just recently came into a RE 1939 terni 7.35 mk 17 bolt action appears to be missing clip but i may still find it in my grandmothers house....so how about a little history and background lesson please??? Gun is in perfect condition minues the missing clip and sling...and possibly bayonet????

It's an Italian M91/38 Carcano carbine. Terni is the arsenal where it was made.

That Carcano... that's a Mauser type bolt and a Manlicher (sp?) type clip/magazine set-up. IIRC, it's a 6rd en bloc and that falls out the bottom after the last round is chambered.
