One of my favorite M-N's! (the other is the M39) I have two of them myself. If you've never seen it, the fireball from an M38 at dusk is beautiful. Hah!

Just make sure it's firmly against your shoulder when ya fire off a round. I know a guy who didn't and got a filling shook loose.

Oh yeah, and this is my first post guys, but I've been lurking for a while .

I got in online at GunBrokers.com. The guy I got it from was called milstuff. There are some good buys and some way overpriced buys. Of course you have shipping fees. He has some 91/30s and M44s and I am not sure if there was anymore M38s.
