In mint condition we have a very early 1942 production FNA Brescia manufactured Italian Army WW2 issued Carcano Model 38 Carbine in 6.5 Carcano Caliber. This manufactured continued to use the early style rear sight unlike the other makers that used the fixed rudimentary rear sight. This also has a very crisp and clear stock cartouche which really make this thing pop! The bore is mint and the parts that are supposed to be numbered match. This is probably the nicest condition M38 Carcano Carbine that we have ever come across. These little carbines were ubiquitously carried by all sides in the Mediterranean Theater of operations and are easily recognized by the very distinctive folding bayonet. You will see photos of Tito’s partisans carrying them and you will see them in the hands of most any of the combatants. They are sort of like a bolt action version of an M1 carbine, just a handy little weapon. This is a great example of the iconic Italian WW2 carbine.
