In very good all matching condition we have a fairly hard to find Terni Arsenal made 1941 dated Italian Army M38 Carcano Short Rifle in 6.5 caliber, with a German sling and the scarce folding bayonet and the rarely seen 3 piece cleaning rod. The M38 Short Rifle was the main Italian WW2 Service Rifle in the North African and Mediterranean Theaters although it was only one of several widely used variants such as the long rifle and the ubiquitous carbine models with the long folding bayonets. While these rifles are very commonly encountered in 7.35 caliber, the 6.5 caliber version is much more difficult to locate. Also of note, as you all probably are aware of, this was the model that was used to Assassinate JFK in 1963. If you ate looking for a good example of the Italian Service Rifle of the North African Campaign here you go.
