Also, check the tang to see if there is a five-pointed star marking there (or check for a star anywhere else on the receiver); a star indicates refurbishment, so if you have a refurbed receiver and a reworked barrel, it's likely that your M38 started out as an 1895 production Model 1891 and got totally reworked as an M38; this was not uncommon on the early M38s. The original Mod. 1891 magazine, trigger/sear group and bolt (with its handle bent) could have been, and probably were, refurbished. Ralph
