Firstly, It is NOT a is a Fucile Corto M38 (or more corecttly M91/38, as it is in 6,5mm) Layman's terms, a "Short Rifle".

As to the straight bolt, even though the M38 series were designed and left the factory with a turned-down Bolt handle, during Service and afterwards( Surplussing) they sometimes acquired a straight handled bolt, just because it could even be "after-market" as well.

Find a Beretta-marked bolt, and the Short Rifle will be more "true to form"...Note that all the Italian factories also used "contractor-made" Bolts and other Parts as well.
so even a "Rocca" or other marked bolt would be appropriate.
