You pose an interesting question. I did not consider myself to be an Italian collector other than having an interest because of a few things I have. That said, I went and counted seven rifles (including a grenade launching rifle with launcher) and three service handguns. I guess I am more involved than I thought.

one of my M38 short rifles still has its origional long rifle serial # and its new serial # when the barrel was reused for its 7.35 upgrade.

I have 3 a 38 short rifle (in need of a hand gurad and front band) a 91 long rifle (made in 1893 refurbed ( Tubatta marked ) in the 1920's and a Type I made for japan by Beretta.
Check Sarco and Springfield Sporters for the 38SR stuff. I think Sarco had handguards advertised recently.

I just have a 91TS made in 1902 now. Beautiful bore and crossed rifles and bullseye with no import markings. Used to have a Vetterli in 6.5 and a 91 long rifle made at Terni in 1917. Hated to sell those. Am on the lookout for others that are reasonably priced at shows but haven't seen that many in this neck of the woods for a while. Saw an outragously priced Vetterli with a Bubbaized stock for $225:eek: at a recent show.
