    Nice rifle. Try Gun Parts in N.Y. or Springfield Sporters in Pa.. Also the sling is not correct. Rich A. in Pa.

    This is the M1938 Cavalry carbine in 6.5mm calibre-the '40' is 1940, the Roman numerals 'XVIII' are for manufacture 18 years after Mussolini came to power in 1922 i.e 1940-he fancied himself as a new Caesar-parts should be available as many of the large array of carbines were sold off postwar as cheap hunting rifles (see Lee H Oswald).

    Hi Lithgow,I agree with you on the date stamping,however the rear sight is from an 1891 model,perhaps that is a rework date?

    Hello Zwerge-for some reason known only to them, the Italians had fixed 200m rear sights on the 7.35mm M1938 CCs but the standard 6.5mm models had the adjustable sight as per the earlier models of rifles and carbines-those wacky Fascsti!

    Hi,this book is what I was basing my remarks on,but books have been wrong before? I believe the proper name for it is M91/38.
