Just got a lightly sporterized M38 Carcano carbine that was used by Finland during WWII. I'd love to find some 7.35mm ammo in this state for it, as well as some clips, and even better still, an unmodded M38 carbine stock and handguard. Any carcano stuff out there in WA?

For the prices they are getting for carcano ammo, I can nearly buy new production reloadable stuff. I already checked gunbroker before posting this of course. What I'm hoping to find is someone with either M38 Carcano carbine parts or 7.35mm ammo running around locally.

A milsurp stock and fittings for a M1938 goes for almost the same price as a milspec M1938,

I had a 6.5 and a SA marked 7.35mm I combined partsto finish the 7.35then sold off the remaining shootable6.5mm gun

Gunbroker is going to be your best bet for the enblocks, or maybe epay , Buffaloarms.com sells the 7.35mm brass and projectiles (.298 bore)

I know. Anyone with a computer and the ability to type "7.35 Carcano" can find that. As you will see from the post, I'm trying to find some stuff here. In Washington. Local. Kind of a long shot to see if anyone had some stuff running around.
