Carcano Model 38 Cavalry / Paratrooper Carbine 7.35X51

The Italian Carcano Model 38 carbine was used by both the Italian cavalry and the Regia Aeronauticas (paratroopers) and is one of those few military arms with a folding bayonet. In addition to that it features a 17-5/8 barrel, fixed rear sight set for 200 meters and is chambered for 7.35X51mm Carcano. Stock and action serial numbers match and there are no import marks. It retains about 95% blue while the bore is perfectly smooth with strong, sharp rifling (we used a Hawkeye bore scope and found no degradation at all and even the microscopic circumferential tool marks are evident at the throat and on the rifling leads indicating very little use) and the stocks are completely sound with relatively few dings and bashes for a surplus arm of this period. The extraordinary bore condition of this carbine makes it a rare find indeed. If you have questions please email us at This will be listed for auction on Gun Broker the evening of July 2nd.
