This is a WWII bring home from by buddy's Uncle who brought home 3 of these, but the other 2 were lost over the years. He served in Italy with the 88th Div. Field Artillery. It is in really nice original and functional condition. The finish is abut 90% and complete with the original GIL markings. The stock is very solid and without issues; it also has the correct markings. There is a slight chip missing next to the butt plate, but nothing too bad. The trap door on the butt plate has broken off, but I have it. I think it cold be fixed without too much trouble. The front site is missing the top screw. Overall, this is a really nice example with only several very small issues. This is a rare item, which does not come up for sale too often. Sorry, I can't ship this out of the U.S..

This is the rare tropical version of the common camo one we see so often. It is still nice and dark with original metal buttons and sewn corners. When Italy surrendered the Germans shipped mass amounts military material out, to the Reich. Much of it ended up in the Czech Republic.
