Fair condition for the price. Absolutely filthy and not much finish remaining. but the bore cleaned up nicely and shows decent rifling.

M38 Carcano Short Rifle
July 4, 2020
Thomas from Kentucky
Received the M38 Carcano Short Rifle a couple of weeks ago. Not expecting too much considering the price, but I was pleasantly surprised! The metal has only about 10% of the bluing left, the stock was very grimy, and the bore was filthy. But after about 2 hours of cleaning I am left with a good looking Mil-Surp rifle! A decent amount of rifling in the bore and the action works very smoothly. No cracks in the stock. The ammo will be pretty expensive, but can be found. A fine example of Italian WWII military weapons.
