Italian Model 38 Cavalry Carbine 7.35x51mm

$449.99

This is a very nice and hard to find variation of the Italian M38 Cavalry Carbine chambered in 7.35mm Carcano.  This rifle was rebored to 7.35mm by the Italians during WWII when they unsuccessfully tried to recaliber their armed forces from 6.5mm Carcano.  This is an interesting conversion in that they have replaced the rear sight with the fixed rear sight marked “7.35mm”.  They have also used a stock that was once used with a grenade launcher.  This carbine is not import marked and is most likely a WWII bringback.  It comes with an original leather Carcano sling that is a little rough, but is complete and has not been messed with.  If you’re looking for a very interesting and hard to find Carcano variation with lots of history, here is your chance!
