Offered for sale is this very nice example of the fabled Carcano M.38 short rifle manufactured at Terni as used by Italian forces during WW2, mainly in North Africa where this was likely to have been captured (along with around 600,000 Italian soldiers).

The M.38 is the last of the Carcano rifles to be made by the Italians as after they were supplied with Lee Enfields by the British immediately after the war & were then provided with M1 Carbines by the US after that.

This presents in excellent condition & as all original with all visible numbers matching.

Do your own research & you will know if this is for you. Please view the photos carefully & make your decision based on what you see as they form the main description & override all written information. Ask for more if desired.

We are offering this rifle as a collectable piece of military history & acknowledge the terrible behaviour by the Italian Fascist regime & some of its military, particularly toward the peoples of Abyssinia & Ethiopia. In no way do we condone or glorify fascism which must be remembered for the vile stain on human history that it was.

We think we have described it accurately & correctly but do not claim to be infallible so if we have got anything wrong, it is unintentional & are happy for feedback from people who know more than we do.

Whilst we check these out for serviceability, the warranty has expired & this is sold on an ‘as is’ basis. As with all used guns, we recommend you have this checked by a suitably qualified person prior to shooting.

We have a pretty unique refund policy on our collectable guns whereby we will refund your money if it is not as described when you receive it. Just let us know before you decide to send it back.
