Had the fortunate pleasure to conduct a deal with an honorable, and venerable vendor at the Tulsa gun show today. A fantastic experience, allowing me to meet some fellow board members and additional vendors with similar collecting parameters. This Finn captured M38 carbine isn't the prettiest, but it is a very hard to find item. The first of it's kind I actually have seen in person. I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to acquire it. Even harder to find them with the same numbers on the parts it was issued with. Slight rust here and there, splotchily covering a slightly faded blued metal surface with a nice patina on it. The stock seems to have original cartouches in tact, with screw in sling slot escutcheons and is a pre war pattern. They still look pretty sharp considering it's age. Bore is nice. Shiny with decently sharp lands and grooves.
