I know its not a Mosin, but I thought maybe some of you would enjoy this. Its my first acquisition since my three year collecting hiatus. I think its a very nice example of a Finn aquired M38 Carcano. Has the correct folding bayonet, and SA marked sling. It also came with about 25 rounds of 7.35 ammo which is hard to find nowadays. Anyways here are the pics...

The only reason I may ever pick up an Italian rifle, would be for an example like this one. Otherwise, absolutely zero interest in anything Italian. Very cool rifle. The bayonet is kind of cool too. Congrats, great find.

A Finnish marked m/38 Corto bayonet will still set you back several hundred

I as well have little to zero interest in Italian firearms, but if it has a finnish mark on it, I become instantly interested in it. Did anybody else notice the "blood pitting" on the tip of the bayonet??..haha
I prize my Finnish acquired firearms just as much as my Finnish made firearms....;)

Dragoons are some of my favorites as well :)

Congratulations on a fine acquisition. I have two but sadly no bayonet to go with them. Be careful, Carcanos are addictive too. Fortunately some of the hardcore Carcano collectors seem to turn their noses up at Finn-marked ones. All the better for us, no?
