These are great little carbines that are fun to shoot and is an interesting WWII collectible.
