It's an Italian M91/38 Carcano carbine. Terni is the arsenal where it was made.
More info here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carcano).

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.
