This is a very nice all original Russian M38 Mosin Nagant Carbine that was manufactured at the Izhevsk Arsenal in 1943. Mechanically this carbine works great and is sure to be an excellent shooter. This carbine is import marked at the end of the barrel. This carbine has the original M38 stock and not a replacement M44 stock as many of these do. There are a few repairs on the stock as can be seen in the photos. This is a great original carbine that shows issued use.
