This is an updated and modernized version of the model 1908 short rifle. It was manufactured by the Brazilian Government at the Itajuba Arms Plant in 30 '06 caliber. The wood is local to Brazil. The bolt is matched to the receiver(2494). The bolt appears to be chromed(high polish). The rifle finish is at least 90% faded bluing with the buttplate being bare metal. . The wood finish is shinny. There is a repair at the heel of the buttstock. It appears to be a wood putty(see pictures). The bore is good with rifling and the grooves show signs of corrosive ammunition use(light pitting). There is a very small CAI import mark on the barrel near the front sight.
