These M-38s are in excellent condition!  This is the first shipment we have received in years.  

 In 1938 a carbine was adopted as the "7,62 mm Carbine, Model of the Year 1938", commonly known as the M38 in the US, but did not go into production until 1939. It is essentially a shorter version of the M91/30 and was built at Izhevsk until 1945. There was limited production at Tula in 1940 and again in 1944. Both arsenals built some M38s on recycled receivers, both hex and round. Tula M38s are uncommon at the least and sought after by collectors as are 1939 and 1945 dated examples. The M38 was not designed to accept a bayonet since it's intended use was by rear area troops. Stocks made in 1939 and early 1940 had the rear barrel band shoulder close to the rear sight base but this was soon moved forward to bring the pattern in line with the typical M91/30 stock configuration, with the exception of the fore-end.

Received the M38 quickly. The rifle was in overall good shape, very small amount of cosmoline left in the chamber. This rifle is as accurate as you could expect a military rifle with open sights to be. I plan on putting a scout scope on it because my eye's are not that good any more, ( old age) happens to all of us if we live long enough. This one shoots 180 grainers better than the 147's. Very happy with purchase and the service from Bud's. Thanks

First time ordering from Buds and was received in excellent condition, M44 Stock. Serials were all matching. Was expecting cosmoline to be caked all over rifle but it was actually relatively free of it, requiring mostly just a regular cleaning.

Absolutely recommend. This is not my first purchase from buds and won't be my last. This gun is a bit pricey for a Mosin but it is a great gun. Matching numbers this time but with a Mosin you roll the dice with S/N's. quick shipping and tracking. Packed in a plain brown box. Nice rifle overall exc. condition just a couple small scrapes in the wood possible from shipping. Military surplus doesn't get any better than this one. Love it. Thank you

I was VERY happy when I receive my M38 from Buds---it came in a few days --and was just as advertised . REALLY a clean gun for being 71 years old and being a WWII weapon ---Stock is clean and is in very good condition,on a scale of 1 to 10-Iwould call it a 9. Bluing is like new--bore is really clean and bright--not counter bored ---after just a little time, I was able to clean it up and admire it. This gun is so nice, I think I will buy the good ammo for this one---save my surplus stuff for the 91/30----. I am just happy to have gotten a M38 this nice. Like most of them, it came with a m44 stock----but if you are hung up on that--I guess you have to go to the gun shows and pay the price for a hand picked item. If you can find one like this --BUY IT--it is worth every penny.THANKS BUDS!!!!!!!!
